    Purpose: Doxorubicin is a first-line chemotherapeutic for breast cancer; however, it is associated with severe side effects to non-tumoral tissues. Thus, it is necessary to develop new therapeutic combinations to improve doxorubicin effects at lower concentration of the drug associated with...

    The anthracycline doxorubicin (DOX) is widely used in chemotherapy due to its efficacy in fighting a wide range of cancers such as carcinomas, sarcomas and hematological cancers. Despite extensive clinical utilization, the mechanisms of action of DOX remain under intense debate. A growing body...
