A 6.4-fold cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (CDDP) resistant human small cell lung carcinoma cell line (GLC4-CDDP) was developed to study acquired CDDP resistance in vitro. Compared to the sensitive cell line (GLC4), the GLC4-CDDP showed an increase in doubling time and a decrease in cloning efficiency, cellular size, double minutes per cell, cellular(More)
Cell lines derived from Hodgkin's disease may provide a clue to the nature of Sternberg-Reed cells. In the current study, the establishment of an Epstein-Barr-virus-negative lymphoblastoid cell line, derived from the pleural fluid of a patient with the nodular sclerosis type of Hodgkin's disease, is described. The morphologic and immunologic cell marker(More)
An increased colonic epithelial proliferation rate and an increase of the cryptal proliferative zone are probable markers of increased susceptibility to colonic cancer. In this study an immunohistochemical method using 5-bromo-deoxyuridine (BrdUrd) to measure the proliferation rate of colonic mucosa in vitro was used. Fresh endoscopic colonic biopsy(More)
LCT-1, LCT-2 and LCT-5 were assessed in uninjured rats and rats subjected to a cortical freezing injury or middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion. Apart from animals receiving no treatment, other uninjured or injured animals received methylprednisolone (2 or 30 mg/kg) or the 21-aminosteroid U-74389F (10 mg/kg) one day and 2 hours before killing. The animals(More)
In cell lines of human small cell carcinoma of the lung (SCCL) and in all subclones of one of the cell lines, cells were observed which completely interiorized other cells, leading to death of the interiorized cells and sometimes to complete autodestruction of the cultures. This phenomenon, which we have called "cannibalism," is also observed in fresh tumor(More)
We have studied the expression of lamins A and C (A-type lamins) in a lung carcinoma cell line using type-specific monoclonal antibodies. Using immunofluorescence and immunoblotting studies it was noted that several irregularities in lamin expression exist in the cell line GLC-A1, derived from an adenocarcinoma. First, the expression of the A-type lamins(More)
The expression of intermediate filament proteins in classic and variant-type small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) cell lines was studied using immunocytochemical techniques, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting assays. Classic SCLC cell lines contain cytokeratin proteins but no neurofilaments. In contrast, variant cell lines do not contain(More)
Two new, good growing cell lines (GLC-8, GLC-11) have been established from biopsies of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Tumor biopsies were procured by rigid bronchoscopy from tumor recurrences at the site of the primary lesions. Both tumors were clinically resistant to chemotherapy. Cytogenetic analysis revealed deletions in the short arm of chromosome 3.(More)
