Increased levels of interleukin-1 (IL)-1, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), IL-6, and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) have been detected in inflamed pulp tissue. To gain further insight into the molecular pathogenesis of pulpitis, we investigated the effects of IL-1alpha or TNF-alpha and PGE2, either alone or in combination on IL-6 and cyclooxygenase (COX)-2(More)
Feline coronavirus (FCoV) varies greatly from causing subclinical or mild enteric infections to fatal feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). The open reading frame (ORF) 7b of FCoV has been speculated to play a determining role in virulence as deletions were found to be associated with avirulent viruses. To further clarify the correlation between this gene(More)
BACKGROUND Deguelin has both antiproliferation and antimetastasis activities. However, high-dose deguelin elicits many undesired side effects. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the low-dose deguelin can prevent the metastasis of oral cancer. METHODS The dose effects of deguelin on metastasis of oral cancer cells were analyzed by in(More)
BACKGROUND In lung cancer, uPA, its receptor (uPAR), and the inhibitors PAI-1 and PAI-2 of the plasminogen activator family interact with MMP-2 and MMP-9 of the MMP family to promote cancer progression. However, it remains undetermined which of these markers plays the most important role and may be the most useful indicator to stratify the patients by risk.(More)
Feline lower airway disease (FLAD) is a chronic respiratory disease of which there is a lack of information on functional assessment in current veterinary medicine. The purposes of this study were to investigate expiratory pattern and evaluate the diagnostic utility of functional parameters in cats with FLAD. Thirty-three client-owned cats (23 FLAD cats and(More)
Forty-four dogs with multicentric lymphoma were treated using a cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisolone (CHOP) induction protocol or treated using a cyclophosphamide, mitoxantrone, vincristine, and prednisolone (CMOP) induction protocol. There was no statistical difference in signalment and the presence of historical negative prognostic(More)
Combination chemotherapy, using cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone (CHOP), is the most commonly used treatment for canine lymphoma. Most affected dogs respond during the initial stages of chemotherapy, but many relapse. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the use of specific chemotherapy drugs and(More)
OBJECTIVES For the purpose of applying a barometric whole-body plethysmography (BWBP) device as a routine clinical tool in client-owned cats, the objective of this study was to evaluate the methodological importance of simultaneous visual inspection (SVI) of graphic tracing. METHODS To investigate the effect of SVI on the results obtained, 50 client-owned(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the antitumor effect of the chicken anemia virus (CAV) VP3 gene in canine mammary tumor (CMT) cells. SAMPLE POPULATIONS: Established primary canine cell lines that originated from epithelial cells of resected CMTs and nonneoplastic mammary gland epithelial (MGE) cells. PROCEDURES Expression vectors and lentiviral vectors encoding(More)
