    ..Our results offer proof of concept that buccal PWS may potentially herald a minimally intrusive prescreening test that could be integral to the success of lung cancer population screening programs. ..

    ..These results demonstrate for the first time that PEG is involved in p21 regulation concomitant with G1S phase cell cycle arrest and it is through these effects that it can exert its anti-proliferative and hence chemopreventive role. ..

    ..11). In conclusion, we demonstrate, for the first time, that SNAIL is upregulated in human colon cancer, which potentially may have significance in control of metastasis and possibly serve as a target for chemopreventive agents. ..

    ..In conclusion, we demonstrate that the differential mechanisms for beta-catenin suppression may be determined, at least partly, by GSK-3beta...

    ..While this PMO regimen afforded modest SNAIL suppression and hence tumor reduction, this provides compelling evidence for the role of SNAIL overexpression in colonic neoplasia. ..

    ..These data indicate that iNOS induction may have a critical role in augmenting the predysplastic mucosal blood supply and thereby fostering colon carcinogenesis. ..
