β Amyloid, present in senile plaques, has been related largely to neuronal loss in the brain of patients with Alzheimer's disease. However, how neurons respond to β amyloid insults is still poorly understood. Here we show that β amyloid increases somatostatin and cortistatin gene expression mainly through an increase in histone 3 lysine 4 methylation(More)
Although continuous hepatic artery infusions (CHAI) of (FUDR) Floxuridine have been effective in reducing the size of colorectal hepatic metastases the toxicity of the infusions have been high with almost a quarter of the patients developing biliary sclerosis. Techniques to lower toxicity, yet continue the beneficial antitumor effects, are being(More)
Long term continuous hepatic artery infusion of FUDR was carried out in 34 rats. In the animals who received a constant infusion schedule of 15 mg/kg/day all died of toxicity with a mean survival of 9.3 days. If the pattern of the continuous infusion was changed so that over 60% of the infusion was given during the hours of 3pm to 9pm than all of the(More)
