Abstract:

Apigenin is a dietary flavonoid possessing therapeutic potential against cancers. This study was designed to investigate whether combination therapy with gemcitabine and apigenin enhanced anti-tumor efficacy in pancreatic cancer. In vitro, the combination treatment resulted in more growth inhibition and apoptosis through the down-regulation of NF-kappa B activity with suppression of Akt activation in pancreatic cancer cell lines (MiaPaca-2, AsPC-1). In vivo, the combination therapy augmented tumor growth inhibition through the down-regulation of NF-kappa B activity with the suppression of Akt in tumor tissue. The combination of gemcitabine and apigenin enhanced anti-tumor efficacy through Akt and NF-kappa B activity suppression and apoptosis induction.
