Este trabajo contribuye a la investigación de nuevas drogas con actividad antitumoral obtenidas de bacterias como Serratia marcescens


Por su gran actividad antitumoral, este nuevo ciclodepsipéptido –AT514– podría ser usado como una alternativa para el tratamiento de la LLC-B, ya sea solo o combinado con otras drogas, sobre todo en aquellos casos donde se observa resistencia al tratamiento convencional.
