Drug repurposing for the inhibition of invasiveness and metastasis of cancer cells
Turchyna, Kateryna ; Brábek, Jan (advisor) ; Jakubek, Milan (referee)
Metastasis is the primary cause of death from cancer. Current lack of medicines for metastasis makes it a topical issue and encourages the global search for molecules that may potentially inhibit invasiveness of cancer cells, and thus prevent metastatic spread. Drug repurposing is a strategy of identifying new uses for approved drugs that are outside the scope of the original medical indication. The aim of this thesis is to summarize knowledge on the repurposing potential of selected groups of drugs with emphasis on molecular mechanisms of their action. In particular, the work is focused on selected antipsychotics, antidepressants, beta- blockers and statins, whose abilities to inhibit cancer invasiveness have been indicated.
