Digestive tract malignancies, including oral, pharyngeal, esophageal, gastric, and colorectal cancers, are among the top 10 most common cancers worldwide. In spite of using various treatment modalities, cancer patients still suffer from recurrence and metastasis of malignant cells. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are undifferentiated and highly proliferative(More)
Chemotherapy is one of the main strategies for reducing the rate of cancer progression or, in some cases, curing the tumour. Since a great number of chemotherapeutic agents are cytotoxic compounds, i. e. similarly affect normal and neoplastic cells, application of antitumour drugs is preferred in cancer management and therapy. In this study, the(More)
Stem cells (SCs) are known as undifferentiated cells with self-renewal and differentiation capacities. Regeneration is a phenomenon that occurs in a limited number of animals after injury, during which blastema tissue is formed. It has been hypothesized that upon injury, the dedifferentiation of surrounding tissues leads into the appearance of cells with SC(More)
Cell Stemness can be achieved by various reprogramming techniques namely, somatic cell nuclear transfer, cell fusion, cell extracts, and introduction of transcription factors from which induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are obtained. iPSCs are valuable cell sources for drug screening and human disease modeling. Alternatives to virus-based introduction(More)
Despite widespread application of cisplatin in treatment of transitional cell carcinomas, its efficiency is far from satisfactory due to acquired drug resistance. The present study was carried out to estimate the effects of conferone, a sesquiterpene-coumarin isolated from Ferula badrakema, on increasing cisplatin cytotoxicity in 5637 cells. In order to(More)
