Natural product-derived therapy for prostate cancer bone metastasis: Artemisinin, isolated from Artemisia Annua, 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, 27/June/2017, 11.24 pm

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 […]
