Therapy-induced cellular senescence (TCS), characterized by prolonged cell cycle arrest, is an in vivo response of human cancers to chemotherapy and radiation. Unfortunately, TCS is reversible for a subset of senescent cells, leading to cellular reproliferation and ultimately tumor progression. This invariable consequence of TCS recapitulates the clinical(More)
Therapy-induced accelerated cellular senescence (ACS) is a reversible tumor response to chemotherapy that is likely detrimental to the overall therapeutic efficacy of cancer treatment. To further understand the mechanism by which cancer cells can escape the sustained cell cycle arrest in ACS, we established a tissue culture model, in which the p53-null(More)
BACKGROUND Body (fat) mass has been shown to decrease following bright light treatment for overweight women, irrespective of their seasonal (light) dependence. It is not known if this is due to an (immediate) increase of metabolism. METHODS Ten women with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and 10 non-SAD women matched by age, body mass index, and(More)
Experiments were made on rats using step-through passive avoidance method to study the effect of the benzodiazepine medazepam (Mz) on the retention of the memory traces during tests on the 3rd hour, 24th hour and 7th day after training, as well as the influencing of this effect by the nootropic agents meclofenoxate (Mf), aniracetam (Anc) and Euclidan(More)
BACKGROUND Studies comparing the efficacy of dawn simulation to conventional bright light for the treatment of seasonal affective disorder (in parallel groups) have yielded conflicting results. This crossover study investigated treatment outcomes and long-term treatment preference. METHODS Forty winter depressives were treated for a week with bright light(More)
