UNLABELLED Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is characterized by frequent recurrence, even after curative treatment. Vitamin K2, which has been reported to reduce HCC development, may be effective in preventing HCC recurrence. Patients who underwent curative ablation or resection of HCC were randomly assigned to receive placebo, 45 mg/day, or 90 mg/day vitamin(More)
E7070 (N-(3-Chloro-7-indolyl)-1,4-benzenedisulphonamide) was selected from our sulphonamide compound collections via antitumour screening and flow cytometric analysis. Following treatment with E7070, the cell cycle progression of P388 murine leukaemia cells was disturbed in the G1 phase. The cell-killing effect on human colon cancer HCT116 cells was found(More)
E7010 (N-[2-[(4-hydroxyphenyl)amino]-3-pyridinyl]-4-methoxybenzenesulfonami de), an orally active sulfonamide antitumor agent that is currently in a Phase I clinical trial, showed rather consistent growth-inhibitory activities against a panel of 26 human tumor cell lines (IC50 = 0.06-0.8 microg/ml), in contrast to vincristine (VCR; IC50 = 0.0002-0.04(More)
The laser has been shown to vaporize arterial atheromatous plaque, but little information is available about its effect on various vascular materials. This study attempts to determine a safe margin for laser graft thrombectomy. An 18 watt argon laser with a 2 mm metal-encased sapphire tip fiberoptic system was used. Specimens such as autogenous vein,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Orthotopic transplantation of human colon tumors was a useful method for producing hepatic metastasis in mice. In many cases, however, it took about 3 months for evaluation. We examined an in vivo model of hepatic metastasis for only 4 weeks by conducting orthotopic transplantation of murine Colon 38 tumor using intact tissue in(More)
We have discovered a novel topoisomerase II (topo II) poison, ER-37328 (12,13-dihydro-5-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-4H-benzo[c]pyrimido[5,6,1-jk]carbazole-4,6,10(5H,11H)-trione hydrochloride), which shows potent tumor regression activity against Colon 38 cancer inoculated s.c. Here, we describe studies on the cell-killing activity against a panel of human(More)
DNA topoisomerase II has been shown to be an important therapeutic target in cancer chemotherapy. Here, we describe studies on the antitumor activity of a novel topoisomerase II inhibitor, ER-37328 [12,13-dihydro-5-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-4H-benzo[c]pyrimido[5,6,1- jk]carbazole-4,6,10(5H,11H)-trione hydrochloride]. ER-37328 inhibited topoisomerase II(More)
The role of immunological effects in the antitumor activity of sporamycin activity of sporamycin was studied mainly using the mouse syngeneic tumor, Meth-A. Sporamycin inhibited the growth of the Meth-A tumor and Balb/c mice, and 12 out of 19 mice were cured. The 12 survivors did not show any growth of reinoculated Meth-A cells. Enzymes-histochemical(More)
Described herein is the discovery of a novel series of antitumor sulfonamides targeting G1 phase of the cell cycle. Cell cycle control in G1 phase has attracted considerable attention in recent cancer research, because many of the important proteins involved in G1 progression or G1/S transition have been found to play a crucial role in proliferation,(More)
