We investigated the effect of c-myb antisense phosphorothioate oligodeoxynucleotides [(S)ODNs] and cisplatin (CDDP) combination on the human colon carcinoma cell line LoVo Dx both in vitro and in nude mice bearing LoVo Dx solid tumour. We show that antisense (S)ODN treatment decreases c-myb mRNA and protein expression, induces growth arrest in the G1 phase(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) of tumour cells is considered to be one of the major obstacles to effective cancer chemo-therapy (Curt et al., 1984; Bradley et al., 1988; van der Bliek & Borst, 1989). Such resistance can be an intrinsic property of a tumour or may be acquired following courses of chemotherapy. MDR has been shown to be associated with reduced(More)
In this paper we propose a reduced complexity technique for the rate-distortion optimization in JVT/H.26L in the presence of packet erasures. It is named few decoders in the encoder, and is based on the idea of generating a selected number of error patterns in the encoder, so that a limited number of co-decoding processes can be implemented to estimate the(More)
