From Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:
The study presented here suggests that Calycosin, 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 “Calycosin 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).
