Recently, the synthesis of radiolabeled plant origin compounds has been increased due to their high uptake on some cancer cell lines. Eugenol (EUG), a phenolic natural compound in the essential oils of different spices such as Syzygium aromaticum (clove), Pimenta racemosa (bay leaves), and Cinnamomum verum (cinnamon leaf), has been exploited for various medicinal applications. EUG has antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory functions and several anticancer properties. The objective of this article is to synthesize radioiodinated ((131)I) EUG and investigate its effect on Caco2, MCF7, and PC3 adenocarcinoma cell lines...

BACKGROUND: Eugenol (EUG) is a major phenolic compound present in clove whose anti-cancer properties have been demonstrated previously. These anti-cancer properties may involves the modulation of different mechanisms, including α-estrogen receptor (αER) in luminal breast cancer cells, COX-2 inhibition in melanoma cells or p53 and caspase-3 activation in colon cancer cells. HYPOTHESIS: EUG promotes a burst in ROS production causing cell-cycle perturbations, mitochondria toxicity and clastogenesis triggering apoptosis in melanoma breast- and cervix-cancer cells in vitro...

BACKGROUND: Well-organised quality-controlled screening can substantially reduce the burden of cervical cancer (CC). European guidelines (EuG) for quality assurance in CC screening provide guidance on all aspects of an organised screening programme. Organised CC screening in Poland was introduced in 2007. The purpose of our study was to analyse: (i) adherence of the programme to EuG; (ii) programme process and performance indicators; (iii) impact of the programme on the incidence of and mortality from CC...

UNLABELLED: Essential oils have been found to exert antibacterial, antifungal, spasmolytic, and antiplasmodial activity and therapeutic effect in cancer treatment. In this study, the antibacterial activities of four main essential oils' components (thymol (Thy), eugenol (Eug), berberine (Ber), and cinnamaldehyde (Cin)) were evaluated against two food-borne pathogens, Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella Typhimurium, either alone or in combination with streptomycin. Checkerboard assay demonstrated that Thy and Cin elicited a synergistic effect with streptomycin against L...

Biseugenol (Eug) is known to antiproliferative of cancer cells; however, to date, the antiperitoneal dissemination effects have not been studied in any mouse cancer model. In this study, Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) expression was associated with lymph node and distant metastasis in patients with gastric cancer and was correlated with clinicolpathological pattern. We evaluated the antiperitoneal dissemination potential of knockdown AhR and Biseugenol in cancer mouse model and assessed mesenchymal characteristics...

Phenolic antioxidants, such as quercetin (QUE), curcumin (CUR) and the CUR-related compounds eugenol (EUG) and isoeugenol (IsoEUG), do not act in isolation in vivo but form an intricate antioxidant network together with ascorbate or glutathione (GSH). To clarify the antioxidant/prooxidant activity of these compounds in their interplay with ascorbate or GSH, the induction period (IP) and propagation rate (Rp) for mixtures of 2-mercapto-1-methylimidazole (MMI, a thiol) or L-ascorbyl-2,6-dibutyrate (ASDB, an ascorbate derivative) with QUE, CUR, EUG or IsoEUG were determined from differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) monitoring of the polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA), initiated by thermal decomposition of 1...
