Sulforaphane (SFN), a naturally occurring isothiocyanate, is an attractive agent due to its potent anticancer effects. SFN suppresses the proliferation of various cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. In this study, we report that SFN inhibited the proliferation of cultured murine osteosarcoma LM8 cells. Twenty micromolar SFN completely inhibited the growth of(More)
Third-generation bisphosphonates are known to inhibit bone resorption and also appear to exhibit direct anti-tumour activity. We previously reported that third-generation bisphosphonates such as zoledronic acid (ZOL) have a direct antitumour effect, and synergistically augment the effects of antitumor agents in osteosarcoma cells. There has been no report(More)
Sulforaphane (SFN), a naturally occurring member of the isothiocyanate family, is effective against various types of malignant tumor cells. We studied whether the combination of SFN and radiation would be more effective against osteosarcoma cells when compared to these treatments alone. LM8 murine osteosarcoma cells were(More)
Clinically obtainable concentrations of zoledronic acid (ZOL) inhibited the production of vascular endothelial growth factor and reduced the migration, adhesion, and invasiveness of osteosarcoma (OS) cells in vitro. The in vivo effects of ZOL were investigated by using a murine model of spontaneous lung metastasis. The higher dose of ZOL (80 microg/kg three(More)
Extraskeletal Ewing's sarcoma is a rare soft tissue tumor that is morphologically indistinguishable from Ewing's sarcoma of bone. We report a case of extraskeletal Ewing's sarcoma with several systemic problems. A 69-year-old man presented with a 5-month history of a rapidly enlarging mass in the right thigh. Because preoperative radiotherapy with sanazole(More)
Helicobacter pylori is a human pathogen that infects over 50% of the population worldwide. It is the most important etiologic agent of gastroduodenal ulcers and malignancies. Helicobacter pylori urease enzyme is considered the main factor for the organism's colonization in the gastroduodenal mucosa. Hens immunized with the purified urease produce a highly(More)
Thermally induced human eccrine sweat was collected both by simple scraping (SS) and by a polyethylene sweat collector that covered the Vaseline-coated skin of the back to minimize epidermal contamination (CS, clean sweat). Using synthetic chromogenic Kabi S-series substrates, we demonstrated a variety of proteases in both SS and CS, the former being higher(More)
UNLABELLED Antitumour effects of third-generation bisphosphonates (BPs), such as zoledronic acid (ZOL), and the combined effects of ZOL with other anticancer agents against osteosarcoma cells have been reported previously. The aim of this study was to identify further combined antitumour effects using BPs and radiation in osteosarcoma cell lines. (More)
Third generation bisphosphonates (BPs), including YM175 and YM529, are known to inhibit bone resorption. The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-tumor effects of these drugs on murine osteosarcoma cell lines, in terms of proliferation and apoptosis. We found that both YM175 and YM529 strongly inhibited the in vitro proliferation and induced apoptosis(More)
