PXR: A stepping stone from environmental chemical to cancer?
PXR: A stepping stone from environmental chemical to cancer?: "Several chemicals that can accumulate to high levels in our body (for example, BPA and some pesticides) have been recently linked to an increased risk of cancer and/or impaired responsiveness to anticancer drugs. A team of researchers, led by Sridhar Mani, at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, has now identified a potential mechanistic link between environmental exposure to these foreign chemicals (xenogens) and cancer drug therapy response and survival."
