Molecular therapy for Metastatic cancers: Myrtenal, isolated  from Taxus, increases the expression of metastasis suppressors TIMP3 and CCM3/KRTI1, inhibits cell cycle progression, and suppresses migration, invasion and metastasis of cancer cells via up regulation of its target gene, 24/August/2017, 12.24 am

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance: Given that: (i) each year nearly 14 million people are diagnosed with cancer globally, and little more […]

Natural product-derived therapy for inflammation and arthritis: β-Cryptoxanthin, isolated from Satsuma Mandarin, Buah Merah, Papaya and Paparika among others, increases IL-9 levels, increases proliferation of ILC2s (type 2 innate lymphoid cells) and regulatory T (Treg) cells, promotes resolution of inflammation, attenuates cartilage destruction, decreases bone loss, and inhibits pathological features associated with arthritis via up regualtion of its target genes, 24/August/2017, 12.14 am

Introduction: What they say A study from Department of Internal Medicine 3-Rheumatology and Immunology, Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and Universitätsklinikum Erlangen, Erlangen, Germany shows that […]

Natural product-based combinatorial therapy for Lifespan extension: A therapeutic mix encompassing Mangiferin, Diindolylmethane (3,3′-DIM, DIM) and Vitamin-D dissolved in Hydrogen-rich water activates autophagy, promotes leanness, increases insulin sensitivity, improves motor function, alleviates ageing feature and extends lifespan via up regulation of its target gene ATG5 (Autophagy related 5), 22/August/2017, 11.48 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Global Research Laboratory, Seoul National University, Korea shows that “Overexpression of Atg5 in mice activates autophagy and extends lifespan.” This study was […]
