Paper Title:

"Therapeutic starvation and autophagy in prostate cancer: A new paradigm for targeting metabolism in cancer therapy"

Abstract:

Autophagy is a starvation induced cellular process of self-digestion that allows cells to degrade cytoplasmic contents. The understanding of autophagy, as either a mechanism of resistance to therapies that induce metabolic stress, or as a means to cell death, is rapidly expanding and supportive of a new paradigm of therapeutic starvation.
