Natural product-derived Anti-AXL therapeutics for enhancing the efficacy of chemotherapies: Combination of Solosodine and Matrine, found in solanum melongena and Sophora, respectively, decreases the expression of the AXL receptor and its activating ligand, GAS6, increases the expression of a number of tumor suppressor genes, increases therapeutic index of anticancer drugs, suppresses tumorigenesis, migration, invasion, and metastasis via up regulation of its target gene, 9/July/2017, 11.58 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Department of Radiation Oncology, Stanford University School of Medicine shows that “Inhibition of the GAS6/AXL pathway augments the efficacy of […]

Natural product therapy for CyclinD3-CDK6 overexpressing cancers: Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), isolated from Green tea, increases the levels of tumor suppressor proteins, inhibits the activity of glycolytic enzymes 6-phosphofructokinase and pyruvate kinase M2, decreases antioxidants NADPH and glutathione levels, increases reactive oxygen species levels, promotes apoptosis, and inhibits the progression of CyclinD3-CDK6 overexpressing cancers via down regulation of its target gene, 9/July/2017, 11.46 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from Department of Cancer Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, Massachusetts, USA; and Department of Genetics, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA shows […]

Anti-telomerase cancer therapy: Interleukin-23 (IL-23) suppresses the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1) and inhibits cancer progression via down-regulation of it target gene, 9/July/2017, 11.40 pm

Introduction: What they say:   The 1989 Nobel prize winner in Chemistry, Prof. Thomas R. Cech from the BioFrontiers Institute, USA has published a research paper in the 13 December 2012 issue of the Nature journal (492(7428):285-9; and I.F: >42) stating that “The TEL patch of telomere protein TPP1 […]

Electro-acupuncture therapy for muscle atrophy and wasting: Acupuncture plus Low-Frequency Electrical Stimulation increases the expression of FGF19 and its receptor ß-Klotho, phosphorylates ERK1/2 and S6K1, decreases the expression of tumor suppressors genes, promotes regeneration of muscle cells and hypertrophy of skeletal muscle, and reverses muscular atrophy and wasting via up regulation of its target gene, 9/July/2017, 1.18 am

Introduction: What they say A study from Department of Biology, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; and Univ-Lyon, CarMeN Laboratory, INSERM 1060, INRA 1397, Université Claude Bernard Lyon, INSA Lyon, Oullins, France […]
