EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) is a small 53 amino acid residue protein that is involved in normal cell growth, oncogenesis, and wound healing. This protein shows both strong sequential and functional homology with hTGF-Alpha (human type-Alpha Transforming Growth Factor), which is a competitor for EGF receptor sites. EGF binds to a specific high-affinity, low-capacity receptor on the surface of responsive cells known as EGFR (Epidermal growth factor receptor).

Artistry's serum specifically targets to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and revive the collagen and elasticity of your skin. Retinol repairs damaged collagen and cells, plumps out wrinkles, and adds elasticity and firmness. Plus, its Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor or EFGR Inhibitors controls the amount of Retinol which is a comfort for those who are afraid of the harsh side effects

This infographic shows the Breast Cancer Subtypes in Women. It’s important for guiding treatment and predicting survival. Know the Science: HR = Hormone receptor. HR+ means tumor cells have receptors for the hormones estrogen or progesterone, which can promote the growth of HR+ tumors. Hormone therapies like tamoxifen can be used to treat HR+ tumors. HER2 = Human epidermal growth Factor receptor, HER2+ means tumor cells overexpress (make high levels of) a protein, called HE2/neu, which has…

This review details the developments in drugs that target human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) for breast cancer, both HER2-inhibiting agents, which have shown limited success, and HER2-homing agents, which have shown more promise.

A chemical found in Magnolia bark, called honokiol, has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine to treat many medical conditions. More recently, scientists have discovered that the compound is an adversary of cancer. It seems to exploit many biochemical pathways to shrink tumors of various types, or to keep them from growing in the first place. It does this by blocking the epidermal growth factor receptor. Honokiol binds more strongly with EGFR than does the drug…

Epidermal growth factor - Epidermal growth factor or EGF is a growth factor that stimulates cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation by binding to its receptor EGFR. Human EGF is a 6045-Da protein with 53 amino acid residues and three intramolecular disulfide bonds. [ 14 Oct 2014 ]

Limited stage small-cell lung cancer patients who were treated with perioperative chemotherapy and surgery had better survival outcomes than ones treated with surgery alone.
