Lobund-Wistar (L-W) rats are inherently susceptible to spontaneous and induced metastasizing adenocarcinomas in the prostate-seminal vesicle (P-SV) complex. L-W rats were fed soy protein isolates containing high isoflavones (genistein and daidzein) or low isoflavones to determine their effects on development of induced P-SV tumors in two stages of the(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to test for the influence of ascorbic acid on tumorigenicity and metastases of implanted PAIII prostate cancer adenocarcinoma cells in syngeneic LW rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hormone-refractory prostate cancer PAIII cells were implanted subcutaneously into immunologically intact, Lobund-Wistar (LW) rats. Intraperitoneal(More)
The purpose of this study was to characterize a system with which to study chromatin events associated with the repair of u.v. light-induced damage. Quiescent normal human fibroblasts were irradiated with u.v. and the ensuing chromatin events were visualized by inducing premature chromosome condensation in the treated cells. Treatment with u.v. induced the(More)
Over the course of 20 weeks, Sprague-Dawley rats developed intestinal tumors in response to an intraperitoneal injection of the acetate derivative of dimethylnitrosamine. The same agent did not induce tumors in Lobund-Wistar rats. The number of tumors was significantly smaller in rats given drinking water containing indomethacin (beginning 14 days after the(More)
Prostate adenocarcinoma-III (PA-III) cells deposited over the scapula of Lobund-Wistar (L-W) rats induced osteolytic and osteoplastic changes in that bone. The osteolytic process was prevented and interrupted by administrations of dichloromethylene diphosphonate (Cl2MDP); but the osteoplastic process, once initiated, continued. The latter process was(More)
Selected organisms with public health significance were placed in a reaction chamber for treatment by ozonation, by ozonation and sonication, by sonication, or by sonication during oxygenation. Vesicular stomatitis virus, encephalomyocarditis virus, GDVII virus, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Salmonella typhimurium, enteropathogenic(More)
