Endogenous oxidative DNA damage caused by normal cellular processes may play a vital role in carcinogenesis. To directly test the hypothesis that antioxidants will protect DNA from oxidative damage in vivo, Big Blue((R)) mice were fed either a control diet (66 IU vitamin E/kg diet) or a high-dose vitamin E diet containing 1000 IU vitamin E/kg diet of(More)
Three carriers of human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) with Graves' disease are reported. All three cases were complicated with uveitis, and one also showed chronic arthropathy. Anti-HLTV-I antibody was found in the serum by the particle agglutination method and western blotting, and HTLV-I proviral DNA was detected in peripheral lymphocytes by the(More)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive paralytic disorder caused by motor neuron degeneration. A similar disease phenotype is observed in mice overexpressing a mutant human hSOD1 gene (G93A, 1Gurd(1)). Mice transgenic for lacI (Big Blue) and human mutant (1Gurd(1), Mut hSOD1) or wild type (2Gur, Wt hSOD1) SOD1 genes were used to examine(More)
