This article examines the rationale for combination therapies, mechanisms of resistance, and where to go from here.
Analysis Of Cancer Spheroids Through High-Throughput Screening Assays
In recent years, tumor-derived spheroids have been utilized to optimize cancer therapeutics for ovarian and hepatocellular carcinoma. However, there are some challenges to using spheroids for drug screening. Here we outline different kinds of high-throughput screening (HTS) assays that can be performed on cancer spheroids to assess drug response. We also provide some useful guidelines for handling spheroids and acquiring data to get the most meaningful results.
