Dr Vuk Stambolic - Ontario Cancer Institute, Toronto, Canada

Dr Stambolic talks about the effects and mechanisms of the drug, metformin, at the AACR 2012 Annual Meeting in Chicago.  


It has been discovered that direct effects of metformin use the mTOR pathway, similar to a number of other drugs; however a number of indirect pathways are now being explored through a phase I clinical trial.
