Various metabolites of arachidonic acid are now known to influence cell division. In this paper the effects on cell proliferation of arachidonic acid, some inhibitors of arachidonic acid metabolism and some analogs of arachidonic acid metabolites is described. The epithelial cell proliferation rate in the jejunum, in the descending colon and in dimethylhydrazine-induced tumors of rat colon was measured using a stathmokinetic technique. Administration of arachidonic acid resulted in retardation… Expand

Biological half-life of prostacyclin and 6-oxo-PGF1 alpha levels in plasma of patients with colonic cancer.
TLDR
The data suggest that in patients suffering from colonic cancer the speed of degradation of PGI2 is not a key determinant in local hemostatic dysregulation favouring early metastasis, however, PGI-T/2 or its stable derivatives may be involved in the development of Colonic cancer. Expand
Prostaglandin E2-induced hyperplasia of the rat antral epithelium is followed by a secondary inhibition of the mitotic activity.
TLDR
It is concluded that hyperplasia by prostaglandins is developed in absence of changes of the mitotic activity, possibly mediated by a regulatory mechanism of cell proliferation which is triggered to reduce further epithelial growth. Expand
PROSTAGLANDINS - DIET - CANCER: A REVIEW
TLDR
Research should be conducted to delineate which types of diet in concert with immunotherapy could optimize anti-cancer treatment, and a general protocol would involve decreased arachidonic acid and linoleic acid intake while increasing intake of γ-linolenic acid and C20 and C22 ω3 fatty acids derived from fish oil.

Dietary Fats as Mediators of Obesity, Inflammation, and Colon Cancer
TLDR
The evidence supporting a role for dietary fats in the development of inflammation and intestinal tumorigenesis is examined, and different fats and different diets are compared for their ability to promote or prevent intestinal tumors. Expand

Influence of prostaglandin analogues on epithelial cell proliferation and xenograft growth.
TLDR
The PG F2 alpha analogue was found to be a strong inhibitor of cell proliferation in rat colonic tumours, and an accelerator of proliferation in jejunal-crypt cells, and the only statistically significant effect of flurbiprofen was to accelerate cell division in the rat coloning tumours. Expand
The importance of phospholipase-A2 in prostaglandin biosynthesis.
TLDR
Phospholipase is the key enzyme which mobilises free fatty acids for prostaglandin biosynthesis during these types of cell injury, indicating that substrate availability is not the only requirement for stimulation of prostaglanders biosynthesis. Expand
Early alterations in rat colonic mucosal cyclic nucleotide metabolism and protein kinase activity induced by 1,2-dimethylhydrazine.
TLDR
Cutting cAMP and cAMP-dependent PK activity could play a permissive role in the enhancement of DNA synthesis observed three to five days after DMH, consistent with an inhibitory influence of cAMP on the proliferative activity of colonic epithelium. Expand
A new approach to anti-inflammatory drugs.
TLDR
2-pyrazoline inhibits both pathways of arachidonic acid metabolism in vitro and causes a dose-dependent reduction in carrageenin-induced oedema in the rat paw, and BW755C reduces prostaglandin concentration in inflammatory exudates and has a significantly greater effect on leukocyte migration than indomethacin.

Nafazatrom (bay g 6575) inhibition of tumor cell lipoxygenase activity and cellular proliferation
TLDR
It is reported here that nafazatrom inhibits tumor cell lipoxygenase activity but not prostaglandin endoperoxide synthetase (cyclooxygenases t hydroperoxidase) and this compound was found to be a potent cytostatic agent against the B16 amelanotic’ melanoma (B16a). Expand
Prostaglandins from tumours of human large bowel.
TLDR
It is confirmed that more PG can usually be extracted from human colonic tumours than from normal tissue and analysed statistically using the Wilcoxon matched-pairs rank test or the Mann-Whitney U test. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that A and E series prostaglandin analogs inhibit DNA synthesis in two unrelated tumor types and thus may be potent inhibitors of tumor growth. Expand
Prostaglandin synthetase activity from human rheumatoid synovial tissue and its inhibition by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
TLDR
The enzyme was inhibited in vitro by the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs flurbiprofen, indomethacin and aspirin in the same rank order of potency as prostaglandin synthetase from other tissues. Expand
A comparison of imidazole and 9,11-azoprosta-5,13-dienoic acid. Two selective thromboxane synthetase inhibitors.
TLDR
The results indicate that azo analog I functions by competitive inhibition of prostaglandin H2 on the throm boxane synthetase, and that imidazole, while it suppresses thromboxane A2 formation, may have an associated agonist activity that enhances platelet aggregation. Expand
COMPARISON OF THE ACTIONS OF U‐46619, A PROSTAGLANDIN H2‐ANALOGUE, WITH THOSE OF PROSTAGLANDIN H2 AND THROMBOXANE A2 ON SOME ISOLATED SMOOTH MUSCLE PREPARATIONS
TLDR
It is suggested that U‐46619 is a selective TxA2‐mimetic and that it should therefore be a valuable tool in the study of the actions of TXA2. Expand
