Combinatorial therapy for metastatic prostate cancer: A therapeutic mix encompassing Metformin and Navitoclax/ABT-263 (MAN) inhibits the expression of CDC42, CDC42EP3, RAC1 and ARPC5, and GAS6, suppresses the expression of stem cell molecules CD44 and EZH2, promotes epithelial phenotype, suppresses tumorigenesis, migration, invasion, stem cell regeneration and metastasis via upregulation of its target gene, 9/February/2018, 6.53 am

Combinatorial therapy for targeting cancer stem cells in Myeloid leukaemia (ML): a pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Metformin and Navitoclax/ABT-263  inhibits cytosolic aminotransferase BCAT1 expression, increases a-ketoglutarate levels, promotes degradation of HIF1a levels, increases DNA demethylase levels, promotes hypomethylation, increases the expression of tumor suppressor genes, inhibits leukaemia-initiating potential of AML cells, promotes differentiation of AML cells, and inhibits cancer progression in AML, via up-regulation of its target gene, 6/February/2019, 11.22 pm

Introduction to what they say: A study from the Heidelberg Institute for Stem Cell Technology and Experimental Medicine (HI-STEM gGmbH), 69120 Heidelberg, Germany; Division of Stem […]

Combinatorial therapy for brain tumor and oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma:  A therapeutic mix encompassing metformin and navitoclax/ABT263 (MAN) inhibits the expression of Integrin a7 (ITGA7), impairs laminin-induced/FAK-mediated signalling, inhibits the proliferation of glioblastoma and oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma stem cells, suppresses tumor cell migration, reduces metastasis and prolongs survival, via down-regulation of its target gene, 5/February/2019, 6.21 am

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Institute of General Pathology, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli, 00168 Rome, Italy; […]

Combinatorial therapy for gynecologic cancers: A therapeutic mix encompassing Metformin and Navitoclax (ABT-263) (MAN) inhibits the expression of HDAC6, acetylates tumor suppressor proteins, activates tumor suppressor function, and stifles the progression of ARID1A-mutated ovarian cancers, via up-regulation of its target gene, 3/February/2019, 11.22 pm

Introduction: What they say:  A study from Gene Expression and Regulation Program, The Wistar Institute, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104, USA shows that “ARID1A-mutated ovarian cancers depend on […]
