Gastric Cancer Susceptibility Is Not Linked to Pro-and Anti-Inflammatory Cytokine Gene Polymorphisms in Whites: A Nationwide Multicenter Study in Spain
BACKGROUND AND AIMS:Recent studies have reported an association between cytokine gene polymorphisms and GC risk. However, results are inconsistent among studies from different geographic regions andExpand

Relevance of IL-1 and TNF gene polymorphisms on interleukin-1beta and tumor necrosis factor-alpha gastric mucosal production.
We aimed to evaluate the influence of Helicobacter pylori infection and IL-1/TNF gene polymorphisms on interleukin (IL)-1beta and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha gastric mucosal production.Expand

Relevance of GSTM1, GSTT1, and GSTP1 gene polymorphisms to gastric cancer susceptibility and phenotype.
Human glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are phase II metabolizing enzymes that play a key role in protecting against cancer by detoxifying numerous potentially cytotoxic/genotoxic compounds. TheExpand

Discovery of specific flavodoxin inhibitors as potential therapeutic agents against Helicobacter pylori infection.
Helicobacter pylori establishes life-long infections in the gastric mucosa of over 1 billion people worldwide. In many cases, without specific antimicrobial intervention, H. pylori infectedExpand

COX-2 inhibition in esophagitis, Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer.
There is extensive evidence that cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) plays a significant role in the process of carcinogenesis in different tumors. Although most of these evidences derive from studies inExpand

Effects of selective PGE2 receptor antagonists in esophageal adenocarcinoma cells derived from Barrett's esophagus.
Accumulating evidence suggests that COX-2-derived prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) plays an important role in esophageal adenocarcinogenesis. Recently, PGE(2) receptors (EP) have been shown to be involvedExpand

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor and Epidermal Growth Factor Play a Major Role in Human Colonic Fibroblast Repair Activities
Background and Aims: Ulceration is a common feature of inflammatory bowel diseases, where subepithelial cell growth is frequently necessary for resolution. In order to further understand the role ofExpand
