Inspiring words from the breast cancer survivor herself, when she blamed her thinking process linked to breast cancer, “I said I can deal with this. I don't have to flog myself. Because I was doing that. I kept thinking what did I do wrong. I realised that we have done nothing wrong if we have got this disease. Every cancer is different. The symptoms and treatments are different and every human body deals with it differently. There are no formulas to it. That, I think, was the biggest takeaway for me. ” https://www.facebook.com/939389332891426/videos/1015901461906879/

Hello Friends, I leave you some information about a molecule that is extracted from the Cordyceps sinensis fungus Cordycepin (3'deoxyadenosine) is the most important as it has anti-cancer, anti-metastasis, anti-tumor, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. We know the resistance of tumor cells to anticancer drugs is a major obstacle in tumor therapy. Cordycepin inhibits tumor growth by positive regulation of tumor apoptosis, which induces cell cycle arrest and targets Cancer Stem Cells (CSC). Cordycepin regulates the tumor microenvironment by suppressing pathways related to tumor metastasis. Other benefits of Cordycepin in cancer cells: - Natural cordycepin induces apoptosis and suppresses metastasis in breast cancer cells by inhibiting the Hedgehog pathway. - Cordycepin induces apoptotic cell death in human brain cancer by modulating autophagy. - Treatment with Cordycepin resulted in increased apoptosis in HCT116 cells, inhibited the growth of colon cancer cells. - Cordycepin significantly suppressed the proliferation of esophageal cancer cells. - Cordycepin induces apoptosis of human ovarian cancer cells by inhibiting the CCL5-mediated Akt / NF-κB signaling pathway. Cordycepin inhibited metastasis in human ovarian carcinoma cells, - Cordycepin down-regulates Cdk-2 to interfere with the cell cycle and increases apoptosis by generating ROS in cervical cancer cells. - Anti-proliferative effect on lung cancer cells without toxicity for non-cancer cells. - Cordycepin inhibits cancer cell proliferation and angiogenesis through a DEK interaction through ERK signaling in liver cholangiocarcinoma. - Cordycepin induces apoptosis of human lung cancer cells by inhibiting the ERK / Slug signaling pathway mediated by nitric oxide. - Cordycepin induces apoptosis in human pancreatic cancer cells through the intrinsic pathway mediated by mitochondria and suppresses tumor growth. - Cordycepin induces apoptosis through the DR3 pathway in HT-29 human colon cancer. - Cordycepin suppresses the migration and invasion of human liver cancer cells by negatively regulating the expression of CXCR4.
