Tubulin protein is a major target of drug molecules, and consequently, tubulin inhibitors have attracted great attention as antimitotic antitumor agents for chemotherapeutic use. It has been shown… Expand
Inhibition of hepatocellular cancer by EB1089: in vitro and in vive study.
BACKGROUND Despite significant antiproliferative potential, clinical application of 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2VD3] in the treatment of cancer has been hindered due to the development of… Expand
1α,25‐Dihydroxyvitamin D3 and its analogues, EB1089 and CB1093, profoundly inhibit the in vitro proliferation of the human hepatoblastoma cell line HepG2
Background: 1α,25‐dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25[OH]2D3) has been shown to inhibit the proliferation of various cancer cells including colon, prostate, melanoma, osteosarcoma and breast cancer.
Histamine in human breast cancer

Histamine inhibits lymphocyte function in vitro at concentrations of greater than 10−6 mol/l. The aim of this study was to determine whether histamine concentrations in breast cancers were sufficient… Expand
Performance characteristics of multiple urinary tumor markers and sample collection techniques in the detection of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.
BACKGROUND The optimal management of bladder cancer requires early detection of both primary tumor as well as recurrences. This study compared the methodologies of the following tumor markers and… Expand
In vitro and in vivo inhibition of liver cancer cells by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3.
Inhibitory effects of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-(OH)2D3) on the proliferation of a variety of cancer cell lines have been extensively reported. We have studied the effect of 1,25-(OH)2D3… Expand
Heat Sink Phenomenon of Bipolar and Monopolar Radiofrequency Ablation Observed Using Polypropylene Tubes for Vessel Simulation
Background. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is widely used for treating liver tumors; recurrence is common owing to proximity to blood vessels possibly due to the heat sink effect. We seek to… Expand
