Levels of matrix metalloproteases in bladder cancer correlate with tumor grade and invasion.
We have used quantitative zymography to measure levels of the type IV collagenases matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 and MMP-2 in 42 biopsies of transitional cell carcinoma and in 7 biopsies of normalExpand

Activity of type IV collagenases in benign and malignant breast disease.
Using zymography and computer assisted image analysis, we have measured the levels of type IV collagenases in biopsies from normal breast, and benign and malignant breast disease. The 92 kDa form wasExpand

A synthetic matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor decreases tumor burden and prolongs survival of mice bearing human ovarian carcinoma xenografts.
We have examined the effect of a synthetic low-molecular-weight matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor, [4-(N-hydroxyamino)-2R-isobutyl-3S- (thiopen-2-ylthiomethyl)-succinyl]-L-phenylalanine-N-meth ylaExpand

Inhibition of myeloperoxidase by salicylhydroxamic acid.
Salicylhydroxamic acid inhibited the luminol-dependent chemiluminescence of human neutrophils stimulated by phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate or the chemotactic peptideExpand

Expression and activity of MMPS and their regulators in ovarian cancer
In order to understand the ability of human ovarian cancers to degrade the basement membrane, we have studied the localization and activity of matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) 2 and 9, using in situExpand

Superoxide generation during phagocytosis by Acanthamoeba castellanii: similarities to the respiratory burst of immune phagocytes
Starved cultures of the soil amoeba Acanthamoeba castellanii suspended in phosphate-buffered saline exhibit stimulated O2 uptake in response to phagocytosis of either heat-killed yeast or latexExpand

Maximal rates of O2- and H2O2 production by human bloodstream monocytes activated during the respiratory burst by phorbol ester were only about 10% of those of neutrophils. Furthermore, monocytesExpand

Role of myeloperoxidase in the killing of Staphylococcus aureus by human neutrophils: studies with the myeloperoxidase inhibitor salicylhydroxamic acid.
We have used salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM) to inhibit intraphagosomal myeloperoxidase activity in order to evaluate the role of this enzyme in the killing of Staphylococcus aureus by humanExpand

Interactions between human monocytes and tumour cells. Monocytes can either enhance or inhibit the growth and survival of K562 cells.
Human bloodstream monocytes can kill cultured tumour cells (K562), as assessed by specific release of 51Cr from the targets and by inhibition of 3H-thymidine incorporation. Confluent monolayers ofExpand
