Boosting antitumor immune
response by blocking glycolysis
A study in mice suggests
blocking glycolysis with a small molecule could help enhance an antitumor
immune response. In a mouse tumor model, a combination of the
chemotherapeutic agent etoposide with a low dose of the
glycolysis inhibitor 2-deoxy-d-glucose
increased an antitumor T cell response and survival and decreased tumor size
compared with either treatment alone. Next steps include testing 2-DG in
combination with other chemotherapeutics.
In 2011, Threshold
Pharmaceuticals Inc. discontinued development of 2-DG,
which was in Phase I testing for solid tumors.
