Here we demonstrated that SKI2162, a small-molecule inhibitor of the TGF-β type I receptor (ALK5), prevented radiation-induced fibrosis (RIF) in mice. SKI2162 inhibited phosphorylation of Smad and induction of RIF-related genes in vitro. In RIF a mouse model, SKI2162 reduced late skin reactions and leg-contracture without jeopardizing the acute skin(More)
Radiation-induced fibrosis (RIF) is one of the most common late complications of radiation therapy. We found that α-lipoic acid (α-LA) effectively prevents RIF. In RIF a mouse model, leg contracture assay was used to test the in vivo efficacy of α-LA. α-LA suppressed the expression of pro-fibrotic genes after irradiation, both in vivo and in vitro, and(More)
Radiation-induced oral mucositis is probably the most common toxicity for head and neck cancer patients. This adverse effect potentially leads to various lesions such as erythema, ulcerations, pain, opportunistic infections, and weight loss. Although there are many experimental studies and clinical trials related to novel therapies for radiation-induced(More)
