CD40, a tumour necrosis factor (TNF) receptor family member, is expressed in a variety of cell types, including B lymphocytes, macrophages, fibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells, and this widespread expression is likely to account for its central role in normal physiology and disease pathogenesis. In this study, we provide evidence to support a role(More)
In this study, we describe the expression and function of CD40, a TNF receptor family member, in cervical carcinomas. CD40 was present at very low levels in normal cervical epithelium but was overexpressed in human papillomavirus-infected lesions and advanced squamous carcinomas of the cervix. The stimulation of CD40-positive cervical carcinoma cell lines(More)
The ability of histamine to stimulate gastric acid secretion was recognized over 75 years ago by Popielski [1]. The central importance of this action in the physiological regulation of acid secretion was established with the development of histamine H2 receptor antagonists by Black and colleagues in the early 1970s [2]. There has, however, been intense(More)
