Chinese practitioners have employed the use of traditional Chinese medicine as an anti-cancer agent since the ancient period. Different combinations have been formulated for various purposes. Some have been claimed for post-chemotherapy use but their direct actions on cancer cells may not be significantly reported. In the present study, we have tested the possible anti-leukemia potential of a combination regimen including crocodile egg extract, wild radix ginseng and natural Ganoderma lucidum… Expand
Korean red ginseng extract induces apoptosis and decreases telomerase activity in human leukemia cells.
TLDR
The results of this study provide important new insights into the possible molecular mechanisms of the anticancer activity of KRG extract. Expand
Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides in human monocytic leukemia cells: from gene expression to network construction
TLDR
The results showed that F3 may induce death receptor ligands to initiate signaling via receptor oligomerization, recruitment of specialized adaptor proteins and activation of caspase cascades in THP-1 cells after F3 treatment. Expand
An Evidence-based Perspective of Ganoderma Lucidum (Lucid Ganoderma) for Cancer Patients
TLDR
The combination from lucid ganoderma and other herbs or foods as an alternative treatment might exhibit synergistic anticancer efficacy, however, more studies regarding the safety and application in clinical trial need to be processed in the future for providing more evidences. Expand
Active lipids of Ganoderma lucidum spores-induced apoptosis in human leukemia THP-1 cells via MAPK and PI3K pathways.
TLDR
This study for the first time suggests that active lipids of Ganoderma lucidum spores is able to enhance apoptosis in THP-1 cells, at least in part, through inhibition of ERK1/2, Akt and activation of JNK 1/2 signaling pathways. Expand
Ganoderma lucidum exerts anti-tumor effects on ovarian cancer cells and enhances their sensitivity to cisplatin.
TLDR
The findings suggest that Ganoderma lucidum exerts multiple anti-tumor effects on ovarian cancer cells and can enhance the sensitivity of EOC cells to cisplatin. Expand
Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide inhibits prostate cancer cell migration via the protein arginine methyltransferase 6 signaling pathway
TLDR
The results indicate that GLP was effective in inhibiting cell growth, the cell cycle and cell migration, and the suppressive effect of GLP on cell migration may occur via the PRMT6 signaling pathway. Expand
Anti-Cancer Effects of an Optimised Combination of Ginsenoside Rg3 Epimers on Triple Negative Breast Cancer Models
TLDR
The optimised combination of Rg3 epimers showed promising results as a potential treatment option for TNBC patients and shrunk the primary tumour and decreased the load of metastasis in mice. Expand
Sensory Performance, Proximate and Antioxidant Activity of Tea from Composite Formulation of Cymbopogon citratus, Lippia multiflora and Ganoderma lucidum
Commercially produced herbal green teas consumed in Ghana are mostly those imported into the country. However, there are many plants such as “Srenunum” (Lippia multiflora) and lemongrass (CymbopogonExpand
Clinical Evaluation of Guilu Erxian Jiao in Treating Perimenopausal Syndrome
TLDR
GEJ is effective for relieving perimenopausal syndrome, and taking high-dose GEJ once per day for 2 months elevates more serum estradiol levels than does taking a low dose, therefore, it is concluded that GEJ is beneficial for treating perimenopause. Expand
Functional Roles of Syk in Macrophage-Mediated Inflammatory Responses
TLDR
The characteristics of Spleen tyrosine kinase-mediated signaling pathways are described, the recent findings supporting the crucial roles of Syk in macrophage-mediated inflammatory responses and diseases are summarized, and Syk-targeted drug development for the therapy of inflammatory diseases is discussed.

Activities of fresh juice of Scutellaria barbata and warmed water extract of Radix Sophorae Tonkinensis on anti-proliferation and apoptosis of human cancer cell lines.
TLDR
It is believed that, although Radix Sophorae Tonkinensis was demonstrated to have toxic components including matrine and oxymatrine, it is still worthwhile to further investigate its anti-cancer potential under a safety toxicological precaution. Expand
Antiproliferative and apoptosis-inducing activity of Brucea javanica extract on human carcinoma cells.
TLDR
BJE-induced cancer cell death proceeds through a mitochondrial dependent pathway associated with caspase 3 activation, and additional analyses supported the hypothesis that the mitochondrial membrane potential depolarization pathway was induced by BJE. Expand
Antioxidant and anti-tumor promoting activities of the methanol extract of heat-processed ginseng.
TLDR
The methanol extract of heat-processed neoginseng (designated as 'NGMe') attenuated lipid peroxidation in rat brain homogenates induced by ferric ion or ferric ions plus ascorbic acid and inhibited TPA-induced production of tumor necrosis factor- in mouse skin was inhibited by NGMe pretreatment. Expand
Apoptotic potential of the concentrated effective microorganism fermentation extract on human cancer cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the concentrated form of the EM-X from its original fluid also possess antiproliferation ability together with induction of apoptosis on the human cancer cell lines including Hep3B hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and KG1a acute myelogenous leukaemia (AML). Expand
Ganoderma lucidum causes apoptosis in leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma cells.
TLDR
Results indicate that G. lucidum extract has a profound activity against leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma cells and may be a novel adjunctive therapy for the treatment of hematologic malignancies. Expand
Ganoderma lucidum extract induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in MCF‐7 human breast cancer cell
TLDR
The alcohol extract of Ganoderma lucidum inhibited cell proliferation in a dose‐ and time‐dependent manner and can directly induce apoptosis in MCF‐7 cells, which might be mediated through up‐regulation of p21/Waf1 and down‐ regulation of cyclin D1. Expand
Inhibition of proteasome activity in Gleditsia sinensis fruit extract-mediated apoptosis on human carcinoma cells.
TLDR
GSE- mediated apoptosis on HepG2 and MDA-MB231 carcinoma cells is mainly dictated by the mitochondrial-dependent pathway while inhibition of proteasome activity may also be involved in GSE-induced apoptosis. Expand
Ganoderma lucidum inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells PC-3.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that Ganoderma lucidum inhibits cell proliferation in a dose- and time-dependent manner by the down- regulation of expression of cyclin B and Cdc2 and by the up-regulation of p21 expression, and exerts its effect on cancer cells by multiple mechanisms. Expand
Gleditsia sinensis fruit extract-induced apoptosis involves changes of reactive oxygen species level, mitochondrial membrane depolarization and caspase 3 activation.

TLDR
It was demonstrated that cell cycle arrest, increment of hydrogen peroxide production, changes of intracellular acid-base equilibrium and mitochondrial membrane potential depolarization were induced from cancer cells after GSE incubation, and a defined signaling pathway for the mechanistic action of GSE on cancer cells was worked out.
