The HeLa human cervical cancer cell line was cultured in EMEM medium with 10% FCS. Anti-tumor activity of Trifluorothymidine was measured.
The rate of tumor growth (IR) inhibition was regarded as a measure of the antitumor efficacy and was calculated using the relative tumor volume (RTV) in the drug-treated groups (T) compared to that in the control group (C) using the following equation: IR (%) = (1 – T/C) × 100.

Cancer Metabolism Poster
Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the main targets for cancer metabolism researchers. Genetic changes and epigenetic modifications in cancer cells alter the regulation of cellular metabolic pathways. These distinct metabolic circuits could provide viable cancer therapeutic targets.
Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
