Colorectal cancer (CRC) is now perceived as a multistep process characterized by the accumulation of genetic alterations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Plant-derived compounds are receiving considerable attention for their potential role in reducing cancer risk. Luteolin, a bioflavonoid present in many fruits and vegetables, possesses antioxidant,(More)
Colon cancer (CRC) is a serious health problem through worldwide. Development of novel drug without side effect for this cancer was crucial. Luteolin (LUT), a bioflavonoid has many beneficial effects such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative properties. Azoxymethane (AOM), a derivative of 1, 2-Dimethyl hydrazine (DMH) was used for the(More)
Luteolin (LUT), a bioflavonoid has been used as a chemopreventive agent world-wide against chemically induced cancer. Hence we designed an experiment to assess chemopreventive action of LUT on lipid peroxidation (LPO) and glycoconjugates in azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon carcinogenesis. Colon cancer was induced by 15 mg/body kg. body weight of AOM and(More)
Cancer is a multistep process that typically occurrs over an extended period of time, beginning with initiation followed by promotion and progression. Colon cancer is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. For a variety of reasons, patients prefer naturally occurring dietary substances over synthetic agents to prevent cancer. Luteolin, a(More)
A foremost challenge for the neurons, which are among the most oxygenated cells, is the genome damage caused by chronic exposure to endogenous reactive oxygen species (ROS), formed as cellular respiratory byproducts. Strong metabolic activity associated with high transcriptional levels in these long lived post-mitotic cells render them vulnerable to(More)
Colon cancer (CRC) is a serious health problem throughout the world. Development of novel drugs without side effects for this cancer is crucial. Luteolin (LUT), a bioflavonoid, has many beneficial effects such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative potential. was a potent chemical carcinogen used for the induction of colon cancer. Colon(More)
Colon cancer (CRC) is a serious health problem causes increased mortality every year in worldwide. Highest intake of alcohol, smoking, high fat diets are considered as an etiological factor for the development of CRC. It has three distinct stages including initiation, promotion and progression stages. Multiple signaling alterations were undergoing each(More)
