Targeting supraspinal pain control centers by gene transfer is known to induce sustained analgesia. In this study, we evaluated the effects of injecting a Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 vector which expresses enkephalin (HSV-ENK vector) in the lateralmost part of the caudal ventrolateral medulla (VLMlat), a pain control center that exerts mainly descending(More)
The survival of viral mediated lymphomas depends upon constitutive nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) activity. AIDS-related human herpesvirus type 8-associated primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) responds poorly to chemotherapy and is almost invariably fatal. We have previously demonstrated that the antiviral combination of interferon alpha (IFN-alpha) and(More)
The antiviral compound azidothymidine (AZT), alone or in combination with other agents, induces apoptosis in early-passage, Epstein-Barr virus-positive Burkitt lymphoma (EBV+ BL) lines and has clinical activity in EBV+ BL. We report here a mechanism of AZT's antitumor activity. The nuclei of these cells contain activated nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB)(More)
