The effect of multiple hyperthermia and the kinetics of thermal resistance were studied in experimental murine tumors. A spontaneous C3Hf mouse mammary carcinoma, MCa had a chemically-induced fibrosarcoma, FAa-1, were used. Assay methods included determination of the TCD50, i.e., the treatment time to yield a tumor control in half the treated animals and TG(More)
It has been demonstrated in vitro and in vivo that hyperthermia can enhance the cytotoxicity of some chemotherapeutic agents. This paper summarizes the authors' own laboratory studies on the effect of chemotherapeutic agents given at elevated temperatures, experimental results obtained using animal tumour systems in other laboratories, and clinical trials(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM In some instances of porcelain restoration, refinishing is inevitable. In terms of plaque accumulation on porcelain, refinishing could be a substitute method for glazing. PURPOSE This study compared the amount of adhesion of plaque components (bacterial cells and glucans) on porcelain disks with various degrees of surface roughness to(More)
A rare case of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is reported with a review of the literature. A 40-year-old Japanese woman had suffered from RRP since 1 year of age. She developed a pulmonary squamous papilloma with a thin-walled cavity, which was suspected as being lung carcinoma. The trachea and bronchi around the tumor were intact, and no(More)
Effect of pretransplantation hyperthermia of tumor bed on tumor growth was studied. Experimental tumors were isotransplants of a fibrosarcoma which arose spontaneously in C3Hf/Sed mice. The pretransplantation hyperthermia was given at 43.5 degrees fro 120 min by immersing the mouse foot into a constant temperature water bath. This treatment resulted in a(More)
The radiation sensitivity of a weakly immunogenic spontaneous fibrosarcoma of the C3Hf/Sed mouse (designated FSa-II) was assessed by three in vivo cell survival methods: end-point dilution (TD50) assay, lung colony (LC) assay, and agar diffusion chamber (ADC) assay. The hypoxic fraction of this tumour was also determined by the ADC method. Although there(More)
A mouse fibrosarcoma cell line (FSa-II), which exhibits low endogenous levels of manganese superoxide dismutase, was transfected with a human manganese superoxide dismutase complementary DNA. Fifty clones were screened for manganese superoxide dismutase activity by the superoxide dismutase activity gel assay. Activity of the positive clones was measured by(More)
The effect of an i.p. injection of glucose on the thermal response of murine tissues was studied. Animal tumors were early generation isotransplants of a spontaneous fibrosarcoma, FSa-II. Tumors were transplanted into the foot pad, and hyperthermia was given by immersing the foot into a constant-temperature water bath. The tumor and normal tissue responses(More)
We have examined the tumorigenicity and the level of extracellular matrix proteins in fibrosarcoma cells expressing low (SOD-L) and high (SOD-H) MnSOD activities as well as the fibrosarcoma cells transfected with the selectable marker alone (NEO). When the cells derived from each tumor cell line were injected into syngeneic mice., the number of tumor cells(More)
