Combination drug activates calcium channels to trigger deadly influx of calcium ions inside tumor cells

Calcium ions are essential for cells, but can be toxic in higher concentrations. A team of researchers has now designed and prepared a combination drug that kills tumor cells by modulating the calcium influx into the cell. An external calcium source is not necessary because only the calcium ions already present in the tumor tissue are used, according to the study, published in the journal Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
