Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) Inhibits Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 (BMP-2) Elevated Osteoblast Potential of Metastatic Breast Cancer (MDA-MB-231) Cells in Mammary Microcalcification.
Abstract Microcalcification seems to be an assurance signature for the prediction of breast cancer malignancy. However, neither systematic study for deciphering the molecular mechanism of mammary microcalcification has yet been conducted, nor a mechanistic study has been performed to find out its prevention. Thus, this study firstly aimed at determining if malignant breast tissues/metastatic breast cancer cells exhibit elevated intrinsic osteoblast-like potential responsible for driving the pathological microcalcification in breast tumors. Here, tumor sample analysis showed higher levels of various osteogenic gene...

Customized Prevention Trials Could Resolve the Controversy of the Effects of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Cancer.
Abstract Literature data revealed that the benefits of consuming omega-3 fatty acid (n-3FA) supplements such as fish oil with the goal of reducing the incidence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer remain controversial. The purpose of this commentary is to discuss factors that may account for the inconsistency of results across different studies. Critical review of the published data, including our own preclinical and clinical studies, strongly suggests that customized clinical prevention trials are needed to resolve the above-mentioned controversy. Specifically, in order to develop a pers...

Onion and Garlic Intake and Breast Cancer, a Case-Control Study in Puerto Rico.
Mu L Abstract Studies show an inverse association between onion and garlic intake and risk of cancers of the lung, prostate, and stomach. There is limited evidence on the association between onion and garlic intake and breast cancer. We assessed this association in a population-based, case-control study in Puerto Rico. Incident, primary breast cancer cases (n = 314) were identified among women aged 30-79 from hospital and clinic records. Controls (n = 346) were women with no history of cancer other than nonmelanoma skin cancer, residents of the same area. Dietary intake was estimated u...

Effects of Black Raspberries and Their Constituents on Rat Prostate Carcinogenesis and Human Prostate Cancer Cell Growth In Vitro.
Abstract Prostate cancer patients often use dietary supplements, such as black raspberries, which are a rich source of compounds with antioxidant and anticancer activity, particularly on gastrointestinal cancers. Feeding black raspberries inhibited mammary cancer induction in rats and growth of cancer cells in nude mice, indicating systemic bioavailability of bioactive compounds. We tested whether feeding black raspberries and its constituents would inhibit prostate cancer development. However, we did not find preventive effects in two rat prostate carcinogenesis models, even though the berry anthocyanin metabolit...

Anticancer Characteristics of Fomitopsis pinicola Extract in a Xenograft Mouse Model-a Preliminary Study.
Conclusions: The extract was poorly absorbed; this is likely due to the timing of treatment, dosage levels and modifications made to the extract where the alcohol-based solvent was replaced with water. This, in combination with fractionation studies which identified most anti-cancer compounds to be hydrophobic, largely explained the lack of anti-cancer activities in vivo.

Silencing of TMEM158 Inhibits Tumorigenesis and Multidrug Resistance in Colorectal Cancer.
In this study, we found that TMEM158 was highly expressed in CRC tissues and cell lines compared with the corresponding noncancerous samples and normal colon epithelial cells. In vitro studies showed that TMEM158 silencing inhibited proliferation, and migration and increased apoptosis of CRC cells, whereas overexpression of TMEM158 increased proliferation, migration, and apoptosis escape of CRC cells. Mechanically, the levels of drug resistance-associated molecules, including multidrug resistance 1 and multidrug resistance protein 1, as well as the expression of antiapoptotic Bcl-2 were significantly upregulated. In additi...

The NCI-N87 Cell Line as a Gastric Epithelial Model to Study Cellular Uptake, Trans-Epithelial Transport, and Gastric Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Anthocyanins.
The objective of this work was to investigate the uptake, trans-epithelial transport, and anti-inflammatory activity of anthocyanins by the NCI-N87 cell line. The cells formed a coherent monolayer, stable ≤32 days post confluency. Minimal effects on monolayer integrity were observed when the pH of the apical chamber was adjusted to pH 3.0, 5.0, or 7.4. Anthocyanins were transported across the NCI-N87 cell monolayer at 37 °C, but not at 0 °C, suggesting a facilitated process. Chokeberry anthocyanins (0-1500 μM) were not cytotoxic. At apical pH 3.0, they had anti-inflammatory propert...

A Ketogenic Diet Is Acceptable in Women with Ovarian and Endometrial Cancer and Has No Adverse Effects on Blood Lipids: a Randomized, Controlled Trial.
Abstract Ketogenic diets (KDs) are emerging as effective therapies for several chronic diseases, including cancer. However, concerns regarding safety and adherence may prevent clinicians from prescribing KDs. We hypothesized that a KD does not negatively affect blood lipid profile compared to a lower-fat diet in ovarian and endometrial cancer patients, and that KD subjects would demonstrate acceptable adherence. Subjects were randomized to either a KD (70% fat, 25% protein, 5% carbohydrate), or the American Cancer Society diet (ACS; high-fiber and lower-fat). Blood lipids and ketones were measured at baseline and ...

Metabolic Alterations Induced by Kudingcha Lead to Cancer Cell Apoptosis and Metastasis Inhibition.
In this study, we found that aqueous extract of Kudingcha dose dependently inhibited cell growth and induced apoptosis in vitro and in vivo. Moreover, Kudingcha supplementation significantly reduced cancer metastasis. Kudingcha significantly inhibited glycolysis and glutamine metabolism. In addition, we demonstrated that the antitumor effects of Kudingcha were dependent on ROS production, which was increased by β-oxidation and oxidative phosphorylation. These findings provide a novel potential benefit of Kudingcha from targeting the cancer metabolism. PMID: 31352802 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Nutrition and Cancer)

Ampelopsin Induces DR5-Mediated Apoptotic Cell Death in EBV-Infected Cells through the p38 Pathway.
In this study, we investigated the anticancer activity of AMP against Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-positive cells and its mechanism of action. Our results showed that AMP dose-dependently inhibited cell viability and induced apoptotic cell death in EBV-positive cells without cytotoxicity in EBV-negative cells. In particular, AMP induced caspase-8 dependent apoptosis via upregulation of tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and death receptor (DR5). Knockdown of DR5 by RNA interference blocked AMP-induced apoptosis. Furthermore, AMP dose-dependently activated p38 mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK...
