Ovarian cancer is defined as
a condition of abnormal ovarian cells growth of ovaries. It is
one of most common cancer in US, according to the statistics adapted
from the American Cancer Society's publication, Cancer Facts &
Figures 2010, an estimated 21,880 women in the United States will be
diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 13,850 deaths.
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza Glabra)
also known as sweetwood, is the genus Glycyrrhiza, belonging to the
family Fabaceae, native to the Mediterranean and certain areas of Asia.
The herb has been used in traditional medicine to treat skin diseases,
coughs, constipation, bronchitis, inflammation, arthritis, etc.
Isoliquiritigenin (ISL), a licorice chalconoid, induced apoptosis in ovarian
carcinoma SKOV-3 cells and increased intracellular ROS levels through
ER stress-triggered signaling pathways, according to Shihezi
University(1). 18β-glycyrrhetinic acid, another compound found in the
same herb, potentiated the effectiveness of Hsp90(heat shock protein
90) in induced apoptosis-related protein activation, nuclear damage, and
cell death, through the activation of the caspase-8- and Bid-dependent
pathways and the mitochondria-mediated cell death pathway(2).
Licochalocone , a natural phenol licorice
compounds, enhanced 3-(5'-Hydroxymethyl-2'-furyl)-1-benzyl indazole
(YC-1), a anticancer drugs, in exhibition of apoptosis in human
epithelial ovarian carcinoma OVCAR-3 and SK-OV-3 cell lines, through decreased pro proliferative and increased apoptotic protein expression(3).
