It was intended to test the biological response (poly-ADP-ribosylation of cellular proteins) of a-particles from extracellular 211At for enhanced damage to human glioblastoma cells in vitro and to discuss its suitability for potential application in therapy of high-grade gliomas. Materials and Methods: Confluent cultures of human glioblastoma cells were(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) may influence the hemodynamic response to hemorrhage. To test this hypothesis, the NO synthesis inhibitor N omega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) was administered to conscious, dehydrated swine during a 37% blood volume hemorrhage and a 180 min recovery period without fluid resuscitation. L-NAME (.75 mg/kg bolus plus constant(More)
Sepsis is a complex medical condition characterized by a systemic inflammatory response in the setting of infection. We hypothesized that combining antibiotics plus an immunosuppressant would protect against the morbidity and mortality of polymicrobial sepsis in mice better than would antibiotics alone. We used a murine cecal-ligation-and-puncture model in(More)
6-125I-iodo-2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinol bis (diammonium phosphate) (6-125I-iodo-MNDP) has been synthesised and studied as the prototype of a class of potential radio-halogenated anti-cancer agents. The incorporated 125I provides Auger electron radiations which behave like high LET radiations in the treatment of tumours, though the accompanying X- and(More)
Although v-src, the oncogene of Rous sarcoma virus, has been shown to be capable of inducing lethal tumors at visceral sites distal to the primary tumor mass, the mechanisms opposing visceral tumor formation remain to be elucidated. In the present study, we show that visceral tumors, many of which represent a metastasis spawned by the primary mass, are(More)
