can be indicated as an anticancer product since it reduced the incidence of aberrant crypt foci around 70 to 80%. This compound was still able to reduce the relation crypt/foci, which strengthen its anticarcinogenic action as indicated by Pattananandecha et al. (2016). Besides the modes of action mentioned above, it is important to highlight that the DMH is hydrolyzed in the liver and generates methylazoxymethanol, which in conjunction with β-glucuronic acid is transported to the intestinal lumen where the β-glucuronidase bacterial enzyme releases the active metabolite of the DMH, the azoxymethane (LaMont and O’Gorman, 1978). This metabolite triggers an inflammatory reaction and an increase in cell proliferation in the rodent colonic mucosa culminating in development of ACF and cause GC → AT mutations in specific genes related to colorectal cancer such as β-catenin and K-ras (Krutovskikh and Turosov, 1994). Thus, the reduction of bacteria capable of converting these pro-carcinogens, indirectly reduces mucosal damage and inflammation. This reduction of unwanted bacteria can be achieved through the increased resistance. The increased resistance against pathogens is the most promising feature in the probiotic development. The use of probiotic cultures excludes potentially pathogenic microorganisms and enhances the natural mechanisms of the body’s defense (Puupponen-Pimia et al., 2002). The modulation of the intestinal microbiota by the probiotic microorganisms occurs through a mechanism called competitive exclusion. This mechanism prevents the colonization of the mucosa by potentially pathogenic microorganisms, by competition for adhesion sites, competition for nutrients and/or production of antimicrobial compounds, and by connecting the final carcinogen promoting their removal via faeces (Durko and Malecka-Panas, 2014). Facing that, it is considered that the Activia ® product favors the

ANTICARCINOGENIC ACTIVITY OF RICE BRAN PHYTIC ACID AGAINST HUMAN BREAST CANCER CELL LINE (MCF 7)

ANTICARCINOGENIC ACTIVITY OF RICE BRAN PHYTIC ACID AGAINST HUMAN BREAST CANCER CELL LINE (MCF 7)

We conclude that rice bran PA inhibited the growth of breast cancer cells. The cytotoxic activity of PA is possibly due to iron chelating properties that may induce apoptosis via p53 and caspase dependent pathways. Hence, we suggest that PA is a promising molecule and can be successfully exploited in cancer chemoprevention or chemotherapy. However, further studies are warranted to decipher the precise molecular mechanism of this bioactive compound to evaluate its anticancer properties.

Intrinsic anticarcinogenic effects of Piper sarmentosum ethanolic extract on a human hepatoma cell line

Intrinsic anticarcinogenic effects of Piper sarmentosum ethanolic extract on a human hepatoma cell line

Previous studies have investigated other biological activi- ties including the anti-inflammatory effects of Peperomia pellucida [12] and the antimicrobial effects of Piper anducum [13,14]. Chloroform extracts from Piper sarmentosum have also shown considerable antimalarial activity against Plas- modium falciparum (in vitro) and Plasmodium berghei (in vivo) [15]. The water extract of the entire plant showed a hypoglycaemic effect in rats [16], while the methanolic extract from the leaves of Piper sarmentosum exhibited peak antioxidant activity [17]. However, the properties of this plant, and especially its anticarcinogenic activity, have not yet been investigated. The objective of this study was to evaluate the anticarcinogenic properties and mode of action of the Piper sarmentosum ethanolic extract in a human hepatoma cell line (HepG2). The Chang's liver cell line was used as a non-malignant cell for cytotoxic activity.

carcinogen treated control. In our previous study the anticarcinogenic activity of androgrphispanniculata leaves has been reported 18 . The methanolic extract of leaves of AP was more effective than stem extract in both Papilloma and micronucleus assay. Evidence has accumulated suggesting that this may be due to a reactive oxygen species.which play an important role in tumor initiation/promotion by enhancing or facilitating the metabolic activation and/or initiating effects of carcinogens [22]. . The plant extract may have inhibited the DMBA metabolism to its active form, delayed the carcinogenesis promotion phase or down regulated reactive oxygen species formation. [19-

being generated through the management of the processes – Figure 3. The PCT can manage multiple requirements relating to either specific aspects of the product, general aspects across the product, or aspects across multiple products and processes. Requirements have two roles within the PCT: as a measure of the extent to which customer requirements have been satisfied; and to enable the control flow within a process to be directed on the basis of the outcome of the requirement. Through the user interface of the VIP, a designer may get a list of requirements and their states to determine how a project is progressing, and take appropriate action in order to satisfy any of these requirements. Alternatively, requirements may be associated with design activities within the PCT indicating that the activity, once enacted, is expected to contribute to the satisfaction of the requirement. When a designer completes an activity, the associated requirements are displayed within the user interface of the VIP, allowing the designer to indicate which ones have been satisfied. When an activity is completed, the PCT is notified, giving details of the activity, along with requirement and guidance information. For ROPAX design, the PCT may be managing the enactment of a process that is responsible for designing and evaluating the general arrangement which consists of a number of design and simulation activities, such as defining the compartments, corridors, stairwells and muster stations, and simulating the evacuation for example. Once the general arrangement activity has been completed, the PCT would allocate the evacuation simulation activity to a designer that can undertake it. The requirement might not be satisfied once the simulation is complete if the passengers failed to evacuate the vessel within a predetermine time limit for example, and the designer may subsequently choose to attach guidance stating that the general arrangement appeared to have a bottleneck around one of the stairwells, restricting the movement of the passengers. This guidance would be communicated to the PCT, which would direct process control back to the general arrangement activity, with automatically generated guidance stating that the requirement had failed, as well as the guidance from the designer stating the problem with the stairwell.

Multiplier Decomposition, Poverty and Inequality in Income Distribution in a SAM Framework: the Vietnamese Case

We tried also to disentangle the effects of an injection into the activity of food processing (A5, act 5) on the same households groups considered above, in order to test which are the relative effects of an industrial activity strictly connected to the agricultural sector, in particularly on rural /urban farm and self employed households (H1, H5, H10 and H14). Results related to male headed rural farm households are shown in table A6.5 10 . Results show that there is a significant effect of the food processing sector on the income of rural farm households (H1 and H5) (always higher in the case of male headed households, H1) and that these effects are systematically higher than those for self-employed urban households, both male (H10) and female headed (H14). It is interesting, in particular, that the foods processing activity influences rural household income through indirect effects. As expected, indirect-indirect effects prevail in the case of H1 indicating that stimulating food processing sector activates other activities, from those the effects are transmitted to other households that in turn stimulate the income of the category of rural farm employed households.

Role of a polyphenol enriched preparation on chemoprevention of mammary carcinoma through cancer stem cells and inflammatory pathways modulation

Role of a polyphenol enriched preparation on chemoprevention of mammary carcinoma through cancer stem cells and inflammatory pathways modulation

Chemoprevention is an important part of integrative and translational medicine in oncology. Naturally occurring compounds, such as polyphenols in fruits, are increas- ingly recognized for their effects in controlling aberrant signaling pathways and inflammatory signals in CSCs. Our group has discovered that the fermented, probiotic- like product PEBP greatly accentuates its antioxidant potential and endows it with novel anti-inflammatory [22], antidiabetic [24, 25] and neuroprotective [23] bio- logical properties. The common mechanisms underlin- ing the multiple beneficial effects of PEPB are probably related to its capability to modulate the activity of global regulators that are associated with cellular transforma- tion and inflammation. In addition, biotransformations involving fermentation and catabolic breakdown have been suggested to enhance bioavailability [33].
