We have investigated the regulation of urokinase (u-PA) mRNA in quiescent mouse fibroblasts and keratinocytes stimulated to divide by the addition of serum or epidermal growth factor (EGF), respectively. Serum stimulation of quiescent fibroblasts (BALB/c 3T3 or Swiss 3T3) results in an early and transient increase of u-PA mRNA level, which precedes by(More)
Early diagnosis of lung cancer by low-dose computed tomography is an effective strategy to reduce cancer mortality in high-risk individuals. However, recruitment of at-risk individuals with asymptomatic lung cancer still remains challenging. We developed a minimal invasive serum test, based on the detection of circulating microRNAs, which can identify(More)

The effects of high molecular weight dextran sulphate (DXS) on the migration of 125I-labelled deoxyuridine-labelled peripheral lymphoblasts (stimulated by oxazolone) were studied in vivo by injecting the drug (50 mg/kg) subcutaneously in recipients, and by following the fate of oxazolone-stimulated peripheral lymphocytes treated in vitro with DXS in(More)
The effects of subcutaneously or intraperitoneally administered dextran sulphate (DXS) (50 mg/Kg) on the subsequent 1 h localization of intravenously injected radiolabelled lymph node cells was investigated in complement deficient mice which lack C5. DXS proved to be equally as potent in depressing cell localization in deficient as compared to normal mice.(More)
