Natural product-derived therapy for metastasis: Artemisinin, one of the components of Artemisia Annua, inhibits the expression of IL-6/8, decreases the expression of down stream molecules WASF3 and Arp2/3, suppresses tumor cell migration, reduces metastasis and prolongs survival via up regulation of its target gene, 26/June/2017, 11.25 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland 21218, USA; Johns Hopkins Physical Sciences-Oncology Center, […]

Natural product-derived Combination therapy for Squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck (HNSCC): A therapeutic mix encompassing an anticancer drug, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D and Artemisinin may decrease BMI1 and AP-1 expression, overcome chemotherapeutic resistance, promote chemosensitivity, suppress cancer stem cells in HNSCC, and inhibit lymph node metastasis via down regulation of its target genes, 26/June/2017, 10.56 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Laboratory of Molecular Signaling, Division of Oral Biology and Medicine, Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and Broad Stem Cell Research […]

Natural product-derived therapy for Metastatic cancers: Diosmetin, isolated from citrus limon, decreases the expression of metastasis promoters ZBTB2 and PPM1F, inhibits cell cycle progression, and suppresses migration, invasion and metastasis of cancer cells via up regulation of its target gene, 23/June/2017, 11.37 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 […]
