    Genistein (Gen), a soy isoflavone, is considered to exert potent antitumor effect partially through its anti-angiogenesis property. However, the precise molecular mechanism is still unknown. Our previous investigations have demonstrated that genistein down-regulates expression of pro-angiogenic...

    Background: In breast cancer, the HER2/neu oncoprotein, which belongs to the epidermal growth factor receptor family, may trigger activation of the phosphoinositide-3 kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway, which controls cell proliferation, survival, migration, and invasion. In this study, we examined the...

    The receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and MET are activated in subsets of mesothelioma, suggesting that these kinases might represent novel therapeutic targets in this notoriously chemotherapy-resistant cancer. However, clinical trials have shown little...

    Midkine (MDK) is a heparin-binding growth factor involved in growth, survival, migration, and differentiation of various target cells and dysregulation of MDK signaling is implicated in a variety of inflammatory diseases and cancers. Although MDK has been reported to act on endothelial cells and...

    Background Gemcitabine (2', 2'-difluorodeoxycytidine) is one of many nonplatinum drugs that exhibit activity in recurrent, platinum-resistant ovarian cancer. However, the molecular mechanisms by which Gemcitabine treatment inhibits the proliferation of platinum-resistant ovarian cancer cells...
