There is mounting evidence that garlic extracts possess significant anticancer actions. However, no studies have been reported on the effects of aged black garlic extracts (ABGE) on gastric cancer in vitro or in vivo. To examine the potential action of ABGE against gastric cancer, the present study evaluated its effect on the inhibition of cell proliferation and induction of apoptosis in SGC-7901 human gastric cancer cells. Additionally, we performed an in vivo study by inoculating the murine… Expand
Aged garlic extract inhibits 1,2-dimethylhydrazine-induced colon tumor development by suppressing cell proliferation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that AGE delayed cell cycle progression by downregulating cyclin B1 and cdk1 expression via inactivation of NF-κB in the human colorectal cancer cells but did not induce apoptosis. Expand
Aged black garlic extract inhibits HT29 colon cancer cell growth via the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.
TLDR
ABGE inhibited the growth and induced apoptosis in HT29 cells through the inhibition of the PI3K/Akt pathway, suggesting that ABGE may be effective in the prevention and treatment of colon cancer in humans. Expand
Efficacy of black garlic extract on anti-tumor and anti-oxidant activity enhancement in rats
TLDR
This finding suggests that AGE has remarkable hepatoprotective and antioxidant effects in DEN-induced hepatocarcinogenic rats, and further studies are needed to demonstrate effective various doses of AGE in human. Expand
Induction of apoptosis by a hexane extract of aged black garlic in the human leukemic U937 cells
TLDR
It is suggested that HEABG reduces leukemic cell growth by inducing caspase-dependent apoptosis through both intrinsic and extrinsic pathways, implying its potential therapeutic value in the treatment of leukemia. Expand
Recent Research Progress on Garlic (大蒜 dà suàn) as a Potential Anticarcinogenic Agent Against Major Digestive Cancers
TLDR
Increased uptake of garlic in diet may prevent the incidence of digestive cancers, and the major anti-carcinogenic mechanisms are caspase dependent and/or independent induction of apoptosis, anti-proliferative,anti-metastasis,Anti-oxidant and immunomodulative properties. Expand

Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is one of the oldest plants cultivated for its dietary and medicinal values. This incredible plant is endowed with various pharmacological attributes, such asExpand
Hepatoprotective Effect of Aged Black Garlic Extract in Rodents
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ABG has hepatoprotective effects and it is suggested thatABG supplementation might be a good adjuvant therapy for the management of liver injury. Expand
Panax ginseng polysaccharide induces apoptosis by targeting Twist/AKR1C2/NF-1 pathway in human gastric cancer.
TLDR
Findings suggested that PGP2a could be developed as a novel antitumor agent acting on Twist related gene for human gastric cancer therapy. Expand
Extracts from Fermented Black Garlic Exhibit a Hepatoprotective Effect on Acute Hepatic Injury
TLDR
It was concluded that black garlic exhibited significant protective effects on CCl4-induced acute hepatic injury and showed a hepatoprotective effect on the interleukin-1 level in liver. Expand
Apoptotic Activities of Mediterranean Plant Species
TLDR
Saffron exerts a chemopreventive effect by inhibiting cell proliferation and inducing apoptosis, and garlic inhibits cancer cell growth by promoting early mitotic arrest and apoptotic cell death without affecting healthy cells. Expand

Apoptotic effect of citrus fruit extract nobiletin on lung cancer cell line A549 in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
Results suggest that Nobiletin could induce p53-mediated cell cycle arrest and apoptosis via modulated the Bax:Bcl-2 protein ratio, is effective as a potent antitumor agent on lung tumors. Expand
Enhanced immunocompetence by garlic: role in bladder cancer and other malignancies.
TLDR
Data suggest that maintenance of immune stimulation can significantly reduce the risk of cancer and clinical trials should be initiated to test the hypothesis that the immune stimulation and other beneficial effects of garlic are able to reduce the incidence of cancer. Expand
Immunomodulatory effects of aged garlic extract.
TLDR
It is suggested that AGE could be a promising candidate as an immune modifier, which maintains the homeostasis of immune functions; further studies are warranted to determine when it is most beneficial. Expand
Molecular targets of cancer chemoprevention by garlic-derived organosulfides
TLDR
Current knowledge on molecular targets of cancer chemoprevention by OSC is summarized to induce apoptosis via the intrinsic pathway by altering the ratio of the Bcl-2 family of proteins both in cell culture and in in vivo models. Expand
Effect of Tinospora cordifolia on the cytokine profile of angiogenesis-induced animals.
TLDR
The observed antiangiogenic activity of the plant T. cordifolia is related, at least in part, to the regulation of the levels of these cytokines and growth factors in the blood of the angiogenesis-induced animal. Expand

TLDR
Since garlic and its constituents can suppress carcinogen formation, carcinogen bioactivation, and tumor proliferation it is imperative that biomarkers be established to identify which individuals might benefit most and what intakes can occur with ill consequences. Expand
Garlic [Allium sativum]: a review of its potential use as an anti-cancer agent.
TLDR
Garlic is a remarkable plant, which has multiple beneficial effects such as antimicrobial, antithrombotic, hypolipidemic, antiarthritic, hypoglycemic and antitumor activity, and the largely preclinical use of this agent in the treatment and prevention of cancer is discussed. Expand
Suppression of survivin expression inhibits in vivo tumorigenicity and angiogenesis in gastric cancer.
TLDR
It is shown that suppression of survivin expression or function by antisense and dominant-negative (DN) mutant can inhibit gastric cancer carcinogenesis and angiogenesis in vivo and strongly suggests that survivin is a promising target for Gastric cancer treatment. Expand
Nutrient and antioxidant modulation of apoptosis in gastric and colon cancer cells
TLDR
It is speculated that the therapeutic inhibition of the OPP and/or the GSH defense system may increase the sensitivity of gastric and colon cancer cells to anti-cancer therapy and it is hypothesize that the short-chain fatty acid, butyrate, will induce apoptosis in gastric cancer cells. Expand
