Natural product-derived  therapy for enhancing anti-cancer immunity: Dihydroartemisinin (DHA), a derivative of Artemisinin isolated from Artemesia anuua L, decreases the level of LATS1/2 (large tumor suppressor 1 and 2), increases immunogenicity of tumors, enhances anti-tumor immune responses, and inhibits tumor growth via down regulation of its target gene, 30/August/2017, 1.26 am

Introduction: What they say:  A study from the Department of Pharmacology and Moores Cancer Center, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA shows that […]

Molecular therapy for Metastatic cancers: Ivermectin, the anthelmintic drug, increases the expression of tumor suppressors RECK1 and CADM1, inhibits cell cycle progression, and suppresses migration, invasion and metastasis of cancer cells via up regulation of its target gene, 30/August/2017, 12.50 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: Epigallocatechin-3-O- gallate (EGCG) increases IL-9, 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 regulation of its target genes, 28/August/2017, 11.48 pm

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 […]

Molecular therapy for Metastatic cancers: Ivermectin, the anthelmintic drug, increases the expression of DNA repair protein hMSH2 and the tumor suppressor protein Fas ligand, inhibits cell cycle progression, and suppresses migration, invasion and metastasis of cancer cells via up regulation of its target gene, 28/August/2017, 11.03 pm

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 […]
