The technique of alkaline elution has been adapted for the study of drug-induced DNA cross-link formation in vivo. Pretreatment with misonidazole (MISO) enhances the number of cross-links formed in a fibrosarcoma and in the spleen and gut of mice for periods up to 48 h following a single injection of melphalan (MEL). The tumour was sensitized by a greater(More)
Background. Advanced age is associated with a poorer prognosis in patients with melanoma. Despite this established finding, a decreased incidence of positive sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) with advancing age has paradoxically been described. Methods. Using a single-institution database of melanoma patients between 1994 and 2009, the relationship between(More)
St James's Hospital is a tertiary referral center for percutaneous intervention and cardiothoracic surgery for a number of referring hospitals. This article reports on the development and implementation of a synchronized, interactive teleconferencing system for cardiac images that links St. James's Hospital with a remote site (Sligo General Hospital) and(More)
Sublines of a human myeloid leukaemia cell line, KBM-3, with increasing degrees of resistance to the antileukaemic agent 4'-(9-acridinlylamino) methanesulphon-m-anisidide (m-AMSA) were evaluated for their response to this drug using a clonogenic assay to measure cell survival and alkaline elution to assess m-AMSA induced DNA strand breakage. Polyacrylamide(More)
In the present study we have used the alkaline elution technique to study the effect of misonidazole (MISO) on the initial amount of DNA cross-linking in various normal and neoplastic tissues of C3H mice treated with nitrogen mustard (HN2) in vivo. Tissue samples for analysis of the cross-links were prepared 1 h after injection with HN2 to minimize the(More)
A panel of 5 different breast-cancer and 2 other cancer extracts was used to clarify the false-negative responses in patients with Stage I and II breast cancer and the false-positive responses in control subjects. Most patients with Stage I and II breast cancer who had an initially negative LAI response were positive when tested against the panel. The false(More)
