Osteosarcoma is the most frequent primary malignant bone tumor, notorious for its lung metastasis. Shikonin, an effective constituent extracted from Chinese medicinal herb, was demonstrated to induce necroptosis in some cancers. MTT assay was performed to detect cell survival rate in vitro. Flow cytometry was used to analyze cell cycle and cell death.(More)
Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most frequent primary malignant bone tumour. Alternol, a novel compound purified from microbial fermentation products exerts anti-tumour effects across several cancer types. The effect of alternol on human OS remains to be elucidated. We first evaluated the anti-tumour effect of alternol in several human OS cell lines in vitro and(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary malignant bone tumor. Cancer cells employ a host of mechanisms to develop resistance to adriamycin (ADM) or other chemotherapeutic drugs. Shikonin (SK), an active constituent extracted from a Chinese medicinal herb, has been shown to cooperate with ADM in the treatment of osteosarcoma and certain other types of cancer(More)
ErbB receptors have been intensely studied to understand their importance in cancer biology and as therapeutic targets, and many ErbB inhibitors are now used in the clinical setting. A large number of studies have been conducted to examine the expression of ErbB family members in bone and soft tissue sarcomas, including osteosarcomas, synovial sarcomas,(More)
