Photofrin-based photodynamic therapy (PDT) has recently been approved for palliative and curative purposes in cancer patients. It has been demonstrated that neutrophils are indispensable for its anti-tumour effectiveness. We decided to evaluate the extent of the anti-tumour effectiveness of PDT combined with administration of granulocyte colony-stimulating(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) can either promote angiogenesis (i.e., the formation of new blood vessels) in tumors by secreting tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) or inhibit angiogenesis by producing granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), which in turn stimulates production of the antiangiogenic protein plasminogen(More)
In this thesis, I designed and implemented the Multidatabase Browser and the Wrapper Generator. The Multidatabase Browser is a tool that allows a single query interface to heterogenous sources: relational databases and data published through the World Wide Web. The Browser is a front end application to the Context Interchange Network (COIN). Structured or(More)
