Some cases of breast cancer are composed of clones of hormonal-independent growing cells, which do not respond to therapy. In the present study, the effect of Benzene-Poly-Carboxylic Acid Complex (BP-C1) on growth of human breast-cancer cells was tested. BP-C1 is a novel anti-cancer complex of benzene-poly-carboxylic acids with a very low concentration of(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the efficacy of 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) in prevention of prostate cancer tumor development in an animal model. Mouse prostate cancer cells (TRAMP-C2, 2x10) were injected subcutaneously into three groups of C57BL/6 mice (10 mice in each group). Two groups were treated earlier with DIM; 2 or 10 mg/kg each, and an(More)
Transient miosis presents a challenge in extracapsular cataract extraction and retinal detachment surgery, despite the advent of the small-pupil ophthalmoscope. Mechanisms have been proposed and preventive measures described. We describe a case of transient miosis that led to cancellation of the repair of retinal detachment and was the first sign of early(More)
Cis-diammineplatinum (II) benzene-polycarboxylic acids (CDBPA) is a new therapy of solid tumors without toxicity, mild and transient side-effects and an ability to improve quality of life. The underlying mechanism of action of CDBPA in Burkitt`s lymphoma was tested in vitro and its effect on tumor size and survival was tested in a NOD-scid mice model. BL(More)
