Formaldehyde (FA), which is an important chemical with a wide commercial use, has been classified as carcinogenic to humans by International Research on Cancer (IARC). The genotoxic and carcinogenic potential of FA has been documented in mammalian cells and in rodents. A recent evaluation by the E.U. Scientific Committee for Occupational Exposure Limits(More)
The widespread use of chemotherapy in the treatment of cancer has led to anxiety about the possible hazards to staff involved in the preparation and administration of cytotoxic agents. Careless handling of antineoplastic drugs may lead to exposure in detectable amounts by means of chemical or biological methods in the body fluids or cell samples but the(More)
The aim of this study was to comparatively investigate the effects of 5-azacytidine-C (5-Aza), trichostatin-A (TSA), and all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) on mRNA expressions of Na/I symporter (NIS), thyroglobulin (Tg), thyroid peroxidase (TPO), and thyroid stimulating hormone receptor (TSH-R), and radioiodine (RAI) uptake in cancer (B-CPAP) and normal(More)
Aims: Drug resistance is a major obstacle for a successful cancer therapy. Cell adhesion mediated drug resistance (CAM-DR) is a novel type of drug resistance and generated via interaction of cancer cells with the microenvironment. In this study, CAM-DR phenotype was analyzed in HL60 acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells. Materials and Methods: Fibronectin (FN)(More)
Homozygosity for HLA-DR53 confers increased susceptibility to major forms of leukemia. In childhood leukemia, this influence is male-specific. Two separate studies have shown a male-specific increase in the homozoygosity rate for HLA-DR53 in healthy adults. This finding was attributed to possible preferential transmission of HLA-DR53 towards male offspring.(More)
BACKGROUND Autologous blood transfusion is one of the approaches used for prevention of the undesirable immunomodulatory effects of homologous blood transfusion that can cause an increase in cancer recurrence and surgical site infections. On the other hand, the benefits of autologous blood transfusion in that respect are not yet clearly identified. In this(More)
