Natural product-based PD-1 pathway blockade for Human cancer therapy: Dihydroartemisinin (DHA), a derivative of Artemisinin isolated from Artemisia Annua L, decreases the expression of Glycogen synthase kinase-3β, increases transcription factor T-bet expression, decreases the abundance of co-inhibitory receptor PD-1 on the cell surface of Cytotoxic-T-cells, increases cytotoxic T lymphocyte function and augments anti-tumor activity, via up-regulation of its target gene, 13 July, 2017, 10.05 pm

Introduction:What they say:  A recent study from Cell Signalling Section, Division of Immunology, Department of Pathology, Tennis Court Road, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 1QP, UK shows that “Glycogen Synthase […]

Natural product-derived therapy for prostate cancer bone metastasis: Methyl Jasmonate, isolated from Jasmine, inhibits the expression of Monoamine oxidase A (MAOA), inhibits Shh-IL6-RANKL signaling network, suppresses tumor-stromal interactions, reduces prostate cancer metastasis and prolongs survival via up regulation of its target gene, 11/July/2017, 7.24 am

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Uro-Oncology Research Program, Department of Medicine, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA shows that “MAOA-Dependent Activation of Shh-IL6-RANKL Signaling Network […]

Anti-telomerase cancer therapy: Berberine, one of the components of Berberis, Phellodendron amurense, and Guduchi among others, suppresses the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1) and inhibits cancer progression via down-regulation of it target gene, 11/July/2017, 6.27 am
