Although the chemopreventive and antitumorigenic activities of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) against colorectal cancer are well established, the molecular mechanisms responsible for these properties in ovarian cancer have not been elucidated. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop mechanism-based approaches for the management of ovarian cancer. To this end, the effect of several NSAIDs on ovarian cancer cells was investigated as assessed by the induction of NAG-1/MIC-1/GDF-15, a proapoptotic gene belonging to the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily.
