Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
There continues to be confusion regarding acceptable methods to measure autophagy, especially in multicellular eukaryotes, so it is important to update guidelines for monitoring autophagic activity in different organisms. Expand
Green tea constituent epigallocatechin-3-gallate and induction of apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in human carcinoma cells.
Green tea may protect against cancer by causing cell cycle arrest and inducing apoptosis, and needs to be evaluated in human trials. Expand
Multitargeted therapy of cancer by silymarin.
The protective effects of silymarin and its major active constituent, silibinin, studied in various tissues, suggest a clinical application in cancer patients as an adjunct to established therapies, to prevent or reduce chemotherapy as well as radiotherapy-induced toxicity. Expand
Exosomes secreted under hypoxia enhance invasiveness and stemness of prostate cancer cells by targeting adherens junction molecules
The findings suggest that ExoHypoxic are loaded with unique proteins that could enhance invasiveness, stemness, and induce microenvironment changes; thereby, promoting PCA aggressiveness. Expand
Anticancer and cancer chemopreventive potential of grape seed extract and other grape-based products.
Overall, completed studies from various scientific groups conclude that both grapes and grape-based products are excellent sources of various anticancer agents and their regular consumption should thus be beneficial to the general population. Expand
Natural products and colon cancer: current status and future prospects
Recent studies on natural products in colon cancer chemoprevention with respect to multiple molecular mechanisms in various in vitro, in vivo, and clinical studies are described in this overview. Expand
Tissue distribution of silibinin, the major active constituent of silymarin, in mice and its association with enhancement of phase II enzymes: implications in cancer chemoprevention.
The results of the present study clearly demonstrate the bioavailability of and phase II enzyme induction by systemically administered silibinin in different tissues, including skin, where silymarin has been shown to be a strong cancer chemopreventive agent, and suggest further studies to assess the cancer preventive and anticarcinogenic effects of silibine in different cancer models.

Results suggest that silibinin could be a useful agent for the intervention of hormone-refractory human prostate cancer. Expand
Silibinin upregulates the expression of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors and causes cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in human colon carcinoma HT-29 cells
The results identify molecular mechanisms of silibinin efficacy as a cell cycle regulator and apoptosis inducer in human colon carcinoma HT-29 cells, and justify further studies to investigate potential usefulness of this nontoxic agent in colon cancer prevention and intervention. Expand
Inositol hexaphosphate inhibits growth, and induces G1 arrest and apoptotic death of prostate carcinoma DU145 cells: modulation of CDKI-CDK-cyclin and pRb-related protein-E2F complexes.
Molecular alterations in IP6 provide an insight into IP6-caused growth inhibition, G1 arrest and apoptotic death of human prostate carcinoma DU145 cells. Expand
