Probiotic-based anti-cancer therapy for glioblastoma: Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus inhibits the expression of JMJD6, impairs functioning of transcription elongation machinery, inhibits the proliferation of glioblastoma cells, suppresses tumor cell migration, reduces metastasis and prolongs survival via down regulation of its target gene, 1/November/2018, 11.53 pm

Introduction: What they say:  A study from the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Lerner Research Institute, Ohio, USA shows that “Transcription elongation factors […]

Probiotic-based therapy for cancer: Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus inhibits the expression of mTORC1 and its downstream target AMD1, dismantles mTORC1-AMD1 signaling network, decreases polyamine levels, and inhibits prostate cancer progression via upregulation of its target gene, 1/November/2018, 11.39 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from CIC bioGUNE (Center for Cooperative Research in Biosciences), Bizkaia Technology Park, 801 Building, 48160 Derio, Spain shows that “mTORC1-dependent AMD1 regulation sustains polyamine […]

Probiotic-based therapy targeting cancer stem cells in Myeloid leukaemia (ML): Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus 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, 11/November/2018, 11.13 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 […]

Act(os) against cancer: Pioglitazone (trade name: Actos), an anti-diabetic drug, increases the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as KIBRA, GAS5, p53,  p53, TAp63, TAp73, INK4a/ARF, and others, induces regression of p53-mutated human tumors, via down-regulation of its target gene,1/November/2018, 4.40 pm

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 […]
