PGE(2) is generated by specific COX-2 activity and increases VEGF production in COX-2-expressing human pancreatic cancer cells.


In some cancers cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibition appears to be anti-mitogenic and anti-angiogenic, but the actions of COX-derived prostaglandins in pancreatic cancer (PaCa) are unknown. In this study COX-2 was detected in three of six PaCa cell lines while COX-1 was identified in all cell lines. COX-2 expression correlated with basal and arachidonic acid (AA… (More)
