Chemotherapeutics research. ROS, free radical. Containing oxygen, it is an unstable molecule that easily reacts with other molecules in a cell. A build up of reactive oxygen species in cells may cause damage to DNA, RNA, and proteins, and may cause cell death. Napabucasin is a STAT3 inhibitor that blocks stem cell activity. As a cancer therapy Napabucasin causes increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) which results in cancer cell death.
