It has been demonstrated that the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene, the normal human counterpart of the viral erb-B oncogene is amplified and overexpressed in over 50% of human malignant gliomas (HMGs). In the present study, analysis of the immunohistological staining characteristics of 57 HMGs using an anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody (mab) showed(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the ability of ErbB inhibitors to reduce the growth of vestibular schwannoma (VS) xenografts. METHODS Vestibular schwannoma xenografts were established in the interscapular fat pad in nude mice for 4 weeks. Initially, a small cohort of animals was treated with the ErbB2 inhibitor trastuzumab or saline for 2 weeks. Animals also(More)
B cells can either differentiate in germinal centers or in extrafollicular compartments of secondary lymphoid organs. Here we show the migration properties of B cells after differentiation in murine peripheral lymph node infected with mouse mammary tumor virus. Naive B cells become activated, infected, and carry integrated retroviral DNA sequences. After(More)
Using linker-scanning mutagenesis we had previously identified four elements within the MMTV LTR which are necessary for transcriptional stimulation by glucocorticoid hormones. Two of them overlapped with regions to which the glucocorticoid receptor binds in vitro. The third element contained a NF-I binding site, and the fourth the TATA box. Here we show(More)
We have cloned circular unintegrated mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) DNA from infected rat hepatoma cells in bacteriophage lambda. Seven independent clones containing MMTV DNA of homogeneous length of 9 kb (five) or 10 kb (two) were identified. The five 9 kb clones had identical restriction maps consistent with that of 9 kb unintegrated DNA; the other two(More)
The capacity to detect t(14;18) breakpoints in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) peripheral blood and bone marrow was studied by DNA PCR. We studied 33 patients with follicular lymphoma (FL) (Working Formulation subtypes B, C, D) and 38 patients with intermediate-grade NHL (subtypes F, G). In the FL subgroup, 86% of the morphologically-positive bone marrow(More)
