Attenuation of tumor growth by honokiol: An evolving role in oncology.

Kapoor S


Honokiol may exert significant antineoplastic effects in other systemic tumors besides skin cancers by virtue of modulation of other pathways. For instance, honokiol attenuates tumor growth in mammary malignancies. It mediates its anti-neoplastic role in these tumors by accentuating the phosphorylation of AMPK. As a result, honokiol causes significant mitigation of tumor proliferation and growth.
