ELLAGIC ACID A CANCER FIGHTING WONDER

New Drug Approvals

Ellagic acid

ELLAGIC ACID

476-66-4 

2,3,7,8-Tetrahydroxy-chromeno[5,4,3-cde]chromene-5,10-dione

as a very potent CK2 inhibitor

Ellagic acid is a natural phenol antioxidant found in numerous fruits and vegetables. The antiproliferative and antioxidant properties of ellagic acid have spurred preliminary research into the potential health benefits of ellagic acid consumption.

Ellagic acid is the dilactone of hexahydroxydiphenic acid.

Ellagic acid is an antioxidant and an anti-proliferative compound present in fruits, nuts and vegetables. In spite of evidences for anticancer activity in various cancer cell-lines, human cancer cells, the mechanistic role of ellagic acid is not conclusive enough to be recommended for a clinical use. The present review provides information about the chemopreventive role of ellagic acid in oral cancer and proposes molecular basis for ellagic acid’s inhibitory activity against oral cancer. We show that ellagic acid modulates growth of tumor cells through regulation of multiple cell signaling pathways including cell proliferation…
