Breast carcinoma is the most common female cancer with considerable metastatic potential. Discovery of new therapeutic approaches for treatment of metastatic breast cancer is still needed. Here, we reported our finding with niclosamide, an FDA approved anthelmintic drug. The potency of niclosamide on breast cancer was assessed in vitro and in vivo. In this(More)
Aberrant fibroblast growth factor (FGF) and FGF receptor (FGFR) system have been associated with breast cancer. The objectives of our study were to investigate the effects and mechanisms of FGFR inhibition on tumor growth and metastasis on breast cancer. Our studies showed that the FGFR inhibitor PD173074 decreased the viability of several human breast(More)
Antagonizing vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2) to block angiogenesis has been applied toward cancer therapy for its role in promoting cancer growth and metastasis. However, most these clinical anticancer drugs have unexpected side effects. Development of novel VEGFR2 inhibitors with less toxicity remains an urgent need. In this study,(More)
To study the molecular mechanism of action of ligustrazine, a low-density oligonucleotide microarray for cardiovascular disease-related genes, was constructed, and the preparation and hybridization protocols were optimized. Under the optimized conditions, the molecular mechanism of action of ligustrazine was analyzed with human umbilical vein endothelial(More)
Cadmium is a non-essential metal with a wide distribution that has severe toxic effects on aquatic animals. Changes in hematology and muscle physiology were examined in silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) exposed to environmentally relevant levels of cadmium (0.01 mg L−1) for 96 h. Cadmium exposure induced significant increases in the red blood cell(More)
Technology of direct hot melt, concentration and crystallization to manufacture hydrazine hydrate solid waste into Na<sub>2</sub>CO<sub>3</sub>&#x00B7;H<sub>2</sub>O and Na<sub>2</sub>CO<sub>3</sub> was researched, and principle of process was discussed. Effects of available chlorine dosage, pH value on hydrazine removal rate and crystallization(More)
Energy efficiency has been a main concern in wireless sensor networks where Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol plays an important role. However, current MAC protocols designed for energy saving have seldom considered multiple applications coexisting in WSN with variation of traffic load dynamics and different QoS requirements. In this paper, we propose an(More)
