Indicators of transport stress were investigated in blood parameters of five male cynomolgus monkeys obtained from abroad. They underwent air and ground travel-related stress in transport cages for a 15-hour transit time. On arrival, hematological parameters of white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hemoglobin concentration, and hematocrit values(More)
The potential application of toxicogenomics to predictive toxicology has been discussed widely, but the utility of the approach remains largely unproven. Using cDNA microarrays, we compared the gene expression profiles produced in mouse lymphoma cells by three genotoxic compounds, hydroxyurea (a carcinogen), p-anisidine (a noncarcinogen), and paclitaxel(More)
The effects of ketamine anesthesia on both hematological and serum biochemical variables were investigated in 19 male and 15 female cynomolgus monkeys. Blood samples were obtained from the cephalic vein within 30 minutes of an intramuscular injection of ketamine hydrochloride (10 mg/kg). Ketamine anesthesia caused a reduction in leukocyte counts and a(More)
The nuclear factor κB (NF-κB)/inhibitor of κ kinase-β (IKKβ) signaling pathway is important in tumor promotion and progression. MDA-MB-231 human breast carcinoma cells express COX-2 and show a constitutive phosphorylation of NF-κB. Many non-specific inhibitors of IKKβ and NF-κB are used to inhibit tumor promotion and progression. The Stephania delavayi(More)
The World Health Organization reports that 235 million people are currently affected by asthma. This disease is associated with an imbalance of Th1 and Th2 cells, which results in the upregulation of cytokines that promote chronic inflammation of the respiratory system. The inflammatory response causes airway obstruction and can ultimately result in death.(More)
CKD-602 is a newly developed camptothecin anticancer agent. Preclinical studies suggest that it may have greater antitumor activity and lower toxicity than other camptothecin anticancer agents. The potential of CKD-602 to induce embryotoxicity was investigated in the Sprague-Dawley rat. One hundred mated females (sperm in vaginal lavage=day 0) were(More)
A novel autosomal recessive mutant was produced using N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea mutagenesis. The characteristics of the mutant mice included progressive irreversible hair loss within a month of birth, wrinkled skin, and long curved nails. Linkage analysis revealed that the causative gene is linked to D14Mit193 on chromosome 14. Sequence analysis of the complete(More)
To investigate the safety pharmacology of a novel fluoroquinolone antibiotic agent, DW-224a, on the vital functions, we studied its effects on the central nervous system, cardiovascular system and respiratory system. To determine the effects on the central nervous system, we used a modified Irwin's test at each time point after oral administration of(More)
Withaferin A (WA), a withanolide purified from Withania somnifera, has been known to exert anti-inflammatory effects. The present study sought to determine the effects of WA on Helicobacter (H.) pylori-mediated inflammation in the AGS gastric epithelial cell line. Cellular production of interleukin (IL)-8 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) was(More)
This study examined the potential adverse effects of a new camptothecin anticancer agent, CKD-602, on the fertility and early embryonic development of Sprague-Dawley rats. Ninety-six rats of each gender were divided into four groups: three treatment groups and a control group. CKD-602 was administered intravenously to male rats at 0, 4.7, 14, and 42(More)
