Why is it important?

The current study was designed to highlight the potential mechanism of UA, its anti-cancer properties, and potential applications as therapeutic compound.


This endeavour is a valuable contribution in understanding the hurdles preventing the translation of its potential at clinical level and provides foundations to design new studies that could help enhance its bioavailability and anti-cancer potential for various cancers.
