Cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 is expressed in hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) and HCC cell lines. COX-2 inhibition strongly suppresses growth of HCC cells in vitro by inducing apoptosis and reducing proliferation. Here, we evaluate the in vivo effects and mechanism of COX-2 inhibition of human HCC cell line derived xenotransplanted tumors in nude mice. Firstly,(More)
