The effects of intragastric gavage administration of docosahexaenoic acid (DNA) , a major component of fish oil, on azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon carcinogenesis in rats was investigated. Male F344 rats were treated with 15 mg/kg body wt of AOM once a week, for two weeks. The animals were given either 1 ml of DHA or water intragastrically 5 times a week,(More)
The effects of nimesulide, a selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) on azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon carcinogenesis were investigated in mice. AOM at a dose of 10 mg/kg body wt was administered to male ICR mice once a week for 6 weeks. The animals were fed on AIN-76A powder diet containing nimesulide at doses of 200 or 400 p.p.m., starting the(More)
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) suppress colon carcinogenesis in man and experimental animals. However, conventional NSAIDs inhibit both cyclooxygenase (COX) isoforms, COX-1 and COX-2, and cause gastrointestinal side-effects. Nimesulide, a selective inhibitor of COX-2, is much less ulcerogenic. We, therefore, examined its influence on the(More)
We investigated the effects of a new antiulcer agent, SWR-215 ([[(1,2-dihydro-2-oxo-4-quinolinyl)methyl]thio]-N-[[[4-(1-piperidinyl methyl)-2-pyridinyl]oxy]-Z-2-butenyl]acetamide), on histamine H2-receptors, gastric acid secretion and various acute experimental gastric lesions. SWR-215 showed unsurmountable histamine H2-antagonism on isolated guinea-pig(More)
The antagonism of histamine H2-receptor by SWR-104SA (1'-bromo-N-[3-[3-(1-piperidinylmethyl) phenoxy] propyl]-spiro [1,3-dioxolane-2,9'-pentacyclo-[,5)0.(3,8) 0.(4,7)]nonane]-4'-carboxamide monooxalate) was estimated using the isolated guinea-pig atrium and gastric acid secretion in rats. The concentration-response curves for the positive(More)
