Intramucosal neutrophil infiltration is related to the activity of ulcerative colitis, and Th1 immunity is responsible for the onset of Crohn's disease. We examined the therapeutic effects of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rHuG-CSF) in the two types of 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis of five rat strains.(More)
Since recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) has been reported to induce immune deviation, we examined the effects of pretransplant treatment of recipients with rhG-CSF on heart allograft survival. Before heterotopic heart transplantation from DA to Lewis rats, recipients were given rhG-CSF (125microg/kg s.c. twice a day from day(More)
Pretransplant treatment of recipients with recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF, 250 microg/kg/day s.c. for 5 days) facilitates heart allograft acceptance in tacrolimus-treated rat recipients. We examined effectiveness of transfusion of in vivo rhG-CSF-treated blood since rhG-CSF induces immunoregulatory cells in human blood. DA(More)
BACKGROUND Because recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) is known to modulate function of antigen-presenting cells, we examined effects of pretransplant host treatment with rhG-CSF on allograft survival. METHODS In DA-to-Lewis rat heart transplantation, hosts were given pretransplant injections of rhG-CSF (250 microg/kg/day(More)
We report a rare case of the development of various tumors over a 16-year period after renal transplantation. A 56-year-old woman underwent renal transplantation using a US kidney. Immunosuppressive treatment consisted of a triple regimen of methylprednisolone, azathioprine, and mizoribine. Left breast cancer was diagnosed 9 years after the renal(More)
BACKGROUND Acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS) are devastating clinical syndromes associated with a high mortality rate. We examined the preventive effect of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) in a mouse ALI/ARDS model induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Mice were(More)
Recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) is an immunoregulatory drug whose effects include modulation of antigen-presentation. We investigated the potential ameliorative effect of pretreatment with rhG-CSF in a hapten-induced colitis animal model. Sprague-Dawley rats were given rhG-CSF (125 microg/kg subcutaneously twice a day for 5(More)
We examined the effects of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)-mobilized donor leukocyte infusion (G-DLI) on facilitation of allograft survival using heart transplantation from DA to Lewis rats that were transiently treated with tacrolimus (2 mg/kg i.m. on day 0). Other DA rats were given G-CSF (250 microg/kg/day s.c. from days -5 to 0), and(More)
This study was performed to retrospectively compare changes in the levels of total cholesterol, non-HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and immunosuppressive drugs, cyclosporine A and steroids in patients with living-relation renal transplants with those from non-heart-beating donors. We experienced 11 cases of kidney transplants from non-heart-beating donors(More)
Metastasis to the liver remains an important problem in the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal cancer. We examined the mechanism and effect on liver metastasis of in vivo interleukin-2 (IL-2) gene transfer to the liver. RCN-9 cells derived from F344 rat colon adenocarcinoma were injected into syngeneic rats via the ileocecal vein to induce liver(More)
