Bisphosphonates induce apoptosis in human myeloma cell lines: a novel anti-tumour activity.
Bisphosphonates are in widespread use to prevent bone resorption in a number of metabolic and tumour-induced bone diseases including multiple myeloma. Recent reports suggest that bisphosphonate treatment may be associated with an increase in patient survival, raising the possibility that these compounds may have a direct effect on the tumour cells. We have investigated whether the bisphosphonates clodronate, pamidronate and YM175 can directly affect the human myeloma cell lines U266-B1, JJN-3...Expand abstract
