Shogaols have been previously reported to induce cancer cell death via multiple mechanisms, among which one analog 6-shogaol has been reported to cause microtubule damage through specific reaction with sulfhydryl groups in tubulin. In this study, a series of shogaols with different side chain lengths (4-, 6-, 8- and 10-shogaol) was synthesized and evaluated(More)
Natural compounds containing vanilloid and Michael acceptor moieties appear to possess anti-cancer and chemopreventive properties. The ginger constituent shogaol represents one such compound. In this study, the anti-cancer potential of a synthetic novel shogaol analog 3-phenyl-3-shogaol (3-Ph-3-SG) was assessed by evaluating its effects on signaling(More)
AIMS Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) contribute to poorer patient outcomes and additional burden to the healthcare system. However, data on the true burden, relevant types and drugs causing ADRs are lacking. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of ADR-related hospitalization in the general adult population in Singapore and to investigate(More)
Malaria control and elimination are threatened by the emergence and spread of resistance to artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs). Experimental evidence suggests that when an artemisinin (ART)-sensitive (K13 wild-type) Plasmodium falciparum strain is exposed to ART derivatives such as dihydroartemisinin (DHA), a small population of the early(More)
