The purpose of this study is to investigate in vitro and ex vivo effects of matrine on the growth of human lung cancer and hepatoma cells and the cancer cell migration as well as the expressions of related proteins in the cancer cells. Matrine significantly inhibited the in vitro and ex vivo growth of human non-small cell lung cancer A549 and hepatoma(More)
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths among females worldwide. Berbamine (BER), a kind of bis-benzylisoquinoline alkaloid, has been used to treat clinical patients with inflammation and cancer for many years in China. The purpose of this study is to investigate the activity of BER against highly-metastatic human breast cancer(More)
Bufalin, a naturally occurring small-molecule compound from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Chansu showed inhibitory effects against human prostate, hepatocellular, endometrial and ovarian cancer cells, and leukemia cells. However, whether or not bufalin has inhibitory activity against the proliferation of human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of theanine, a tea characteristic amino acid, on human lung cancer and leukemia cells. In the present study, we have demonstrated that theanine suppressed the in vitro and ex vivo growth of human non-small cell lung cancer A549 and leukemia K562 cell lines in dose- and time-dependant manners. In addition,(More)
The effects of norcantharidin (NCTD), an anticancer drug in China, on the growth and migration in human lung cancer cells were investigated by in vitro and ex vivo assays. NCTD significantly inhibited the in vitro and ex vivo growth of human non-small cell lung cancer A549 cells in dose- and time-dependent manners. Western blot analysis indicated that NCTD(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of Lang-du extract (LDE) from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Euphorbia fischeriana Steud on the in vitro and in vivo growth of melanoma cells and its molecular mechanisms of action. Our present results have shown that LDE significantly suppressed the in vitro melanoma cell growth in dose- and(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of berbamine (BER), a naturally occurring small-molecule compound from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Berberis amurensis, on the growth and migration of human lung cancer A549 cell line. This cell line is the non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) which constitutes 80% of lung cancer cases and remains(More)
