The researchers were inspired by the healing properties of turmeric (haldi) and studied it for 10 years.

Researchers from the Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya (RGPV), Bhopal said they were inspired by turmeric, because it is a time-tested remedy. “Inspired by the healing properties of turmeric, which is available in every household and is considered to be an effective antiseptic that can be given to almost everyone to treat various ailments, we have studied it deeply for almost 10 long years and discovered two new molecules,” said Vice Chancellor of RGPV, Professor Piyush Trivedi.

Their research helped them discover two new anti-carcinogenic molecules, code named CTR-17 and CTR-20.

“The molecules elicit anticancer activity through a mechanism that involves obstruction of cancer cell division by inhibiting tubulin, a protein which is important for many important cellular functions, including chromosome segregation during cell division, intracellular transport, development and maintenance of cell shape, cell motility and distribution of molecules on cell membranes,” said doctoral student Dr. C. Karthikeyan.
