The use of bone grafts permits the filling of a bone defect without risk of virus transmission. In this work, pure bioactive glass (46S6) and zinc-doped bioactive glass (46S6Zn10) with 0.1 wt% zinc are used to elaborate highly bioactive materials by melting and rapid quenching. Cylinders of both types of glasses were soaked in a simulated body fluid (SBF)(More)
NMR proton spin-lattice (T1) and spin-spin (T2) relaxation times were measured ex vivo on Lewis lung carcinoma after in vivo single irradiation with an absorbed dose of 4 Gy. The results were compared to tumoural volume evolution, pathological examinations, and cell kinetic measurements. Tumour growth decreased between the third and the sixth day after(More)
The performance therapy of chitosan (CH)-doped bioactive glass (BG) has been evaluated in vitro and in vivo. In vitro, the effect of CH-BG was assessed on human Saos-2 osteoblast cells. In vivo, Wistar rats were ovariectomized (OVX) and CH, BG and CH-BG were implanted in bone tissue. After 3 days of CH-BG contact, cell viability of Saos-2 osteoblast(More)
The mouse monoclonal antibody (mAb) Po66 has been shown in previous work to be localized in nude mice xenografts of human lung tumours when injected intravenously [Dazord L et al. (1987) Cancer Immunol Immunother 24: 263-268] and to be suitable for the scintigraphic detection of lung cancers in patients [Dazord L, et al. (1987) in Klapdor (ed) New tumour(More)
A monoclonal antibody specific for Lewis lung carcinoma (3LL) cells (Mab 5B5) was found to recognize antigens expressed on murine macrophages and on a macrophage hybridoma line upon cell adhesion on plastic surfaces. These antigens were also present on the surface of murine macrophage tumor M5076 cells which develop solid tumors and metastases. The M5076(More)
The amount of informations relative to cell analysis generated on a flow cytometer must often be processed on a computer so that accurate and efficient analysis can be performed on the stored data, and have the power to consider complex signal distributions. A Ortho 50H flow cytometer was complemented with a Persona 1600 microcomputer (LogAbax) via an(More)
The 3A33 monoclonal antibody, obtained by fusing rat immune lymphocytes with mouse plasmacytoma cells, was directed against mouse macrophages. Antibody 3A33, a rat IgG2a, reacted with macrophages from all the mouse strains tested, with mouse blood monocytes and with 56% of bone marrow cells, but not with T lymphocytes. It immunoprecipitated an antigen with(More)
The monoclonal antibody, 3A33, directed against Mac-1 antigen which is expressed essentially on macrophages and polymorphonuclear cells, was injected i.v. into mice, as part of an attempt to visualize inflammatory lesions and tumours by external scintigraphy. The monoclonal antibody, a rat IgG2a, was conjugated with a bifunctional chelating agent,(More)
It has been shown that the vesicles produced by Porphyromonas gingivalis under certain growth conditions contribute to its pathogenicity. In this study, we demonstrate the cytotoxic effect of the vesicles using two methods: one quantitative (the colorimetric cytotoxicity test using sulforhodamine B) and the other qualitative (flow cytometry).
