The Redox regulation of lung cancer metastasis by Prof. Martin Bergö

Martin Bergo Sahlhgrenska GUDuring Amman Antioxidants Middle East Congress 2018, Prof. Martin Bergö from Sahlgrenska Cancer Center, Sweden will present a study in which his team found that antioxidant supplementation markedly accelerates metastases in mouse models of lung cancer.

Prof. Bergö plan to present data on the molecular mechanism underlying this pro-metastatic effect which involves antioxidant-mediated activation of a redox-sensitive transcription factor that stimulates the Warburg effect. He will also provide evidence that the same mechanism increases invasiveness of human lung cancer cells and that its expression affects survival of lung cancer patients.
