Tea polyphenols inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 expression and block activation of nuclear factor-kappa B and Akt in diethylnitrosoamine induced lung tumors in Swiss mice
SummaryBackground Due to lack of validated screening methods and hence poor prognosis, treatment of lung cancer has not still improved up to the expectations. Therefore, risk of lung cancer needs toExpand

Tea polyphenols enhance cisplatin chemosensitivity in cervical cancer cells via induction of apoptosis.
AIM Constitutive activation of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB) and Akt has been implicated in chemoresistance as well as inhibition of apoptosis to cisplatin (CDDP), therefore, we examined whether (-)Expand

Tea polyphenols induce apoptosis through mitochondrial pathway and by inhibiting nuclear factor-kappaB and Akt activation in human cervical cancer cells.
Phytochemicals present in tea, particularly polyphenols, have anticancer properties against several cancer types. However, studies elucidating the role and the mechanism(s) of action of teaExpand

Bromelain inhibits nuclear factor kappa‐B translocation, driving human epidermoid carcinoma A431 and melanoma A375 cells through G2/M arrest to apoptosis
Bromelain, obtained from pineapple, is already in use clinically as adjunct in chemotherapy. Our objective was to test its ability to act as a sole anti‐cancer agent. Therefore, we describe itsExpand

Theaflavins induced apoptosis of LNCaP cells is mediated through induction of p53, down-regulation of NF-kappa B and mitogen-activated protein kinases pathways.
Prostate cancer (PCA), the most frequently diagnosed malignancy in men, represents an excellent candidate disease for chemoprevention studies because of its particularly long latency period, highExpand
