Gemcitabine is a standard treatment for advanced pancreatic cancer patients but can cause chemoresistance during treatment. The chemoresistant cells have features of cancer stem cells (CSCs). Resveratrol has been reported to overcome the resistance induced by gemcitabine. However, the mechanism by which resveratrol enhances chemosensitivity remains elusive. Here, we explored the mechanism by which resveratrol enhanced chemosensitivity and the role of sterol regulatory element binding protein 1 (SREBP1) in gemcitabine-induced stemness.

Resveratrol reportedly promotes the improvement of cardiac dysfunction and other cardiovascular diseases. Studies demonstrate resveratrol exhibits a set of benefits, including anti-oxidative property,...
Osteosarcoma stem cells are able to escape treatment with conventional chemotherapeutic drugs, as the majority of them are in a quiescent state. Recent reports have suggested that small ubiquitin‑li...
Dysregulated long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) mediating chemotherapeutic drug effects and metastasis in pancreatic cancer (PC) are key reasons for the poor prognosis of this diseas...
TAK1 is closely associated with the NF-κB and MAPK signaling pathways. In the present study, we aimed to explore the relationship between TAK1 and gout as well as the effects of resveratrol on TAK1 a...
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) promote tumor-mediated immunosuppression and cancer progression. Gemcitabine (Gem) is a MDSC-depleting chemotherapeutic agent; however, its clinical use is ham...
The main objective of this study is to investigate the effect of resveratrol on inflammatory mediators and insulin resistance at the cellular and molecular level in obese non diabetic and ...

Resveratrol, a compound found in red wine and dark-skinned grapes, will improve the function of mitochondria (energy producing components) within the leg muscles of moderate functioning ol...
This pilot phase I trial studies resveratrol in postmenopausal women with high body mass index. Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming. The use of resverat...
We want to investigate whether the food supplement resveratrol is able to counteract the detrimental effects of obesity.
An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)
A synthetic methylprostaglandin E1 analog that reduces gastric acid secretion and enhances the gastric mucus-bicarbonate barrier. It is effective in the therapy of gastric ulcers and gives significant protection against NSAID-induced gastric mucosal damage. The drug also prevents cyclosporin A-induced damage to endocrine and exocrine pancreatic secretions. It shows a low order of acute toxicity and there is no evidence of embryotoxicity, fetotoxicity, teratogenicity, or mutagenicity in animal studies.
An induced response to threatening stimuli characterized by complete loss of muscle strength.
A member of the TNF receptor family that was initially identified as a DEXAMETHASONE-induced protein from a T-CELL line. It may play a role in regulating APOPTOSIS and modulating immune response by T-lymphocytes. Signaling by the activated receptor occurs through its association with TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTORS.
A dideoxynucleoside compound in which the 3'-hydroxy group on the sugar moiety has been replaced by an azido group. This modification prevents the formation of phosphodiester linkages which are needed for the completion of nucleic acid chains. The compound is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication, acting as a chain-terminator of viral DNA during reverse transcription. It improves immunologic function, partially reverses the HIV-induced neurological dysfunction, and improves certain other clinical abnormalities associated with AIDS. Its principal toxic effect is dose-dependent suppression of bone marrow, resulting in anemia and leukopenia.
The pancreas secretes a number of important hormones into the digestive tract and the blood stream. Cancers are most commonly exocrine than endocrine (neuroendocrine) tumors. Functional tumors secrete hormones; Insulinoma, Gastrinoma, Somatostatinoma, VI...
