Formation of oxy radicals by oxygen reduction arising from the surface activity of asbestos
Formation of hydroxyl radicals, in relatively large quantities, by oxygen reduction due to the surface activity of asbestos in a cell-free system is demonstrated, using electron spin resonance and ...

Nitrosulindac (NCX 1102): A new nitric oxide‐donating non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drug (NO‐NSAID), inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in human prostatic epithelial cell lines
The aim of our study was to explore the anti‐tumoral potential of the Nitric Oxide‐Donating Non‐Steroidal Anti‐Inflammatory Drugs (NO‐NSAID) NCX1102 (nitrosulindac), on three human prostaticExpand

Antiproliferative effect of nitrosulindac (NCX 1102), a new nitric oxide-donating non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, on human bladder carcinoma cell lines.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are potent antitumoral agents but their side effects limit their clinical use. A novel class of drugs, nitric oxide-donating NSAIDs (NO-NSAIDs), wasExpand
