Abstract: Glucocorticoids (GCs) are an essential component of most chemotherapy protocols for lymphoid malignancies, particularly childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).1, 2 Nevertheless, adverse side effects of GCs call for improved therapy protocols.
GCs decrease the activity of glycolytic enzymes3 and upregulate the expression of the glycolytic regulator, 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase in vitro and in vivo.4 This led us to investigate whether co-administration of 2-deoxy-glucose (2-DG), an inhibitor of glycolysis, systemic application of which up to a blood concentration of approximately 3 mM had caused a transient hyperglycemia only,5 might potentiate the apoptotic effect of GC.
