This report summarizes the pharmacokinetics in humans of recombinant interleukin 2 (IL-2) given as an i.v. bolus, i.v. or i.p. infusion, and i.m. or s.c. injection. Immediately after an i.v. bolus the serum IL-2 level equals the dose divided by the plasma volume, in a typical human 650 units/ml for a dose of 10(6) units/m2. The level initially decreases(More)
BACKGROUND Anecdotal animal and human studies have implicated the symptomatic and neuroprotective roles of niacin in Parkinson's disease (PD). Niacin has a high affinity for GPR109A, an anti-inflammatory receptor. Niacin is also thought to be involved in the regulation of circadian rhythm. Here we evaluated the relationships among the receptor, niacin(More)
The purpose of this study is to predict the location of radial nerve (RN) utilizing palpable anatomic landmarks. Thirty-four paired upper limbs were dissected. The RN was localized: (1) at the humeral spiral groove (SG), (2) lateral intermuscular septum (LIS), and (3) at its' division into the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) and radial sensory nerve(More)
Recombinant human interleukin 2 (rIL-2) was administered by s.c. injection daily, 5 days/week to patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma in an escalating dose regimen. Fifteen patients were entered in this study and are evaluable for toxicity with one patient not evaluable for response because of lack of measurable disease. The patient population had(More)
The sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) transporter Spns2 regulates myocardial precursor migration in zebrafish and lymphocyte trafficking in mice. However, its function in cancer has not been investigated. We show here that ectopic Spns2 expression induced apoptosis and its knockdown enhanced cell migration in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells.(More)
A variety of solid and hematological human tumors and normal human bone marrow specimens were assayed for colony formation in a short-term soft-agar culture system. The effect of human fibroblast, lymphoid, and myeloid interferons on inhibition of colony formation was assessed. The effect of interferon on colony formation formed a continuum from complete(More)
PURPOSE We have previously reported that a DNA vaccine encoding prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) could elicit PAP-specific T cells in patients with early recurrent prostate cancer. In the current pilot trial, we sought to evaluate whether prolonged immunization with regular booster immunizations, or "personalized" schedules of immunization determined using(More)
A 65-year-old male, Parkinson's disease patient, was evaluated for GPR109A expression, niacin index, UPDRS scale, handwriting test, and quality of sleep with and without niacin treatment. The evaluation was repeated 3 months after niacin was stopped. Niacin modulated the abovementioned parameters and showed the overall improvement without side effects.
Stress adaptation effect provides cell protection against ischemia induced apoptosis. Whether this mechanism prevents other types of cell death in stroke is not well studied. This is an important question for regenerative medicine to treat stroke since other types of cell death such as necrosis are also prominent in the stroke brain apart from apoptosis. We(More)
