From Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity: 

The study presented here suggests that Bergapten (5-methoxypsoralen), by increasing the expression of its target genes, it may: (i) decrease the expression of Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPYD); (ii) increase 5-FU accumulation in cancer cells; (iii) augment and restore chemosensitivity in drug-resistant Human cancers; (iv) promote anti-tumor effect; and (v) enhance the efficacy of anticancer drug treatment.

Thereby, it may inhibit proliferation, chemoresistance and apoptosis of cancer cells. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Bergapten (5-methoxypsoralen) or its analogue either alone or in combination with  5-FU, or any other anticancer drugs” may be used to inhibit cancer progression (Figs. 1-3).
