Natural product-derived PD-1 pathway blockade for Human cancer therapy: Salvianolic acid A, one of the main components of Salvia Miltiorrhiza Bge, decreases the activity of Glycogen synthase kinase-3β, increases transcription factor T-bet expression, decreases the abundance of co-inhibitory receptor PD-1 on the cell surface of Cytotoxic-T-cells, increases cytotoxic T lymphocyte function and augments anti-tumor activity, via up-regulation of its target gene, 29/March/2017,4.53 am

Introduction:What they say:  A recent study from Cell Signalling Section, Division of Immunology, Department of Pathology, Tennis Court Road, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 1QP, UK […]

Natural product-derived therapy for prostate cancer bone metastasis: Linalool, found in coriander, sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), tomato, oils of rose, neroli, lavender, laurel and sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) among others, inhibits the expression of Monoamine oxidase A (MAOA), inhibits Shh-IL6-RANKL signaling network, suppresses tumor-stromal interactions, reduces prostate cancer metastasis and prolongs survival via up regulation of its target gene, 29/March/2017, 4.36 am

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Uro-Oncology Research Program, Department of Medicine, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA shows that “MAOA-Dependent Activation of […]
