Selected eicosanoids increase the proliferation rate of human colon carcinoma cell lines and mouse colonocytes in vivo.
Eicosanoids have been implicated in colon carcinogenesis, but their role remains unclear. The levels of PGE2 are elevated in colon cancer tissues and in blood draining colon tumors. The effect ofExpand

The effect of lithocholic acid on proliferation and apoptosis during the early stages of colon carcinogenesis: differential effect on apoptosis in the presence of a colon carcinogen.
Lithocholic acid (LCA) is implicated in human and experimental animal carcinogenesis. Its effect on apoptosis and proliferation of the colonic epithelium was studied in a 1,2-dimethylhydrazineExpand

Staurosporine inhibits the proliferation, alters the cell cycle distribution and induces apoptosis in HT-29 human colon adenocarcinoma cells.
Staurosporine (ST), a potent inhibitor of protein kinase C (PKC), was evaluated for its effect on the proliferation of HT-29 colon adenocarcinoma cells; PKC is associated with increased colon cellExpand

Bcl-2 expression as an apoptotic index in non small cell lung carcinomas.
To evaluate the bcl-2 protein expression in non small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC) as an index of apoptosis of these tumors, in fine needle aspiration biopsies (FNABs) of the lung, we studiedExpand

The novel phenylester anticancer compounds: Study of a derivative of aspirin (phoshoaspirin).
We have synthesized a series of novel phenylester compounds and present our assessment of such a derivative of aspirin, 3-((diethoxyphosphoryloxy)methyl)phenyl 2-acetoxybenzoate, provisionally namedExpand

Nuclear grading in invasive ductal breast carcinomas.
Nuclear grade (NG) was studied in cytologic material obtained from 120 fine-needle aspiration biopsies of breast lesions and compared with the NG observed in the nuclear grade of surgical biopsies ofExpand
