Inhibition of Glycolysis

.

Under physiological conditions healthy cells get their energy in form of ATP from mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation. In most tumor cells however an increased glycolysis of D-glucose for energy production known as Warburg effect is observed. The glycolytic phenotype of human endometrial and ovarian cancer cells can be targeted for therapeutic intervention. 

A therapy using both, specific inhibition of glycolysis and GnRH receptor-targeted therapy seems to be suitable for an effective strategy for treatment of above all inoperable, chemotherapy-resistant or recurring endometrial and ovarian cancers and should be further evaluated.
