The new molecule may be a breakthrough in cancer treatment

Most modern cancer treatments involve induction of enzyme-dependent apoptosis in cancer cells. However, these cells have a great ability to develop resistance to treatment. Many of them can defend themselves against apoptosis, so scientists are still looking for ways to kill them.

In the future, viroptosis may become one of these approaches. It is an iron-dependent form of cell death characterized by the accumulation of lipid peroxides. We know that ferroptosis is genetically and biologically different from other types of cell death, but its detailed mechanisms remain unknown.

Ferrosclerosis is currently being studied not only for cancer treatment. Scientists are studying its role in the development of many pathological processes that occur in both Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease. We know that this mechanism is involved in these processes. This is partly because ferroptosis is still not well understood and is not expected to be used for treatment at this time. But maybe it will happen in the not too distant future.
