Phytochemical Allyl isothiocyanate may be next pharmacotherapeutic target to identify the chemo drug for the treatment of brain cancer without inducing any side effects.
Phytochemicals, the natural chemical constituent, protect the plants against diseases and form their outer's color.
Brain and spinal cord make up the nervous system. Brain and Spinal Cord tumors originated are not very common.
Brain cancer is a medical and chronic condition characterized by cell growth disorderly in the brain tissue.
Benign tumors are noncancerous, and malignant tumors are cancerous. More than 190.000 people in the US are diagnosed with a brain tumor each year alone.
Most brain types of brain cancer in the older adult ages 50 to 60 are Chordomas. The cancer is a rare and slow growing, but it can invade adjacent bone and put pressure on the nearby neural tissue.
The 5-year survival rate of brain cancer is only 25%, compared to over 60% for cancers overall. Most adults with a diagnosis of aggressive glioblastoma survive only 1–2 years after their diagnosis.
Most common symptoms of brain cancer depending on the stage are persistent headaches and localized pain, gradual loss of sensation and movement, speech difficulty and persistent pain
Most primary tumors are caused by abnormal cells growth that surrounds and support neurons, with a small number may be caused by a gene defect from exposure to radiation or toxic chemicals.
In the reassessment of Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) in the reduced risk of cancer, researchers at the National Chung Hsing University conducted an experiment to examine the effects of the phytochemical in the brain cancer cells.
In compared to other cancer cell lines inhibition, AITC significantly decreased proliferation and viability of human brain malignant glioma GBM 8401 cells in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 9.25+/-0.69 microM for 24 h-treatment.
Dr. Chen NG, the lead scientists at the final report, said, "AITC is a potent anti-human brain malignant glioma drug and it shows a remarkable action on cell cycle arrest before a commitment for apoptosis is reached".
