Natural product-based therapy for Metastatic tumors: Formononetin, an isoflavone found in the roots of astragalus membranaceus, Trifolium pratense, Glycyrrhiza glabra, and Pueraria lobata, increases the expression of metastasis suppressor gene TPM1 and inhibits invasion, migration and metastasis of tumor cells via down regulation of its target gene, 1/February/2017, 5. 41 pm

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:  Given that: (1) Cancer suppressor p53 is mutated in more than 50% of human cancers of different […]
