Both growth factors and steroid hormones are known to be associated with breast cancer. We have studied the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in canine mammary tumors and have shown the presence of a single class of 125I-EGF binding receptor sites in 9 out of 13 (70%) tumors, using Scatchard plot. The dissociation constant (KD) was 10(-9)M. An inverse(More)
Methods to detect and quantify minimal residual disease (MRD) after chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) could improve treatment by identifying patients who need more or less intensive therapy. We have used a clone-specific polymerase chain reaction to detect rearranged immunoglobulin heavy-chain gene from the leukaemic clone, and quantified(More)
N-Benzyladriamycin-14-valerate (AD198) is a novel lipophilic anthracycline with greater in vivo antitumour activity than doxorubicin (DOX) in experimental model systems. Using sensitive and progressively DOX-resistant L1210 mouse leukaemia and B16-BL6 mouse melanoma lines, we have determined the cellular pharmacokinetics and cytotoxic response in vitro and(More)
The distribution of receptors for estradiol (ER), progesterone (PgR) and androgens (DHTR) in 104 primary and 49 metastatic breast tumours from Indian women is herein being reported for the first time. When compared to reports in the literature, a lower percentage (47%) of ER (+) tumours and a higher percentage (49%) of DHTR (+) tumours were observed. There(More)
Estradiol receptors (ER) in mammary glands of female Holtzman rats, either intact or neonatally pinealectomised and housed in 10:14 or 24:0 L:D (light:dark) schedule were studied at 30, 40, 50 +/- 5 and 65 +/- 5 days of age. Whereas ER were detectable only at the age of 60-65 days in intact rats housed in 10:14 L:D, they were present as early as 30 days(More)
To assess the long-term effects of cancer treatment and consequences of cure, 102 index cancer cases were compared with 95 neighbourhood controls of similar age and sex and with 78 cardiac controls. The quality of life experienced by these three groups was examined using multiple instruments with proven psychometric properties. All the major quality of life(More)
With the ever-increasing cost for healthcare and increased health insurance premiums, there is a need for proactive healthcare and wellness. In addition, the new wave of digitizing medical records has seen a paradigm shift in the healthcare industry. As a result, the healthcare industry is witnessing an increase in sheer volume of data in terms of(More)
