Lichens exerts an anti-proliferative effect on human breast and lung cancer cells through induction of apoptosis
(Taylor and Francis Ltd, 2021)
Successful cancer treatment still requires new complexes or compounds from natural sources. Therefore, we investigated anti-growth/apoptotic effects of methanol extracts of the lichen species (Xanthoparmelia somloensis ...
Etoposide loaded SPION-PNIPAM nanoparticles improve the in vitro therapeutic outcome on metastatic prostate cancer cells via enhanced apoptosis
Prostate cancer is among the leading causes of death worldwide because its metastatic form is a deadly disease. Therefore, the development of new chemotherapeutics is of immense importance. Nanoparticle technology seems ...
Development of near-infrared region luminescent N-acetyl-L-cysteine-coated Ag2S quantum dots with differential therapeutic effect
(Future Medicine Ltd, 2019)
Aim: N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) is a free radical scavenger. We developed NAC-coated Ag2S (NAC-Ag2S) quantum dot (QD) as an optical imaging and therapeutic agent. Materials & methods: QDs were synthesized in water. Their ...
Effective and new potent drug combination: histone deacetylase and Wnt/beta-catenin pathway inhibitors in lung carcinoma cells
Lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide with a high mortality rate. In this study, the therapeutic effect of combination valproic acid and niclosamide was investigated on human lung cancer cell line. ...
Valproic acid, a histone deacetylase inhibitor, induces apoptosis in breast cancer stem cells
(Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2018)
Cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) are a cell subpopulation that can reinitiate tumors, resist chemotherapy, give rise to metastases and lead to disease relapse because of an acquired resistance to apoptosis. Especially, ...
Palladium (II) complex enhances ROS-dependent apoptotic effects via autophagy inhibition and disruption of multiple signaling pathways in colorectal cancer cells
Background: Inhibition of autophagy is reported to be a therapeutically effective strategy in overcoming the resistance that is a deadly outcome in cancer. One of the most common reasons for chemo-resistance to treatment ...
