Protect your colon with food: Garlic and onions reduce risk of colorectal cancer

(Natural News) Garlic and onions are commonly used to flavor food – but they offer far more benefits than that. A recent study suggests that garlic, onions, and other Allium vegetables – leeks, chives, shallots – may prevent colorectal cancer. Bioactive compounds in Allium vegetables were previously reported to prevent breast cancer and prostate cancer....

Authors: Chen P, Wang H, Li M, Yang L, Mou F, Singh B, He JY, Zhang W Abstract 6,12-Diphenyl-3,9-diazatetraasterane-1, 5, 7, 11-tetracarboxylate (DDTC) has been synthesized by the photodimerization of 4-phenyl-1,4-dihydropyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate. The potential of theercvantitumor activity and mechanism were investigated in vitro using MTT assay in human lung cancer cell line A549, ovarian cancer cell lines SKOV3 and A2780, breast cancer cell line MCF-7, gastric cancer cell line BGC-823, colon cancer cell line HT29, prostate cancer cell line DU145, and liver cancer cell line SMMC7721. The results show that DDTC ca...

DB Nandini, Roopa S Rao, BS Deepak, Praveen B ReddyJournal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology 2020 24(2):405-405 Isothicyanates present in cruciferous vegetables are known to exhibit chemoprevention by various mechanisms. Presently, there is growing evidence that a phytochemical compound known as sulforaphane in these green leafy vegetables is found to be effective in preventing and treating various cancers such as prostate cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, skin, urinary bladder and oral cancers. This component is naturally present in the broccoli sprouts, kale, cabbage, cauliflower and garden cress and is available a...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To characterize the contemporary efficacy and utilization patterns of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in specific cancer types. METHODS: We leveraged the data from the National Inpatient Sample and plotted trends of utilization and outcomes of isolated CABG (with no other additional surgeries during the same hospitalization) procedures from January 1, 2003, through September 1, 2015. Propensity score matching was used to assess for potential differences in outcomes by type of cancer status among contemporary (2012-2015) patients. RESULTS: Overall, the utilization of CABG decrea...

CD276 (also called B7-H3) is a pan-cancer antigen expressed in multiple solid tumors and an emerging cancer target. CD276 protein is overexpressed in pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, and brain tumors (such as neuroblastoma) – making it an ideal target for cancer therapy. Investigators at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have isolated a panel of anti-CD276 single domain antibodies (also known as nanobodies) from novel camel and rabbit single domain (VHH) libraries by phage display.  Nanobodies are the smallest known antigen-binding fragments of antibodies. Due ...

Abstract Increased frequency of cancer in recent years and its impact on different physical, mental, and social dimensions of human life have turned it to a major problem of this century. We can group cancer according to the type of cells they start from viz. skin cancer, colon cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer oral cancer etc. Among this, breast cancer is one of the most prevalent type of malignant neoplasm within women with more than one million new cases per year. In the recent years, with the help of targeted drug delivery system, several attempts were made to restrict the d...

In this study, we exploited the next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology along with 3' rapid amplification of cDNA ends (3' RACE) to discover alternative KLK15 splice variants. Extensive computational analysis of the obtained NGS data revealed the existence of novel splice junctions, thus supporting the existence of novel KLK15 transcripts. Six novel KLK15 splice variants were identified and verified by Sanger sequencing. Two of them (KLK15 v.11 and v.12) contain an open reading frame and are hence predicted to encode two novel KLK15 protein isoforms. Expression analysis of each KLK15 splice variant in sixteen cDNA pool...
