Dichloroacetate (DCA), a non-patented compound, counteracts a protective mechanism used by cancer cells that prevents glucose products from entering mitochondria, which would send the mitochondria into overdrive, resulting in cell death.
Effects of decreased lactate accumulation after dichloroacetate administration on exercise training-induced mitochondrial adaptations in mouse skeletal muscle.
Some of these metabolic therapies include alpha-lipoic acid, dichloroacetate (DCA), organic germanium, low-dose naltrexone, butyrate, high-dose pancreatic enzymes, and many others.
Dichloroacetate, although decreased the lactate concentration, showed no beneficial effects on the outcome.
For instance, the codrug Bet-CA (a chemical combination of dichloroacetate and betulinic acid) increases ROS production and significantly alters mitochondrial membrane potential gradient ([DELTA][PSI]m), followed by the release of Cyt C which prompts cells to undergo mitochondria mediated apoptosis [119].
dichloroacetate (DCA), AZD7545 and radicicol), the pyruvate analog DCA is the most common classic inhibitor of PDK isoforms, (49) although it has clinically symptomatic side effects of peripheral neuropathy.
Lowering the lactate levels by using dichloroacetate has been shown to improve survival.
