BACKGROUND Colorectal cancer is the third most common and the third most lethal cancer in both men and women in developed countries. About 75% of cases are first diagnosed when the disease is classified as localized or regional, undergo potentially curative treatment and enter a post-treatment surveillance program. Although such programs drain significant(More)
Chrysin and 7-hydroxy flavone were prepared by Baker–Venkatraman rearrangement followed by esterification at 7th position and replacement of ester with acetamide linking to different heterocyclic moieties synthesized 13a–g and 14a–g series of flavones analogues. These were screened against COX-2 and COX-1 enzymes for inhibition by in vitro assay and COX-2(More)
Uracil derivatives bearing substituted or unsubstituted vinyl groups at position C6 and alkyl- or arylthio groups at position C5 were synthesized and tested in vitro for antiviral and antiproliferative activity. None of the compounds were active against HIV-1. However, some of them inhibited the proliferation of leukemia, lymphoma and solid tumor-derived(More)
A series of novel 3,6-disubstituted 1,2,4-triazolo[3,4-b][1,3,4] thiadiazole derivatives was prepared and tested to evaluate their antimycotic and antibacterial activities. Anti-HIV-1 activity has also been investigated. Among the test compounds, derivatives 10a-14a and 16c showed anti-HIV-1 activity at concentrations slightly below those cytotoxic.(More)
There have been few trials comparing the efficacy of determinations of cholesterol, fibronectin and triglycerides for diagnosis of malignant ascites. In this study we measured these in 200 ascitic fluids from 93 cirrhotic patients (Group A), 47 hepatocellular-carcinoma patients (Group B), 60 extra-hepatic tumour patients (Group C), 44 of them with malignant(More)
Lee's histochemical method was used to assess hormonal receptors in 1,005 patients with breast cancer. Patients were from 8 oncological departments in northern Italy. The group was subdivided into four subgroups in relation to menopausal status and presence or absence of axillary node metastasis. Overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) were(More)
