To test our hypothesis that Cyclooyxgenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors would stop the growth of breast and prostate cancer cells in vitro, two breast (MCF-7, ZR75-1) and two prostate cancer cell lines (PC-3, DU145) were treated with rofecoxib (Vioxx) or NS398. Cell growth was measured by MTT at 24 and 72 hours. Statistical analysis was performed by ANOVA.(More)
Two classes of molecules were designed and synthesized based on a 6-CH(3) cyclopenta[d]pyrimidine scaffold and a pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine scaffold. The pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidines were synthesized by reacting ethyl 2-cyano-4,4-diethoxybutanoate and acetamidine, which in turn was chlorinated and reacted with the appropriate anilines to afford 1 and 2.

This study investigated the use of alkaline hydrolysis at ambient temperature for inactivation of selected fish pathogens in fish tissues under conditions approximating those that are likely to be found in the aquaculture industry. Infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) and Lactococcus garvieae have been determined in a previous study to be the most(More)
Gram-positive cocci recovered from diseased rainbow trout from a farm in England were characterized by different methods, including pulsed field gel electrophoresis, as virulent Lactococcus garvieae serogroup 2 (pulsotype A1). Groups of rainbow trout were kept at a range of temperatures and injected intraperitoneally (i.p.) with one of the UK isolates, L.(More)
Disposal of fish by-products in the European Community must comply with Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 which categorizes animal by-products according to risk, and specifies methods of disposal of by-products according to that risk. There is provision under the regulation for composting or ensiling to be used for by-products from aquatic animals. Biosecurity(More)
