Pulling the plug on calcium pumps — potential new treatment strategy for pancreatic cancer

UK scientists have identified a new way to kill pancreatic cancer cells by ‚pulling the plug‘ on the energy generator that fuels calcium pumps on their cell surface. The study reports how switching off the cancer’s energy supply causes the pancreatic cancer cells to become ‚poisoned‘ by an irreversible build-up of calcium.
