Lymphoma is a medical and chronic condition associated with abnormal growth of lymphocytes, a type of white blood cells of the immune system that fight infection.
Lymphocytes included natural killer cells T cells and B cells are found in the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and other parts of the body.
According to the statistics, in the US, this year, approximately, 8,000 people will be diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, leading to the death of 1,000 patients with the disease.
And, ” Hereditary lymphedema generally shows an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance with reduced penetrance, variable expression and variable age at onset”.
On finding a natural and potential compound for the treatment of lymphoma, researchers examined the effect of Cucurbitacin B (CuB) as ATO and STAT3 inhibitor against lymphoma.
Where Arsenic trioxide (ATO) is a chemotherapy drug used for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia.
And STAT3 is a protein which regulates genes involved in cell growth and division.
In nude murine lymphoma model, The synergistic effect of the combination of CuB and ATO was once again confirmed which exhibited significant apoptosis induction and tumor growth inhibition.
