Tumor micro-environment is a critical factor in the development of cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the inflammatory cytokines secreted by tumor-associated dendritic cells (TADCs) that contribute to enhanced migration, invasion, and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in colon cancer. The administration of recombinant human chemokine(More)
Phthalates are used as plasticizers in the manufacture of flexible vinyl, which is used in food contact applications. Phthalates have been demonstrated to have an adverse impact on human health, particularly in terms of cancer development. In the present study, we showed for the first time that benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP) potentiates the effect of(More)
Development of an efficient treatment for triple-negative breast cancer is an urgent issues. Compounds from plant extracts are a potential source of novel cancer treatment. Isolinderalactone, a kind of sesquiterpenoids compound, was purified from the root of Lindera strychnifolia and Neolitsea daibuensis and shows anti-inflammatory and anticancer capacity.(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study investigated the effects of ovarian hormone depletion and estrogen administration on ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-induced bladder damage in female rabbits. METHODS Female New Zealand white rabbits were divided into five groups. A sham surgical procedure was performed on rabbits in group 1. In group 2, both vesical arteries were(More)
Recent studies indicate that a high level of nesfatin-1/Nucleobindin-2 (NUCB-2) is associated with poor outcome and promotes cell migration in breast cancer and prostate cancer. However, the role of NUCB2 is not well known in colon cancer. In this study, NUCB-2 level in colon cancer tissue was higher than that in non-tumor tissue. Suppression of NUCB-2 in a(More)
