Disease relevance of Ce-Cyd


High impact information on Ce-Cyd

  • The putative target enzyme for both the antiviral and antitumor action of Ce-Cyd is assumed to be the CTP synthetase that converts UTP to CTP [2].
  • Ce-Cyd also has potent cytocidal activity against a number of tumor cell lines [2].
  • Ce-Cyd should be further pursued, as such and in combination with OMP decarboxylase inhibitors, for its therapeutic potential in the treatment of both viral and neoplastic diseases [2].
