Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide and there is epidemiological evidence that demonstrates this tendency is emerging. Naringenin (NGEN) is a trihydroxyflavanone that shows various biological effects such as antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral activities. It belongs to flavanone class, which represents flavonoids with(More)
This study describes an optimization of [6]-, [8]- and [10]-gingerol isolation and purification in semi-preparative HPLC scale and their anti-proliferative activity. The gingerols purification was carried out in HPLC system using a Luna-C₁₈ and the best mobile phase evaluated was MeOH/H₂O (75:25, v/v). This new methodology for the gingerols isolation was(More)
(1)H high-resolution magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H HR-MAS NMR) spectroscopy was used to analyze the metabolic profile of an intact non-tumor breast cell line (MCF-10A) and intact breast tumor cell lines (MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231). In the spectra of MCF-10A cells, six metabolites were assigned, with glucose and ethanol in higher(More)
For many years, ginger or ginger root, the rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, has been consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. Several studies have been conducted on the medicinal properties of ginger against various disorders, including cancer. Cancer is the second leading cause of death, and chemoprevention is defined as the use of natural or(More)
Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs) are characteristically capable of being antagonist and agonist of estrogen receptors and, therefore, they can inhibit or stimulate estrogen production in different tissues. Aiming to contribute to the identification of new synthetic SERMs candidates, the basic skeletons of raloxifene and tamoxifene were used as(More)
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a highly aggressive breast cancer subtype. The high rate of metastasis associated to the fact that these cells frequently display multidrug resistance, make the treatment of metastatic disease difficult. Development of antitumor metal-based drugs was started with the discovery of cisplatin, however, the severe side(More)
Cancer is the second leading cause of death, preceded only by cardiovascular diseases, and there is epidemiological evidence that demonstrate this tendency is emerging worldwide. Brazil has an extensive vegetal biodiversity with more than 55,000 species listed. Such biodiversity collaborates with the finding of compounds which could be the basis for the(More)
