Fat intake and obesity are positively correlated with pancreatic cancer in humans. N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine (BOP) induces pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas limited to Syrian golden hamsters, other rodents not being susceptible. In the present study, we found markedly high levels of serum triglycerides (TGs) and total cholesterol (TC) in Syrian golden(More)
We have recently shown that the prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) receptor EP(3) plays an important role in suppression of colon cancer cell proliferation and that its deficiency enhances late stage colon carcinogenesis. Here we examined the effects of EP(3)-deficiency on two-stage skin carcinogenesis. 7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (50 microg/200 microl of(More)
Obesity and hyperlipidemia are known to increase colorectal tumor risk. We noticed that Min mice, featuring a defect in the adenomatous polyposis coli (Apc) gene, develop intestinal polyps along with high serum triglyceride (TG) levels up to 10-fold those observed in wild-type mice. In these mice, messenger RNA (mRNA) expression of lipoprotein lipase, which(More)
Suppression of N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine-induced pancreatic carcinogenesis in hamsters by pioglitazone, a ligand of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor g Fat intake and obesity are positively correlated with pancreatic cancer in humans. N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine (BOP) induces pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas limited to Syrian golden(More)
