Breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs), characterized by the CD44(+)/CD24(-/low) marker, are attributed with features that are demonstrated by the disease itself, such as growth of tumor, recurrence, metastases, and multiple drug resistance. This review concerns the emergence and expediency of BCSCs in treating relapse and advanced cases of breast cancer. One of(More)
Identification of breast cancer not being a single disease but backed by multiple heterogeneous oncogenic subpopulations is of growing interest in developing personalized therapies to provide optimal outcomes. Through this review, we bring attention to evolution of tumor and microenvironment heterogeneity as a predominant challenge in stratifying therapies.(More)
The effect of trifluoperazine (TFP), a phenothiazine derivative antipsychotic drug, on ionizing radiation (IR) induced cell killing through inhibition of DNA repair was investigated in human cell lines. In clonogenic survival assay, TFP augmented IR induced cell killing. Also, TFP enhanced micronucleus formation in irradiated human lymphocytes. The effect(More)
OBJECTIVE Research in Eastern India especially among children and adolescents for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) have not been well documented until recently when it was conducted at a cancer institute of tertiary care with primary objectives of examining and correlating different cell surface markers involved with respect to disease surveillance(More)
BACKGROUND Philadelphia chromosome, a hallmark of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), plays a key role in disease pathogenesis. It reflects a balanced reciprocal translocation between long arms of chromosomes 9 and 22 involving BCR and ABL1 genes, respectively. An accurate and reliable detection of BCR-ABL fusion gene is necessary for the diagnosis and(More)
Methylphophorbide a (MPa) has been isolated from the ethanol extract of the wheat grass plant. Its antioxidative efficacy is evaluated by hydroxyl radical scavenging activities and reducing capacity which are significantly up regulated in comparison with aqueous extract of the plant. The compound shows iron-binding capacity where the Fe(2+) binds with MPa(More)
