Negative regulators of cell death pathways in cancer: perspective on biomarkers and targeted therapies

It is concluded that nonapoptotic cell death pathways are a potential research arena for drug discovery, development of novel biomarkers and targeted therapies that provide a comprehensive platform for designing efficacious polytherapies.

Interferon-γ liposome: a new system to improve drug delivery in the treatment of lung cancer

The data obtained indicated that IFN-γ in both forms (INF-γ bulk and INF-γ nano-liposome) may potentially be effective for the treatment of lung cancer and showed the ability of IFn-γ liposome to reduce the DNA damage more than the bulk form.

Engineering Chlamydomonas reinhardtii for Expression of Functionally Active Human Interferon-α

The overall observed results support the application of C. reinhardtii expression system as a cost effective, eco-friendly, safe, and easy to employ compared to plant, bacterial and animal cell culture systems.

Fusion of a Novel Native Signal Peptide Enhanced the Secretion and Solubility of Bioactive Human Interferon Gamma Glycoproteins in Nicotiana benthamiana Using the Bamboo Mosaic Virus-Based Expression System

The results demonstrate the applicability of the BaMV-based vector systems as a useful alternative for the production of therapeutic proteins, through the incorporation of appropriate fusion tags.

Interferon-γ and Colorectal Cancer: an up-to date

The microenvironment is very important for the successful delivery of the treatment and several proteins and hormones play a crucial role in the efficiency of the Treatment.

Interferon status as a method of determination of nonspecific biomarkers of human immunopathology

An improved method of IFN status has been proposed and scientifically justified, the indicators of which can now be considered as characteristics of nonspecific biomarkers of human immunopathology.

Evaluation of Twenty Genes in Prognosis of Patients with Ovarian Cancer Using Four Different Clustering Methods

Six out of 20 genes selected by the Laplacian score showed key roles in the development of ovarian cancer and their prognostic values were clinically and statistically confirmed, indicating proper capability of the expression pattern of these genes in grouping the patients with similar prognosis.



Interferon regulatory factor‐1 mediates interferon‐γ‐induced apoptosis in ovarian carcinoma cells

It is suggested that IRF‐1 directly mediates the IFN‐γ‐induced apoptosis via the activation of caspase‐1 gene expression in IFN-γ‐sensitive ovarian cancer cells.

Control of cell cycle progression in human mesothelioma cells treated with gamma interferon

The present study provides the first evidence of a G2-arrest in r-hu-IFNγ-treated HM cell lines and indicates thatHM cell lines, despite their tumorigenic origin still support cell cycle control.

Cytotoxic response of ovarian cancer cell lines to IFN-γ is associated with sustained induction of IRF-1 and p21 mRNA

Continuous interaction with the IFN-γ receptor, together with a sustained induction of p21 and IRF-1, is associated with growth inhibitory and apoptotic effects of IFN -γ in ovarian cancer cells.

Interferon-gamma induces apoptosis and expression of inflammation-related proteins in Chang conjunctival cells.

Investigating the effect of interferon (IFN)gamma on cell viability, cell growth, and apoptosis and on expression of apoptotic and inflammation-related proteins in epithelial conjunctival cells in vitro suggested that activation of PKC is not involved in some IFNgamma cellular effects that possibly imply the upregulation and nuclear translocation of STAT1.

IFN-γ Induces Apoptosis in Ovarian Cancer Cells in Vivo and in Vitro

IFN-γ induces apoptosis in vitro and in vivo in human epithelial ovarian cancer, and cleaved poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase in protein isolates provided evidence of apoptosis.

IFN-? enhances TRAIL-induced apoptosis through IRF-1: IFN-? enhances TRAIL-induced apoptosis

It is shown that IFN-gamma enhances TRAIL-induced apoptosis through IRF-1, a member of the TNF family and a potent inducer of apoptosis.
