Karmanos Researchers Report Enhanced Chemosensitivity of Pancreatic Cancer Cells by Black Seed Component
Date:4/13/2008

Karmanos researchers also discovered at a molecular level, TQ down regulated the normally active NF-B transcription factor and several of its downstream effector genes responsible for metastasis and cell invasion. NF-B is involved in cellular responses to stimuli such as stress, free radicals, ultraviolet irradiation and bacterial or viral antigens. It also plays a key role in regulating the immune response to infection, and is instrumental in the development of many chronic diseases, including cancer. These results suggest that an important molecular target could be down regulated by TQ in reversing chemoresistance, as well as the inhibition of invasion and metastasis of pancreatic cancer.

Further research is currently underway at Karmanos to obtain better clues for TQ's efficacy in future Phase I/II clinical trials. Thus, the research team at Karmanos is actively collaborating with physicians both at the Karmanos Cancer Center and the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas for assessing the clinical utility of TQ.
