Tanshinone IIA (Tan-IIA) was isolated from Salviae Miltiorrhizae Radix. Our previous studies showed that Tan-IIA induced apoptosis in human colon cancer colo 205 cells, but the molecular mechanisms of the effect of Tan-IIA on human colon cancer were not clearly elucidated. The protein expression of ErbB-2 was up-regulated and activated in human and(More)
Reprint requests to: Dr. Chi-Ming Lee Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Taipei Medical University Hospital. No. 252, Wu Hsing Street, Taipei 110, Taiwan, R.O.C. Uterine leiomyomas (f ibroids) are the most common benign neoplasm in women of childbearing age. Magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound ablation (MRgFUS) has been used worldwide to treat(More)
Tanshinone IIA (C19H18O3) was extracted from danshen (Salviae miltiorrhizae radix). It has cytotoxic properties and induces apoptosis in many human cancer cells. The molecular mechanisms are poorly understood, therefore, in the present study, we aimed to elucidate its anticancer activity on human breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cells. The cytotoxic effects of(More)
Malignant tumors are the leading cause of death in Taiwan; among these, colon cancer ranks third as a cause of cancer-related death. Sann-Joong-Kuey-Jian-Tang (SJKJT), a traditional Chinese medicinal prescription, has been used to treat lymph node diseases and infectious lesions, and exhibits cytotoxic activity in many cancer cell lines. Our previous(More)
Curcumin (diferuloylmethane), which is obtained from turmeric, the rhizome of Curcuma longa (L.), inhibits many human cancer cells. However, the molecular mechanisms responsible for curcumin-induced endoplasmic reticulum stress in human hepatic cellular carcinoma J5 cells, are not yet clearly understood. J5 cells were treated with various concentrations of(More)
OBJECTIVE To show the flexibility in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of seminal vesicle (SV) and intra-abdominal segment of vas deferens for the patients with congenital absence of the vas deferens (CAVD), including congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD) and congenital unilateral absence of vas deferens (CUAVD). METHODS Fourteen(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare cancer detection rates of sonographically suspicious lesion-directed biopsies and random biopsies through transverse examination of prostate halves in 518 patients over 5 years. METHODS From 1998 to 2002, 518 patients were referred for prostate biopsies because of either elevated prostate-specific antigen(More)
Recently, the resource sharing systems apply the P2P technique to provide scalable multi-attribute range queries. However, due to the heterogeneity of resources and the variation of sharing policies in different providers, current P2P-based resource discovery systems may suffer the load imbalance problem in a large scale distributed system. In this paper,(More)
Sann-Joong-Kuey-Jian-Tang (SJKJT), a traditional Chinese medicine, has been prescribed as complementary medication for colon cancer in Taiwan. However, its molecular mechanisms are not yet understood. In the present study, we investigated the effects of SJKJT on human colon cancer colo 205 cells in vitro. The cytotoxicity of SJKJT in colo 205 cells was(More)
Sann-Joong-Kuey-Jian-Tang (SJKJT), a traditional Chinese medicine prescription, has been used to treat lymph node diseases and tumors. However, the molecular mechanisms of SJKJT in human colon cancer in vivo and in vitro have not been clearly elucidated. In the present study, we investigated the molecular mechanisms of SJKJT in human colon cancer colo 205(More)
