Native LDL may be a mitogenic stimulus of VSMC proliferation in lesions where endothelial disruption occurs. Recent studies have demonstrated that the mitogenic effects of LDL are accompanied by Erk1/2 activation via an unknown G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). In this article, we report that LDL translocated PKCbeta(II) and PKCtheta from cytosol to plasma(More)
Vorinostat (VOR) has been reported to enhance the cytotoxic effects of doxorubicin (DOX) with fewer side effects because of the lower DOX dosage in breast cancer cells. In this study, we investigated the novel mechanism underlying the synergistic cytotoxic effects of VOR and DOX co-treatment in cervical cancer cells HeLa, CaSki and SiHa cells. Co-treatment(More)
Genome-wide chemical genetic profiles in Saccharomyces cerevisiae since the budding yeast deletion library construction have been successfully used to reveal unknown mode-of-actions of drugs. Here, we introduce comparative approach to infer drug target proteins more accurately using two compendiums of chemical-genetic profiles from the budding yeast S.(More)
Uterine papillary serous carcinoma (UPSC) is an aggressive form of endometrial cancer characterized by a high recurrence rate and poor prognosis. We report a case of a 58-year-old post-menopausal woman with an abdominal wall metastasis in stage IA UPSC. After surgical staging, she did not receive additional adjuvant therapy. An egg sized palpable mass(More)
This report details a method using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) that allows one to determine the concentration of an atypical anticancer drug, enzalutamide, in rat plasma. Specifically, this method involves the addition of an acetonitrile and bicalutamide (internal standard) solution to plasma samples. Following centrifugation(More)
349 THE CORRELATION OF CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA 3 DETECTED BY CERVICAL PUNCH BIOPSIES WITH THE PATHOLOGIC RESULTS OF CONIZATION AND HYSTERECTOMY Ki-Won Kim, MD, Kyoung-Mi Kim, MD, Jung-Woo Park, MD, Hyun-Jae Jung, MD, Jee-Young Han, MD, Joon-Mee Kim, MD, Jee-Hyun Park, MD, Sung-Ook Hwang, MD, Woo-Young Lee, MD, Eunseop Song, MD Departments of(More)
Venous thromboembolism often occurs after major surgery and may occur as a consequence of underlying cancer. A 39-year-old woman presented to the emergency room with chief complaints of dyspnea and right chest pain. Chest computed tomography (CT) revealed pulmonary artery thromboembolism of the left lobe and a massive right pleural effusion. D-dimer level(More)
