Summary

Publications

  1. Mbuthia K, Mireji P, Ngure R, Stomeo F, Kyallo M, Muoki C, et al. Tea (Camellia sinensis) infusions ameliorate cancer in 4TI metastatic breast cancer model. BMC Complement Altern Med. 2017;17:202 pubmed publisher
    ..These findings on caspases offer valuable information on the mechanism of tea as an anticancer agent and will contribute to further research in future novel treatments. ..
  2. Ngure R, Eckersall P, Mungatana N, Mburu J, Jennings F, Burke J, et al. Lipopolysaccharide binding protein in the acute phase response of experimental murine Trypanosoma brucei brucei infection. Res Vet Sci. 2009;86:394-8 pubmed publisher
    ..We speculate that the marked concomitant increases in plasma LBP and endotoxin-like activity following murine trypanosome infection might play an important role in the pathogenesis of trypanosomosis. ..
  3. Ngure R, Eckersall P, Burke J, Karori S, Mwangi W, Wachira F, et al. Endotoxin-like effects in acute phase response to Trypanosoma brucei brucei infection are not due to gastrointestinal leakage. Parasitol Int. 2009;58:325-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Therefore trypanosomes are responsible for the elevated plasma endotoxin-like activity levels and the subsequent systemic acute phase response in the host. ..
