Biological resources (cells, tissues, bodily fluids or biomolecules) are considered essential raw material for the advancement of health-related biotechnology, for research and development in life sciences, and for ultimately improving human health. Stored in local biobanks, access to the human biological samples and related medical data for transnational(More)
Forty-six patients with ovarian carcinoma who received single drug cisplatin chemotherapy were evaluated for the antiemetic efficacy of two different doses of metoclopramide. Each patient received during the first two courses a 4-hour continuous infusion of either 8 or 0.8 mg/kg in a random order. Total protection from emesis was achieved in 12 (26%) of the(More)
The effects of single-dose irradiation (5.0-25.0 Gy) on the vascular structure, i.e., the vascular network architecture, of a human melanoma grown in athymic nude mice were studied. The vessels were filled with a radio-opaque medium administered via the abdominal aorta of the mice. X-ray images obtained from 720-micron thick tumor sections provided(More)
The vascular structure of 5 human malignant melanomas grown in athymic nude mice was characterized. The vessels were filled with a radio-opaque medium administered via the abdominal aorta of the mice. X-ray images, obtained from 720 micrometers-thick tumour sections, provided qualitative information on the vascular structure of the tumours. Histograms for(More)
We studied the chromatin structure of rat thymocytes fixed in 70% ethanol at 0-44 degrees C by flow cytometry and gel electrophoresis. The fluorescence of the DNA-specific dye mithramycin increased by 93% when thymocytes were exposed at 44 degrees C in the fixative compared to cells kept at 0 degrees C. Antibody labeling (X-ANA) of the core histones was 65%(More)
The vascular system of three commonly used murine experimental tumours, the C3H mammary carcinoma, the B16 melanoma and the Lewis lung carcinoma, in syngeneic (C3D2F1/Bom or C57BL/6J/Bom) and athymic (BALB/c/nu/nu/Bom) mice was studied. The main vascular characteristics of each tumour, i.e. the mean vessel diameter, the total vessel volume and the(More)
The effect of hyperthermia at 42.5 degrees C on a human melanoma xenograft in athymic mice was studied. The tumours were heated in vivo in a water-bath. Tumour growth delay and single-cell survival in vitro were used as endpoints. Qualitative information regarding heat-induced vascular damage was obtained from microangiographic analysis. Tumour growth delay(More)
