Taurosept taurolidine 2% 5x 6 ml pack antitumor antimicrobial


Available on backorder


Taurolidine is a broad spectrum antibiotic that was derived from the aminosulfoacid Taurine. Shown to be effective against aerobic, anaerobic, gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria as well as fungi and mycobacterium. Found to exhibit antitumor activity with low toxicity, antiangiogenic effects, antiendotoxin activity, and to induce apoptosis of tumor cells; thereby decreasing proliferation of the tumor cells (both in vitro and in vivo). Has been used in studies of alternative chemotherapeutics, and is shown to work synergistically with rhTRAIL doubling the effects of Taurolidine alone. The synergistic response of  Taurolidine and TRAIL may outline a new therapeutic strategy in oncology therapy.
