Moringa Oleifera aqueous leaf extract down-regulates nuclear factor-kappaB and increases cytotoxic effect of chemotherapy in pancreatic cancer cells
BackgroundFewer than 6% patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas live up to five years after diagnosis. Chemotherapy is currently the standard treatment, however, these tumors often develop drugExpand

Inhibition of pancreatic and lung adenocarcinoma cell survival by curcumin is associated with increased apoptosis, down-regulation of COX-2 and EGFR and inhibition of Erk1/2 activity.
BACKGROUND Several studies suggested that curcumin inhibits growth of malignant cells via inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) activity. Other studies indicated that epidermal growth factorExpand

ErbB4 increases the proliferation potential of human lung cancer cells and its blockage can be used as a target for anti‐cancer therapy
Clinical and experimental data suggest that ErbB‐4, a member of the epidermal growth factor receptor family, may have a role in cancer progression and response to treatment. We found recently, usingExpand

Curcumin Augments Gemcitabine Cytotoxic Effect on Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Cell Lines
Background and aim: Gemcitabine, the first-line agent in pancreatic adenocarcinoma, has shown limited clinical benefit. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) represent one of the most promising targets for cancerExpand

Combination of cisplatin and radiation in cell culture: Effect of duration of exposure to drug and timing of irradiation
Responses to the combination of cisplatin (CDDP) and radiation in experimental and clinical studies have been reported to vary from high radiosensitization to clear sub‐additivity. We examined theExpand

Low pH value of pericellular medium as a factor limiting cell proliferation in dense cultures.
An attempt was made to determine the role of metabolic acidification of pericellular medium in regulating cell proliferation. A method of measuring the pH of pericellular medium at a distanceExpand
