Buthionine sulphoximine (BSO) selectively inhibits glutathione (GSH) synthesis and may enhance the antineuroblastoma activity of melphalan (L-PAM). We determined the cytotoxicity of BSO (dose range 0-1000 microM) alone and in combination with L-PAM (dose range 0-0 microM) in a panel of 18 human neuroblastoma cell lines. BSO alone was highly cytotoxic with(More)
BACKGROUND The frequency of epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) expression was investigated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells and human tissues, and its clinicopathological significance in adenocarcinoma of the lung was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS EpCAM expression was analysed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(More)
Interleukin (IL)-1 has been suggested to participate in regulation of many reproductive functions. To investigate the possible role of IL-1alpha as a local regulator in bovine endometrium, we determined the effects of IL-1alpha on prostaglandin (PG) E2 and PGF(2alpha) output by the bovine endometrium at different stages of the estrous cycle. The expressions(More)
Bone marrow angiogenesis has been reported to increase in several hematologic malignant diseases, including multiple myeloma. Because high-dose chemotherapy combined with autologous stem cell transplantation (SCT) improves the response rate, event-free survival, and overall survival in patients with multiple myeloma (MM), we studied the changes in bone(More)
PURPOSE This study investigated possible molecular predictors of outcome in Korean patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer treated with erlotinib. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN One hundred and twenty patients received erlotinib and were followed prospectively. Ninety-two tissue samples were analyzed for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene(More)
Bovine immature oocytes cultured for various times in TC-199 medium were inseminated with frozen-thawed spermatozoa in Medium BO with caffeine (5 mM) and heparin (10 micrograms/ml). Very high penetration rates (95-100%) were obtained in all oocytes which had been cultured for 0-20 h. When oocytes cultured for 0 and 4 h were inseminated, 100% of them were(More)
Bovine follicular oocytes matured in culture were inseminated with frozen-thawed spermatozoa which were either preincubated for 5-5.5 h or not preincubated in a medium with caffeine (5 mM) and heparin (10 micrograms/ml). When the oocytes with cumulus and corona cells were inseminated, spermatozoa started to penetrate oocytes 3 h later regardless of whether(More)
In a study of the effect of glycerin in transport media on Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Salmonella, it was found that a concentration of 30% glycerin was highly inhibitory for V. parahaemolyticus and to a lesser degree for Salmonella. The incorporation of peptone or human feces in media did not reduce the inhibitory effect of glycerin. In media with 15%(More)
Carbohydrate-protein interactions are known to be important in gamete interactions. Several evidence indicated that a fucose-containing sulfated polysaccharide fucoidan was potential inhibitor of fertilization in vitro and thus fucose seemed to be part of the recognition signal of gamete interaction in mammals. In recent investigation we found that(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effects of chondroitin sulfate C (CS-C) on sperm capacitation and fertilization parameters in vitro in pigs. Frozen-thawed ejaculated pig sperm (semen S-484) were incubated with fertilization medium containing CS-C (0-2mg/ml) for 1h and the capacitation rate with chlorotetracycline (CTC) assay was examined,(More)
