Sepsis is reported to induce an increase in the rate of apoptosis (Ao), in immature lymphoid cells residing in hematopoietic tissues such as the thymus and bone marrow. Alternatively, secondary lymphoid tissue, such as the spleen exhibit little innate (unstimulated) Ao. However, it is unknown whether or not polymicrobial sepsis has any effects on the(More)
We measured levels of basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) in human colon cancer cells (clone A) in vitro and in xenografted solid tumours using a commercial enzyme-linked immunoassay. In Vitro, levels in unfed plateau phase or exponentially growing cells were low, averaging respectively about 2 and 8 pg 10(-6) cells. However, when solid tumours (average(More)
