This study describes the maternal-fetal disposition of bisphenol A and its distribution into the placenta and amniotic fluid after iv injection (2 mg/kg) to pregnant Sprague-Dawley rats. Bisphenol A was distributed extensively to the placenta and fetus, with their respective AUC values 4.4- and 2.2-fold greater than AUC for the maternal serum. In contrast,(More)
1. The study was performed to predict the pharmacokinetic disposition of bisphenol A in humans using simple allometry and several species-invariant time methods based on animal data. Bisphenol A was injected intravenously to mouse, rat, rabbit and dog (1-2 mg kg(-1) doses). 2. The obtained serum concentration-time profiles were best described by(More)
Although the flavonoid icariside II exhibits anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activities, its molecular targets/pathways in human multiple myeloma cells are poorly understood. To analyze the effects on signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) signaling and apoptosis, U266 multiple myeloma cells were treated with icariside II and performed(More)
Chronic inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is promoted by proinflammatory cytokines and closely linked to angiogenesis. In the present study, we investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of emodin (1,3,8-trihydroxy-6-methyl-anthraquinone) isolated from the root of Rheum palmatum L. in interleukin 1 beta (IL-1β) and lipopolysaccharide(More)
Reducing food residue by proper preparation methods before endoscopy after distal gastrectomy can increase the quality of examination and decrease patient discomfort. We evaluated the risk factors for food residue and proper methods of preparation for endoscopy after distal gastrectomy. Follow-up endoscopy with questionnaires was performed on 1,001 patients(More)
Ergosterol peroxide (EP) derived from edible mushroom has been shown to exert anti-tumor activity in several cancer cells. In the present study, anti-angiogenic activity of EP was investigated with the underlying molecular mechanisms in human multiple myeloma U266 cells. Despite weak cytotoxicity against U266 cells, EP suppressed phosphorylation, DNA(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to determine anti-cancer effect of Icariside II purified from the root of Epimedium koreanum Nakai on human acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell line U937. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Icariside II blocked the growth U937 cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner. In this anti-proliferation process, this herb compound(More)
Although brazilin [7,11b-dihydrobenz(b)indeno[1,2-d]pyran-3,6a,9,10(6H)-tetrol] isolated from Caesalpinia sappan was known to have various biological activities, including anti-inflammation, antibacteria, and antiplatelet aggregation, there is no report yet on its anticancer activity. In the present study, the anticancer mechanism of brazilin was(More)
BACKGROUND Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) is a transcription factor that regulates various cellular processes such as cell survival, angiogenesis and proliferation. In the present study, we examined that betulinic acid (BA), a triterpene from the bark of white birch, had the inhibitory effects on hypoxia-mediated activation of(More)
This study was designed to investigate the antitumor mechanism of Phytol in hepatocellular carcinomas including Huh7 and HepG2 cells in association with caspase dependent apoptosis and epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) signaling. Phytol significantly suppressed the viability of Huh7 and HepG2 cells. Also, Phytol significantly increased the sub G1(More)
