Core Tip Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a serious threat to human health, and its pathological process is closely related to blood vessels. Currently, powerful targeted drugs for HCC treatment are lacking. The discovery of new drugs is an urgent task. As a complementary and alternative therapy, traditional Chinese medicine has played an increasingly prominent role. This study introduces frankincense and myrrh derived from the classic anticancer Chinese patent medicine Xihuang Pill. Through prediction and verification, the findings confirmed that this frankincense and myrrh treatment targets tumor blood vessels through EGFR-activated PI3K/Akt and MAPK signaling pathways to exert anti-HCC effects. Frankincense and/or myrrh treatment might be a potential anti-HCC drug candidate.
