Oluwafemi Gbayisomore, Hannah Klausner and Shelley A Phelan, PhD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 08, 2023

One of the main components of Pomegranate Seed Oil is punicic acid, an omega-5 fatty acid that is capable of inhibiting breast and prostate cancer cell proliferation, although the mechanisms of action are not yet known. In order to further understand its potential anti-cancer properties, we investigated the effect of punicic acid on proliferation and cytotoxicity of human MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Cells were treated with punicic acid for up to 72 hours, and cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, and...

The Role of Adjuvant Metronomic Chemotherapy in Increasing Overall Response Rate in Patients with Breast Cancer

Bhushan Jain and Akhila Pakalapati

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 18, 2022

Treatment paradigms against cancer have continuously evolved over the years. Having said that, with its prevalence of more than 2 million cases each year, breast cancer represents an urgent global priority [1]. Breast carcinomas accounted for 11.6 % of cancer cases and were the cause of mortality in as many as 6.6 % of women in the world in 2018 [2]. Toxicity and chemoresistance are significant hurdles in conventional chemotherapy and to avoid these issues, a new approach to drug administration,...

Proposed Experimental Preparation and Administration of Dendritic Cell Vaccine for Treatment of Cancer (Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer)

Behzad Niakan

Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: July 09, 2022

It is suggested that a cause of inefficacy in dendritic cell vaccine is dendritic cell dysfunction. It is proposed that dendritic cell dysfunction is possibly due to the immuneregulatory function of activated platelets in cancer patients. It is suggested that activated platelets in cancer patient suppress dendritic cell activity against a malignant growth. A low platelet count prior to the removal of dendritic cells would possibly yield less dysfunctional dendritic cells....

Proposed Immunology of the Spontaneous Remission of Acute Myleiod Leukemia Treated with G-CSF

Behzad Niakan

Article Type: Hypotheses | First Published: April 29, 2022

It is suggested that the spontaneous remission of acute myeloid leukemia, particularly hypoplastic acute myeloid leukemia seen after G-CSF treatment is possibly due to G-CSF augmenting an acute inflammatory response. The acute inflammatory response is one occurring during a low count of activated platelets. Furthermore, it appears if a low platelet count (absence of hyper-coagulation or thrombocytosis) is present then G-CSF administration are more likely to induce a remission of acute myeloid le...
