Fas/APO-1 is a cell surface protein known to trigger apoptosis upon specific antibody engagement. Because wild-type p53 can activate transcription as well as induce apoptosis, we queried whether p53 might upregulate Fas/APO-1. To explore this possibility, we examined human p53-null (H358 non-small-cell lung adenocarcinoma and K562 erythroleukemia) and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the intracellular pathways by which ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) negatively regulate the development of rod photoreceptors in the mouse retina. METHODS Retina explant cultures derived from timed-pregnant CD-1 mice were used to monitor rod photoreceptor(More)
This manuscript summarizes current thinking on the value and promise of evolving circulating tumor cell (CTC) technologies for cancer patient diagnosis, prognosis, and response to therapy, as well as accelerating oncologic drug development. Moving forward requires the application of the classic steps in biomarker development–analytical and clinical(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is associated with several types of lymphomas and epithelial tumors including Burkitt's lymphoma (BL), HIV-associated lymphoma, posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder, and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. EBV nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1) is expressed in all EBV associated tumors and is required for latency and transformation. EBNA1(More)
Donor lymphocyte infusions can reinduce complete remission in the majority of patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) who relapse into chronic phase after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Such infusions are associated with a high incidence of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and marrow aplasia. BMT using selective depletion of CD8+(More)
BACKGROUND Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R) proteins are highly expressed in many tumors, including those of the cervix. We have observed previously that the introduction of a transcription unit containing an antisense sequence for the E6/E7 genes of human papillomavirus (HPV) 18, along with a transcription unit containing a sense complementary DNA(More)
Gene transfer into hematopoietic stem cells by cell-free virions is a goal for gene therapy of hematolymphoid disorders. Because the hematopoietic microenvironment provided by the stroma is required for stem cell maintenance both in vivo and in vitro, we reasoned that cell-free transduction of bone marrow cells (BMC) may be aided by stromal support. We used(More)
Chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML) can be cured by donor marrow transplant. Unfortunately, suitably HLA-matched related or unrelated donors are not available for the majority of patients. Transplant of stem cells derived from a patient's own marrow or peripheral blood (autologous transplant) avoids the need for an HLA-matched donor, is associated with a(More)
