Abstract Rapid cell death, as evidenced by a decrease in cell counts, was observed when molt-4-lymphoblastoid cells, a human leukemia cell line, were exposed to holotransferrin (12 microM) and dihydroartemisinin (1-200 microM). Incubation with either compound alone was significantly less effective. Significantly less cell death was observed when normal human lymphocytes were exposed to a combination of these 2 drugs. Probit analysis of dose-response functions shows that the drug combination is approximately 100 times more effective on molt-4 cells than lymphocytes (LD50s for molt-4 and lymphocytes were 2.59 microM and 230 microM, respectively). This drug combination may provide a novel approach for cancer treatment.
