We have recently demonstrated that pyridoxine, a precursor of vitamin B6, increases the immunogenicity of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cells succumbing to cisplatin (cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II), CDDP). Accordingly, pyridoxine promoted the antineoplastic activity of CDDP in NSCLC-bearing mice only in the presence of an intact immune system. These findings may have implications for the development of novel strategies to circumvent CDDP resistance.
