BACKGROUND Cervical cancer is the seventh most common malignancy in both genders combined and the third most common cancer in women. Despite significant progress in treatments, cervical cancer is not completely curable. Therefore, further research is necessary in this area. Animal models are one of the most practical tools in the field of cancer research. The present study aimed to characterize the growth behavior and surface markers of HeLa cells after heterotopic and systemic inoculation to… Expand
Effects of Curcumin on Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Expression on Rattus norvegicus Cervical Cancer Xenograft Model
VEGF expression in Rattus norvegicus xenograft model of cervical cancer was suppressed by giving Curcumin 1000 mg/kgBB orally. Expand
Nitric oxide signaling regulates tumor-induced intussusceptive-like angiogenesis.
The study revealed that HeLa is more aggressive than SiHa in inducing tumor angiogenesis and NO plays a key role in switching of IA under tumor microenvironment. Expand
Dietary oleic acid-induced CD36 promotes cervical cancer cell growth and metastasis via up-regulation Src/ERK pathway.
It is found that a high olive oil diet stimulated cervical cancer (CC) carcinogenesis, and oleic acid (OA), the main lipid in olive oil, was associated with increased malignancy in HeLa cells and CD36 expression was positively correlated with tumor progression and poor prognosis in patients with CC.

Combined delivery of salinomycin and docetaxel by dual-targeting gelatinase nanoparticles effectively inhibits cervical cancer cells and cancer stem cells
Sal-Doc-loaded gelatinase-stimuli nanoparticles could be a promising strategy to enhance antitumor efficacy and reduce side effects by simultaneously suppressing CSCs and non-CSCs. Expand
A functional interaction between the CCR5 and CD34 molecules expressed in hematopoietic cells can support (or even promote) the development of cancer
It is hypothesized that a functional interaction can connect CCR5 and CD34 molecules (giving rise to a “CCR5-CD34 axis”), which can potentially support the development of different types of cancer. Expand
The Relationship between Estrogen-Related Signaling and Human Papillomavirus Positive Cancers
It is suggested that estrogen may provide a potential therapeutic for HPV-related cancers, however additional studies are necessary. Expand
Gadolinium‐Doped Iron Oxide Nanoprobe as Multifunctional Bioimaging Agent and Drug Delivery System
In this study, a high-performance T1–T2 dual-model contrast agent by gadolinium-doped iron oxide nanoparticle (GION) is developed. Following its development, the application of this agent in vivo byExpand
The potential of understorey plants from Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park (West Java, Indonesia) as cervixs anticancer agents
The results show that of the 97 plants tested, there are five potential anticancer plants i.e. five understorey plants consisting of alkaloids, steroids, terpenoids, phenol, flavonoids and tannin. Expand
Black titania-based theranostic nanoplatform for single NIR laser induced dual-modal imaging-guided PTT/PDT.
Results well demonstrated that such a novel multifunctional theranostic nanoplaform could achieve high therapeutic efficacy of simultaneous and synergistic PTT/PDT under the guidance of infrared thermal/photoacoustic (PA) dual-modal imaging, which was triggered by a single NIR laser. Expand


HeLa cell-tumor in nude mice and its response to antitumor agents.
Histopathological examination revealed that the tumor retained the original characteristics of human epidermoid carcinoma; few mitotic figures, vacuolization, and pyknosis were main changes in tumor cells, and large foci of necrosis and hemorrhage were present in the degenerative areas. Expand
Orthotopic Xenograft Model of Cervical Cancer for Studying Microenvironmental Effects on Metastasis Formation and Response to Drug Treatment
A surgical technique for orthotopic implantation and the use of this model for investigating the effects of novel agents as inhibitors of tumor growth and metastasis are described. Expand
Hypoxia and metastasis in an orthotopic cervix cancer xenograft model.
Blocking CXCR4 or Hh gene expression are potential therapeutic pathways for improving cervix cancer treatment by reducing primary tumor size and reducing lymphatic metastasis to levels below those seen in control mice exposed to normoxic conditions. Expand
Clinical predictive value of the in vitro cell line, human xenograft, and mouse allograft preclinical cancer models.
It is suggested that under the right framework and when panels are used, the in vitro cell line and human xenograft models may be useful in predicting the Phase II clinical trial performance of cancer drugs. Expand
Clonogenic assay with established human tumour xenografts: correlation of in vitro to in vivo activity as a basis for anticancer drug discovery.
The TCA with established human tumour xenografts has an important role in current drug discovery strategies and a number of novel agents were active; these are now in advanced preclinical development or clinical trials. Expand
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition in cervical carcinoma.
An up-to-date overview regarding the program of EMT in cervical cancer is provided and transcriptional factors such as Snail, Twist1, Twist2, and six1 homeoproteins are involved in the complicated regulation and cervical cancer metastasis. Expand
Determination of subcutaneous tumor size in athymic (nude) mice
SummaryThe athymic (nude) mouse is a useful model for studying the biology and response to therapies of human tumors in vivo. A survey of recent literature revealed the use of 19 different formulasExpand
Anti-angiogenesis agents in metastatic or recurrent cervical cancer.
The dominant role of angiogenesis in cervical cancer seems to be directly related to HPV inhibition of p53 and stabilization of HIF-1 alpha, both of which increase VEGF, and bevacizumab binding and subsequent inactivation of V EGF seem to shrink cervical tumors and delay progression without appreciable toxicity. Expand
One hundred and twenty-seven cultured human tumor cell lines producing tumors in nude mice.
C cultured human tumor cell lines produced tumors after sc inoculation of 1-20 million cells into nude mice and the histopathology correlated with the human tumor of origin in all cases. Expand
Roles of intrinsic angiogenesis inhibitor, vasohibin, in cervical carcinomas
This is the first study to elucidate the correlation between theexpression of vasohibin in the stromal endothelial cells and the expression of VEGFR‐2 in human cervical carcinomas. Expand
