Therapeutics: Fas-associated via death domain (FADD); receptor-interacting serine-threonine kinase 3 (RIPK3; RIP3)

Cancer INDICATION: Colorectal cancer Mouse studies suggest necroptotic cancer cells could help treat colon cancer. In a mouse colon carcinoma cell line, vector-mediated expression of FADD and RIPK3 increased necroptosis compared with no treatment. In...
