Studies on chemoprevention of cancer are generating increasing interest. The anti-neoplastic effect of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) involves cyclooxygenase (COX)-dependent and COX-independent mechanisms. Evidence suggests that mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) may mediate apoptotic signaling induced by anti-neoplastic agents. While(More)
There is a growing interest in the health-promoting effects of natural substances obtained from plants. Although luteolin has been identified as a potential therapeutic and preventive agent for cancer because of its potent cancer cell-killing activity, the molecular mechanisms have not been well elucidated. This study provides evidence of an alternative(More)
AIMS Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) has been considered to be one of the most promising candidates in research on treatments for cancer, including renal cell carcinoma (RCC). However, many cells are resistant to TRAIL-induced apoptosis which limits the potential application of TRAIL in cancer therapy. Luteolin, a naturally(More)
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) exert anti-tumor action in a variety of cancer cells. However, several treatment side effects such as gastrointestinal injury, cardiovascular toxicity, and acute renal failure limit their clinical use. We found that indomethacin caused renal epithelial cell injury independently of cyclooxygenase inhibition.(More)
