In human glioma tumors, heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) has been shown to be upregulated both when compared with normal brain tissues and also during oligodendroglioma progression. The cell types that express HO-1 have been shown to be mainly macrophages/microglia and T cells. However, many other reports also demonstrated that cell lines derived from glioma tumors(More)
Vitamin D and its analogs have been shown to display anti-proliferative effects in a wide variety of cancer types including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). These anticancer effects are mediated by its active metabolite, 1α, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (calcitriol) acting mainly through vitamin D receptor (VDR) signaling. In addition to its involvement in(More)
The active form of vitamin D3, calcitriol, plays a major role in maintaining calcium/phosphate homeostasis. In addition, it is a potent antiproliferative and prodifferentiating agent. However, when effective antitumor doses of calcitriol are employed, hypercalcemic effects are observed, thus precluding its therapeutic application. To overcome this problem,(More)
