Objective: Previous investigations revealed that the dipeptide carnosine inhibits the growth of cells derived from malignant glioma. Since it was suggested that carnosine protects non-tumor cells from oxidative stress and alkylating agents, we wondered how tumor cells would respond the treatment with[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
