Arsenic Trioxide Promotes Paclitaxel Cytotoxicity in Resistant Breast Cancer Cells.
A partial response or resistance to chemotherapeutic agents is considered as a main obstacle in treatment of patients with cancer, including breast cancer. Refining taxane-based treatment procedures using adjuvant or ...
Combined Treatment with 2-Deoxy-D-Glucose and Doxorubicin Enhances the in Vitro Efficiency of Breast Cancer Radiotherapy.
Doxorubicin (DOX) was introduced as an effective chemotherapeutic for a wide range of cancers but with some severe side effects especially on myocardia. 2-Deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) enhances the damage caused by chemotherapeutics ...
Extracts of Scrophularia frigida Boiss display potent antitumor effects in human breast cancer cells by inducing apoptosis and inhibition of expression of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2.
Some species of the Scrophularia genus have been extensively used as a natural remedy for treatment of various medical conditions. The objective of this study was to evaluate the growth inhibitory activity of Scrophularia ...
Urtica dioica extract suppresses miR-21 and metastasis-related genes in breast cancer.
Breast cancer has a high prevalence among women worldwide. Tumor invasion and metastasis still remains an open issue that causes most of the therapeutic failures and remains the prime cause of patient mortality. Hence, ...
Restoration of miR-143 expression could inhibit migration and growth of MDA-MB-468 cells through down-regulating the expression of invasion-related factors.
Breast adenocarcinoma is the second common cancer in women the incidence of which is increasing in many countries, especially in developing companies. In this study, miRNA143 has been replaced by vector based microRNA-143 ...
High efficiency apoptosis induction in breast cancer cell lines by MLN4924/2DG co-treatment
2-deoxy-D-Glucose (2DG) causes cytotoxicity in cancer cells by disrupting thiol metabolism. It is an effective component in therapeutic strategies. It targets the metabolism of cancer cells with glycolysis inhibitory ...
