Regular use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and sulindac is associated with a decreased mortality from colorectal cancer. Sulindac causes regression of precancerous adenomatous polyps and inhibits the growth of cultured colon cell lines. Whereas induction of apoptotic cell death is thought to account for the growth(More)
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) including sulindac have shown potent chemopreventive and tumor regressive effects against colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. However, the mechanisms by which sulindac inhibits tumor cell growth are not completely understood. We previously reported that sulindac(More)
BACKGROUND Regular use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is associated with a decreased mortality from colorectal cancer (CRC). NSAIDs induce apoptotic cell death in colon cancer cells in vitro and inhibit growth of neoplastic colonic mucosa in vivo however, the biochemical mechanisms required for these growth inhibitory effects are not well(More)
