A novel analogue of nitrosoureas, 2-chloroethyl-3-sarcosinamide-1-nitrosourea (SarCNU), has demonstrated increased anticancer effects in vitro and in vivo. Our previous work suggested that SarCNU enters cells via the extraneuronal monoamine transporter (EMT), that contributes to its enhanced cytotoxicity. In the present study, comparative activities of(More)
Detection and characterization of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) may reveal insights into the diagnosis and treatment of malignant disease. Technologies for isolating CTCs developed thus far suffer from one or more limitations, such as low throughput, inability to release captured cells, and reliance on expensive instrumentation for enrichment or subsequent(More)
Treatment of malignant brain tumors with chloroethylnitrosoureas (CENUs) in addition to surgical resection and radiotherapy remains the foundation of glioma therapy. However, the clinical response to CENUs is at best modest. A novel analogue of nitrosoureas, 2-chloroethyl-3-sarcosinamide-1-nitrosourea (SarCNU), as compared to the standard CENU,(More)
Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability. Little is known about the effects of stroke on cognitive deficits. The subtle nature of cognition and its respective domains in areas such as working memory and attention can make this difficult to diagnose and treat. We aimed to establish a model of focal ischemia that targets the prefrontal cortex (PFC)(More)
