A new technique to quantitate nucleoside phosphorylase (NP) activity in single or small numbers of counted visually selected cells is presented. Fibroblasts were cultivated on the plastic film bottom of culture dishes. After lyophilisation in situ, plastic film leaflets carrying a counted number of cells were cut out and tested for NP activity. Some(More)
Two cell lines with different in vitro growth characteristics were established from a single mucinous colonic adenocarcinoma. Epithelial cells of the line 5583-E demonstrated anchorage-dependent growth while those of line 5583-S were anchorage-independent and grew as multicellular floating spheroids. Both cell lines shared common characteristics with(More)
In several patients with different degrees of HPRT deficiencies, residual activities have been determined in both lysed and intact erythrocytes. No close correlation could be found between the degree of HPRT deficiency and the severity of the clinical expression. Unless HPRT activity in both intact and lysed erythrocytes was below detection level, the(More)
L1210 mouse leukemia cells were grown in a methylcellulose-based medium, and the inhibitory effect of methotrexate (MTX) on colony formation and its reversal were examined. The effect on colony formation was studied in order to compare the results with those obtained with normal mouse bone marrow cells grown in a similar manner in previous studies and in(More)
AIMS To compare the pharmacokinetic profile of intranasal alniditan during and outside migraine attacks, and to investigate the relationship between initial rise of alniditan plasma concentration, and headache improvement. METHODS Twenty-seven migraine patients (age: 18-65 years) were randomized to receive alniditan 2 mg or 4 mg, and investigated both(More)
Replacement of enriched CMRL 1066 medium by cell-free ascites from tumour patients in the human tumour clonogenic assay described by Hamburger and Salmon (1977) increased plating efficiency for ovarian cancer cells by a median of 8-fold (range 0.4-1012 fold). In 40 experiments, two cases had a lower plating efficiency when cultured in cell-free ascites, 10(More)
To evaluate long-term effects of contractile and mitogenic stimuli on the contractile reactivity of arterial smooth muscle, we measured the incorporation of the thymidine analogue 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdUrd) and mechanical responses in arterial segments that had been maintained in tissue culture. The experiments were performed on renal arteries that(More)
To treat cancer pain, physicians often decide to jump directly from step 1 of the World Health Organization (WHO) analgesic ladder to step 3. The use of transdermal fentanyl in patients with cancer pain who had either used no opioid before, or only codeine, is evaluated in the present trial. Both opioid-naive (N = 14) and codeine-using (N = 14) patients(More)
