AIM To investigate the effect of polysomy 17 on HER-2 status as evaluated by immunohistochemistry (IHC), dual-colour fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) and chromogenic in situ hybridisation (CISH). METHODS Dual-probe FISH and single-probe CISH were performed to detect HER-2 gene amplification, and IHC to detect HER-2 expression, on 309 invasive(More)
To evaluate seven molecular markers including cyclooxygenase -2, epidermal growth factor receptor, Ki-67, p21, survivin, thymidylate synthase, and vascular endothelial growth factor for prediction of response to preoperative chemoradiotherapy in locally advanced rectal cancer. Fifty-four patients with clinical T3-4 and/or node-positive rectal cancer who(More)
We investigated the protective effects of chlorogenic acid (CGA), a polyphenol compound, on oxidative damage induced by UVB exposure on human HaCaT cells. In a cell-free system, CGA scavenged 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radicals, superoxide anions, hydroxyl radicals, and intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by hydrogen peroxide and(More)
PURPOSE Clinical stage of gastric cancer is currently assessed by computed tomography. Accurate clinical staging is important for the tailoring of therapy. This study evaluated the accuracy of clinical N staging using stomach protocol computed tomography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between March 2004 and November 2012, 171 patients with gastric cancer(More)
The present study investigated the apoptotic effects of esculetin, a coumarin derivative, on the human colon cancer cell line HT-29. Esculetin had cytotoxic effects on HT-29 cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner; treatment with 55 μg/mL esculetin reduced cell viability by 50%. Esculetin induced apoptosis, as evidenced by apoptotic body formation, an(More)
The cytoprotective mechanism of 7, 8-dihydroxyflavone (DHF) against oxidative stress-induced cell damage with respect to its stimulatory effect on the expression of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), a potent antioxidant enzyme, was investigated in the present study. Up-regulation of HO-1 expression by DHF was both dose and time dependent in lung fibroblast V79-4(More)
Ectopic pancreas is a well-known developmental anomaly found in approximately 2% of all autopsies, frequently in the gastrointestinal tract. Mediastinal pancreatic ectopia is very rare; only a few cases have been described in the English-language literature. According to previous reports, the pancreatic tissue is detected in the cyst wall or appears as(More)
Polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma is a rare malignancy arising from the minor salivary glands in the aerodigestive system, most frequently the hard palate. The treatment of choice is wide surgical resection, and the efficacy of radiotherapy has not been confirmed. A 54-year-old male presenting with a mass at the base of the tongue performed transoral(More)
Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) catabolizes heme into carbon monoxide, biliverdin, and free iron which mediate its protective effect against oxidative stress. The aim of the present study was to determine the expression level and activity of HO-1 in Korean colon cancer tissues and cell lines. HO-1 protein expression was higher (>1.5-fold) in tumor tissues than in(More)
PURPOSE Previously we demonstrated that phloroglucinol (1,3,5-trihydroxybenzene) protected human HaCaT keratinocytes against ultraviolet B (UVB, 280-320 nm)-induced oxidative stress in vitro by scavenging intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS). The current study investigated whether phloroglucinol could similarly protect the mouse skin against(More)
