PURPOSE We evaluated the role of inducible nitric oxide synthase and PPARγ as prognostic factors for bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Inducible nitric oxide synthase and PPARγ were evaluated by Western blot and immunohistochemistry in a mouse bladder cancer model of nonmuscle invasive and invasive MB49-I tumor cells, and in human bladder cancer(More)
Bladder cancer is the second cause of death for urological tumors in man. When the tumor is nonmuscle invasive, transurethral resection is curative. On the other hand, radical cystectomy is the treatment chosen for patients with invasive tumors, but still under treatment, these patients have high risk of dying, by the development of metastatic disease(More)
BACKGROUND Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) is the most effective treatment for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. However, a failure in the initial response or relapse within the first five years of treatment has been observed in 20% of patients. We have previously observed that in vivo administration of an inhibitor of nitric oxide improved the response to(More)
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the largest cause of premature death in human populations throughout the world. Circulating plasma lipid levels, specifically high levels of LDL or low levels of HDL, are predictive of susceptibility to CVD. The scavenger receptor class B member 1 (SCARB1) is the primary receptor for the selective uptake of HDL cholesterol by(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the effects of combined PPARg agonist with bacillus Calmette-Guérin in bladder cancer growth in vitro and in vivo, focusing on the tissue remodeling mechanisms induced by bacillus Calmette-Guérin. MATERIALS AND METHODS PPARs are a superfamily of nuclear receptors that are transcription factors activated by ligands. Activation of(More)
PURPOSE Bacillus Calmette-Guérin is the standard treatment for patients with nonmuscle invasive high histological grade bladder cancer. Previously we found that bacillus Calmette-Guérin induces murine bladder cancer MB49 cell death in vitro and in vivo, generating tissue remodeling, which involves the release of fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-2. MATERIALS(More)
BACKGROUND A key factor contributing to radio-resistance in conservative invasive bladder cancer (BCa) treatment is tumor hypoxia and a strategy to overcome it is to trigger the production of nitric oxide (NO). On the other hand, ionizing radiation (IR) applied to a primary tumor can induce immunogenic cell death which may set off a cytotoxic immune(More)
