Research: Tien Hsien Liquid and Breast Cancer Cells (USA)
Chinese Herbal Mixture, Tien-Hsien Liquid, Induces G2/M Cycle Arrest and Radiosensitivity in MCF-7 Human Breast Cancer Cells through Mechanisms Involving DNMT1 and Rad51 Downregulation
The Chinese herbal mixture, Tien-Hsien Liquid (THL), has been proven to suppress the growth and invasiveness of cancer cells and is currently regarded as a complementary medicine for the treatment of cancer. Our previous study using acute promyelocytic leukemia cells uncovered its effect on the downregulation of DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) which is often overexpressed in cancer cells resulting in the repression of tumor suppressors via hypermethylation.

Elimination of Cancer Stem Like Side Population Cells in Hepatoma Cell Lines by Chinese Herbal Mixture Tien Hsien Liquid (USA)
Elimination of Cancer Stem-Like “Side Population” Cells in Hepatoma Cell Lines by Chinese Herbal Mixture “Tien-Hsien Liquid”
There are increasing pieces of evidence suggesting that the recurrence of cancer may result from a small subpopulation of cancer stem cells, which are resistant to the conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We investigated the effects of Chinese herbal mixture Tien-Hsien Liquid (THL) on the cancer stem-like side population (SP) cells isolated from human hepatoma cells.
Safety and Efficacy of Tien-Hsien Liquid Practical in Patients with Refractory Metastatic Breast Cancer (USA)
Safety and Efficacy of Tien-Hsien Liquid Practical in Patients with Refractory Metastatic Breast Cancer: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, Phase IIa Trial
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of Tien-Hsien Liquid Practical (THL-P), a Chinese herbal mixture, in patients with refractory metastatic breast cancer, we performed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, phase IIa pilot trial. Patients were randomly assigned to either receive THL-P or matching placebo and followed up every 4 weeks for 24 weeks.
Differential Effects of Anti-Metastatic Mechanism of Tian-Xian Liquid and It’s Bioactive Fractions on Human Colorectal Cancer Models (Netherlands)
Differential effects of anti-metastatic mechanism of Tian-Xian liquid (TXL) and its bioactive fractions on human colorectal cancer models
This study aimed to elucidate and compare the anti-metastatic mechanism of Tian-Xian liquid (TXL) and its bioactive components namely butanol (BU), ethyl-acetate (EA) and aqueous (WA) fractions on human colorectal cancer in vitro (HT-29 cancer cells) and in vivo (nude mouse xenografts).
Effect of Herbal Therapy on Intracellular Cytokine Expression of CD8 Cell in Nasopharingeal Cancer Patients (Indonesia)
Aims: to know the effect of THL medicinal herb on the immune response of nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) patients by measuring the intracellular cytokine level (IFN-γ and TNF-α) before and after THL administration. To introduce the intercellular cytokine evaluation method for evaluating immune response.
Regulation of p21, MMP-1, and MDR-1 Expression in Human Colon Carcinoma HT29 Cells by Tian Xian Liquid, a Chinese Medicinal Formula, In Vitro and In Vivo (USA)
Tian-Xian liquid (TXL), a commercially available Chinese medicine decoction, has been used as an anticancer dietary agent for more than 10 years without reported side effects. Aim of the study. The safety and quality consistency of TXL and its mechanisms of action on antiproliferation, antimetastasis, and reversion of multidrug resistance (MDR) regimens were explored.
Targeting PML-RARa and Oncogenic Signaling Pathways by Chinese Herbal Mixture Tien-Hsien Liquid in Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia NB4 Cells (USA)
Tien-Hsien Liquid (THL) is a Chinese herbal mixture that has been used worldwide as complementary treatment for cancer patients in the past decade. Recently, THL has been shown to induce apoptosis in various types of solid tumor cells in vitro. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms have not yet been well elucidated.
Tian Xian Liquid induces apoptosis in HT-29 colon cancer cell in vitro and inhibits tumor growth in vivo (Macau, China)
Tian Xian Liquid (TXL) is a Chinese medicine decoction and has been used as an anticancer dietary supplement. The present study aims to investigate the effects of TXL on the apoptosis of HT-29 cells and tumor growth in vivo.
Inhibition of Metastasis, Angiogenesis, and Tumor Growth by Chinese herbal cocktail Tien Hsien Liquid (UK)
Advanced cancer is a multifactorial disease that demands treatments targeting multiple cellular pathways. Chinese herbal cocktail which contains various phytochemicals may target multiple dys-regulated pathways in cancer cells and thus may provide an alternative/complementary way to treat cancers. Previously we reported that the Chinese herbal cocktail Tien-Hsien Liguid (THL) can specifically induce apoptosis in various cancer cells and have immuno-modulating activity. In this study, we further evaluated the anti-metastatic, anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor activities of THL with a series of in vitro and in vivo experiments.
Tien-Hsien Liquid Modulates Antigen-Stimulated Cytokine (Taiwan)
Erosive oral lichen planus (EOLP) is a T-cell-mediated inflammatory oral mucosal disease. Tien-Hsien liquid (THL) is an extract of Chinese medicinal herbs that can modulate the antigen-stimulated proliferative response of and cytokine production by T cells from patients with recurrent aphthous ulcerations.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Remedy Tian Xian Activates Pregnane X Receptor and Induces CYP3A Gene Expression in Hepatocytes (USA)
The pregnane X receptor (PXR, NR1I2) is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily that is activated by a myriad of clinically used compounds and natural products. Activation of PXR in liver regulates the expression genes encoding proteins that are intimately involved in the hepatic uptake, metabolism, and elimination of toxic compounds from our bodies.
Chinese Herbal Medicine Tien-Hsien Liquid Inhibits Cell Growth and Induces Apoptosis in a Wide Variety of Human Cancer Cells (USA)
Tien-Hsien liquid (THL) is a commercially available Chinese herbal mixture that has been used as an anticancer dietary supplement for more than 10 years. We recently showed that THL has strong immunomodulatory effects on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and T cells. To investigate the antitumor activity of THL further, we sought to test whether THL could induce apoptosis in various human cancer cell lines based on the fact that THL contains several components with tumor killing functions.
Tien-Hsien Liquid Can Modulate Antigen Stimulated Cytokine Production by T-Cells (USA)
Recurrent aphthous ulcerations (RAU) represent a common oral mucosal disease with altered humoral and cellular immunities. Tien-Hsien liquid (THL) is an extract of Chinese medicinal herbs with immunomodulating effects. Our previous study found that THL can modulate the antigen-stimulated proliferative response of peripheral blood mononuclear cells and T-cells isolated from RAU patients.
Immunomodulating Effects of “Tien-Hsien Liquid” on Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells and T-Lymphocytes from Patients with Recurrent Aphthous Ulcerations
Recurrent aphthous ulcerations (RAU) represent a common oral mucosal disease with altered humoral and cellular immunities. In our institution, an immunomodulating agent, levamisole, is used to treat RAU with satisfactory therapeutic effect. Tien-Hsien liquid (THL) is an extract of Chinese medicinal herbs with immunomodulating effects.
