Bicuculline has been applied electrophoretically from a fluid filled microelectrode at different depths within the primary somatosensory area of the cerebral cortex of rats anaesthetized with urethane. The delay between onset of drug application at a constant rate and onset of spontaneous focal interictal epileptiform discharges (FIEDs), detected by a(More)
The quantitative distribution and phenotype of gamma/delta lymphocytes in the peripheral blood (PBL), tumour draining lymph node (LNL) and tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) from breast carcinoma patients were determined by one- and two-colour flow cytometry. The TCR-gamma/delta + cells generally expressed the T cell lineage antigen CD3. The proportions(More)
Among 27 uveal melanomas, five were found to contain tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs). Four had high levels of lymphocytes, and the fifth had comparatively low levels but adequate numbers for comprehensive analysis. The TILs were analyzed by flow cytometry to determine the relative proportions of lymphocyte subsets and markers of lymphocyte activation.(More)
An endogenous neuropeptide, opioid growth factor (OGF), chemically termed [Met(5)]-enkephalin, arrested the progression of established disease in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis (MS) called experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). This study treated mice who demonstrated 2 consecutive days of behavioral decline following injections of myelin(More)
DNA aneuploidy and p53 or c-erbB-2 expression were simultaneously measured in 29 breast tumours by two-colour flow cytometry. (i) The majority of tumours had some cells expressing either p53 (5-68%) or c-erbB-2 (1-56%). (ii) Expression of p53 and c-erbB-2 was observed mainly in the aneuploid population of mixed aneuploid and diploid tumours but there was no(More)
The hypotension and bradycardia observed after intravenous injection of dextran sulfate in rabbits was prevented by prior depletion of circulating platelets, but was not prevented by depletion of the third component of complement or Hageman factor. Dextran sulfate injection caused immediate thrombocytopenia with temporary localization of platelets within(More)
The primary tumour cells and tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) of 31 breast cancer patients have been analysed by dual colour flow cytometry to determine whether the phenotype and/or activation status of the TILs bears any relationship to the expression of MHC antigens on the tumour cells. The phenotype and activation status of 5000 TILs were studied(More)
The relative sensitivities of somatosensory and motor areas of the cerebral cortex in penicillin epileptogenesis were compared in urethane-anaesthetized rats. Penicillin was applied electrophoretically from a fluid-filled micro-electrode. Spontaneous focal interictal epileptiform discharges were detected by a nearby recording electrode. In motor cortex,(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantify vascular smooth muscle polyploidy and growth kinetics in aortic cells from stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP) and from normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats, and to examine the effects of treatment with the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor perindopril on these parameters. DESIGN The following(More)
The c-met proto-oncogene encodes the receptor to hepatocyte growth factor-scatter factor (HGF-SF), a mesenchyme-derived cytokine with cell-dissociating, invasion, and angiogenic properties. The expression of c-met in breast cancer is the subject of controversy; 111 primary breast cancers were examined for LOH of c-met by Southern blot electrophoresis. c-met(More)
