Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is the most common malignant tumor in salivary glands and high-grade MEC in particular demonstrates little response to chemotherapy which has been used largely for palliative treatment of metastatic disease. Baicalin, one of the main active compounds of Scutellaria baicalensis, possesses anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and(More)
Multidrug resistance-related protein 1 (MRP1 or ABCC1), a membrane-bound energy-dependent efflux transporter, is overexpressed in several kinds of multidrug-resistant cell lines and related to multidrug-resistance (MDR) of various cancers. In this study, we investigated whether MRP1 was involved in the chemoresistance of mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC). We(More)
OBJECTIVES Multidrug resistance-related protein 1 (MRP1) overexpression is a well acknowledged predictor of poor response to chemotherapy, but MRP1 also correlated to better prognosis in some reports, especially for patients not pretreated with chemotherapy. In our previous study, we found nuclear translocation of MRP1 in mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) for(More)
PURPOSE Management of an infratemporal fossa abscess (IFA), which is a specific form of severe and advanced deep fascial space infection (DFI), is based mainly on traditional methods. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of mandibular coronoidectomy in accelerating IFA healing. PATIENTS AND METHODS This research is a single-center(More)
