The purpose of this study was to determine whether the implantation of human prostate cancer cells into the prostates of nude mice and their subsequent growth there can be used to select variants with increasing metastatic potential. PC-3M and LNCaP cells were injected into the prostates of athymic mice. Tumors from the prostate or lymph nodes were(More)
Exposure to heterocyclic amines may increase prostate cancer risk. Human sulfotransferase 1A1 (SULT1A1) is involved in the bioactivation of some dietary procarcinogens, including the N-hydroxy metabolite of the food-borne heterocyclic amine, 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo(4,5-b) pyridine. This study compares a polymorphism in the SULT1A1 gene, SULT1A1(More)
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States,but the precise molecular events leading to prostate carcinogenesis are not well understood. We isolated histologically defined cell populations from prostate cancer and its preinvasive lesions using laser capture microdissection, and performed genetic analysis on(More)
The human cytochrome P450 3A subfamily of enzymes is involved in the metabolism of steroid hormones, carcinogens, and many drugs. A cytosine-to-guanine polymorphism in CYP3A43 results in a proline-to-alanine substitution at codon 340. Although the functional significance of this polymorphism is unknown, we postulate that the substitution of proline, an(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether the expression level of several metastasis-regulating genes correlates with the metastatic potential of human prostate cancer cells implanted into the prostate of nude mice. The steady-state mRNA expression levels for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR; growth), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and(More)
We examined the expression level of several genes that regulate different steps of metastasis in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded archival specimens of primary human colon carcinomas from patients with at least 5 years of follow-up. The expression of epidermal growth factor receptor, basic fibroblast growth factor, type IV collagenase, E-cadherin, and(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether stable differences in apoptosis sensitivity were selected for in nonmetastatic and metastatic variants of the LNCaP human prostate carcinoma line that had been isolated from tumors grown orthotopically in the prostate glands and regional lymph nodes of nude mice. The nonmetastatic LNCaP-Pro5 cells were(More)
The renal sinus is the fatty compartment located within the confines of the kidney not delineated from the renal cortex by a fibrous capsule. Because it contains numerous veins and lymphatics, invasion into this compartment may permit dissemination of a tumor otherwise regarded as renal-limited. Thirty-one consecutive renal carcinomas were studied: 22 clear(More)
PURPOSE Invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the penis occurs on the glans, prepuce, glans and prepuce, coronal sulcus and shaft. Penile squamous cell carcinoma subsequently invades local structures, corpora cavernosa and the urethra, and metastasizes to the inguinal lymph nodes. Invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the penis usually requires total or partial(More)
We determined whether the IFN-beta gene can be used to suppress angiogenesis, tumor growth, and metastasis of human prostate cancer cells growing in the prostate of nude mice. Highly metastatic PC-3M human prostate cancer cells were engineered to constitutively produce murine IFN-beta subsequent to infection with a retroviral vector containing murine(More)
