What is An Leaf Summer Extract produced in Changsha NutraMax Inc.?
Securinine is the major alkaloid natural product from the root of the plant securinega suffruticosa. It was originally discovered over 50 years ago and reported to have potent biological activity. Though this compound has not been utilized in the United States, it has been used clinically in several other countries particularly China and Russia. In China it is considered one of the 50 fundamental Chinese herbs and is used in Chinese herbal medicine . Securinine has been found to be active as a γ-amino butyric acid (GABA) receptor antagonist. Its activity as a GABA antagonist, likely explains its reported clinical success in limited studies for the treatment of neurological conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), poliomyelitis and multiple sclerosis . Though securinine has never been previously tested clinically as an anti-cancer agent, there is a single report that demonstrates that it can induce apoptosis at high doses in a leukemic cell line . In addition, we have recently found that securinine may have potential utility against certain types of colon cancer. Finally, securinine has also been reported to induce macrophage activation and therefore proposed as a potential therapeutic for infectious processes. Here we demonstrate that securinine can induce AML differentiation and has potential as an AML therapeutic.
