Tallysomycin S10b (TLM S10b), a structural analog of bleomycin (BLM), was evaluated and compared with BLM for antitumor activity in several murine tumor systems and for toxic effects in mice and rats. Neither TLM S10b nor BLM was effective against IP P388 and L1210 leukemias, whereas both drugs were active against IP P388/J leukemia (a BLM-sensitive(More)
The toxicity of BMS-182248, an immunoglobulin (cBR96)-cytotoxic drug (doxorubicin) conjugate, was investigated in Sprague-Dawley rats at single intravenous doses of 508, 1,200, and 2,550 mg/m2 (conjugated doxorubicin doses of 14.7, 34.8, and 74 mg/m2, respectively) and compared to that obtained from administration of free doxorubicin at single doses of 33.6(More)
Oral administration of BL-6341 hydrochloride, a long-acting histamine H2-receptor antagonist, to rats for 2 years at doses of 10, 55 or 300 mg/kg/day resulted in several changes in the fundic (oxyntic) mucosa of the glandular stomach. The most significant alteration was a proliferation of argyrophil endocrine cells that was demonstrated to be(More)
Tallysomycin S10b, a biosynthetic derivative of tallysomycin B, was subjected to intravenous toxicologic studies in mice and dogs. LD50 and LD10 values from lethality studies in mice were utilized to establish dose levels for single and five daily dose toxicity studies in mice and dogs. Nephrotoxicity was the most consistent and prominent drug-related(More)
Single-dose and multiple-dose (daily X 5 and weekly X 5) intravenous toxicity studies in rats were conducted to determine the possible acute and delayed toxicity of BMY-25282 (7-N-(dimethylaminomethylene) mitomycin C), a potential anticancer drug. Rats in the single-dose study received either 0.05, 0.25, or 0.50 mg/kg (0.3, 1.5, or 3.0 mg/m2) of BMY-25282;(More)
A spectrum of proliferative cutaneous lesions occurred in 12 dogs at the injection site of live canine oral papillomavirus (COP) vaccine, suggesting a viral etiology for the masses. Lesions included epidermal hyperplasia, epidermal cysts, squamous papilloma, basal cell epithelioma, and squamous cell carcinoma. Peroxidase-antiperoxidase staining of tumor(More)
An electron microscopic examination of the pathogenic Donetta strain mycoplasma (tentatively Mycoplasma agalactiae var. bovis), in broth and cell cultures, revealed that this organism possessed considerable pleomorphism. A membranelined space occurred in a number of the organisms, and some of these were considered to represent deep, cuplike invaginations of(More)
