In the present study, we investigated the signaling pathways implicated in the induction of apoptosis by two modified nucleosides, 5-phenylselenyl-methyl-2′-deoxyuridine (PhSe-T) and 5-methylselenyl-methyl-2′-deoxyuridine (MeSe-T), using human cancer cell lines. The induction of apoptosis was associated with proteolytic activation of caspase-3 and -9, PARP(More)
Autologous transplantation is increasingly being used to treat patients with multiple myeloma (MM). Recently, peripheral blood progenitor cell (PBPC) harvest have been preferred over autologous bone marrow (BM) harvests due to reduced engraftment time, ease of attainment, and presumptive reduction of occult tumor involvement. To resolve this latter(More)
The immunoglobin heavy chain variable region (VH) gene usage in multiple myeloma (MM) has not been reported, although a few studies have incidentally identified the VH gene rearranged in small cohorts of MM patients. We used a reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction based technique to analyze the VH gene usage in MM. The VH sequences were obtained(More)
Busulfan has a narrow therapeutic range, and in children, pharmacokinetic variability has been found to be high even after the use of intravenous (i.v.) busulfan. Recently, a reduced toxicity myeloablative regimen showed promising results, but the data of busulfan pharmacokinetics in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) using a targeted(More)
PURPOSE To investigate possible radiosensitizing activities of the well-known peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)γ ligand ciglitazone and novel PPARγ ligands CAY10415 and CAY10506 in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells. METHODS AND MATERIALS Radiosensitivity was assessed using a clonogenic cell survival assay. To investigate the(More)
