Natural product-derived therapy for Human Leukemias: Linalool, one of the main components of Coriander and Lamiaceae among others, suppresses B-Cell and myeloid leukemias via up regulation of the tumor suppressor IRF4, 17/February/2017, 11.12 pm

Introduction: What they say

Noble laureate in Physiology/Medicine (1975) Prof. David Baltimore, from California Institute of Technology, California, USA, had
reported in the July 8, 2014 issue of the Journal “Blood” that: “Dual mechanisms by which MiR-125b represses IRF4 to induce myeloid/B-cell leukemias.” 


What we say:

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-derived therapy for Human Leukemias: Linalool, one of the main components of Coriander and Lamiaceae among others,  suppresses B-Cell and myeloid leukemias via up regulation of the tumor suppressor IRF4


From Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:

This study suggests that Linalool, by increasing the expression of  its target gene, it may increase the expression of a number of tumor suppressor genes, including IRF4. Thereby, it could inhibit the progression of B-Cell and myeloid leukemias (fig. 1).

Taken together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing       Linalool or its analogues or Linalool in combination with other anticancer drugs may be used to inhibit B-Cell and myeloid leukemias.
