What is it about?

DDR regulation through modulating ROS homeostasis is under investigation as anticancer opportunity, also in combination with other treatments since ROS affect DDR differently in the patients during cancer development and treatment.

Why is it important?

We highlight ROS-sensitive proteins whose regulation in oxidatively induced DDR might allow for selective strategies against cancer that are better tailored to the patients.


I believe that the data collected in our work may help to define better-tailored therapies with fewer side effects and lower probabilities to promote drug resistance development.
