Curcumin from the rhizome of the Curcuma longa plant has been noted for its chemo-preventative and chemo-therapy activities, and it inhibits the growth of many types of human cancer cell lines. In this study, the mechanisms of cell death involved in curcumin-induced growth inhibition, including cell cycle arrest and induction of apoptosis in human tongue(More)
The main objective of e-government is to create public values by delivering public services to citizens, businesses, and government agencies. Since business models have been noted as proper means to illustrate the concept and methods of value proposition and creation, the aims of this paper is at proposing a value-centric e-government service framework(More)
Gallic acid (GA) induces apoptosis in different types of cancer cell lines. In this study, we investigate the apoptotic effects induced by GA in human promyelocytic leukemia HL-60 cells, and clarify the underlying mechanism. Our results showed that GA reduced the viability of HL-60 cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner. GA led to G(0)/G(1) phase arrest(More)
BACKGROUND Functional reconstruction after a severe hand injury is best achieved by obtaining primary, stable soft tissue coverage to avoid delayed wound healing, prolonged immobilization, and joint stiffness. A wide range of procedures from spontaneous healing to local flaps has been proposed to treat soft tissue defects in appropriate circumstances.(More)
Liver cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and the leading cause of death in human populations. Butein, a tetrahydroxychalcone, has been shown to induce apoptosis in many human cancer cells, but the effects of butein on the migration and invasion of human liver cancer cells are not reported. Herein, we found that butein is effective in the(More)
Diallyl sulfide (DAS), one of the main active constituents of garlic, causes growth inhibition of cancer cells in vitro and promotes immune responses in vivo in experimental settings. However, its effects on the induction of cell cycle and apoptosis in human cervical cancer cells are still unclear. The aims of this study were to explore the anti-cancer(More)
It has been shown that deguelin, one of the compounds of rotenoids from flavonoid family, induced cytotoxic effects through induction of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in many types of human cancer cell lines, but deguelin-affected DNA damage and repair gene expression (mRNA) are not clarified yet. We investigated the effects of deguelin on DNA damage and(More)
Kimura's disease rarely involves a location outside the head and neck. We report a case of Kimura's disease in a young Asian man involving both elbows. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a soft-tissue mass of irregularly infiltrative strands in the subcutaneous fat accompanied with medial epitrochlear lymphadenopathy. The MRI appearance is described and the(More)
