We examined whether cerebral activation due to secondary hyperalgesia resulting from intrajoint capsaicin injection could be detected using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in alpha-chloralose anesthetized rats. We also examined whether we could detect analgesic changes in the central nervous system response to pain as a result of physiotherapy(More)
CYP1B1 has been evaluated as a candidate gene for various cancers because of its function in activating environmental procarcinogens and catalysing the conversion of oestrogens to genotoxic catechol oestrogens. To test the hypothesis that genetic polymorphisms in the CYP1B1 gene may associate with the risk for prostate cancer (CaP), we compared the allele,(More)
PURPOSE To examine neuronal activation in the spinal cord due to secondary hyperalgesia resulting from intrajoint capsaicin injection, and the effect of physiotherapy manipulation, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), in alpha-chloralose anesthetized rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS FMRI of the rat lumbar spinal cord was performed at 9.4 Tesla.(More)
A novel 111In ligand (a C-functionalised derivative of 1,4,7-triazacyclononanetriacetic acid), termed 9N3, was covalently attached to chimeric B72.3, labelled with 111In and compared with 111In-labelled chimeric B72.3 diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA) cyclic anhydride conjugate (cDTPA) and a C-linked derivative of DTPA (CT-DTPA) in athymic mice(More)
Attachment of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) to proteins can greatly alter their pharmacological properties, including extending the plasma half-life and reducing immunogenicity, both of which are potentially beneficial to tumour targeting. IgG, F(ab')2 and Fab' fragments of the anti-CEA antibody A5B7 were chemically modified with PEG (M(r) 5,000), labelled(More)
The monoclonal antibody A33 recognises a tumour-associated antigen on human colorectal carcinoma, and has undergone preliminary evaluation in the clinic where selective localisation to hepatic metastases has been demonstrated [Welt et al. (1994) J. Clin. Oncol. 12, 1561-1571]. A33 and an A33 tri-fab fragment (TFM) were labelled with 90Y via a stable(More)
RATIONALE Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is a heritable predictor of cardiovascular disease, particularly in blacks. OBJECTIVE Determine the feasibility of combining evidence from two distinct but complementary experimental approaches to identify novel genetic predictors of increased LV mass. METHODS Whole-exome sequencing (WES) was conducted in(More)
