AIM Trans-3,4,5,4'-tetramethoxystilbene (DMU-212) has shown strong antiproliferative activities against a variety of cancer cells. The aim of this study was to investigate the anti-angiogenic effects of DMU-212 in vitro and in vivo. METHODS Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were used in this study. Cell viability was studied with MTT assay,(More)
BACKGROUND Dimethoxy curcumin (DMC) is a kind of lipophilic analog of curcumin with great improvement in chemical and metabolic stability. DMC has been studied in breast and renal cancer, but no research in colon cancer has been found yet. MATERIAL AND METHODS Two colon cancer cells (HT-29 and SW480) and one normal human colon mucosal epithelial cell(More)
Accumulated evidence suggests that miR-106b played a key role in the promotion of the metastases of cancer; however, little is known about miR-106b in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). To investigate expression level of miR-106b in ESCC tissues, quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was used to detect miR-106b expression in 35(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of 3,4,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene (3,4,4'-THS), an analogue of resveratrol, on human non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells in vitro. METHODS Cell viability of NSCLC A549 cells was determined by MTT assay. Cell apoptosis was evaluated using flow cytometry and TUNEL assay. Cell necrosis was evaluated with LDH assay. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Cognitive and behavioral impairments are common in patients with abnormal thyroid function; these impairments cause a reduction in their quality of life. The current study investigates the decision making performance in patients with hyperthyroidism to explore the possible mechanism of their cognitive and behavioral impairments. METHODS(More)
P38β, p38γ, and p38δ have been sporadically and scarcely reported to be involved in the carcinogenesis of cancers, compared with p38α isoform. However, little has been known regarding their clinicopathological significance and biological roles in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Expression status of p38β, p38γ, and p38δ was assayed using(More)
Silicon has been identified as a highly promising anode for next-generation lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). The key challenge for Si anodes is large volume change during the lithiation/delithiation cycle that results in chemomechanical degradation and subsequent rapid capacity fading. Here we report a novel fabrication method for hierarchically porous Si(More)
Esophageal cancer (EC) is the eighth most common cancer worldwide and the sixth most common cause of cancer death. There are two main types of EC--squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and adenocarcinoma (EAC). Although some advances in the exploration of its possible etiological mechanism were made recently including behaviors and environmental risk factors as(More)
