Using highly purified myeloma cells from patient bone marrow, we established human-murine myeloma chimeras in severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mice and documented secretion of monoclonal human immunoglobulins (Hulgs) in the mice for up to 299 days. Monoclonality of circulating Hulgs was found only when highly purified myeloma cells were injected(More)
We have established a reproducible in vivo model of human multiple myeloma in the severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mouse using both the RPMI 8226 human myeloma cell line and the P-glycoprotein-expressing multidrug-resistant 8226/C1N subline. SCID mice 5 to 8 weeks of age were injected intraperitoneally with either 8226 drug-sensitive or(More)
We report 2 patients who presented with vasomotor symptoms and severe thrombocytopenia following rattlesnake bites. These symptoms persisted in spite of treatment with antivenin and transfusion of multiple doses of platelets. Thrombocytopenia is a common occurrence in moderate to severe crotaline envenomation. Algorithms suggested for the treatment of(More)
Multiple myeloma is a plasma cell malignancy which is generally incurable in spite of a high initial response to chemotherapy. Relapsing disease commonly heralds an increase in the incidence of drug resistance which is often mediated by the product of the MDR-1 gene, P-glycoprotein (Pgp). One approach to modulating drug resistance due to Pgp overexpression(More)
BACKGROUND The severe combined immune deficiency (SCID) mouse is lacking mature B and T lymphocytes and may be permissive for human tumor growth and metastasis. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN SCID mice received human melanoma cells of diverse origins including: 2 established cell lines, 4 early passage cell lines, and fresh or cryopreserved cells obtained directly(More)
The effect of caloreen (glucose polymer) supplementation on indicators of iron status during protein-energy malnutrition was studied. Sixty-four children with moderate protein energy malnutrition (PEM) were fed diets supplemented with caloreen or starch (control) for 14 days, following which iron status as packed cell volume (PCV), haemoglobin (Hb), serum(More)
We have established a reproducible in vivo model of human multiple myeloma in the severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mouse using both the drug-sensitive 8226/S human myeboma cell line and the P-glycoproteinexpressing multidrug-resistant 8226/C1N subline. As demonstrated previously, the SCID mouse is well suited as a model for myeloma because: (a) human(More)
