Despite advances in the early detection of tumors and in the use of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery for disease management, the worldwide mortality from human cancer remains unacceptably high. The treatment of cancer may benefit from the introduction of novel therapies derived from natural products. Natural products have served to provide a basis for many of the pharmaceutical agents in current use in cancer therapy. Emerging research indicates that progressive growth and spread of many… Expand
Effects of Photodynamic Therapy in Combination with Anti-Angiogenic Drugs on the Chicken Chorioallantoic Membrane Model
TLDR
The results suggest the therapeutic potential of the tyrosine kinase inhibitor for application in combination with PDT strategies, and the use of small molecule drugs could lead to more optimal application of anti-angiogenic compounds via droplets or slow-release drug delivery systems. Expand
The formulation for cancer prevention & therapy
TLDR
In conclusion, effective prevention and treatment for diseases such as cancer, heart disease and immune deficiency will require multiple compounds. Expand
Squalamine blocks tumor-associated angiogenesis and growth of human breast cancer cells with or without HER-2/neu overexpression.
TLDR
Squalamine effectively inhibits growth of breast cancers with or without HER-2-overexpression, an effect due in part to blockade of tumor-associated angiogenesis. Expand
Inhibition of Cell Proliferation and MAP Kinase and Akt Pathways in Oral Squamous cell Carcinoma by Genistein and Biochanin A
TLDR
The results clearly demonstrate a differential regulation of signaling pathways by various isoflavones in OSCC cell lines, and tumor progression models can be utilized to study the preventive and therapeutic roles of isofavones in oral cancer cell lines. Expand
Anticancer Activities of Brassinosteroids
TLDR
BRs are capable to inhibit growth of several human cancer cell lines and to inhibit angiogenesis-like behaviour of primary endothelial cells in vitro, as well, indicating a potential use of BRs in the prevention of metastasis development. Expand
Tumor Growth Inhibitory Effect of Juglone and Its Radiation Sensitizing Potential
TLDR
The study revealed the potential of juglone to augment the radiation-induced cell death of melanoma cells, which may be attributed to oxidative stress–mediated DNA damage and its delayed repair. Expand
Therapeutic Potential of Brassinosteroids in Biomedical and Clinical Research
TLDR
This review is an attempt to update the information about prospects of Brassinosteroids in biomedical and clinical application. Expand
Ridaifen-SB8, a novel tamoxifen derivative, induces apoptosis via reactive oxygen species-dependent signaling pathway.
TLDR
It is concluded that RID-SB8 exerts an anticancer effect via a mode of action distinct from tamoxifen, and that RIDs could become a promising anticancer lead compound which selectively induces ROS formation and apoptosis in cancer cells. Expand
Protective effect of genistein on radiation-induced intestinal injury in tumor bearing mice
TLDR
Genistein had a protective effect on intestinal damage induced by irradiation and delayed tumor growth, suggesting that genistein is a useful candidate for preventing radiotherapy-induced intestinal damage in cancer patients. Expand
Chapter 11 - Other Nonbiological Approaches to Targeted Cancer Chemotherapy
TLDR
Considering the importance of cullin-dependent ligases in the control of many proteins of oncogenic importance, some inhibitors of the NEDD 8 activating enzyme are discussed in the context of ubiquitin-like pathways. Expand

TLDR
The end product of this intense investigation will be new targeted therapies that offer the hope of improving the medical management of ovarian cancer while being significantly less toxic to normal cells. Expand
Combined effects of angiostatin and ionizing radiation in antitumour therapy
TLDR
The results show an antitumour interaction between ionizing radiation and angiostatin for four distinct tumour types, at doses of radiation that are used in radiotherapy. Expand
Squalamine and cisplatin block angiogenesis and growth of human ovarian cancer cells with or without HER-2 gene overexpression
TLDR
It is suggested that squalamine is anti-angiogenic for ovarian cancer xenografts and appears to enhance cytotoxic effects of cisplatin chemotherapy independent of HER-2 tumor status. Expand
Inhibition of angiogenesis.
TLDR
Early clinical experience with this first angiogenesis inhibitor to reach clinical trial, indicates that optimal antiangiogenic therapy in the future is likely to be based on the long-term use of inhibitors with low toxicity, and with little chance of inducing drug-resistance. Expand
Monoclonal antibody to HER-2/neureceptor modulates repair of radiation-induced DNA damage and enhances radiosensitivity of human breast cancer cells overexpressing this oncogene.
TLDR
Therapy with rhuMAb HER-2 enhances tumor sensitivity to radiation at doses of 1-5 Gy, exceeding remission rates obtained with radiation alone, and the activity of this critical mediator of the cellular response to DNA damage is assessed. Expand
Potential of the aminosterol, squalamine in combination therapy in the rat 13,762 mammary carcinoma and the murine Lewis lung carcinoma.
TLDR
The efficacy of squalamine alone and along with cytotoxic therapies against a model of primary and systemic disease was determined and it was found thatSqualamine administration alone substantially decreased the number of lung metastases found in animals bearing the Lewis lung carcinoma and further decreased theNumber of Lung metastases when administered along with the chemotherapeutic agents.

The prognostic significance of angiogenesis in epithelial ovarian carcinoma.
TLDR
The data suggest that the degree of neovascularization may have prognostic significance in epithelial ovarian carcinoma, especially for women with early-stage disease, and may allow the selection of women at high risk for recurrence who may benefit from aggressive adjuvant therapy. Expand
