Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are chemopreventive for colorectal cancer. This effect is due in part to their ability to inhibit the inducible isoform of cyclooxygenase (COX-2). However, the cellular expression and role of COX-2 in the premalignant stages of colorectal tumourigenesis is unclear. COX-2 expression was assessed in 35 human colorectal(More)
Cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 is a key molecular target of colon cancer prevention. However, the mechanisms by which COX-2 inhibitors confer protective effects against tumour development are not completely understood. The aim of this study was to elucidate the effects of NS-398 in the 1,2-dimethylhydrazine (DMH) mouse model with respect to alteration in the(More)
UNLABELLED The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs has proved of great interest in the prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer, although their precise mechanisms of action remain unclear. Overexpression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and subsequent prostaglandin production promote metastasis and have been shown to increase cell motility in(More)
BACKGROUND Fascin is overexpressed in many cancers, including colorectal, but its role in the malignant transformation of benign colorectal adenomas is unclear. METHODS Immunohistochemical analysis of fascin expression was carried out in resected human colorectal adenoma specimens. The effects of forced overexpression of fascin on adenoma cell motility(More)
Reversible logic has become one of the most promising research areas in the past few decades and has found its applications in several technologies; such as low power CMOS, nanotechnology and optical computing. The main purposes of designing reversible logic are to decrease quantum cost, depth of the circuits and the number of garbage outputs. The purpose(More)
In recent years, reversible logic circuits are increasingly used in power minimization and having applications such as low power CMOS design, optical information processing, DNA computing, bioinformatics, quantum computing and nanotechnology. Under ideal conditions, reversible logic gates produce zero power dissipation. The main motivation behind the study(More)
Easy and successful dietary management of persistent diarrhoea has been a long desired goal. Finding an efficient diet which is economically feasible, and easy to prepare in poor homes of developing countries, has not been easy. A dietary algorithm was followed to test the clinical efficacy of an inexpensive and easy to prepare diet made up with rice(More)
