PAMs inhibits monoamine oxidase a activity and reduces glioma tumor growth, a potential adjuvant treatment for glioma
Natural plant antimicrobial solution alone or co-administration with low doses of temozolomide may be a potential adjuvant to reduce the toxicity of temozolomide and to evade drug resistance for the effective treatment of glioma.
In this review one of our Section Editors, Jacobus Eloff, provides advice for researchers who wish to investigate the antimicrobial properties of plant derived extracts.
High-resolution imaging and genomic technologies are changing the way we view the environment, cells, chromosomes and molecules. Here we share recent highlights from the BMC Series journals.
