Within the realm of cancer research and the search for new treatments, one area of interest is that of the relationship between Iron and cancer cells in the body. Iron is the most abundant metal in the body and is responsible for the transport of oxygen and electrons and is required for a wide range of cellular processes to take place such as DNA synthesis, cell cycle regulation, protein function, and more.
In this study, researchers looked at the possibility of treating/preventing cancer by inhibiting the bioavailability of Iron to cancer cells. They hypothesized that this would interrupt the cancer’s cellular cycle and trigger cell death.
