Network pharmacology of Ayurveda formulation Triphala with special reference to anti-cancer property.

Network pharmacology of Ayurveda formulation Triphala with special reference to anti-cancer property. Comb Chem High Throughput Screen. 2015 Oct 18; Authors: Chandran U, Mehendale N, Tillu G, Patwardhan B Abstract Network pharmacology is an emerging technique, which integrates systems biology and computational biology to study multi-component and multi-targeted formulations. Ayurveda, the traditional system of Indian medicine, uses intelligent formulations; however, their scientific rationale and mechanisms remain largely unexplored. This paper presents the potential of network pharmacology to understand the rationale of a commonly used Ayurveda formulation known as Triphala. We have developed pharmacology networks of Triphala based on the information gathered from different databases and using the software Cytoscape. The networks depict the interaction of bioactives with molecular targets and their relation with diseases, especially cancer. The network pharmacology analysis of Triphala has offered new relationships among bioactives, targets and putative applications of cancer etiology. This pioneering effort might open new possibilities to know pharmacodynamics of Ayurvedic drugs like Triphala and also help in the discovery of new leads and targets for various diseases.

ConclusionThe close relationship between HPV and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma could not be shown in larynx malignancy in many studies, including our study. Our findings support a limited role of HPV in laryngeal carcinogenesis. Protein16 is not a reliable surrogate for HPV status in laryngeal cancers and is not a predictor of laryngeal cancer survival. Supraglottic localization of tumor was determined to be increased in protein16 positive cases. The correlation between protein16 positivity and supraglottic area location was determined to be statistically significant. There is a need for more populated clinical tri...

In recent years, SHP2 has been the focus of significant attention in human diseases, particular in cancer. Several studies have shown that SHP2 plays an important role in regulating immune cell functions in tumor microenvironment. A few clinical trials conducted using SHP2 allosteric inhibitors have shown remarkable anti-tumor benefits an...

AmaravadiAbstractCancer cells encounter numerous stresses that pose a threat to their survival. Tumor microenviroment stresses that perturb protein homeostasis can produce endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, which can be counterbalanced by triggering the unfolded protein response (UPR) which is considered the canonical ER stress response. The UPR is characterized by three major proteins that lead to specific changes in transcriptional and translational programs ...

ConclusionSingle isocenter technique was not feasible as the telecobalt unit did not have multileaf collimators and asymmetric jaws. With improved image based planning, a multi-isocentric technique was planned. By evaluating the dose distribution, beam modifications can be made and treatments can be given with acceptable toxicity.
