This study aimed to evaluate the anti-tumor effect of a new generation of protease inhibitor, oprozomib (OPZ), used alone and in combination with cisplatin, also called CDDP, on cervical cancer. Five different types of cervical cancer cell lines - HeLa, Caski, HeLa-CDDP, C33a, and SiHa - and one nontransformed cervical cell line - HaCaT -were treated with OPZ alone or in combination with cisplatin. The inhibitory effects of OPZ and cisplatin on the proliferation of cervical cancer cells were then analyzed using cytotoxicity tests, flow cytometry, and Western blotting. Read More
