Aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase (AHH) was present in explant cultures of human prostate obtained from surgery of benign prostatic hyperplasia and was inducible by benz[a]anthracene (BA). The induction of AHH ranged from 14- to 150-fold when compared with control values and 10-fold variation of AHH inducibility among individuals was observed. Epithelial cells(More)
Felotaxel (SHR110008), currently under clinical investigation in phase I trial, is a new taxane with potent antitumor effects. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profiles of felotaxel in rats and the protein binding in plasma. Data were collated from several preclinical investigations, where the plasma pharmacokinetics, tissue(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the potential inhibitory and inductive effects of felotaxel on cytochrome P450 isozymes in vitro. The inhibitory effects of felotaxel on various CYP isozymes were determined in human liver microsomes. In addition, the ability of felotaxel to induce CYP enzymes in cultured human hepatocytes was evaluated. Results(More)
Mitogenic actions of estrogens are mediated by two distinct estrogen receptors (ERs), which are critical in the progression and therapeutic response of breast cancer. ER expression is a dynamic phenomenon that is regulated by numerous factors, including cytokines, in the tumor microenvironment. Recently, studies have shown that autocrine production of IL-4(More)
Vascular remodeling is an important complication of hypertension with oxidative stress-related profibrotic pathways involved. The transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) has been shown to be a potential target of vasoprotection, and has multiple roles in vascular remodeling. Acetyl-11-Keto-β-Boswellic Acid (AKBA) is one of the active principles of Boswellic(More)
In this study, the authors compared the effects of amlodipine (AML) on the bioavailability of cephalexin (LEX) and cefuroxime axetil (CXM). Twenty-four healthy men were randomized to 4 treatments according to a crossover design with a 14-day washout. After an overnight fast, they were administered orally LEX 500 mg alone, LEX 500 mg 2 hours after oral(More)
Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive brain tumor associated with a poor prognosis. Plant homeodomain finger protein 20 (PHF20) is highly expressed in primary human gliomas and its expression is associated with tumor grade. However, the molecular mechanism by which PHF20 regulates glioblastoma remains poorly understood. Genome wide gene expression(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Tenofovir dipivoxil fumarate (9-[(R)-2-[[bis (pivaloyloxymethoxy) phosphinoyl] methoxy] propyl] adenine fumarate) is a novel ester prodrug of tenofovir. It has been developed as an anti-hepatitis B virus clinical candidate. The purpose of this study was to determine the pharmacokinetic parameters of tenofovir dipivoxil fumarate(More)
Vascular remodeling is a common complication and pathological basis of hypertension. Transforming growth factor‑β1 (TGF‑β1)/small mothers against decapentaplegic 3 (Smad3) is considered a potential therapeutic target for vascular remodeling in hypertension. The present study aimed to demonstrate the antifibrotic effects of telmisartan and examined the(More)
Gastric ulcer is a major complication of gastrointestinal disease. This study focuses on the gastroprotection and potential mechanism of chebulagic acid (CA) in acute gastric ulceration induced by ethanol in rats. Specifically, in animal study, gastric ulceration was induced by ethanol, morphological features of gastric tissue were observed by ulcer score,(More)
