Tubeimoside-1 (TBMS1) is one of the extracts of rhizoma bolbostemmae, which has remarkable anti-cancer function in the treatment of esophagus and gastric cancer in traditional Chinese medicine. However the mechanisms of its anti-cancer function is remain unclear. In this study, we demonstrate that TBMS1 could inhibit cell growth and metastasis in glioblastoma. MET is a member of the receptor tyrosine kinase family, which amplifies frequently in various human cancers. As an important proto-oncogene, multiple inhibitors have been developed for the therapy of cancers. Here, we found TBMS1 could reduce/decrease the protein level of MET via increasing its Ubiquitination degradation. Therefore, TBMS1 is a promising compound for the treatment of glioblastoma and an inhibitor of MET.

Objective. To investigate the effects of Jianpi Bushen (JPBS), a traditional Chinese medicine that is used to invigorate the spleen and tonify the kidney, combined with chemotherapy for the treatment of gastric cancer. Methods. Literature retrieval was performed in PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, CNKI, Wanfang Data Information Site, and VIP from inception to October 2017. Randomized controlled trials to evaluate the effects of JPBS combined with chemotherapy were identified. The primary reported outcomes were KPS (Karnofsky Performance Status), clinical curative efficiency, immune function, blood system, and nonhematologic system. Review Manager 5.3 (RevMan 5.3) was used for data analysis, and the quality of the studies was also appraised. Results. A total of 26 studies were included with 3098 individuals. The results of the meta-analysis indicated that treatment of gastric cancer with the combination of JPBS and chemotherapy resulted in better outcomes compared to chemotherapy alone. Conclusion. Evidence from the meta-analysis suggested that JPBS combined with chemotherapy has a positive effect on gastric cancer treatment. However, additional rigorously designed and large sample randomized controlled trials are required to confirm the efficacy and safety of this treatment.

AbstractBecause of the complex etiology, the treatment of gastric cancer is a formidable challenge for contemporary medical. The current treatment method focuses on traditional surgical procedures, supplemented by other treatments. Among these other treatments, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) plays an important role. Here, we used the systems pharmacology approach to reveal the potential molecular mechanism of PRGRC on gastric cancer which composes of Pinellia ternata(Thunb.) Breit., Rheum palmatumL., Gentiana scabraBunge, Radix Aucklandiae and Citrus aurantium L. This approach combines pharmacokinetics analysis with pharmacodynamics evaluation for the active compounds screening, targets prediction and pathways assessing. Firstly, through pharmacokinetic evaluation and target prediction models, 83 potential compounds and 184 gastric cancer-related targets were screened out. Then, the results of network analysis suggested that the targets of PRGRC were mainly involved two aspects: apoptosis and inflammation. Finally, we verified the reliability of the above analysis at the cellular level by using naringenin and luteolin with good pharmacokinetic activity as representative compounds. Overall, we found that PRGRC could influence the development of gastric cancer from a multi-scale perspective. This study provided a new direction for analyzing the mechanism of TCM.

Abstract Background: This study aimed to explore the main components and targets of E-Lian granule through which it reversed chronic atrophic gastritis with intestinal metaplasia, based on the traditional Chinese Medicine Integrated Pharmacology Network Computing Research Platform V2.0 (TCMIP V2.0) combined with GEO gene chips. It also aimed to construct various networks to predict and analyze the mechanism of E-Lian granule in treating gastric precancerous lesions. Methods: The effective traditional Chinese medicine components and targets of E-Lian granule prescription were obtained using TCMIP V2.0. The disease targets were collected using the TCMIP V2.0 platform and the verified gene chips in the GEO database, and the “drug components–targets” network, “compound–targets protein interaction network,” and “core compound targets–pathways network” were constructed using Cytoscape 3.6.1. The reliability of the predicted components and targets was verified using Pymol and Autodock Vina 1.1.2 reverse molecular docking. Results: A total of 262 unique active components and 680 potential active targets of E-Lian granule were obtained. Moreover, 2247 unique disease targets of chronic atrophic gastritis with intestinal metaplasia were obtained by searching the “Disease/Symptom Target Database” combined with the GEO chip (GSE78523) and GeneCard database. Further, 178 complex targets and 38 complex core targets were obtained using Venn and Filter, respectively, such as ALB, TNF, PTGS2, RHOA, ESR1, HRAS, JUN, FOS, CASP3 and so forth. The GO and KEGG nrichment analyses showed that E-Lian granule reversed gastric precancerous lesions not only through the direct intervention of the cancer pathway, gastric cancer pathway, and epithelial signal transduction in Helicobacter pylori infection but also through PI3K/AKT, VEGF, MAPK, cAMP, cGMP, Th1/Th2,and other pathways. It also had a significant correlation with cholinergic, 5-hydroxytryptamine, dopaminergic, and other gastrointestinal hormone-related signals. Finally, the core target verified in the GSE78523 chip was successfully used to dock with the active components of E-Lian granules. The reliability of the prediction was also verified. Conclusions: The components and molecular mechanism of E-Lian granule in reversing chronic atrophic gastritis with intestinal metaplasia were predicted by integrated pharmacology, GEO chip, and reverse molecular docking, providing an important theoretical basis for further study of the effective substances and mechanism of E-Lian granule in treating chronic atrophic gastritis.
