Starving lethal prostate cancer by targeting heat shock proteins and glycolytic enzymes

Cell Rep Med. 2022 Feb 15;3(2):100493. doi: 10.1016/j.xcrm.2021.100493.


Metastatic prostate cancer remains uncurable. In this issue of Cell Reports Medicine, Rice et al. present an assessment of a compound (SU086) demonstrating activity in prostate cancer models through heat shock protein 90 inhibition and cell metabolism changes.
