INTRODUCTION The lung is one of the most important organs affected by metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma. However, pulmonary metastasectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma has not been well documented. The aim of this study was to evaluate long-term outcome after pulmonary metastasectomy due to metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS Between(More)
Cell death linked to oxidative DNA damage has been implicated in acute pancreatitis. The severe DNA damage, which is beyond the capacity of the DNA repair proteins, triggers apoptosis. It has been hypothesized that oxidative stress may induce a decrease in the Ku70 and Ku80 levels and apoptosis in pancreatic acinar cells. In this study, it was found that(More)
Virtual screening was performed to determine potent vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR)-2 kinase inhibitors. A database of approximately 820,000 commercial compounds was used for screening, and 100 compounds were chosen as candidate VEGFR-2 inhibitors through pharmacophore modeling and docking studies. These 100 compounds were purchased to(More)
A new diarylheptanoid, (5S)-hydroxy-1-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-7-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-hepta-1E-en-3-one (1), was isolated along with seventeen known diarylheptanoids (2-18) from the methanol extract of Alnus hirsuta f. sibirica leaves using bioactivity-guided fractionation. Among the isolated compounds, compounds 1 and 2 and 4-12 reduced lipid accumulation(More)
Src is an important target in multiple processes associated with tumor growth and development, including proliferation, neovascularization, and metastasis. In this study, hit identification was performed by virtual screening of commercial and in-house compound libraries. Docking studies for the hits were performed, and scoring functions were used to(More)
Reactive oxygen species have been known to cause DNA damage and induce apoptosis. During DNA damage, DNA repair proteins Ku70 and Ku80 prevent cell death, but severe DNA damage beyond the repair capacity of the DNA repair proteins triggers necrosis or apoptosis. Recent reports have shown that NF-kappaB plays a critical role in protecting the cells from(More)
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family of receptor tyrosine kinases has been implicated in a variety of cancers. In particular, activating mutations such as the L858R point mutation in exon 21 and the small in-frame deletions in exon 19 of the EGFR tyrosine kinase domain are correlated with sensitivity to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors in(More)
Previously we showed that oxidative stress induces apoptosis of pancreatic acinar cells with nuclear loss of DNA repair proteins. Oxidative stress has an important role in the pathogenesis of pancreatitis. Pancreatitis-associated protein 1 (PAP-1) is a protein secreted upon induction of acute pancreatitis. In this study, we investigated the role of PAP-1 on(More)
A novel series of N(4)-(3-chlorophenyl)-5-(oxazol-2-yl)pyrimidine-4,6-diamines were synthesized and evaluated as dual inhibitors of HER-1/HER-2 tyrosine kinases. In contrast to the currently approved HER-2-targeted agent (lapatinib, 1), our irreversible HER-1/HER-2 inhibitors have the potential to overcome the clinically relevant and mutation-induced drug(More)
Heat capacity (HC) has an important role in the temperature regulation process, particularly in dealing with the heat load. The actual measurement of the body HC is complicated and is generally estimated by body-composition-specific data. This study compared the previously known HC estimating equations and sought how to define HC using simple anthropometric(More)
