Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is one of the most common malignancies worldwide. Gemcitabine is currently the standard first-line chemotherapeutic agent for pancreatic cancer. However, gemcitabine can induce activation of Akt and nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), which is associated with its chemoresistance. It has been reported that gemcitabine combination therapies(More)
BACKGROUND Emodin has been showed to induce apoptosis of pancreatic cancer cells and inhibit tumor growth in our previous studies. This study was designed to investigate whether emodin could inhibit the angiogenesis of pancreatic cancer tissues and its mechanism. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDING In accordance with our previous study, emodin inhibited(More)
Evodiamine has therapeutic potential against cancers. This study was designed to investigate whether combination therapy with gemcitabine and evodiamine enhanced antitumor efficacy in pancreatic cancer. In vitro application of the combination therapy triggered significantly higher frequency of pancreatic cancer cells apoptosis, inhibited the activities of(More)
XIAP and NF-κB play an important role in chemotherapy resistance in pancreatic cancer. The purpose of this study was to explore the role of XIAP and NF-κB in potentiating the antitumor effect of gemcitabine by emodin in pancreatic cancer. SW1990 cells were treated by sodium chloride, gemcitabine, emodin or their combination (gemcitabine plus emodin).(More)
Gemcitabine resistance is a common problem of pancreatic cancer chemotherapy, and how to reverse it plays an important role in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. This study investigated the effect of emodin on the gemcitabine-resistant pancreatic cancer cell line SW1990/Gem, and explored the potential mechanism of its action. SW1990/Gem was obtained by(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphorrhoea is a rare complication of abdominal surgery. However, there have been a few reports of lymphorrhoea following radical gastrectomy. Here, we retrospectively review the clinical analysis and treatment of lymphorrhoea based on our experiences. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed a total of 1596 patients who underwent surgery for(More)
