Selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) by 1alpha,25-dihydroxy-16-ene-23-yne-vitamin D3, a less calcemic vitamin D analog.


Inducible cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) has been implicated to play a role in inflammation and carcinogenesis and selective COX-2 inhibitors have been considered as anti-inflammatory and cancer chemopreventive agents. 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1alpha,25(OH)2D3), the active hormonal form of vitamin D3 also has been considered to be a cancer chemopreventive… (More)
