A recent study from Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Center for Stem Cell Biology, NYU School of Medicine, 550 First Avenue, New York, USA has reported the role of Notch-regulated lncRNA LUNARI in Acute Leukemia. This study was published in the July 31 2014 Cell (The number 1 journal in basic biology) by Prof Iannis Aifantis, Thomas Trimarchi and others.
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-based therapy for Human Leukemia: Curcumin, the major component of turmeric, inhibits acute leukemia via down regulation of Notch-regulated pro-oncogenic lncRNA LUNAR1. This study suggests that Curcumin, by decreasing the expression of Notch-1 and lncRNA LUNAR1, it may inhibit acute leukemia. Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing “Curcumin or its analogues” may be used to treat patients suffering from leukemia.
