CitationBoominathan, L., Anti-metastasis therapy:  Acarbose, an α-glucosidase inhibitor and widely used drug in the treatment of T2DM, suppresses the expression of PD-1 , a suppressor of activation of T-cells, via down regulation of its target gene, 28/February/2015, 8.29 am, Genome-2-Bio-Medicine Discovery center (GBMD), http://genomediscovery.org

Significance: This study suggests that Acarbose, by decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may suppress the expression of PD-1.  Thereby, it may activate the immune system and inhibit metastatic progression. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Acarbose or its analogues  may be used to inhibit the progression of tumors.

Amount: $ 500*
