Researchers have found that Ewing sarcoma cells die if an enzyme called CDK12 is knocked out genetically or chemically inhibited. What’s more, when a CDK12 inhibitor is combined with another drug, called a PARP inhibitor, the two drugs double down to deliver a lethal punch to Ewing sarcoma cells.
The 2018 Australian Sarcoma Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in Perth on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th of October 2018.
