Sonodynamic therapy of cancer using novel sonosensitizers.
Sonodynamic therapy (SDT) of cancer is based on preferential uptake and/or retention of a sonosensitizing drug (sonosensitizer) in tumor tissues and subsequent activation of the drug by ultrasoundExpand

Claudin-1 protein is a major factor involved in the tumorigenesis of colorectal cancer.
BACKGROUND The molecular and morphological alterations of the tight junctions in colorectal cancer (CRC) are still poorly understood. The possible involvement of claudin-1 (CL-1), one of the majorExpand

Sonodynamic therapy of cancer using a novel porphyrin derivative, DCPH‐P‐Na(I), which is devoid of photosensitivity
To improve the efficacy of sonodynamic therapy of cancer using photosensitizers, we developed a novel porphyrin derivative designated DCPH‐P‐Na(I) and investigated its photochemical characteristicsExpand

Expression of IGF-1 and IGF-1R and their relation to clinicopathological factors in colorectal cancer.
BACKGROUND Expression of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and IGF-1 receptor (IGF-1R) has been shown to increase in colorectal cancer. We examined the correlation between expression of IGF-1 andExpand

Expression of monocarboxylate transporter (MCT)-4 in colorectal cancer and its role: MCT4 contributes to the growth of colorectal cancer with vascular endothelial growth factor.
BACKGROUND In tumor cells, monocarboxylate transporter (MCT)-4 regulates the excretion of lactate produced by glycolysis from the cell. MCT4 has also been reported to be involved in tumor growth andExpand
