Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the fourth most common cancer type globally. Investigating the signaling pathways that maintain cancer cell phenotype can identify new biomarkers for targeted therapy. Aberrant transforming growth factor-β (TGFβ) signaling has been implicated in CRC progression, however, the exact mechanism by which TGFβ exerts its function is still being unraveled. Herein, we investigated TAGLN expression, prognostic value, and its regulation by TGFβ in CRC. While TAGLN was generally ...

Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disease, where chronic immune responses due to exaggerated cytokine signaling, abnormal differentiation, and evasion of keratinocytes apoptosis plays a crucial role in mediating abnormal keratinocytes hyperproliferation. From the therapeutic perspective, the molecules with strong anti-proliferative and anti-inflammatory properties could have tremendous relevance. In this study, we demonstrated that piperlongumine (PPL) treatment effectively abrogated the hyperprol...

Cyclophosphamide (CP) is a widely used chemotherapeutic agent; however, its clinical application is limited because of its multi-organ toxicity. Galangin (Gal) is a bioactive flavonoid with promising biological activities. This study investigated the hepatoprotective effect of Gal in CP-induced rats. Rats received Gal (15, 30 and 60 mg/kg/day) for 15 days followed by a single dose of CP at day 16. Cyclophosphamide triggered liver injury characterized by elevated serum transaminases, alkaline pho...

Objective and design Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is known to cause chronic inflammation in the digestive tract by the immune malfunction. Herein, we demonstrate the protective effect of galangin (GAL), a phytochemical, on LPS-induced inflammation in cultured mouse macrophages (RAW 264.7) and the treatment of DSS-induced ulcerative colitis in Balb/c mice. However, the anti-inflammatory effect of GAL in DSS-exposed experimental colitis has not been investigated.

Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the protective effects of ambroxol in psoriasis-like skin inflammation both in vitro and in vivo and delineate the molecular mechanism of ambroxol. Our data demonstrated that ambroxol has an imperative role in inhibiting the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulated nitrite levels, total cellular and mitochondrial reactive oxygen species level which was determined by Griess assay, DCFDA, and MitoSOX Red staining, respectively. We found that ambroxo...

: Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease with keratinocyte activation and lymphocyte infiltration in the skin. Our previous study found that 5-hydroxytryptophan (5(OH)Trp), a tryptophan metabolite, alleviated collagen-induced arthritis and suppressed cytokine production. In this study, we evaluated the effects of 5(OH)Trp in a mouse model for psoriasiform dermatitis, induced by imiquimod (IMQ). We showed that 5(OH)Trp significantly reduced the cumulative scores, epidermal thickness and ki-67 ...

Biological therapies (BTs) including infliximab (IFX), adalimumab (ADL), secukinumab (SCK) and ustekinumab (UST) are approved in Japan for the treatment of psoriasis. Although the persistence rates and medical costs of BTs treatment have been investigated in multiple foreign studies in recent years, few such studies have been conducted in Japan and the differences between patients who adhered to treatment and those who did not have not been reported. This study is aimed at investigating the pers...

Abstract In this paper, we investigate the effect of glabridin (Glab) on psoriasis. We observed that Glab significantly suppressed the levels of nitric oxide (NO), NF-κB subunit p65, interleukin (IL)-6, and IL-1β in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated HaCaT cells. In addition, Glab treatment reduced the expression of IL-17A, IL-22, and IL-23 in TNF- α- stimulated-HaCaT cells. These findings prompted us to test whether Glab could be used to treat psoriasis in vivo. The effects of Glab on PASI sco...

Abstract Sepsis-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) is responsible for 70–80% mortality in intensive care patients due to elevated levels of endotoxin, Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) caused by gram-negative infections. Ferulic acid (FA), a phenolic phytochemical is known for its renal protection on various induced models of nephrotoxicity. However, the curative effect of FA in LPS-induced AKI is not well studied. This study aimed to investigate the effect of FA on LPS-induced AKI in mice model and to un...

There is a concern that topical tacrolimus and pimecrolimus, indicated for second-line treatment of atopic dermatitis, may increase the risk of lymphoma and skin cancer, particularly in children.The aim of this study was to compare incidence rates (IRs) of lymphoma and skin cancer between new users of topical tacrolimus or pimecrolimus and users of moderate- to high-potency topical corticosteroids (TCSs) and untreated subjects.This is a multicenter cohort study with frequency matching by strata ...

Abstract null null Aim null Hepatotoxicity is a critical consequence of the iron overload conditions such as hemochromatosis and blood transfusion-requiring anemia. Iron induces hepatotoxicity largely through disruption of cellular redox homeostasis and induction of inflammatory responses. The present work explored the hepatoprotective activity of the bio-active flavone galangin against iron-evoked hepatotoxicity. null null null Main methods null Iron overload model was established in male Wista...
