abstract

  • The results of the current study demonstrated that human prostate carcinoma cells generated COX-2, and that COX-2 might play an important role in the proliferation of prostate carcinoma cells. These findings suggest that inhibition of COX-2 development may lead not only to inhibition of the proliferation and metastasis of prostate carcinoma but also to the inhibition of prostate carcinogenesis.
