In this study, a series of novel N-(piperidine-4-yl)benzamide derivatives was designed, synthesized, and evaluated for antitumor activity. Some compounds were found to have potent antitumor activity. In particular, compound 47 showed the most potent biological activity against HepG2 cells, with an IC50 value of 0.25 μm. Western blot analysis demonstrated(More)
To identify novel therapeutic agents to treat cancer, we synthesized a series of diaryl ether derivatives. Structure-activity relationship studies revealed that the presence of a chlorine or hydroxyl at the para-position on the phenyl ring (5h or 5k) significantly enhanced antitumor activity. Compound 5h had stronger growth inhibitory activity in HepG2,(More)
Design, synthesis and biological evaluation of B-region, known to be a dipolar interacting pharmacophore, modified diarylalkyl amide analogues for novel TRPV1 (transient receptor potential channel, vanilloid subfamily member 1) antagonists was described. A variety of moieties including guanidines, heterocyclic rings, cinnamides, and α-substituted acetamides(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe effects of acupuncture at Neiguan (PC 6) on function of sinoatrial node, so as to provide experimental basis for clinical application of Neiguan (PC 6) to treatment of heart diseases. METHODS Fifty cases of heart diseases were randomly divided into 2 groups, a no-blocking group (n = 35) and a blocking group (n = 15). In the(More)
Ceramide (CE)-based combination therapy (CE combination) as a novel therapeutic strategy has attracted great attention in the field of anti-cancer therapy. The principal purposes of this study were to investigate the synergistic effect of CE in combination with docetaxel (DTX) (CE + DTX) and to explore the synergy mechanisms of CE + DTX. The(More)
