Costunolide, a natural sesquiterpene compound, has been known having cytotoxic and chemopreventive effects on various human cancer cells. In the present study, we examined the effects of costunolide on telomerase activity and on the components of telomerase in MCF-7 (wild-type p53) and MDA-MB-231 (mutant p53) cells. We found that costunolide inhibited the(More)
Tc-99m MIBI scintimammography (SMM) is known to be a useful diagnostic tool for primary breast cancer. We conducted this study to establish optimal visual grades for the detection of primary breast cancer and to investigate whether the quantitative indices of double phase SMM could provide incremental diagnostic value additive to visual analysis. Methods.(More)
PURPOSE To determine and predict P-glycoprotein (Pgp) and multidrug-resistance-related protein (MRP) expression in untreated breast cancer patients by visual and quantitative indices of double-phase (99m)Tc MIBI scintimammography (DSMM). PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-two patients with untreated breast cancer received DSMM. Pgp and MRP expression was(More)
UNLABELLED Tc-99m MIBI scintimammography (SMM) is known to be a useful diagnostic tool for primary breast cancer. We conducted this study to compare the quantitative and visual analysis for detection of primary breast cancer and also investigated the incremental role of quantitative index of SMM. METHODS 520 highly suspected breast cancer patients(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the diagnostic performances of visual and quantitative analyses of double-phase Tc-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) scintimammography (SMM) in patients with ultrasonographically indeterminate findings. SMM (early: 10min; delayed: 3h) was performed on 78 patients (malignant 66, benign 12). For visual analysis, the(More)
UNLABELLED To compare the diagnostic performances of visual and quantitative indices of double phase Tc-99m Tetrofosmin scintimammography (TF-SMM) for the detection of breast cancer. METHODS Double phase TF-SMM (early, 10 min; delayed, 3h) were performed after injection of 925 MBq of Tc-99m Tetrofosmin in 75 highly suspected breast cancer patients(More)
