Molecular targeting therapeutics, such as EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), are important treatment strategies for lung cancer. Currently, the major challenge confronting targeted cancer therapies is the development of resistance. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) represent a rare population of undifferentiated tumorigenic cells responsible for tumor(More)
Three pentacyclic triterpene dilactones were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Ganoderma colossum, a medicinal mushroom. Colossolactone H (colo H) as a new compound and the most cytotoxic among the isolates was studied for its anticancer mechanism and the potential use in cancer therapy. Gene expression profiling analysis indicated that treatment of lung(More)
The stilbenoids, arachidin-1 (Ara-1), arachidin-3, isopentadienylresveratrol, and resveratrol, have been isolated from germinating peanut kernels and characterized as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents. Resveratrol possesses anticancer activity, and studies have indicated that it induces programmed cell death (PCD) in human leukemia HL-60 cells. In(More)
