PURPOSE Zoledronic acid is being increasingly recognized for its antitumor properties, but the underlying functions are not well understood. In this study, we hypothesized that zoledronic acid inhibits ovarian cancer angiogenesis preventing Rac1 activation. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The biologic effects of zoledronic acid were examined using a series of in(More)
Exosomes have emerged as important mediators of diverse biological functions including tumor suppression, tumor progression, invasion, immune escape and cell-to-cell communication, through the release of molecules such as mRNAs, miRNAs, and proteins. Here, we identified differentially expressed exosomal miRNAs between normal epithelial ovarian cell line and(More)
Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive type of breast cancer characterized by the absence of defined molecular targets, including estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) and is associated with high rates of relapse and distant metastasis despite surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy. The(More)
Maternal smoking during pregnancy is associated with low birth weight, increased risk of stillbirth, conduct disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and neurocognitive deficits. Ventral tegmental area dopamine (DA) neurons in the mesocorticolimbic pathway were suggested to play a critical role in these pathological mechanisms induced by nicotine.(More)

Author manuscripts have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication but have not yet been edited. The authors declare no competing financial interests. Ovarian cancer (OC) is the most common cause of death from gynecological malignancy. Although current anti-angiogenic therapies are showing promise in OC, they display limited efficacy and resistance.(More)
Bacterial production of beta-lactamases, which hydrolyze beta-lactam type antibiotics, is a common antibiotic resistance mechanism. Antibiotic resistance is a high priority intervention area and one strategy to overcome resistance is to administer antibiotics with beta-lactamase inhibitors in the treatment of infectious diseases. Unfortunately,(More)
