Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are known to inhibit cancer growth by inhibiting the activity of cyclooxygenase (COX). However, there is increasing evidence that the COX-independent pathway may be also involved in the inhibitory effect of NSAIDs against tumor progression. Tolfenamic acid is a NSAID that exhibits anticancer activity in(More)
In this study, we found that oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs) in Korean patients have a high level of COX-2 expression when compared with normal mucosa. Sulforaphane (SFN), rich in cruciferous vegetables, has been reported to display anti-cancer activity against many cancers. However, the effect and molecular mechanism of SFN in the proliferation of(More)
BACKGROUND Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury induces intestinal mucosal barrier disruption, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, multiorgan failure, and death. The major pathway for the systemic inflammatory responses depends on nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB). However, direct measuring of NF-κB in injured tissues is not routinely available. Our aim(More)
Diindolylmethane (DIM), an isothiocyanate found in cruciferous vegetables, has been shown to have cancer chemopreventive effects. A series of synthetic C-substituted DIMs (C-DIMs) analogs was developed, including DIM-C-pPhtBu and DIM-C-pPhC6H5, which exhibited better inhibitory activity in cancer cells than DIM. This study examined the effects of C-DIMs on(More)
Previously, our group reported that sulforaphane (SFN), a naturally occurring chemopreventive agent from cruciferous vegetables, effectively inhibits the proliferation of KB and YD-10B human oral squamous carcinoma cells by causing apoptosis. In this study, treatment of 20 and 40 microM of SFN for 12 h caused a cell cycle arrest in the G(2)/M phase. Cell(More)
Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, a rare autosomal dominant disorder, comprises of a number of abnormalities such as multiple nevoid basal cell carcinomas, skeletal abnormalities and multiple keratocystic odontogenic tumors. Diagnosis may be difficult because of the variability of expressivity and different ages of onset for different traits of this(More)
Conventional implant protocols required a load-free healing period of three to six months between placement and functional loading of the implants. Many efforts have been made to minimize the duration of treatment time. Several literatures have documented immediate function with provisional or definitive prosthesis within a week of the placement in response(More)
Decompression is considered an effective treatment for odontogenic cystic lesions in the jaw. A variety of decompression devices are successfully used for the treatment of keratocystic odontogenic tumors, radicular cysts, dentigerous cysts, and ameloblastoma. The purpose of these devices is to keep an opening between the cystic lesion and the oral(More)
BACKGROUND Hemangioma and vascular malformation are benign vascular lesions that often occur in cephalic and cervical region. Currently, surgical resection, laser therapy, angiographic embolization, use of steroids, and sclerotherapy are used as treatments. CASE PRESENTATION This study reports three cases of benign vascular lesions that are remarkably(More)
