OBJECTIVES To report the concentration of blood cells and selected growth factors in canine autologous conditioned plasma (ACP). METHODS The density of blood cells in whole blood (WB), ACP and standard plasma preparation (SP) of 10 healthy mature dogs was determined. In both ACP and SP, the concentration of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), epidermal(More)
Single chain- urokinase (scu-PA) is the proenzyme of the plasminogen activator urokinase (tcu-PA). In human blood scu-PA is of great stability. Activated phagocytes generate large amounts of single chain- urokinase and of reactive oxidants (chloramines and HOCl). Since these cells participate in physiologic fibrinolysis, we were interested in the(More)
Belgium. Belgium arguably has the broadest research exemption of all the countries examined in this study. Under Article XI.34, §1, b) of the Code of Economic Law the exclusive rights deriving from a patent do not extend to “acts on and/or with the patented invention for scientific purposes.” The research exemption under Belgian patent law therefore covers(More)
The activity of O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase was determined in fibroblast cultures from 45 patients with lung cancer, 39 patients with cutaneous malignant melanoma, and 29 healthy controls. This enzyme is a critical parameter for the capacity to repair O6-methylguanine (O6-mGua) adducts in DNA, and a decreased activity might therefore be(More)
