Lipid peroxidation products can be cytotoxic. Our objectives were (1) to use two pro-oxidants (iron and a pro-oxidative drug) to selectively increase lipid peroxidation in the implanted human breast tumours of mice consuming fish oil and (2) to kill the cancer cells without harming normal host tissues. The theoretical basis for selective cytotoxicity is(More)
OBJECTIVE Early growth response protein-1 (Egr-1)/nerve growth factor-induced A (also known as Zif-268, Krox-24, TIS8, ZENK) is a zinc-finger transcription factor which, although expressed in a range of organ systems, has been shown to be essential only in the maintenance of fertility through actions within the endocrine system. In the present study we have(More)
Sera from 735 patients with systemic sclerosis were classified according to antinuclear antibody (ANA) pattern as follows: centromere (25%), homogeneous (26%), fine speckled (21%), fine speckled with nucleolar (14%), coarse speckled (7%), nucleolar only (3%) and cytoplasmic only (3%). Immunoprecipitations using 35S-labelled HeLa cell antigen extract were(More)
Recent reports showing that circadian light cues may induce gene-specific patterns of expression in periventricular hypothalamic neurons has extended the functional correlates of light-pulse stimuli, which are conventionally restricted to circadian phase-setting actions within the suprachiasmatic nucleus (ScN). The aims of the present study were, first, to(More)
Lung cancer is the number 1 cause of cancer death and the most common cancer type worldwide. Unfortunately, its prognosis is poor and the available treatment modalities are limited. Because patients (and their loved ones) have to deal with such a bad prognosis within a short time period, learning to live with lung cancer and its treatment trajectory until(More)
