Cyclo-oxygenase (COX)-2 expression correlates directly with highly aggressive and metastatic breast cancer, but the mechanism underlying this correlation remains obscure. We hypothesized that invasive human breast cancer cells that over-express COX-2 have the unique ability to differentiate into extracellular-matrix-rich vascular channels, also known as(More)
An evaluation was undertaken to determine the optimal method for testing the susceptibilities of 100 clinical isolates and two reference strains of Enterococcus spp. to vancomycin in vitro. Six testing methods were studied by using the following media and incubation times: agar screen with the Synergy Quad Plate (Remel, Lenexa, Kans.), an in-house-prepared(More)
A simplified, semiautomated, quantitative method to evaluate platelet procoagulant activity was evaluated on plasma that contained widely divergent concentrations of platelets. When fewer than 100,000 platelets/cu mm were present, excellent correlation between platelet concentration and clotting time was noted, with correlation best in the range 30,000 to(More)
