HPV Turmeric

Manouchehr Teymouri, Matteo Pirro, Thomas P Johnston, Amirhosein Sahebkar
Curcumin, the bioactive polyphenolic ingredient of turmeric, has been extensively studied for its effects on human papilloma virus (HPV) infection as well as primary and malignant squamous cervical cancers. HPV infections, especially those related to HPV 16 and 18 types, have been established as the leading cause of cervical cancer; however, there are also additional contributory factors involved in the etiopathogenesis of cervical cancers. Curcumin has emerged as having promising chemopreventive and anticancer effects against both HPV-related and nonrelated cervical cancers...

Cervical cancer is preventable because the carcinogenesis is slow and there are opportunities to detect precancerous lesions by Papanicolaou (Pap) smears, colposcopy, or HPV DNA tests and to treat them by antimicrobials, surgery or cold CO2 vapourization. We have earlier reported on the chemopreventive potential of integrated treatment with antimicrobials therapy followed by a standardized oral Turmeric Oil (TO) extract upto 12 weeks in women who had persistent Low-grade Squamous Intra-epithelial Lesion (LSIL) in their Pap smears...

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the sixth most prevalent cancer worldwide with about 600,000 new cases diagnosed in the last year. The incidence of human papillomavirus-positive head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HPV-positive HNSCC) has rapidly increased over the past 30 years prompting the suggestion that an epidemic may be on the horizon. Therefore, there is a clinical need to develop alternate therapeutic strategies to manage the growing number of HPV-positive HNSCC patients. TriCurin is a composition of three food-derived polyphenols in unique stoichiometric proportions consisting of curcumin from the spice turmeric, resveratrol from red grapes, and epicatechin gallate from green tea...

Curcumin (diferuloyl methane) and its naturally occurring analogs viz. demethoxy, bisdemethoxy and cyclocurcumin, present in rhizomes of curcuma species turmeric, have been shown to inhibit the proliferation of a wide variety of tumor cells. Target nuclear protein HPV 16 E6 (PDB ID: 2fk4) is the major protein actively participating in oral and cervical cancers. In silico studies indicate that curcumin and its natural analogs have effective binding with different active sites on HPV 16 E6 protein, ideal target for restoring the tumor suppressor function of p53 and thus allowing the apoptosis of infected cells...

Curcumin (diferuloyl methane), the major yellow pigment from the rhizomes of turmeric (Curcuma longa Linn), has anticancer properties. Infection with high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPV) leads to development of cervical carcinoma, predominantly through the action of viral oncoproteins E6 and E7. The present study aims at analyzing the antitumor and antiviral properties of curcumin, on HPV associated cervical cancer cells. Our findings indicate curcumin to be cytotoxic to cervical cancer cells in a concentration-dependent and time-dependent manner...

The transcription factor AP-1 plays a central role in the transcriptional regulation of specific types of high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs) such as HPV16 and HPV18, which are etiologically associated with the development of cancer of the uterine cervix in women. In our study, we investigated the AP-1 binding activity and the expression pattern of different members of the AP-1 transcription factor family (c-Jun, JunB, JunD, c-Fos, FosB, Fra-1 and Fra-2) in different grades of cervical lesions starting from mild dysplasia to invasive cervical tumors, including normal control tissues, using specific antibodies raised against each of the AP-1 members...
