Introduction: What they say
Noble laureate in Physiology/Medicine (1975) Prof. David Baltimore, from California Institute of Technology, California, USA, had reported in the July 8, 2014 issue of the Journal “Blood” that: “Dual mechanisms by which MiR-125b represses IRF4 to induce myeloid/B-cell leukemias.”
What we say:
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-derived therapy for Human Leukemias: Shikonin, found in Zicao (also known as purple gromwell), suppresses B-Cell and myeloid leukemias via up regulation of the tumor suppressor IRF4
From Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:
This study suggests that Shikonin, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of a number of tumor suppressor genes, including IRF4. Thereby, it could inhibit the progression of B-Cell and myeloid leukemias (figs. 1 -3).
Taken together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing “Shikonin or its analogues or Shikonin in combination with other anticancer drugs“ may be used to inhibit B-Cell and myeloid leukemias.
