Description

Breast cancer represents the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women worldwide and preventive therapy could reverse or delay the devastating impact of this disease. Methyl-amooranin (methyl-25-hydroxy-3-oxoolean-12-en-28-oate, AMR-Me), a novel synthetic oleanane triterpenoid, reduced the incidence and burden of 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA)-induced mammary tumors in rats through antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects. Since chronic inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of breast cancer and several synthetic oleanane compounds are known potent anti-inflammatory agents, we aim to investigate anti-inflammatory mechanisms of
