Glucose Deprivation Activates Feedback Loop That Kills Cancer Cells, Study Shows

ScienceDaily (June 26, 2012) — Compared to normal cells, cancer cells have a prodigious appetite for glucose, the result of a shift in cell metabolism known as aerobic glycolysis or the "Warburg effect." 

Researchers focusing on this effect as a possible target for cancer therapies have examined how biochemical signals present in cancer cells regulate the altered metabolic state. Read more.
