We evaluated the best route of administration of TNP-470, an angiogenesis inhibitor, by comparing the anti-tumour effects and toxicity following injection via the hepatic artery, the portal vein, or the jugular vein in a rabbit model of liver metastases. Following the injections of 1 x 10(6) VX2 carcinoma cells into the portal vein of rabbits, 50 mg of(More)
We examined hepatic artery ligation combined with an angiogenesis inhibitor, TNP-470, in the treatment of VX2 tumour inoculated into the liver of rabbits. Effects on tumour growth were correlated with arterial collateral development in this system. Three treatment methods were compared: (1) the left hepatic artery was ligated at the liver hilum (ligation(More)
We used a fluorescence differential display-PCR (FDD-PCR) technique to analyze the genes expressed in mouse brains collected at nine different developmental stages ranging from 3 days to 15 months after birth, and 5 age-dependently expressed genes were found. Age-dependent expression of each of these 5 genes was confirmed by quantitative real-time PCR(More)
