The use of plants for healing purposes has been predated long before the existence of modern medicine. Herbal plants have formed a fundamental source for conventional medicine in discovery of single ingredient medication, including aspirin (from willow bark), quinine (from cinchona bark), and morphine (from the opium poppy)......
Herbal Andrographis paniculata may be used as therapeutic agent for treatment and drug resistance breast cancer, a study by the renowned institute suggested.
Breast cancer (malignant breast neoplasm) is condition characterized by abnormal cells growth in the tissues of the breast either from the inner lining of milk ducts (Ductal carcinoma) or the lobules (Lobular carcinoma).
According to the joint study lead by the University of Kalyani, Andrographolide showed a significant inhibition of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell proliferation in a time- and concentration- dependent manner.
The study also found that the inhibition of breast cancer cell line proliferation with no effect on normal breast epithelial cells, through reduced oxygen species (ROS) production and increased population of apoptotic cells.
Also in the MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell, Andrographolide, a major chemical compound found in Andrographis exhibited a strong anti breast cancer cell growth activities in regulating the breast cancer cell proliferation, survival and progression and breast cancer metastasis through various mechanisms involved pro inflammatory pathways.
Taking together, there is no doubt that Andrographis may be used as a possible chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic agent for human breast cancers. But large amount intake should only be prescribed by herbalist.
