Normal human uroepithelial cells (HUC) were transformed with simian virus 40 (SV40) in vitro. SV40-transformed HUC (SV-HUC) were selected by their ability to survive senescence which normally occurs in HUC between passages 4 and 6. At passage 6, 100% of SV-HUC stained positive for SV40 T-antigen. The epithelial nature of SV-HUC was confirmed by positive(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize functional and anatomic sequelae of a bleb induced by subretinal injection. METHODS Subretinal injections (100 μL) of balanced salt solution were placed in the superotemporal macula of 1 eye in 3 cynomolgus macaques. Fellow eyes received intravitreal injections (100 μL) of balanced salt solution. Fundus photography, ocular(More)
We have previously reported that 5'-aminothymidine (5'-AdThd), an antagonist of the feedback inhibition exerted by dTTP that regulates thymidine kinase, enhances the uptake and cytotoxicity of 5-iododeoxyuridine in various human bladder cancer cell lines but not in normal human urothelial cells (HU) propagated in vitro. In this work we have analyzed the(More)
Purpose The purpose of this study was to characterize the inflammatory response and determine a no-observable effect level (NOEL) in rabbit eyes after endotoxin intravitreal (ITV) injection. Methods Fifty-three naïve male Dutch Belted rabbits were treated with a single 50-μL ITV injection ranging from 0.01 to 0.75 endotoxin units/eye (EU/eye) and(More)
