Mammary epithelium and surrounding stroma have been maintained in an explant system for 1 to 6 months and subsequently xenografted into athymic nude mice. The morphological characteristics of 26 cases of normal human mammary epithelium in long-term explant culture were described, using high-resolution light and electron microscopy. Normal human breast(More)
Rhesus monkeys neonatally inoculated with Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (M-PMV) and virus-infected cells frequently developed viral and/or bacterial pneumonia and enteritis. Three characteristic hematologic patterns occurred among the inoculated animals and correlated well with the probability of survival. Postmortem examination of the animals revealed(More)
We inoculated common marmosets (Callithrix Jacchus) with Herpesvirus ateles (HVA), Herpesvirus saimiri (HVS), and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). HVA-induced tumors contained several cell types, including giant cells reminiscent of the Sternberg-Reed cells observed in human Hodgkin's disease. HVS and EBV did not induce tumors, although HVS was present in(More)
Transfection of normal human bronchial epithelial (NHBE) cells with a plasmid carrying the ras oncogene of Harvey murine sarcoma virus (v-Ha ras) changed the growth requirements, terminal differentiation, and tumorigenicity of the recipient cells. One of the cell lines isolated after transfection (TBE-1) was studied extensively and shown to contain v-Ha ras(More)
Bronchi, pancreatic ducts, and colons from adult human were maintained as xenografts in congenitally athymic nude N:NIH(S) mice for 715, 145, and 89 days, respectively. After an ischemic crisis and revascularization of the human tissue, the epithelium regenerated to a normal differentiated morphology. The long-term survival of normal adult human epithelial(More)
