Cancer is a hyper proliferative disorder that metastasize into the vital organs in the body through invasion followed by angiogenesis and distant metastasis. Curcumin suppresses the proliferation of a wide variety of tumor cells, including breast carcinoma, colon carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma etc. The poor bio availability is the main drawback of the regular curcumin, which was addressed by Aurea biolabs and made a unique bio available formulation known as "cureit". The cytotoxic effect of cureit was established by a spectrophotometrical study using MTT on the effects of cureit on cell proliferation. It is inferred that the test sample - "cureit" could serve as an anti cancer medication.

    Mutant form of H-Ras (Harvey-Ras) proteins are found in almost 10%-25% of human tumours. Mutational activation transforms it into an oncogenic form, which results in the loss of intrinsic GTPase function and therefore the protein is constitutively in the active, GTP-bound state and is...
