BACKGROUND The role of P-glycoprotein (Pgp) associated multidrug resistance for neuroblastoma patients is controversial. Therefore we asked whether at all the typical functional features of the multidrug resistance phenotype could be found in neuroblastoma cells and studied the prognostic relevance of Pgp expression. PATIENTS AND METHODS Tumor touch(More)
The effects of the immunosuppressants cyclosporin A (CsA) and tacrolimus (FK506) on the IL-1beta-induced matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) were investigated. Impairment of the protease-antiprotease balance contributes to renal fibrosis, which is observed collectively under long-term treatment with either immunosuppressant. It is demonstrated that CsA, in(More)
Surgical widening of the abdomen by a silastic pouch has been used very rarely in the management of critically ill infants with hepatomegaly due to neuroblastoma stage 4S. A female newborn baby was referred on the second day of life because of local compressive effects of a massive hepatomegaly, which lead to multiorgan failure. An artificial abdominal(More)
