Some investigators suggested that the use of free radical scavengers might provide improvement in schizophrenia. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness and to evaluate the side effects of extract of(More)
Survivin, a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis protein family, is implicated in the dysregulation of apoptosis in human cancers. Survivin and survivin-deltaEx3, one of its two alternatively spliced isoforms, confer anti-apoptotic activities in human tumours, while survivin-2B antagonizes such anti-apoptotic properties. The current study was undertaken to(More)
BACKGROUND The sustained growth of tumors necessitates neovascularization. As one of the potent endogenous vascular inhibitors, endostatin has been widely used in antiangiogenesis therapy for tumor. Cisplatin is normally administered in chemotherapy for lung cancer but accompanied with serious side effects. In the current study, we investigated a novel(More)
