Well, well, well…
A few minutes ago a recently-published Italian study caught my eye. A group of researchers from the University of Messina (Sicily) has discovered that the combined effects of curcumin and carfilzomib (CFZ) are absolutely deadly to multiple myeloma U266 cells. 😎
Here’s the link to the abstract: goo.gl/EBTwcc
As we can read, the researchers conclude the following: “These findings evidence that curcumin can ameliorate CFZ efficacy, and lead us to hypothesize that this effect might be useful to optimize CFZ therapy in MM patients.”
At any rate, I thought this study might be of huge interest to anyone who is taking carfilzomib right now…and so I wrote this quick post! But now I have to get back to my kittens (the vet is coming to visit them day after tomorrow…I so hope she will give us some GOOD NEWS…!!!).
