Experiments were performed in animals to evaluate 4,5,6,7-tetrachloro-2-(2 dimethylaminoethyl)-isoindoline dimethochloride, (Su-3088), as an orally effective ganglion blocking drug. These demonstrated reduction of blood pressure, suppression of vasopressor reflexes and potentiation of the pressor action of epinephrine. Neostigmine deblocked drug effects and(More)
In a V-2 model of solitary hepatic metastasis, residual tumor was histologically identified in the treatment field in only three of 14 (21%) animals subjected to microsphere embolization of tumor arterioles plus focal (43 degrees C, 40 min) hyperthermia compared with seven of ten (70%) subjected to focal (43 degrees C, 40 min) hyperthermia alone (P less(More)
Though MR spectroscopy has long been used to analyze the structure of organic compounds in solution, interest in applying it to the study of biologic systems has been slow in evolving because of past problems with spectral resolution in solids and gels. Renewed interest in this area has been stimulated both by the rapid growth of MR imaging as a clinical(More)
Values of inhibition constants, Ki, for a family of structurally related, competitive inhibitors of calf spleen purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP) have been determined employing both inosine as substrate and a manual assay and 2-amino-6-mercapto-7-methylpurine ribonucleoside (MESG) as substrate and a robot-based enzyme kinetics facility. Several of the(More)
Proton NMR spectroscopy and imaging of human breast tissue have provided new methods in studying breast carcinomas. Continuous wave proton NMR spectroscopy in this study is able to discriminate breast carcinomas from normal breast tissue on the basis of the integrated area under the water and lipid peaks, width at half height of the water peak, and chemical(More)
Microwave devices have been developed for rapidly inactivating brain enzymes by focusing the power output into the heads of small laboratory animals. The rapid inactivation achieved prevents postmortem changes and permits the measurement of neurochemicals such as acetylcholine at concentrations close to those obtained in vivo. The technique promises the(More)
A hybrid radiofrequency heating system previously reported to produce highly focused heating patterns at less than or equal to 10 cm depth in phantom models was utilized to selectively heat hypervascular, heat resistant rabbit V-2 tumors implanted in the left hindlimb. Spheroidal heating patterns 3 to 4 cm in diameter with minimal temperatures of 43 degrees(More)
