Transvaginal-hybrid vs. single-port-access vs. ‘conventional’ laparoscopic cholecystectomy: a prospective observational study
Concerning the length of hospital stay, transvaginal-hybrid cholecystectomy and single-port choleCystectomy appear to be superior to ‘conventional’ laparoscopic chole cystectomy, and transvaginals-hybrids access is associated with significantly less pain in the early postoperative course. Expand
Effects of increasing doses of a bolus injection and an intravenous long-term therapy of taurolidine on subcutaneous (metastatic) tumor growth in rats
An intravenous long-term therapy with taurolidine was investigated in rats after administration of a subcutaneous tumor load, finding the VEGF and TNFα levels decreased rapidly after t Taurolidine therapy with low doses in vitro. Expand
Effects of selective COX-2 and 5-LOX inhibition on prostaglandin and leukotriene synthesis in ductal pancreatic cancer in Syrian hamster.
Combination of Cox-2-in inhibition and 5-Lox-inhibition might be a suitable adjuvant therapy to prevent liver metastasis in human ductal pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Expand
Effects of octreotide in acute hemorrhagic necrotizing pancreatitis in rats
The aim of this study was to determine whether octreotide also has antioxidative effects in acute pancreatitis and time and dose of application were of interest. Expand
The impact of laparoscopic biopsy of pancreatic lymph nodes with helium and carbon dioxide on port site and liver metastasis in BOP-induced pancreatic cancer in hamster
Staging laparoscopy with helium might become an alternative to explorative laparotomy in pancreatic cancer. Expand
Effects of the Antioxidative Vitamins A, C and E on Liver Metastasis and Intrametastatic Lipid Peroxidation in BOP-Induced Pancreatic Cancer in Syrian Hamsters
Background/Aims: Antioxidative vitamins are known to inhibit metastasis. Therefore we evaluated the impact of vitamins A (retinol), C (ascorbic acid) and E (α-tocopherol) on liver metastasis in aExpand
Does enteral nutrition of dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids promote oxidative stress and tumour growth in ductal pancreatic cancer? Experimental trial in Syrian Hamster.
Administration of a diet rich in n-3 PUFA (FISH-OIL) resulted in a decrease of macroscopically visible tumours, thus indicating its beneficial effects in respect to attenuation of tumour growth. Expand
Influence of antioxidative vitamins A, C and E on lipid peroxidation in BOP-induced pancreatic cancer in Syrian hamsters.
Accumulation of vitamins in tumor cells seems to be responsible for high levels of SOD and consecutive intracellular increase of hydrogen peroxide levels, which might be one of the mechanisms decreasing the incidence of pancreatic cancer in this trial. Expand
n−3, n−6, and n−9 polyunsaturated fatty acids—which composition in parenteral nutrition decreases severity of acute hemorrhagic necrotizing pancreatitis in rats?
Parenteral nutrition high in n−3 PUFA seems to be superior to compositions of n−6 or n−9 PUFA in the treatment of acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis in rats. Expand
Effects of Celebrex and Zyflo on liver metastasis and lipidperoxidation in pancreatic cancer in Syrian hamsters
A combination of Celebrex and Zyflo might be a new concept to decrease tumour growth in liver metastases in advanced pancreatic cancer. Expand
