BACKGROUND AND AIM The development of endoscopic treatment, such as endoscopic submucosal dissection, extends the indications for endoscopic resection in patients with early gastric cancer (EGC). Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is the first-choice imaging modality for determining the depth of invasion of gastric cancer. The aim of the present study was to(More)
Piceatannol (3,5,3',4'-tetrahydroxy-trans-stilbene; PIC) is a polyphenol found in grapes. It is known as a protein kinase inhibitor that modifies multiple cellular targets, exerting immunosuppressive and antitumorigenic activities in several cell lines. The purpose of the present work was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of PIC on dextran sulfate(More)

Epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a significant role in tumor progression and invasion. Snail is a known regulator of EMT in various malignant tumors. This study investigated the role of Snail in gastric cancer. We examined the effects of silenced or overexpressed Snail using lenti-viral constructs in gastric cancer cells. Immunohistochemical(More)
As with many other anti-cancer agents, docetaxel is a substrate for ATP-binding cassette transporters such as P-glycoprotein and its metabolism is mainly catalysed by CYP3A. In order to improve the oral bioavailability of docetaxel, a component of turmeric, curcumin, which can down-regulate the intestinal P-glycoprotein and CYP3A protein levels, was used(More)
BACKGROUND Given the increasing use of endoscopic resection as a therapeutic modality for cases of early gastric cancer (EGC), it is very important to define strict criteria for the use of endoscopic mucosal resection and endoscopic submucosal dissection. To date, the criteria are almost entirely based on Japanese literature evaluating the risk of lymph(More)
PURPOSE Additional surgery is commonly recommended in gastric cancer patients who have a high risk of lymph node metastasis or a positive resection margin after endoscopic resection. We conducted this study to determine factors related to residual cancer and to determine the appropriate treatment strategy. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 28 patients who(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is a valuable imaging tool for evaluating subepithelial lesions in the stomach. However, there are few studies on differentiation between gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) and benign mesenchymal tumors, such as leiomyoma or schwannoma, with the use of EUS. In addition, there are limitations in the analysis(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of MeOH extract of PL (PLME) and its fractions on angiogenesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS PLME and its subsequent fractions (methylene chloride, ethyl acetate, n-butanol and aqueous fractions) were evaluated in vitro. Specifically, the anti-angiogenic activities of PLME and its(More)
