Two synthetic analogs of neplanocin A, which were shown in a separate study to be inhibitors of S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase and devoid of substrate activity with adenosine kinase, were found in this study to inhibit vaccinia virus replication in murine L929 cells but to have reduced cytotoxicity compared with that of the parent compound. These results(More)
Gibbon ape leukaemia virus (GALV) and koala retrovirus (KoRV) share a remarkably close sequence identity despite the fact that they occur in distantly related mammals on different continents. It has previously been suggested that infection of their respective hosts may have occurred as a result of a species jump from another, as yet unidentified vertebrate(More)
A number of nitrosoureas and nitrosoamides have been compared with respect to mutagenicity for Salmonella typhimurium, in vitro cytotoxicity, in vivo toxicity and antitumor activity against murine L1210 leukemia, and chemical properties. Despite chemical similarities between the nitrosoureas and nitrosoamides, they show important differences in biological(More)
Blood loss during hepatic surgery leads to poor patient outcomes. This study investigates the hemostatic efficacy of a novel sealing hemostatic pad (polyethylene glycol-coated collagen, PCC) and a fibrin sealant pad (fibrin-thrombin coated collagen, FTC) in a leporine hepatic segmentectomy and a porcine hepatic abrasion model. A segmentectomy was used to(More)
