Natural product-derived Anti-AXL therapeutics for enhancing the efficacy of chemotherapies: Combination of Hyperoside and Epigallocatechin-3- gallate, found in Drosera rotundifolia and Green tea, respectively, 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, 23/June/2017, 9.49 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 […]
