Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) plays a crucial role in the development and invasion of gastric cancer. COX-2 inhibitors have been shown to be chemopreventive against gastrointestinal cancers. In vitro studies have suggested that the mechanisms may be related to induction of apoptosis and inhibition of angiogenesis. COX-2 may also have impact on E-cadherin. In our(More)
Hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) has been known as an efficient way to improve kidney graft function, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we adopt a rabbit reperfusion mode to investigate the upstream mechanisms of end-ischemic HMP of kidneys from donors after cardiac death (DCD), with static cold storage (CS) as a control.
