When cancer cells are damaged by radiotherapy, much of the damage is repaired, limiting how much each dose of radiation achieves. If we reduce that capacity for repair, by drastically reducing one of the vital ingredients for DNA, then melanoma cells should become more liable to terminal damage with radiotherapy. We are looking at a particular way to reduce the melanoma cells’ supply of folate, a DNA precursor, to test this idea.
