Recent studies have indicated that the development of cyclin-dependent kinase (cdk)2 inhibitors that deregulate E2F are a plausible pharmacological strategy for novel antineoplastic agents. We show here that 3-[1-(3H-Imidazol-4-yl)-meth-(Z)-ylidene]-5-methoxy-1,3-dihydro-indol-2-one (SU9516), a novel 3-substituted indolinone compound, binds to and(More)
PURPOSE Patients with early-stage, resectable, non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are at risk for recurrent disease, and 5-year survival rates do not exceed 75%. Angiogenesis inhibitors have shown clinical activity in patients with late-stage NSCLC, raising the possibility that targeting the vascular endothelial growth factor pathway in earlier-stage(More)
We have analyzed the ability of the physical substratum to modulate both the ultrastructural and protein synthetic characteristics of the Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) renal cell line. When MDCK cells were seeded on Millipore Millicell CM microporous membrane cell culture inserts they demonstrated a more columnar organization with an increase in cell(More)
Transthoracic needle biopsy of the indeterminate pulmonary nodule is a well-established, highly accurate, and minimally invasive diagnostic procedure. A pulmonary nodule in virtually any location is accessible to transthoracic needle biopsy. A solid understanding of special biopsy techniques enables the operator to overcome the commonly encountered(More)
Oxygen status and tissue dimensionality are critical determinants of tumor angiogenesis, a hallmark of cancer and an enduring target for therapeutic intervention. However, it is unclear how these microenvironmental conditions interact to promote neovascularization, due in part to a lack of comprehensive, unbiased data sets describing tumor cell gene(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to define the clinical and ultrastructure effects of ixabepilone (Ix), a microtubule-stabilizing chemotherapy agent on cutaneous sensory nerves and to investigate a potential mitochondrial toxicity mechanism. METHODS Ten breast cancer patients receiving Ix underwent total neuropathy score clinical (TNSc) assessment, distal leg skin(More)
Animal models have demonstrated the critical role of bone marrow-derived VEGFR1+ hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) and VEGFR2+ endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in metastatic progression. We explored whether these cells could predict relapse and response in breast cancer (BC) patients. One hundred and thirty-two patients with stages 1–4 BC were(More)
PURPOSE ONYX-015 is a genetically modified adenovirus with a deletion of the E1B early gene and is therefore designed to replicate preferentially in p53-mutated cells. A Phase II trial of intralesional ONYX-015 was conducted in patients with hepatobiliary tumors to determine the safety and efficacy of such a treatment. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN All patients had(More)
PURPOSE ONYX-015 is a chimeric, E1B-deleted adenovirus designed to replicate preferentially in p53-deficient tumor cells; however, little is understood about its actual replication potential in human tumors. We hypothesized that replication of a late viral gene, hexon, would demonstrate replication of virus in human tissues. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN In the(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously shown that glutamine synthetase protein and mRNA are concentrated in the crypt region of the rat small intestine and that the activity of this enzyme is highest around the time of weaning. This anatomical location and time of peak activity are sites and periods of active enterocyte differentiation. This led to our current(More)
