    ..We demonstrate that RAW264.7 macrophages exhibit TRAIL-R1 surface expression and that the tested compounds: chrysin, apigenin and acacetin can inhibit TRAIL-R1 death receptor expression level on macrophages. ..
  3. Warat M, Sadowski T, Szliszka E, Król W, Czuba Z. The role of selected flavonols in tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand receptor-1 (TRAIL-R1) expression on activated RAW 264.7 macrophages. Molecules. 2015;20:900-12 pubmed publisher
    ..The results suggested that compounds being tested can modulate TRAIL-R1 expression and can enhance TRAIL-mediated apoptosis. ..
  4. Chudzik M, Korzonek Szlacheta I, Król W. Triterpenes as potentially cytotoxic compounds. Molecules. 2015;20:1610-25 pubmed publisher
    ..Nowadays, when neoplasms are main cause of death, triterpenes can become an alternative method for treating cancer because of their cytotoxic properties and chemopreventive activities. ..
  5. Jaworska D, Król W, Szliszka E. Prostate Cancer Stem Cells: Research Advances. Int J Mol Sci. 2015;16:27433-49 pubmed publisher
    ..Eradicating prostate cancer stem cells, the root of the problem, has been considered as a promising target in prostate cancer treatment to improve the prognosis for patients with advanced stages of the disease. ..
  6. Kłósek M, Mertas A, Krol W, Jaworska D, Szymszal J, Szliszka E. Tumor Necrosis Factor-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand-Induced Apoptosis in Prostate Cancer Cells after Treatment with Xanthohumol-A Natural Compound Present in Humulus lupulus L. Int J Mol Sci. 2016;17: pubmed publisher
    ..The findings suggest that xanthohumol is a compound of potential use in chemoprevention of prostate cancer due to its sensitization of cancer cells to TRAIL-mediated apoptosis. ..
