The effects on cancer cell proliferation and differentiation mediated by Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptors (PPARs) were widely studied, with pleiotropic outcomes in different cancer models and experimental conditions.

Abstract

The effects on cancer cell proliferation and differentiation mediated by Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptors (PPARs) were widely studied, with pleiotropic outcomes in different cancer models and experimental conditions. Interestingly, relatively few studies and preclinical evidences report the potential antitumor activity of PPAR antagonists. This review focuses on recent findings about the antitumor in vitro and in vivo effects observed for compounds able to inhibit the three PPAR subtypes in different tumor models, providing a rationale for the use of PPAR antagonists in the treatment of tumors expressing the corresponding receptors.
