Natural product-derived Anti-AXL therapeutics for enhancing the efficacy of chemotherapies: Ivermectin, the anti-parasitic drug, decreases the expression of the AXL receptor and its activating ligand, GAS6, increases the expression of a number of tumor suppressor genes, increases therapeutic index of anticancer drugs, suppresses tumorigenesis, migration, invasion, and metastasis via up regulation of its target gene, 11/August/2017, 11.41 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Department of Radiation Oncology, Stanford University School of Medicine shows that “Inhibition of the GAS6/AXL pathway augments the efficacy of […]

Natural product-derived therapy for therapy-resistant cancers: A therapeutic mix encompassing Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), β-Cryptoxanthine (BCX) and Berberine (BBR) inhibits the expression of phospholipid glutathione peroxidase (GPX4), inhibits GPX4 signaling network and lipid peroxidase pathway, suppresses EMT protein ZEB1, increases sensitivity to anticancer therapy and prolongs survival via up regulation of its target gene, 10/August/2017, 11.32 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from Broad Institute, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Chevy Chase, Maryland and Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, […]

 Natural product-derived therapy for prostate cancer: Myrtenal, one of the main components of Mint, Peppers and among others, inhibits the expression of mTORC1 and its downstream target AMD1, dismantles mTORC1-AMD1 signaling network, decreases polyamine levels, and inhibits prostate cancer progression via up regualtion of its target gene, 10/August/2017, 11.23 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 […]

Natural product-derived therapy for gynecologic cancers: Artemisinin, one of the main components  of herb Artemesia Annna L, 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, 9/August/2017, 11/54 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 […]
