Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), a disease common in the South-East Asian population, has high lymph node metastatic ability. Melatonin, an endogenously produced substance present in animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria, has oncostatic activity via several mechanisms. The molecular mechanisms involved in melatonin-mediated tumor inhibitory potential are not(More)
BACKGROUND Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is known for its high incidence of neck lymph node metastasis, which represents poor prognosis. The present study aimed to examine the anti-metastatic properties of Selaginella tamariscina extract (STE) in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma HONE-1 cells in vitro. METHODS Cell viability was examined by MTT assay,(More)
Rheum palmatum L., a traditional Chinese medication, has been used for the treatment of various disorders. However, the detailed impacts and underlying mechanisms of R. palmatum L. extracts (RLEs) on human oral cancer cell metastasis are still unclear. Here, we tested the hypothesis that an RLE has antimetastatic effects on SCC-9 and SAS human oral cancer(More)
Hispolon has been reported to possess antioxidant, antiinflammatory, and antitumor activities. However, the effect of hispolon on the metastasis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) remains unclear. In this study, we investigated how the antimetastatic activity and relevant signaling pathways of hispolon affected three NPC cell lines. The results revealed that(More)
