Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) has the highest rate of metastasis among head and neck cancers, and distant metastasis is the major reason for treatment failure. We have previously shown that high cyclooxygenase‐2 (COX‐2) expression is associated with a poor prognosis of patients with NPC and inhibits chemotherapy‐induced senescence in NPC cells. In this study, we found that COX‐2 was upregulated in...
Background and Purpose
An appropriate inflammatory response is necessary for cardiac healing after acute myocardial infarction (MI). Resolvin E1 (RvE1) is an anti‐inflammatory and pro‐resolution lipid mediator derived from eicosapentaenoic acid. Here we have investigated the effects of RvE1 on the recovery of cardiac function after MI in mice.
Acute MI was induced by surgical...
