Antiproliferative and antioxidant activities of a tricin acylated glycoside from sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) juice

From sugarcane juice, a flavone, tricin-7-O-β-(6″-methoxycinnamic)-glucoside, was isolated. The tricin derivative was shown to have antioxidant activity higher than Trolox® by means of the DPPH assay and lower by the β-carotene/linoleic acid system. It showed in ...

Comparison of mouth opening with different non-surgical treatment modalities in oral submucous fibrosis

Background: Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is a chronic, complex, irreversible, highly potent pre-cancerous condition characterized by juxta-epithelial inflammatory reaction and progressive fibrosis of the sub mucosal tissues (lamina propria and deeper connective tissues). The condition is linked to oral cancers ...

In vitro and in vivo anticarcinogenesis of sugar cane vinegar

In vitro and in vivo anticarcinogenic effects of sugar cane vinegar were identified. Antimutagenic components were estimated to be phenolics. Results indicate that sugar cane vinegar may provide protection against carcinogenesis by several steps, such as antimutagenicity, depression of cancer-cell ...
