The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and one of its ligands, transforming growth factor alpha (TGF-alpha), are thought to function as a potential autocrine loop in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the expression pattern of EGFR and the TGF-alpha-related ligands have not been fully characterized in primary NSCLC and adjacent benign lung(More)
Isolated sulfite oxidase deficiency is a rare but devastating neurologic disease that usually presents in early infancy with seizures and alterations in muscle tone. Only 21 cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of a newborn infant boy with isolated sulfite oxidase deficiency who presented with generalized seizures on his fourth day(More)
Vimentin (Vm) is initially expressed by early neuronal precursors in situ and in culture. Vm is essential for neuritogenesis at least in culture and is gradually replaced by neurofilaments (NFs) because of down-regulation of Vm expression. This period is accompanied by a slowing of axonal elongation. We examined whether continued expression of Vm could(More)
The relative DNA content of peripheral blood cells from 79 cases with lymphoid leukemias was analyzed by a dual-parameter flow cytometric analysis. The leukemia samples corresponded to: chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) 40, CLL with more than 10% prolymphocytes (CLL/PL) 12, CLL mixed 9, prolymphocytic leukemia (PLL) 5, and B-cell lymphoma in leukemic phase(More)
Rat gastroduodenal mucosa forms prostaglandin (PG) E2. However, little is known about regional differences in PGE2 formation or the effect of gastric hydrochloric acid (HC1) perfusion on regional PGE2 formation. In this study, the rats were divided into 3 groups. Group 1 received intravenous (i.v.), 1 Ml/h, and intragastric (i.g.), 8 ml/h, perfusions of(More)
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and one of its ligands, transforming growth factor «(TGF-a), are thought to function as a po tential autocrine loup in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the expression pattern of I (.1 R and the TGF-a-related ligands have not been fully characterized in primary NSCLC and adjacent benign lung tissue.(More)
