UNLABELLED Increasing evidence has suggested that oxidative stress may be involved in the pathogenesis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The antioxidant vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) has been shown to slow down the onset and progression of the paralysis in transgenic mice expressing a mutation in the superoxide dismutase gene found in certain forms of(More)
A continuous human breast tumor cell line (BOT-2) was derived from an infiltrating duct carcinoma. The tumor cell line was grown as a monolayer in flasks, but the cells could be readily adapted to growth in roller cultures. These studies indicate that BOT-2 cells have a 16- to 18-hr doubling time and a modal chromosomal number of 63. The original BOT-2 cell(More)
Morphologic type is not generally included in the study of cancer risk factors. In breast cancer, attention is being given to age at diagnosis. In this study cases were analyzed by morphologic type as well as age at diagnosis for occurrence of bilateral disease and for family history of breast cancer. Of the morphologic types which were more frequent in(More)
The reactions of patients' sera with cultured human breast cancer cells were studied by fixed cell immunofluorescence (FCF) and living cell membrane immunofluorescence (MF) tests. The results suggested that the FCF reaction detected antibodies that were cell or organ specific, whereas the MF test was more indicative of an antineoplastic immune response.
A multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer control was developed through a network of 22 hospitals, and data were collected over two time periods to evaluate the impact of the network. A total of 1,800 cases of female breast cancer treated during the baseline period of 1971 to 1973 were compared with 2,102 current cases treated during the 1975 to 1977(More)
