In this paper the chemopreventive effect of peroral antidiabetic metformin in mammary carcinogenesis in female Sprague-Dawley rats was evaluated. Mammary carcinogenesis was induced by N-methyl-N-nitrosourea (NMU) administered in two intraperitoneal doses each per 50 mg/kg b.w. between 43.-55. postnatal days. Metformin was administered in drinking water (at(More)
BACKGROUNDS Statins (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors) have proven therapeutic and preventive effects on cardiovascular diseases. Preclinical evidence demonstrates tumor-suppressive effects of statins in several human neoplasias, including breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, antineoplastic effects of simvastatin(More)
The results of experimental studies have indicated the pleiotropic effects of statins in organism, e.g. the influence on cell cycle, apoptosis or angiogenesis. In this study, the effects of simvastatin on selected parameters of apoptosis and proliferation in chemocarcinogen-induced mammary tumorigenesis in female rats were determined. Simvastatin was(More)
Previous studies in the field of cancer research have suggested a possible role for statins in the reduction of risk in certain malignancies. The purpose of these studies was to examine the chemopreventive effects of pravastatin alone and in combination with pineal hormone melatonin in the N-methyl-N-nitrosourea-induced mammary carcinogenesis model.(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of prolonged melatonin administration on chosen metabolic and hormonal variables in male and female Sprague-Dawley rats. Melatonin was administered in tap water (4 microg/ml) daily from the 6th month of age. Rats were fed a standard type of diet ad libitum and were kept in a light regimen L:D--12:12h. The(More)
The present experiment aims to evaluate tumor suppressive effects of a selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) celecoxib (Celebrex, Pfizer) administered alone and in combination with melatonin in the prevention of N-methyl-N-nitrosourea (NMU)-induced mammary carcinogenesis in Sprague-Dawley female rats. Celecoxib was administered daily at a(More)
The aim of this paper was to test lower, safe bexarotene dose administered alone and in combination with melatonin to improve its efficacy. Mammary carcinogenesis was induced by N-methyl-N-nitrosourea in female Sprague-Dawley rats, administered in two doses intraperitoneally between 42.-54. postnatal days and chemoprevention was initiated 7 days prior to(More)
Data available from in-vitro and in-vivo studies suggest oncostatic properties of peroral antidiabetics, thiazolidinediones, in many types of cancer. This study is the first report on the chemopreventive effect of pioglitazone in mammary carcinogenesis in rats. Mammary carcinogenesis was induced by N-methyl-N-nitrosourea administered in two intraperitoneal(More)
The neurohormone melatonin is primarily involved in the regulation of circadian rhythms, but also acts as an antioxidant and anticarcinogenic agent, especially in breast cancer. Resveratrol (3,5,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is a widely known polyphenolic agent from red wine, which has been shown to exert antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic(More)
Peroral antidiabetics from thiazolidinedione (glitazone) group showed oncostatic effects in preclinical models. This study evaluated chemopreventive effects of rosiglitazone in N-methyl-N-nitrosourea-induced mammary carcinogenesis in rats. N-methyl-N-nitrosourea was administered in two intraperitoneal doses each per 50 mg/kg b.w. between 40th and 51st(More)
