I came across this study here and I'm not sure if the results are actually positive or negative. It says that Tianeptine interferes with the life cycles of certain brain cells. :confused:

Pheochromocytoma, are basically cancerous cells that once were chromafin which reside in the medullar adrenal glands. Its basically saying tianeptine disrupts the division of cells with onconogenes, that are cancerous.

it does this by increasing proteins that are responsible for signaling apoptosis which are what signal a cell to die if its defective. When a cell goes cancerous, its usually because it cant produce these proteins to self destruct. It also disrupts the division itself by disrupting the microtubules that carry chromatin across the mitotic spindle into metaphase.

So this basically means that tiapentine can protect against brain cancer?
