Vascular gene expression in nonneoplastic and malignant brain.
Malignant gliomas are uniformly lethal tumors whose morbidity is mediated in large part by the angiogenic response of the brain to the invading tumor. This profound angiogenic response leads toExpand

Scatter factor/hepatocyte growth factor protects against cytotoxic death in human glioblastoma via phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase- and AKT-dependent pathways.
We have shown recently that the multifunctional growth factor, scatter factor/hepatocyte growth factor (SF/HGF), and its receptor c-met enhance the malignancy of human glioblastoma through anExpand

Plasmalemmal Vesicle Associated Protein-1 (PV-1) is a marker of blood-brain barrier disruption in rodent models
BackgroundPlasmalemmal vesicle associated protein-1 (PV-1) is selectively expressed in human brain microvascular endothelial cells derived from clinical specimens of primary and secondary malignantExpand

Autologous glioma cell vaccine admixed with interleukin-4 gene transfected fibroblasts in the treatment of patients with malignant gliomas
BackgroundThe prognosis for malignant gliomas remains dismal. We addressed the safety, feasibility and preliminary clinical activity of the vaccinations using autologous glioma cells and interleukinExpand

Plasmalemmal Vesicle Associated Protein-1 Is a Novel Marker Implicated in Brain Tumor Angiogenesis
Purpose:Plasmalemmal vesicle associated protein-1 (PV-1) is up-regulated in the endothelium of human glioblastoma. We sought to further characterize the expression pattern of PV-1 in human brainExpand

Vascular gene expression patterns are conserved in primary and metastatic brain tumors
Malignant primary glial and secondary metastatic brain tumors represent distinct pathological entities. Nevertheless, both tumor types induce profound angiogenic responses in the host brainExpand

Interstitial taxol delivered from a biodegradable polymer implant against experimental malignant glioma.
Taxol is a novel antitumor agent with demonstrated efficacy against ovarian, breast, and non-small cell lung cancers in Phase II clinical trials, but which has been shown not to cross the blood-brainExpand

A new subarachnoid hemorrhage grading system based on the Glasgow Coma Scale: a comparison with the Hunt and Hess and World Federation of Neurological Surgeons Scales in a clinical series.
OBJECTIVE Although the Hunt and Hess Scale (HHS) and World Federation of Neurological Surgeons Scale (WFNSS) are the most widely used subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) grading systems, neither system hasExpand
