Therapeutic Solutions International Develops Adjuvant Technology to Enhance Prostate Cancer Suppressing Properties of NanoPSA
Company Reports Synergistic Activation of Anti-Cancer Protein NRF2 By Proprietary Combination Approach
OCEANSIDE, CA -- July 11, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Therapeutics Solutions International, Inc., (OTC Markets: TSOI) announced today the further development of a mustard seed extract containing the enzyme myrosinase for hydrolyzation of glucoraphanin into sulforaphane.
Mustard seeds and mustard products are consumed worldwide with a wide variety of mustard seeds and plants. Among several compounds found in mustard seeds is the enzyme myrosinase, responsible for the hydrolysis of glucoraphanin into sulforaphane, our target compound.
This companion extract was simultaneously developed alongside NanoPSA, our proprietary glucoraphanin product. Although we know the gut flora is capable of myrosinase-like activity in the absence of myrosinase, we want to be sure to convert as much of the glucoraphanin into sulforaphane as we can.
Sulforaphane appears to act on the prototypical anti-inflammatory mechanism of inhibiting NF-kB translocation, a mechanism which disrupts inflammatory signals to the nucleus . Anti-inflammatory effects of Sulforaphane are mediated by preventing NF-kB from translocating to the nucleus, which disrupts pro-inflammatory signals from the cytosol and serum from acting in the nucleus.
For example, in rheumatoid arthritis, characterized by inflammation and rapidly proliferating synoviocytes, is commonly seen as a treatment target . Sulforaphane appears to be able to, in vitro in cultured synoviocytes, suppress TNF-a induced inflammation and proliferation when pre-incubated (secondary to activating Nrf2) and induce apoptosis in cultures already stimulated with TNF-a .
"The cancer-suppressing properties of sulforaphane are well known. Through combination with pterostilbene, we believe that NanoMyros (pronounced nanomuhross) is a non-toxic means of concurrently stimulating anticancer immunity while directly suppressing the antimetastatic and antiangiogenic activities of sulforaphane" said Timothy Dixon, President, and CEO of Therapeutic Solutions International. "Recent data suggests that classical drug treatments such as chemotherapy induce immune system activation. We believe that NanoMyros together with NanoPSA are potent agents which can magnify cancer-killing activity of various existing therapies, as well as be used as a monotherapy in certain circumstances."
