Effects of dexamethasone on the growth and epidermal growth factor receptor expression of the OVCA 433 ovarian cancer cells.

We studied the correlation between dexamethasone (Dex) induced growth effects and modulation of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression in OVCA 433 ovarian cancer cells. These cells express specific high and low affinity 125I-EGF binding sites and are growth stimulated by EGF. Dex exhibits mitoinhibitory effects by recruiting OVCA 433 cells in… CONTINUE READING
