SummaryFour pure chemicals, ellagic acid (E), caffeic acid (C), luteolin (L) and punicic acid (P), all important components of the aqueous compartments or oily compartment of pomegranate fruit (Punica granatum), and each belonging to different representative chemical classes and showing known anticancer activities, were tested as potential inhibitors of in vitro invasion of human PC-3 prostate cancer cells in an assay employing Matrigel™ artificial membranes. All compounds significantly… 

Effect of pomegranate peel polyphenols on human prostate cancer PC-3 cells in vivo

In this study, a nude mouse model with a subcutaneous xenograft of human prostate cancer cells was established to observe the in vivo antiproliferative and apoptotic effects of pomegranate peel polyphenols.

A Comprehensive Review of Punica granatum (Pomegranate) Properties in Toxicological, Pharmacological, Cellular and Molecular Biology Researches

These properties strongly suggest a wide range use of Pg for clinical applications, and the exact mechanisms for its pharmacological and toxicological properties remain to be unclear and need further evaluation.

Ellagic acid inhibits migration and invasion by prostate cancer cell lines.

Investigation of anti-invasive effects of ellagic acid in androgen-independent human and rat prostate cancer cell lines in vitro demonstrated that EA has an ability to inhibit invasive potential of prostate cancer cells through action on protease activity.

Evaluation of aqueous extracts of Taraxacum officinale on growth and invasion of breast and prostate cancer cells.

This study provides new scientific data on TO and suggests that TO extracts or individual components present in the extracts may be of value as novel anti-cancer agents.

APOPTOSIS OF MCF-7 CANCER CELL INDUCED BY POMEGRANATE ( Punica granatum L . ) PEEL EXTRACT

The results showed that PPE could inhibit the proliferation of MCF-7 cells in a dose and time-dependent manner and had the potential for the induction of antiproliferation and apoptosis in caspase-3-deficient human breast cancer cell line.

Possible use of Punica granatum (Pomegranate) in cancer therapy

Luteolin, ellagic acid and punicic acid are natural products that inhibit prostate cancer metastasis.

It is found that L+E+P inhibits PC-3M-luc primary tumor growth, inhibits the CXCL12/CXCR4 axis for metastasis and none of the tumors metastasized.

Punica granatum (pomegranate) and its potential for prevention and treatment of inflammation and cancer.

Punicic acid is an ω-5 fatty acid capable of inhibiting breast cancer proliferation

Results suggest that punicic acid has breast cancer inhibitor properties that are dependent on lipid peroxidation and the PKC pathway.

Possible synergistic prostate cancer suppression by anatomically discrete pomegranate fractions

The results suggest vertical as well as the usual horizontal strategies for discovering pharmacological actives in plants might act synergistically against proliferation, metastatic potential, and phosholipase A2 expression of human prostate cancer cells in vitro.

Regulation of the Expression of E-Cadherin on Human Cancer Cells by γ-Linolenic Acid (GLA)

Treatment of cells with GLA for 24 h increased the expression of E-cadherin in lung, colon, breast, melanoma, and liver cancer cells, but not in endothelial cells and fibroblasts and the increased expression was correlated with reduced in vitro invasion and increased aggregation, indicating that the increased E- cadaverin expression induced by GLA was biologically active.

Regulation of the expression of E-cadherin on human cancer cells by gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

Treatment of cells with GLA for 24 h increased the expression of E-cadherin in lung, colon, breast, melanoma, and liver cancer cells, but not in endothelial cells and fibroblasts, and the increased expression was correlated with reduced in vitro invasion and increased aggregation, indicating that the increased E- cadaverin expression induced by GLA was biologically active.
