Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most prevalent types of cancer worldwide and a common cause of morbidity and mortality in humans. The garlic-derived organosulfur compound diallyl trisulfide (DATS) has been shown to induce apoptosis in many human cancer cell lines in vitro and also affords significant protection against cancer in animal tumor models in vivo. There is no available information to show DATS-induced apoptosis in vitro… CONTINUE READING
