Drug repositioning of substances already in use for other indications is less time and cost consuming. The present work reviews what is known about ouabain and cancer. A wide concentration range, from pM to mM, has been studied in various experimental models. These models considered ouabain’s direct action on tumor cells, effects on the inflammatory and immune responses, as well as the tumor microenvironment.
