The role of chronic infections, such as Helicobacter pylori (Hp), to produce sustained changes in host physiology remains controversial. In this study, we investigate whether the antigenic or bacterial content of the gut, after Hp eradication, influences the changes in gut function induced by chronic Hp infection. Mice were infected with Hp for 4 mo and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of UCN-01 (7-hydroxystaurosporine), a potent and selective protein kinase C inhibitor, on fractionated irradiation or daily chemotherapy; cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (cis-DDP) or 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in vivo. Radiosensitivity and chemosensitivity given in combination with UCN-01 were further studied in vitro to(More)
Cytotoxic effect of the monoclonal antibody to the epidermal growth factor receptor (anti-EGFR MAb) given alone or in combination with UCN-01, a selective protein kinase C inhibitor, was investigated in vitro. MDA-468 human breast cancer cells expressing both a large amount of EGF receptors and its ligand, transforming growth factor a, were used. A given(More)
We have examined the tumorigenicity and the level of extracellular matrix proteins in fibrosarcoma cells expressing low (SOD-L) and high (SOD-H) MnSOD activities as well as the fibrosarcoma cells transfected with the selectable marker alone (NEO). When the cells derived from each tumor cell line were injected into syngeneic mice., the number of tumor cells(More)
