Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is an aggressive tumor with high incidence and mortality worldwide. Diallyl disulfide (DADS) is a natural organosulfur compound, isolated from garlic. In this study, MTT assay showed that DADS significantly reduced cell viability in a dose- and time-dependent manner in ESCC cells, with lower toxicity in normal liver(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric cancer (GC) is a common malignant disease and microRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to play important roles in GC tumorigenesis. As the clinical outcome of GC is closely correlated with the clinical stage at the time of diagnosis, early detection and prevention are crucial. This study was designed to evaluate the expression level of plasma(More)
Deoxycholic acid (DCA) promotes the development and progression of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) by inducing inflammation. Adiponectin is reported to have anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor effects. This study investigated the effects of two types of adiponectin, full-length adiponectin (f-Ad) and globular adiponectin (g-Ad), on DCA-induced inflammation,(More)
Diallyl disulfide (DADS) is a natural organosulfur compound isolated from garlic. DADS has various biological properties, including anticancer, antiangiogenic, and antioxidant effects. However, the anticancer mechanisms of DADS in human esophageal carcinoma have not been elucidated, especially in vivo. In this study, MTT assay showed that DADS significantly(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the inhibitory effects of dihydroartemisinin (DHA) on the primary tumor growth and metastasis of the human breast cancer cell line, MDA-MB-231, in vitro. The expression levels of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) were detected by immunocytochemistry in two cell lines (MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231). The(More)
Barrett’s esophagus (BE) is generally accepted as the only precursor to esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). Deoxycholic acid (DCA)-induced inflammation and apoptotic resistance play an important role in the carcinogenesis and progression from BE to EAC. Diallyl disulfide (DADS) is a garlic-derived natural organosulfur compound. This study investigated whether(More)
Interleukin-17A (IL-17A), a pro-inflammatory cytokine secreted primarily by Th17 cells, has been proved to be involved in the microenvironment of certain inflammation-related tumors. However, the role of IL-17A in cancer development has always been controversial. In this study, we investigated the effect of IL-17A on the regulation of esophageal(More)
Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is one of the most common malignancies in the world which is associated the increased prevalence of obesity. In the context of obesity, leptin can directly contribute to progression of EAC. Adiponectin inhibits leptin-induced oncogenic signaling in EAC cells. However, the exact molecular mechanisms linking obesity,(More)
