Acquisition of lymph node, but not distant metastatic potentials, by the overexpression of CXCR4 in human oral squamous cell carcinoma
Recently, it has been suggested that chemokine/receptor interactions determine the destination of the invasive tumor cells in several types of cancer. It has also been proposed that the stromalExpand

An adenoid squamous carcinoma-forming cell line established from an oral keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma expressing carcinoembryonic antigen.
A neoplastic epithelial cell line, TYS, was isolated from a well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma expressing carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) that arose in human oral mucosa. Expressions of CEAExpand

Cepharanthin-enhanced radiosensitivity through the inhibition of radiation-induced nuclear factor-kappaB activity in human oral squamous cell carcinoma cells.
We have already demonstrated that human head and neck cancer cells have significantly enhanced levels of transcription factor nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB activity compared to their normalExpand

Characteristics of antitumour activity of cepharanthin against a human adenosquamous cell carcinoma cell line.
Cepharanthin is one of the biscoclaurine alkaloids widely used for treatment of many acute and chronic diseases; snakebite, bronchial asthma, alopecia areata, leukopenia during radiation therapy orExpand

Enhanced IkappaB kinase activity is responsible for the augmented activity of NF-kappaB in human head and neck carcinoma cells.
The nuclear transcription factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) plays an important role in the development and progression of cancers. However, the mechanism by which cancer cells in the head and neck regionExpand

Overexpression of p27(Kip1) induces growth arrest and apoptosis in an oral cancer cell line.
p27(Kip1) is a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor which regulates progression of cells from G1 into S phase in a cell cycle. Loss of p27(Kip1) has been associated with disease progression and anExpand

Identification of EGF as an angiogenic factor present in conditioned medium from human salivary gland adenocarcinoma cell clones with varying degrees of metastatic potential.
We have previously shown that conditioned medium (CM) from metastasizing human salivary gland adenocarcinoma cell clones contains factor(s) that stimulate the proliferation and migration of bovineExpand

Characteristics of antitumor activity of 3,4-dihydro-6-[4-(3,4-dimethoxybenzoyl)-1-piperazinyl]- 2(1H)-quinolinone (vesnarinone) against a human adenoid squamous carcinoma-forming cell line grown in
The tumors produced by transplantation into nude mice of human adenoid squamous carcinoma-forming cell line TYS, presumably derived from a minor salivary gland, were treated with aExpand

Immunochemoradiotherapy for patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma: augmentation of OK-432-induced helper T cell 1 response by 5-FU and X-ray irradiation.
Eighty-one patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) received oral fluoropyrimidine UFT and radiotherapy (RT) with or without an immunotherapeutic agent OK-432. Both overall survival andExpand

Asymmetric epoxidation of alpha-olefins having neighboring sugar chiral templates and alternating copolymerization with dicarboxylic anhydrides.
Sugar-substituted epoxides 5-8 were synthesized by asymmetric epoxidation (in CH(2)Cl(2)/water) of alpha-olefins having neighboring sugars (1-4) by use of an achiral oxidant (MCPBA), in which theExpand
