A monoclonal antibody CSLEX1 which reacts with sialosyl Lex but not with sialosyl Lea has been produced. The CSLEX1 antigen has a tissue distribution similar to that of Lex, appearing characteristically in the proximal tubules of the kidney and on granulocytes. It is tumor associated in that 14 of 34 (41%) of tumor lines tested reacted with the CSLEX1(More)
A new monoclonal antibody, CSLEX1, directed against sialylated Lewisx was tested in parallel with a monoclonal antibody, CSLEA1, directed against sialylated Lewisa antigen. In tests with a solid-phase radioimmune sandwich assay, the sialylated Lewisx monoclonal antibody detected sera from certain cancer patients that were negative with the sialylated Lewisa(More)
A new cell-binding inhibition assay to detect tumor-associated antigens in sera was developed. This assay determined that sialosylated Lewisx, as detected by the CSLEX1 monoclonal antibody, is present in the sera of 95% of patients with advanced lung adenocarcinomas. Sera with inhibition titers of 1:16 or higher were presumed to contain sialosylated Lewisx.(More)
A monoclonal antibody, CSTO-1, has been produced against a stomach adenocarcinoma-associated antigen. The antibody is cytotoxic to stomach, colon, and lung adenocarcinoma lines but is completely noncytotoxic to normal blood elements and leukemic cell lines. The monoclonal antibody reacts with tumor cell membranes in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and is(More)
To evaluate the involvement of lysophosphatidic acid receptor-1 (LPA1) gene alteration in pancreatic carcinogenesis, we investigated mutations in the LPA1 gene in hamster pancreatic duct adenocarcinomas (PDAs) and established cell lines. Female Syrian golden hamsters received 30 mg/kg of N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine (BOP) followed by repeated exposure to(More)
Sialylated Lewis (S-Lex) has been studied histologically and serologically in stomach cancer by the CSLEX1 monoclonal antibody. S-Lex was expressed in 73.9% of 46 stomach cancer tissues, 29.4% of metaplastic parts adjacent to cancer, and none of six gastric ulcer tissues including metaplasia. Serologically positive percentages were as follows: 26.0% of 100(More)
