The failure of N-ethylretinamide and N-(2-hydroxyethyl)retinamide to inhibit the incidence or severity of bladder carcinoma in female Fischer rats initiated with N-[4-(5-nitro-2-furyl)-2-thiazolyl]formamide supports the concept that the inhibition of bladder carcinogenesis by natural and synthetic retinoids is carcinogen-class specific.
The failure of 13-cis-retinoic acid to inhibit either the incidence or severity of bladder carcinoma in female Fischer rate initiated with N-[4-(5-nitro-2-furyl)-2-thiazolyl]formamide (FANFT) suggests that inhibition of bladder carcinogenesis by natural and synthetic retinoids is carcinogen-class specific, and adds an element of complexity to approaches in(More)
Environmental factors are implicated in the development of Parkinson's disease (PD). We have investigated on the role of molecular mimicry between HSV1 and α-synuclein that could foster the progression of PD. The antibody response against homologous peptides in PD patients and healthy controls was evaluated, showing that these antibodies are highly(More)
In Parkinson's disease (PD) ZnT proteins play an important role. Zinc is a co-factor of numerous enzymes and stabilizes the tertiary structure of several proteins. Nothing is known about previous infections mediated by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP). We evaluated if a previous infection with MAP could induce the production of antibodies(More)
