Anticancer activity of cardiac glycosides: At the frontier between cell-autonomous and immunological effects
Cell Cycle Proteins
Protein Phosphatase 1
Retrospective clinical data indicate that cardiac glycosides (CGs), notably digoxin, prolong the survival of carcinoma patients treated with conventional chemotherapy. CGs are known to influence the immune response at multiple levels. In addition, recent results suggest that CGs trigger the immunogenic demise of cancer cells, an effect that most likely contributes to their clinical anticancer activity.
