Secondary metabolites (essential oils) from sand-dune plants induce cytotoxic effects in cancer cells (2020)
Journal Article
Beeby, E., Magalhães, M., Poças, J., Collins, T., Lemos, M., Barros, L., …Pires, I. (2020). Secondary metabolites (essential oils) from sand-dune plants induce cytotoxic effects in cancer cells. Journal of Ethnopharmacology, 258, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jep.2020.112803

Ethnopharmacological relevance: Despite advances in modern therapeutic strategies, cancer remains the second leading cause of death worldwide. Therefore, there is a constant need to develop more efficient anticancer targeting strategies. The anticanc...

WSB-1 regulates the metastatic potential of hormone receptor negative breast cancer (2018)
Journal Article
Poujade, F., Mannion, A., Brittain, N., Theodosi, A., Beeby, E., Leszczynska, K. B., …Pires, I. M. (2018). WSB-1 regulates the metastatic potential of hormone receptor negative breast cancer. The British journal of cancer / Cancer Research Campaign, 118(9), 1229-1237. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41416-018-0056-3

© 2018 Cancer Research UK. Background: Metastatic spread is responsible for the majority of cancer-associated deaths. The tumour microenvironment, including hypoxia, is a major driver of metastasis. The aim of this study was to investigate the role o... Read More about WSB-1 regulates the metastatic potential of hormone receptor negative breast cancer.

Low molecular weight heparin suppresses tissue factor-mediated cancer cell invasion and migration in vitro (2011)
Journal Article
Ettelaie, C., Fountain, D., Collier, M. E. W., Beeby, E., Xiao, Y. P., & Maraveyas, A. (2011). Low molecular weight heparin suppresses tissue factor-mediated cancer cell invasion and migration in vitro. Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine, 2(2), 363-367. https://doi.org/10.3892/etm.2011.211

Elevated expression of tissue factor (TF) has been associated with an increased risk of thrombosis in the majority of cancers. Moreover, treatment of cancer patients with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) appears to have beneficial effects that rea...
