Compound in Broccoli and Cauliflower Kills Leukemia Cells

Posted June 4, 2013

Nutrition scientists have been proclaiming the health benefits of the bioactive compound sulforaphane, found in crucifers such as cauliflower and broccoli, for the past ten years. Prior research studies have concluded that the chemical directly alters the expression of our genes to lower the risk from many different types of cancer. It appears that mainstream medical science has finally caught on as studies are showing that the extracted compound can effectively treat one of the most aggressive and invasive forms of leukemia that primarily afflicts children.

Grape seed proanthocyanidins inhibit the invasive potential of head and neck cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma cells by targeting EGFR expression and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition

Posted April 30, 2012

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is responsible for over 20,000 deaths every year in United States. Most of the deaths are due, in large part, to its propensity to metastasize. We have examined the effect of bioactive component grape seed proanthocyanidins (GSPs) on human cutaneous HNSCC cell invasion and the molecular mechanisms underlying these effects using SCC13 cell line as an in vitro model.

Fish Oil May Hold Key to Leukemia Cure

Posted April 30, 2012

A compound produced from fish oil that appears to target leukemia stem cells could lead to a cure for the disease, according to Penn State researchers. The compound — delta-12-protaglandin J3, or D12-PGJ3 — targeted and killed the stem cells of chronic myelogenous leukemia, or CML, in mice, said Sandeep Prabhu, associate professor of immunology and molecular toxicology in the Department of Veterinary and Medical Sciences. The compound is produced from EPA — Eicosapentaenoic Acid — an Omega-3 fatty acid found in fish and in fish oil, he said.

Anti-Neuroinflammatory Effects Of The Extract Of Achillea fragrantissima

Posted April 30, 2012

The neuroinflammatory process plays a central role in the initiation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and involves the activation of brain microglial cells. During the neuroinflammatory process, microglial cells release proinflammatory mediators such as cytokines, matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide (NO).

Coffee Lowers Risk Of Skin Cancer Basal Cell Carcinoma

Posted April 30, 2012

A prospective study found that the more coffee an adult drinks, the lower their risk seems to be for developing basal cell carcinoma, a common type of skin cancer. Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School presented their findings at the 10th AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, explaining that there is an inverse association between coffee consumption and basal cell carcinoma risk.
