Lung injury elicited by a single intratracheal instillation of fibrogenic (quartz) and nuisance (anatase) dusts and/or weekly repeated instillation of CdCl2 solution combined with sinusoidal (50 Hz, 10 mT) magnetic field (MF) exposure was studied in male rats. Combined effects in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), rat lungs and regional lymph nodes after 4(More)
We have prepared a retroviral expression construct, pPS-IL-2, in which human IL-2 cDNA has been inserted into the polylinker region, and have used the retroviral vector to introduce the functional IL-2 gene into a fibroblast cell line, RAT-1. Peritumoral administration of IL-2-producing RAT-1 cells into congenitally athymic (nu/nu) mice carrying(More)
It has been previously found that local administration of X63-m-IL-2 cells transformed by interleukin 2 (IL-2) cDNA and constitutively producing large quantities of IL-2 mediated regressions of murine plasmacytomas and 3-methyl-cholanthrene-induced sarcomas transplanted in syngeneic mice. Here we show that killer cells generated by cultivation of spleen(More)
Insertion of functional interleukin-2 (IL-2) gene into a plasmacytoma cell line X63-Ag8.653 substantially reduced tumorigenicity of the resulting cloned cells, designated as X63-m-IL-2. Peritumoral administration of the X63-m-IL-2 cells, producing constitutively large quantities of IL-2, resulted in regressions of established X63-Ag8.653 plasmacytomas(More)
The present study was designed to examine the kinetics and function of peritoneal exudate cells (PEC) during local interleukin 2 (IL-2) gene therapy of the X63-Ag8.653 plasmacytoma growing in the peritoneal cavity. BALB/c mice were inoculated i.p. on day 0 with a tumorigenic dose of the syngeneic plasmacytoma and on day 1 with non-tumorigenic plasmacytoma(More)
To isolate a stable tumor cell line source of IL-2 (TCGF), 19 murine T-cell lines and their derivatives were screened for both constitutive and mitogen-stimulated IL-2 production. The cloned subline of a mouse thymic lymphoma EL-4 designated as EL-4TF could be stimulated with PMA to produce 80 U/ml of IL-2. A TK- EL-4TFR mutant line has been selected from(More)
The effects of long-term internal contamination with 13.3 kBq kg-1 239Pu injected intravenously were studied in 10-week-old ICR (SPF) female mice. Radiosensitivity of spleen colony-forming units (CFU-S) and 125IUdR incorporating into proliferating cells of vertebral bone marrow and spleens were determined in plutonium-treated and control animals one year(More)
Female ICR mice were injected intravenously with low activities of 239Pu (3.0 kBq, 6.0 kBq, 12.3 kBq/kg). In these mice with high spontaneous incidence of hemoblastoses the occurrence of myeloid leukemia, lymphocytic leukemia, lymphosarcoma, reticulum-cell sarcomas and osteosarcoma was studied. Hemoblastoses, on the whole, remained in their numbers(More)
Cytologic and histologic evaluation of granulocytic leukemia was carried out in 22 plutonium-treated mice and in 17 controls. The contaminated animals were injected i. v. with 5.4 kBq 239Pu/mouse (180 kBq/kg) at the age of 70 days. Morphologic evidence of the disease was based on the identification of immature abnormal granulocytes in the bone marrow and(More)

Incidence of myeloid leukemia was studied in 79 mice injected i.v. with 180 kBq 239Pu/kg. Plutonium-treated mice were compared with 70 controls of the same origin and sex (random-bred ICR-SPF female mice). The animals were killed moribund and the disease was diagnosed on the basis of histological and cytologic examination of bone marrow, spleen, liver,(More)
