Abstract

Natural product therapy has been gaining therapeutic importance against various diseases including cancer. The failure of chemotherapy due to its associated adverse effects promoted adjunct therapy with natural products. Phytochemicals exert anti-carcinogenic activities through regulati...read more

Innate Immunity: Neurodegeneration

The innate immune system is a first line of defense against infection. Pathological states can occur if there is over activation of the innate immune system, particularly in the. The excessive activation of these cells can lead to inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research on innate immunity and neurodegeneration.

Acute Stroke

A stroke occurs when blood supply to the brain is interrupted depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients. This feed focuses cerebrovascular accidents including ischemic and paralytic stroke.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Autophagy & Model Organisms

Autophagy is a cellular process that allows degradation by the lysosome of cytoplasmic components such as proteins or organelles. Here is the latest research on autophagy & model organisms

Role of Autophagy in Cancer

Autophagy is an regulated intracellular process that allow degradation and recycling of cellular components. It plays a dual role in tumor promotion and tumor suppression. Here is the latest research on its role in cancer.

Targeting Autophagy in Cardiovascular Disease

Autophagy is an important pathway for breaking down proteins and damaged organelles and may play an important role in reducing cardiovascular diseases. Discover the latest research on Targeting Autophagy in Cardiovascular Disease here.

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.

Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.

Cardiovascular Inflammation

Inflammation plays a significant role in the development of cardiovascular diseases, an understanding of these endogenous processes is critical for evaluating the risks and potential treatment strategies. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular inflammation here.

Neurodegeneration: Endolysosome

This feed focuses on the role of the endolysosome, an organelle involved in protein degradation. Defects in the endolysosome may cause neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease.

Chemosensitizers

A chemosensitizer is a drug that makes tumor cells more sensitive to the effects of chemotherapy. Discover the latest research on chemosensitizers here.

Cardiovascular Disorder in Diabetes

Diabetes is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disorders and heart failure. Discover the latest research here.

Oxidative Stress & Diabetes

Oxidative stress plays a critical role in the development of many diseases including microvascular and cardiovascular complications in diabetes. Here is the latest research on the role of oxidative stress in diabetes.

Autophagy & Disease

Autophagy is an important cellular process for normal physiology and both elevated and decreased levels of autophagy are associated with disease. Here is the latest research.

ROS Signalling in Cancer

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been found to be present in many cancers, having both pro-tumor promoting effects and anti-tumor signalling effects. The balance between the levels of ROS and tumorigenesis is still unclear. Discover the latest research on ROS signalling in cancer here.

Inflammation & Cancer

Inflammation has been implicated in initiation and progression of tumors, as well as elimination of cancerous cells. Here is the latest research on the role of inflammation in cancer.

Ischemic Vascular Disease

Ischemic vascular disease occurs when there is reduced blood flow and supply through a vessel. When plaque builds up in arteries it is known as atherosclerosis and can affect many different arteries throughout the body, including the heart, brain, legs, arms and kidneys. Discover the latest research on ischemic vascular disease here.

Astrocytes and Neurodegeneration

Astrocytes are important for the health and function of the central nervous system. When these cells stop functioning properly, either through gain of function or loss of homeostatic controls, neurodegenerative diseases can occur. Here is the latest research on astrocytes and neurodegeneration.

Autophagy & Metabolism

Autophagy preserves the health of cells and tissues by replacing outdated and damaged cellular components with fresh ones. In starvation, it provides an internal source of nutrients for energy generation and, thus, survival. A powerful promoter of metabolic homeostasis at both the cellular and whole-animal level, autophagy prevents degenerative diseases. It does have a downside, however--cancer cells exploit it to survive in nutrient-poor tumors.

Drug Resistance in Cancer

Drug resistance to cancer treatments is a major concern for patients with the disease. Single and multi-drug resistance to cancer therapeutics can occur, making it difficult to kill the cancer cells. Here is the latest research on drug resistance in cancer.

Autophagy: Cancer & Parkinson

Autophagy leads to degradation of damaged proteins and organelles by the lysosome. Impaired autophagy has been implicated in several diseases. Here is the role of autophagy in cancer and Parkinson’s.
