From May 1979 to August 1984, 112 infrahyoid myocutaneous flaps (IHMCFs) were used for reconstruction of the tongue after resection of lingual carcinoma (67 flaps in 63 consecutive cases) and for repair of defects after resection of carcinomas of buccal mucosa (23 cases), floor of mouth (8 cases), parotid gland (7 cases), and other malignancies (7 cases).(More)
An anticolorectal carcinoma antibody, 17-IA, that is of gamma 2a isotype and has been used in previous immunotherapy trials, binds to an antigen on most human colon tumors. This antigen is destroyed by the fixative and embedding procedures employed for routine histologic evaluation of tissues. It can be demonstrated by the avidin/biotin-labelled peroxidase(More)
The immunoreactivity of a panel of monoclonal antibodies (MoAb) was studied in a series of patients with colorectal carcinomas to test the association of antigen expression with other parameters such as histopathologic stage, differentiation, and clinical outcome. Low-level binding to normal tissue and high-level binding to malignant tissue were observed(More)
To assess the change in concentrations of circulating gastrointestinal cancer-associated antigens in response to therapy, we analyzed the sera of patients with hepatic metastasis from colorectal carcinoma who were treated with intrahepatic arterial chemotherapy. Serial serum samples were assessed for the tumor-associated antigens, carcinoembryonic antigen(More)
The potential of stem cells in regenerative medicine, developmental biology, and drug discovery has been well documented. For example, stem cells have the extraordinary ability of self-renewal, and also give rise to many specialized cells. It is clear that stem cell technology has revolutionized our understanding of modern biology and medicine and provided(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) produced against determinants A and B of the human ABO blood group system and against the Lea and Leb determinants of the Lewis (Le) blood group system detected these determinants on molecules released by cultured cells of human colorectal, gastric and/or pancreatic carcinoma (Ca) but not by a variety of other cells maintained(More)
