Anti ‑inflammatory effects of gambogic acid in murine collagen‑induced arthritis through PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.

Anti‑inflammatory effects of gambogic acid in murine collagen‑induced arthritis through PI3K/Akt signaling pathway. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Jan 08;: Authors: Wang QL, Yang DZ, Lv C Abstract Garcinia angustifolia is a dry resin secreted by Garcinia cambogia, which has the functions of breaking blood, detoxifying, stopping bleeding and killing insects. It is used for the treatment of cancer and brain edema. Gambogic acid is the primary active ingredient. The present study aimed to investigate the anti‑inflammatory and antiproliferative effects of gambogic acid on arthritis and the possible mechanisms. It was demonstrated that gambogic acid decreased arthritic scores in murine collagen‑induced arthritic mice. The tumor necrosis factor (TNF)‑α, interleukin (IL)‑1β, IL‑6 and IL‑18 concentrations, and caspase‑3 and caspase‑9 were significantly inhibited by gambogic acid in arthritic mice. Gambogic acid decreased matrix metalloproteinases (MMP)‑2, MMP‑9, nuclear factor (NF)‑κB and phosphorylated‑p38 protein expression, and increased tissue inhibitors of matrix metalloproteases‑1 (TIMP‑1) protein expression in arthritic mice. Furthermore, the phosphoinositide 3‑kinase (PI3K)/AKT serine/threonine kinase (Akt) signaling pathway was induced in arthritic mice treated with gambogic acid. The results suggested that gambogic acid induced anti‑inflammatory effects in murine collagen‑induced arthritis, through the PI3K...

Abstract Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)/c‐Met pathway dysregulation is a mechanism for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). Ficlatuzumab (AV‐299; SCH 900105), a humanized IgG1κ HGF inhibitory monoclonal antibody, prevents HGF/c‐Met pathway ligand–mediated activation. This phase 1b study assessed the safety/tolerability, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, and antitumor activity of ficlatuzumab plus gefitinib in Asian patients with previously treated advanced non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Patients received intravenous ficlatuzumab either 10 mg/kg (cohort 1; ...

This study is the first of its kind to provide patient-reported outcomes about fat grafting, and reflects a growing trend of incorporating patient-reported outcomes into clinical trials. Gaining a better understanding of outcomes from the patients’ perspective helps researchers and clinicians to design and deliver care that truly meets the personal preferences and treatment priorities of women diagnosed with breast cancer. I’d like to thank my colleague Dr. Dhruv Singhal, a plastic surgeon at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, for his contributions to this post.  The post Revisiting options for imp...

In conclusion, tibolone is associated with increased risk for ovarian and endometrial cancer overall; and particular the risk of serous ovarian tumors and Type 1 endometrial cancer. Because the associations are stronger with increasing durations of use ‐ and for hormone sensitive tumors ‐the results seem indicative of causality. This article is protected by copyright.

Conclusion A growing number of today’s children suffer from vaccine damage. Most individuals do not make the connection between health problems and vaccines. When asked about the cause of autoimmune disorders, asthma, allergies, diabetes, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism, and other common childhood diseases and illness, the majority of health care providers advise patients that the causes are unknown. Doctors, including most integrative physicians, fail to make the connection to vaccines. It takes one moment to permanently damage the health of an adult or child, but t...
