AIDS-associated Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) in eight patients was treated with the systemic application of liposomal doxorubicin (20 mg/m2 per cycle). After six cycles of treatment a significant regression of KS was observed in all patients. Tumour volume was reduced from 556 +/- 635 mm3 before therapy to 42 +/- 134 mm3 after therapy as determined by(More)
By means of a combined in vitro and in vivo analysis we provide evidence that IL-1 beta and PDGF-B, but not OSM (oncostatin M) or IL-6, are major mitogens for the spindle cells of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) in vivo. PDGF-B and IL-1 beta stimulated proliferation of cultivated KS spindle cells in vitro. Analysis of gene expression in vivo revealed that both(More)
Glutamatergic NMDA receptors are believed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of numerous neuropsychiatric disorders including substance use and schizophrenia. Neuropharmacological studies measuring subjective response, psychopathology and biological parameters are helpful in studying pathophysiology of these disorders. We report preliminary data of(More)
