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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND Chondrosarcoma arising from the sternum is extremely rare and is often untreatable. Removal of the sternum for malignant tumor results in large defects in bone and soft tissue, causing deformity and paradoxical movement of the chest wall and making subsequent repair of the thorax very important. We report a very rare patient with a chondrosarcoma(More)
BACKGROUND Synovial sarcoma is an uncommon tumor and remains a disease with poor prognosis. Although several prognostic factors have been previously reported, prognostic factors associated with synovial sarcoma are conflicting. This study was undertaken to evaluate our institutional clinical outcomes and to determine prognostic factors for synovial sarcoma.(More)
Zoledronic acid (ZOL), a third-generation bisphosphonate, inhibits bone resorption, as well as exhibiting direct antitumor activity. To date, however, the combined effects of ZOL and ionizing radiation (IR) have not been assessed in patients with soft tissue sarcoma. We have, therefore, assessed the combined effects of ZOL and IR in fibrosarcoma cells.(More)
Chondromyxoid fibroma (CMF) is a benign bone tumor. However, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish this tumor from chondrosarcoma. We report a rare case arising from the proximal fibula, presenting multimodality imaging features. An 18-year-old man presented with a 2-year history of gradually increasing pain and swelling in his left knee. Radiograph(More)
Blockade of the ERK pathway has antitumor effects against malignant tumor cells. In this study, we investigated the antitumor activity of JTP-70902, a novel specific MEK inhibitor, against human fibrosarcoma cells in which the ERK pathway is constitutively activated. JTP-70902 was synthesized at Japan Tabacco. Human fibrosarcoma HT1080 cells were cultured.(More)
