An article co-authored by Aruna Basu, Hansjuerg Alder, Amer Khiyami, Patrick Leahy, Carlo M. Croce and Subrata Haldar was highlighted on the cover of the February 11, 2011 issue of Genes and Cancer. Their article, "MicroRNA-375 and MicroRNA-221 Potential Noncoding RNAs Associated with Antiproliferative Activity of Benzyl Isothiocyanate in Pancreatic Cancer", suggests that anticancer agent BITC might target the expression of miR-221 and miR-375 to switch hyperproliferative pancreatic cancer cells to a hypoproliferative state.
