Anti-thyroid cancer properties of a novel isoflavone derivative, 7-(O)-carboxymethyl daidzein conjugated to N-t-Boc-hexylenediamine in vitro and in vivo.


The incidence of thyroid cancer is up to 3 folds higher in women than in men, suggesting that estrogenic effects may be involved in the pathogenesis of this malignancy. Here, we explore whether or not human thyroid cancer cell growth can be curbed by a novel isoflavone derivative generated in our laboratory, the N-t-Boc-hexylenediamine derivative of 7-(O… (More)
