More Evidence that Cellular ‘Death by Iron’ Could Be Promising Avenue of Cancer Treatment
Cancers with certain mutations are vulnerable to ferroptosis, a form of iron-dependent cell death.
Scientists See Potential in Cellular 'Death by Iron' for Cancer Treatment
This form of cell death is called ferroptosis, and certain cancer cells are especially vulnerable to it.
