Over a period of three years, Salmonella dublin was isolated occasionally from the faeces of nine adult cattle in a closed dairy herd. The organism was also isolated from 12 of the samples collected after parturition; isolations were made from newborn calves on 11 occasions, from a vaginal swab once and from a milk sample once. Nine of the isolations from(More)
Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive malignancy with proclivity to early metastasis. High expression and activation of the collagenase matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) have been found in human pancreatic cancer tissues, being these increased levels of active MMP-2 correlated to tumor invasion and metastasis. Hypoxia and reoxygenation (H-R) are critical(More)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an inflammatory process characterized by airway mucus hypersecretion. Previous studies have reported that lipopolysaccharides (LPS) stimulate mucin 5AC (MUC5AC) production via epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in human airway cells. Moreover, this production was shown to depend on the expression and(More)
Cancer metastasis involves tumor cells invading the surrounding tissue. Remodeling of tissue barriers depends on the ability of tumor cells to degrade the surrounding collagen matrix and then migrate through the matrix defects. Epidermal growth factor (EGF) has been shown to regulate tumor cell invasion through activation of matrix metalloproteinase-2(More)
