  • All primary nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) tumors contain hypoxic regions which are implicated in decreased local control and increased distant metastases, as well as resistance to chemotherapy in advanced NPC patients. One of the promising therapeutic approaches for NPC is to use drugs that can target hypoxic factors in tumors. In the present investigation, the type I ribosome inactivating protein α-momorcharin (α-MMC), isolated from seeds of the bitter gourd Momordica charantia, reduced cell… CONTINUE READING
