The chemical structure of ursolic acid is very similar to that of dexamethasone, a synthetic glucocorticoid. Herein, we investigated the antiproliferative and antiviral effects of ursolic acid and dexamethasone in human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cervical cancer cells. We performed 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazonium bromide assay to(More)
Cisplatin (cis-diaminedichloroplatinum), a DNA-damaging agent, which readily induces apoptosis in vitro, is one of the widely used anticancer drug in the treatment of human malignancies. Cisplatin has played an important role in cervical cancer management for effective chemotherapeutic regimen, but the underlying mechanisms inducing cell death at protein(More)
5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) is currently being used as an anticancer drug to reduce tumor bulk in order to increase the operability rate and postoperative survival in patients with cervical cancer, which has been combined with cisplatin (CP) because of its superior activities observed in human carcinoma cells. However, the combined anticancer effect of 5-FU and(More)
