Hi,

What is the MOA of glucocorticoid in the treatment against cancer? Which is more predominantly associated with it - inhibition of connective tissue proliferation or apoptosis? :sleepy: Thanks so much in advance!

I think they work on cellular signaling pathway.

But again, my dear, that's not high yield at all. The USMLE will never ask you about this.

Where did you get this, if you don't mind? I didn't see cancer treatment protocols in FA or UW so I was wondering what cancers you might treat with glucocorticoids...

so that means p53 might be involved and also the fas pathway? what other major mechanisms does it involve?
