Study about 2-83bromo -2-deoxyglucose, 6-bromo-glucose: Two Trojan Horses for the War against Cancer? – 3-18fluoro-pyruvate as a Probe for Enhanced Expression of Monocarboxylate Transporters in Cancer

Since its discovery almost a century ago (Warburg), the times-fold increase in glycolysis in cancer has been a well-studied impact in cancer research for many years, if not decades, and it is now recognised as the most significant characteristic of cancer. As a result, some researchers have recently suggested...

Antibiotics Impact on Mitochondria Result in Potential Contributions to Carcinogenesis, Coronary pathology, other Medical Conditions and Ecosystem Risks

Calghatgi’s discovery that three popular antibiotics (Abs) enhanced mitochondrial reactive oxygen (ROS) and lipid peroxide (LP) while depleting their natural absorbant glutathione prompted me to look into the potential carcinogenic effects of these genotoxic chemicals. Antibiotics had a wide spectrum of effects on mitochondria and cellular DNA, all of...
