BACKGROUND Cordyceps taii, an entomogenous fungus native to south China, is a folk medicine with varieties of pharmacological activities including anticancer effect. To validate the ethnopharmacological claim against cancer, the antitumor and antimetastatic activities of chloroform extract of C. taii (CFCT) were investigated in vivo. METHODS The in vitro(More)
Purpose: An increase of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) has been found to improve outflow through the uveoscleral pathway. This experiment was designed to test whether reduction of inhibitor of nuclear factor kappa B alpha (IκBα) levels could enhance MMP-2 expression in human ciliary muscle (HCM) cells in vitro. Methods: The small interfering RNA (siRNA)(More)
