Camptothecin (CAM) and cisplatin (cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II), cis-Pt) were used as inducers of apoptosis in the mouse leukemic L1210 cells. Relatively high concentrations of 50 micromol cis-Pt and 50 micromol CAM, respectively, were used to induce the apoptotic DNA ladder. The simultaneous treatment of L1210 cells by the drug and pentoxifylline (PTX)(More)
Investigating the bioactivity of traditional medical remedies under the controlled conditions of a laboratory is an option to find additional applications, novel formulations or lead structures for the development of new drugs. The present work analysed the anti-neoplastic activity of increasing polar extracts of the rainforest plant Critonia morifolia(More)
Avemar (MSC) is a nontoxic fermented wheat germ extract, which has been shown to significantly improve the survival rate in patients suffering from various malignancies. We investigated its effects in sensitive and 5-FdUrd/Ara-C cross-resistant H9 human lymphoma cells. After 48 and 72 h of incubation, Avemar inhibited the growth of sensitive H9 cells with(More)
