The emergence of melatonin in oncology: Focus on colorectal cancer

The molecular mechanisms underlying the multiple oncostatic actions displayed by melatonin in the onset and evolution of CRC are focused on and summarized epidemiological evidence, as well as in vitro, in vivo and clinical findings that support the broadly protective potential demonstrated bymelatonin are summarized.

Quality Evaluation of the Clinical Trials for Natural Products Used in Cancer: An Evidence-Based Literature Review

For the first time, the clinical trials for herbs used in cancer were critically evaluated on the basis of three widely used scales, i.e., Jadad, Delphi, and Cochrane scales to help oncologists prescribe or counsel patients.



Is there a role for melatonin in supportive care?

    Supportive Care in Cancer
  • 2002
The present clinical results demonstrate that the pineal hormone MLT may be successfully administered in medical oncology in the supportive care of untreatable advanced cancer patients and for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced toxicity.

Neuroimmunomodulation in medical oncology: application of psychoneuroimmunology with subcutaneous low-dose IL-2 and the pineal hormone melatonin in patients with untreatable metastatic solid tumors.

The administration of IL-2 and the pineal hormone MLT may induce control of neolplastic growth and a prolonged survival time in patients with metastatic solid tumors, for whom no other conventional anticancer therapy is available.

Anticancer potential of curcumin: preclinical and clinical studies.

Evidence has also been presented to suggest that curcumin can suppress tumor initiation, promotion and metastasis, and Pharmacologically,Curcumin has been found to be safe.

The immunoneuroendocrine role of melatonin

The pineal gland might be viewed as the crux of a sophisticated immunoneuroendocrine network which functions as an unconscious, diffuse sensory organ that is particularly apparent in immunodepressive states.

Antiproliferative effect of pineal indoles on cultured tumor cell lines

In vitro antiproliferative action of pineal indoles on several tumor cell lines including melanoma, sarcoma, macrophage‐like cell line (PU5), fibroblasts, and choriocarcinoma was examined by employing a primary culture of rat hepatocytes.

Calcium antagonistic properties of the sesquiterpene T-cadinol and related substances: structure-activity studies.

The calcium antagonistic properties of (+)-T-cadinol, some of its stereoisomers and related terpenes were investigated in both functional and radioligand binding studies, and the effects were

Pharmacology of cannabinoids.

There is evidence that besides the two cannabinoid receptor subtypes cloned so far additional cannabinoid receptorSubtypes and vanilloid receptors are involved in the complex physiological functions of the cannabinoid system that include motor coordination, memory procession, control of appetite, pain modulation and neuroprotection.

Inhibition of tumor angiogenesis by cannabinoids

It is shown that local administration of a nonpsychoactive cannabinoid to mice inhibits angiogenesis of malignant gliomas as determined by immunohistochemical analyses and vascular permeability assays.

A spiritual approach in the treatment of cancer: relation between faith score and response to chemotherapy in advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients.

This preliminary study suggests that spiritual faith may positively influence the efficacy of chemotherapy and the clinical course of neoplastic disease, at least in lung cancer, by improving the lymphocyte-mediated anticancer immune response.
