Therapeutic insights into “awakening the sleeping/cancer-protecting angels” in mutant p53-expressing human tumors: Valsartan, a medication used in the treatment of high blood pressure and congestive heart failure, increases the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as TA-p73/p63, TPM1, TIMP3, CCM1/KRIT1 and others, induces regression of p53-mutated human tumors, via down regulation of its target gene, 14/April/2017, 6.40 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 […]

Natural product-derived therapy for Metastatic human tumors: Solasodine, isolated from solanum melongena, decreases the expression of c-Src protein, inhibits the expression of a number of enzymes in glycolytic cycle, and suppresses proliferation, migration, invasion, tumorigenesis and metastasis via up regulation of its target gene, 10/April/2018, 7.04 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the State Key Laboratory of Cellular Stress Biology, Innovation Center for Cell Signaling Network, School of Life Sciences, Xiamen […]

Natural product-based therapy for CyclinD3-CDK6 overexpressing cancers: Nimbolide, isolated from Azadirachta indica, 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, 10/April/2018, 6.41 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, […]

Combinatorial therapy for gynecologic cancers: A therapeutic mix encompassing  Calcitriol, Mitoxantrone, Despiramine, 17DMAG, Salinomycin, Lovastatin, and Jasmonate 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, 10/April/2018, 6.05 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 […]
