The murine monoclonal antibody (Mab) against human common epithelial ovarian carcinoma, CF511, was generated by immunising mice with human fetal tissue extract from early first trimester, followed by booster injection of an ovarian cancer cell line. Mab CF511 recognised the 600 kDa sialylated glycoprotein as different from previously known tumour(More)
A synthetic peptide containing the RGD (Arg-Gly-Asp) sequence is known to inhibit the attachment between cells and the extracellular matrix (ECM) in vitro, and also inhibit experimental pulmonary metastasis of murine melanoma cells in vivo. Prevention of peritoneal seeding by RGD-containing peptides has never previously been discussed. In this study, the(More)
A computer aided multivariate pattern analysis system (CAMPAS) OV-1, which consisted of 10 discriminant functions based on eight tumor markers including CA125, IAP, TPA, LDH, CRP, CEA, amylase and alkaline phosphatase was developed to effectively diagnose patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma. One hundred twenty-two patents with epithelial ovarian(More)
A 62-year-old woman with a complaint of abdominal distention underwent surgery to remove a tumor in her left ovary. The serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) level was 4,130 ng/ml. Histologically, the tumor was diagnosed as a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma with a small area of solid proliferation of tumor cells. The cells of the latter part were shown(More)
A concentration in sera of a new antigen CA125 related to cancer of the ovary was measured by radioimmunoassay which used a monoclonal antibody, and its usefulness as a tumor marker in the diagnosis of cancer of the ovary was investigated. The mean values for CA125 in sera of healthy controls (80 females) were 14.2 +/- 12.2 U/ml. Mean values for CA125 in(More)
Prognostic studies were performed on 17 cases with clear cell carcinoma of the ovary. The results are follows: 1) The average age was 45.9 years and ranging from 35 to 57 years. 2) Regarding the FIGO clinical stage, all of 5 patients with stage I and 3 of 5 with stage II survived over 2 years, while all of patients with stage III and 2 with stage IV were(More)
While the treatment of ovarian cancer has made remarkable progress in recent years, the chemotherapy of ovarian germ cell tumor has not as yet been fully established and remains to be improved. We investigated the effectiveness of a single-agent therapy with Vincristine (VCR), Actinomycin D (ACD), and Cyclophosphamide (CPM) against a human undifferentiated(More)
This study was provided biochemical findings on ascitic fluid following the treatment of patients with ovarian tumors. The results were as follows: LDH and LDH isozyme. The ascitic fluid from patients with germ cell tumors showed an LDH1 value of 38.8% with an H/M ratio of 2.82, which were significantly higher than those found in the benign tumor group(More)
