Endothelial cells of human capillary blood vessels at the blood-brain and other blood-tissue barrier sites express P-glycoprotein as detected by mouse monoclonal antibodies against the human multidrug-resistance gene product. This pattern of endothelial cell expression may indicate a physiological role for P-glycoprotein in regulating the entry of certain(More)
Data on 50 patients with multiple separate primary carcinomas of the lung are presented. Eighteen had synchronous tumors and 32 had metachronous tumors, the intervals between diagnoses varying from 4 months to 16 years. Histologic patterns in the two different carcinomas were the same in 31 patients, most commonly epidermoid, and they were different in 19(More)
Flow cytometry of heated sperm nuclei revealed a significant decrease in resistance to in situ denaturation of spermatozoal DNA in samples from bulls, mice, and humans of low or questionable fertility when compared with others of high fertility. Since thermal denaturation of DNA in situ depends on chromatin structure, it is assumed that changes in sperm(More)
We have characterized the normal human tissue distribution and tumor expression of the human multidrug resistance gene (MDR1) product P-glycoprotein (Pgp) by immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections of human normal and tumor tissues, using three mouse monoclonal antibodies (MAb) which recognize at least two different epitopes of Pgp. Pgp(More)
We assessed the effect of surgery on survival from stage I non-small-cell lung cancer based on data collected in these screening programs. The majority of patients diagnosed in each program were treated by surgical resection, but 5 percent of the Sloan-Kettering group, 21 percent of the Hopkins group and 11 percent of the Mayo group failed to receive(More)
Exposure of the Dunning R3327AT-3 rat prostatic carcinoma and SK-Mel-28 human melanoma, in vitro, to high energy shock waves resulted in a reduction in cell viability as determined by trypan blue exclusion and a decrease in the number of colonies formed in a clonogenic assay. Flow cytometric determination of DNA content in R3327AT-3 cells treated in vitro(More)
The laser-scanning cytometer (LSC) is a microscope-based cytofluorometer which has attributes of both flow and image cytometry. Laser-excited fluorescence emitted from fluorochromed individual cells on a microscope slide is measured at multiple wavelengths rapidly with high sensitivity and accuracy. Though the instrument has been available commercially for(More)
Selective DNA strand break induction by photolysis (SBIP) at sites that contain incorporated halogenated nucleotides has been recently proposed as a means of analyzing DNA replication and detecting proliferating cells. The presence of numerous in situ DNA strand breaks is also an inherent feature of apoptotic cells. The aim of the present study was to(More)
