    ..01). Our data thus suggested COX-2 overexpression to be associated with increased PGE2 biosynthesis and angiogenesis in gastric cancer, which indicates that COX-2 may play a role in the development of gastric cancer...

    ..These effects of JTE-522 were more dramatic in MKN45 than in MKN28. Since JTE-522 strongly suppresses cell growth by inducing apoptosis in gastric cancer cell lines, it may therefore serve as a chemopreventive agent...
