A sweet way to treat Metastatic cancers: Xylobiose, a disaccharide of xylose, increases the expression of tumor/metastatic suppressors PIAS3 and RhoB, inhibits cell cycle progression, and suppresses migration, invasion and metastasis of cancer cells via up regulation of its target gene, 14/November/2018, 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 […]

Taming cancers with anti-tapeworm drugs: Niclosamide (brand name: Niclocide, Fenasal, Phenasal), an anti-tapeworm drug,  increases the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as SMAD7, p12(DOC1/CDK2AP1), p53, TAp63, TAp73, INK4a/ARF, and others, and induces regression of p53-mutated human cancers and other cancers, via up-regulation of its target gene, 14/October/2018, 12.12 am

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 […]

Cancer therapy targeting cancer stem cells in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and other metastatic cancers: Misoprostol, an FDA-approved EP4 agonist and abortion-promoting drug, increases the expression of tumor suppressor genes, such as HNF4α, CADM2, p53, and TA-p73/p63, targets CML leukemic stem cells, confers protection against CML and prolongs survival, via up-regulation of its target gene, 13/November/2018,11.20 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Carver College of Medicine, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA shows […]

Probiotic-based therapy for Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Lactobacillus rhamnosus decreases the expression of BCLAF1,  promotes differentiation of acute myeloid leukemic cells, restores treatment responsiveness, increases therapeutic index of anticancer drugs, and promotes regression of AML via up-regulation of its target gene, 12/August/2018, 10.40 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Institute of Genetics and Biophysics, CNR, Naples, Italy; and Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics and General Pathology, Second University […]
