Intestinal mucosal cells from the rat have been isolated by a new technique involving intravascular perfusion of an intestinal segment with collagenase. Detached cells were flushed from the intestinal lumen with a second perfusion circuit containing an oxygenated buffered solution with 1% bovine serum. Sequential collection of cells at intervals during the(More)
The metabolism of chlorpromazine by microsomes in vitro has been examined with extracts from normal liver and small intestinal mucosa of man and guinea pigs. A GC-MS approach has been utilized to measure primary metabolites generated by these extracts, including the S-oxide, N-oxide, 7-hydroxyl, desmethyl, and didesmethyl species. In short term incubations(More)
Heme oxygenase (HO) activity oxidizes heme, releasing carbon monoxide; heme iron; and biliverdin, which is converted to bilirubin by biliverdin reductase. Inducible HO-I expression is a marker of oxidative stress in mammalian cells, while noninducible HO-II contributes to basal HO activity. HO-I and HO-II activities are implicated in cellular antioxidant(More)
To assess the association between symptomatic relapse of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and superinfection with enteropathogenic microorganisms, we determined prospectively the incidence of infections with enteropathogenic bacteria, protozoa, and helminths in patients with confirmed longstanding IBD. Sixty-four patients with IBD (49 with Crohn's disease(More)
Fifty-one evaluable patients with histologically proven metastatic melanoma and at least one skin metastasis were treated intralesionally with interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha). Twenty-six of the patients were given highly purified natural IFN-alpha 6 Mio. IU three times per week. Twenty-five patients were given 10 Mio. IU three times per week of a recombinant(More)
