Abstract: Prostaglandin endoperoxide H synthase (PGHS) is a key enzyme for the synthesis of prostaglandins (PGs) which play important roles in inflammation and carcinogenesis.

    Abstract Continuous use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) lowers the relative risk of colorectal cancer in humans and decreases tumor yield in rodents treated with carcinogens. One well documented target for NSAIDs is prostaglandin endoperoxide synthase (cyclooxygenase) and two isoforms of this enzyme have been identified.   Prostaglandins are endogenous mediators formed from arachidonic acid by cyclooxygenases and prostaglandin synthases during inflammatory processes. The five-membered ring can be dehydrated, and α,β-unsaturated cyclopentenone PGs (cyPGs) are generated. Recent studies have been focused on their potential pharmacological use against inflammation and cancer. However, .

Title(s): Selected abstracts on prostaglandins and carcinogenesis/ R.S. Bockman, consulting reviewer. The inhibitory effect of 40 and 80% maximum tolerated dose (MTD) levels of piroxicam, ibuprofen, ketoprofen and glycyrrhetinic acid on colon carcinogenesis was investigated in male F rats.

The MTD levels of piroxicam, ibuprofen, ketoprofen and glycyrrhetinic acid as determined in male E rats were, and p.p.m. by:   INCREASED amounts of prostaglandins, especially prostaglandin (PG) E2 (PGE2), have been detected in human cancer tissue as well as in cultured mouse fibrosarcoma cells1.

Elevated prostaglandin Cited by: Abstract. Prostaglandins (PGs) and their analogs endoperoxides are a large series of compounds which mainly enhanced cancer development and progression, acting as cocarcinogens or tumor promoters, and having profound effects on carcinogenesis.

Although PGs are ubiquitous tissue hormones exerting pleiotropic effects on cancer cells, their Cited by: Part of the Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes, and Cancer book series (PLAC, volume 2) Abstract This suspicion was first voiced by Rehn in (1) after he noticed three cases of bladder cancer among workers employed at an amine-derived dye factory in Germany.

It has been proposed that the promoting effect of a high-fat diet on carcinogenesis is the result of an accelerated formation of arachidonic acid and subsequently of prostaglandins. The ω-6 PUFA, particularly linoleic acid, gives rise to prostaglandins and leukotrienes of the 2-series via arachidonic acid, which can affect cell proliferation.

Abstract. There is considerable evidence that lipids, and specifically prostaglandins (pgs), can contribute to progressive tumor growth (1). Many studies provide evidence that lipids can contribute to early steps in carcinogenesis, in particular early promotional events. Chamomile treatment inhibited the release of LPS-induced prostaglandin E(2) in RAW macrophages.

This effect was found to be due to inhibition of COX-2 enzyme activity by chamomile. In addition, chamomile caused reduction in LPS-induced COX-2 mRNA and protein expression, without affecting COX-1 expression.

Abstract: Eicosanoids, which originate from polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), have a major impact on homeostasis maintenance as secondary signal transducers. Signal cascade, which includes reception, processing and signal transduction coming from the environment into the cell, determines the type of response evoked.

Eicosanoids participate in carcinogenesis initiation and promotion, and their relationship with tumor promoters and growth factors is well established.Introduction.

Prostaglandins are important inflammatory mediators; PGE 2 is the predominant prostaglandin in colorectal neoplasia and affects colorectal carcinogenesis. Prostaglandins are metabolites of omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids; their biosynthesis is the primary target of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which reduce colorectal neoplasia risk.
