Dihydromethysticin (DHM), a natural compound derived from Kava, has been reported to be effective against mental disorders and some malignant tumors. However, little is known about the inhibitory effect of DHM on colorectal cancer (CRC). First, we examined the impact of DHM on human colon cancer cell lines, which demonstrated that DHM inhibits proliferation, migration, and invasion and promotes apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in colon cancer cells in vitro. Using small hairpin RNA, we inhibited nucleotide-oligomerization domain-like receptor subfamily C3 (NLRC3)/phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway to elucidate the partial signaling of DHM-mediated tumor suppression. Additionally, using an ectopic human CRC model, we verified whether DHM inhibits tumor growth and angiogenesis via the NLRC3/PI3K pathway in vivo. Overall, DHM showed an inhibitory effect on CRC by altering cell proliferation, migration, invasion, apoptosis, cell cycle, and angiogenesis, possibly via the NLRC3/PI3K pathway. Thus, DHM may be a promising candidate for CRC therapy.© 2020 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

- ASCO – Lung CancerASCO.20 Virtual Scientific Program, held May 29 - 31, brought professionals from all over the world together to hear the brightest minds in oncology present state-of-the-art treatment modalities and new therapies.
- AACR-2020The American Association for Cancer Research is the world's oldest and largest professional association related to cancer research.
- ACC 2020The American College of Cardiology decided to cancel ACC.20/WCC due to COVID-19, which was scheduled to take place March 28-30 in Chicago. However, ACC.20/WCC Virtual Meeting continues to release cutting edge science and practice changing updates for cardiovascular professionals on demand and free through June 2020.
- ASCO 2019The 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting, taking place May 31-June 4 in Chicago, will bring together more than 32,000 oncology professionals from across the globe. The theme of this year’s conference is Caring for Every Patient, Learning From Every Patient.
