The role of the immune response in the chemotherapeutic cure of an intact host with neoplasia is not well defined. We have previously shown that the addition of cyclosporin A to VP-16 therapy of BDF/1 mice with L1210 leukemia produces immunity to leukemia in long-surviving host animals. We now characterize this immunity as being tumor specific and related(More)
The records of twenty-one patients treated for pancreatic abscesses were reviewed. Pancreatitis developed following alcohol ingestion, operative procedures, biliary tract disease, ulcers, and undetermined causes. The clinical findings included abdominal pain in 19 patients (90%); fever in 18 (86%); tenderness in 18 (86%); and leukocytosis in 18 (86%).(More)
Bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cells (BPAEC) were cultured in vitro under a variety of conditions to investigate how metallothionein (MT) might participate in zinc homeostasis. Experimental conditions included 10% serum to ensure that the in vitro environment would be a better reflection of the in vivo situation than with protein-free medium. MT was(More)
PURPOSE Chemotherapy has demonstrated ability to generate tumor antigens secondary to induction of apoptosis, against which human leukocyte antigen-compatible, irradiated, related donor mononuclear cells may be administered with immune stimulation to activate antigen presenting and cytotoxic T cells, while minimizing risk of graft-versus-host disease(More)
2573 Background:This is a pilot study to determine the practicality of a new form of immunotherapy. The basic concept of this treatment is to grow cytotoxic T-cells and helper T-cells against the tumor in the patients themselves rather than in the laboratory. Standard chemotherapy is used to generate the tumor antigen, as the tumor cells undergo apoptosis.(More)
