BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp), encoded by the multidrug resistance 1 (MDR1) gene, is associated with the emergence of the MDR phenotype in cancer cells. We investigated whether metformin (1,1-dimethylbiguanide hydrochloride) down-regulates MDR1 expression in MCF-7/adriamycin (MCF-7/adr) cells. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH MCF-7(More)
Breast cancer is a major cause of death worldwide. Human cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1B1 is a key enzyme in the metabolism of 17beta-estradiol, and CYP1B1-metabolized 4-hydroxyestradiol is a marker for breast cancer. Furthermore, overexpression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which produces prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)), has been detected in invasive breast(More)
SCOPE Capsaicin is a cancer-suppressing agent. The aim of our study was to determine the effect of capsaicin on tumor invasion and migration; the possible mechanisms involved in this inhibition were investigated in human fibrosarcoma cells. METHODS AND RESULTS We employed invasion, migration and gelatin zymography assays to characterize the effect of(More)
9L glioma cells consistently expressed major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I but not class II molecules. Herpes simplex type-1 virus (HSV-1) infection significantly reduced the expression of MHC I on the cell surface. Recombinant interferons could enhance the cell-surface expression of MHC I but had no effect on MHC II. This enhancement was(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Capsaicin, a constituent of peppers, has been linked to the suppression of tumorigenesis and carcinogenesis. The influence of capsaicin on cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1A1, which is involved in metabolism of carcinogens, and the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we examined the effect of capsaicin on CYP1A1 expression in mouse(More)
PURPOSE This study was to develop and prove the effects of a self management compliance promotion program for primary hypertension patients who reside in rural communities. METHOD The content of the self management compliance promotion program developed by this study was as follows: A leader trains patients as a group or individually, in walking,(More)
