Adult, regularly cycling female Fischer rats were injected daily with 10 mg/kg fluoxetine for 12-23 days. In the first experiment, body weight and vaginal smears were monitored daily. Fluoxetine treatment reduced body weight within the first 24 h of treatment. Fluoxetine treatment also elongated the estrous cycle, reduced blood levels of progesterone, and(More)
Changes in erythrocyte (RBC) polyamines were studied during total parenteral nutrition (TPN) in 16 colorectal carcinoma patients and six patients with noncancerous diseases. RBC putrescine (PTC), spermidine (SPD), and spermine (SPM) were analyzed before and at the completion of preoperative TPN in each patient. Before TPN, nutritional status, based on a(More)
BACKGROUND Malignancy of the prostate constitutes a leading cause of cancer-related deaths in America and Europe. Alpha-tocopheryl succinate (alpha-TOS) has been shown to inhibit human prostate cancer growth in vitro, via several mechanisms, including inhibiting prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expressions. The(More)
Two human colonic adenocarcinoma cell lines were propagated in the Rowett athymic rat. Line LoVo displayed a well-differentiated morphology and exhibited progressive growth over a 70-day observation period with a doubling time of 8.5 days throughout. No metastatic involvement was noted. Xenografts of SW 620 cells were undifferentiated and highly necrotic.(More)

CDF1 mice receiving Adriamycin, 12 mg/kg IP develop a toxic GI mucositis. The mean survival in CDF1 mice after Adriamycin injection was found to be 6.5 +/- 2.0 weeks and could be increased by alcohol or acetate Vitamin E pretreatment (with 2 g/kg qDx7d) to 22.06 +/- 12.3 weeks or by treatment with Venoruton after Adriamycin (qDx7 with 1.5 g/kg) to 23.7 +/-(More)
