BACKGROUND Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) has been demonstrated to be useful for molecular profiling of common solid tumors. Using recently developed MALDI matrices for lipid profiling, we evaluated whether direct tissue MALDI MS analysis on proteins and lipids may classify human breast cancer samples according to(More)
PURPOSE Hollow fiber assays offer an early in vivo method of anticancer drug screening. The assays have been optimized for human cancers originating from the lung, breast, colon, ovary, and brain, but not from the stomach and liver. The current study focused on optimization of hollow fiber assays for gastric and hepatocellular carcinoma cell lines. (More)
The pattern of mean nuclear area changes was determined in human fibroblast cell strains from male donors of three different ages (8,40 and 84 years) during their in vitro lifespan. There was a statistically significant increase in mean nuclear area of cells of all three strains during their aging in vitro. A gradual increase of the subpopulation of cells(More)
Diploid fibroblasts from male donors aged 8, 40 and 84 years were grown in vitro and their nuclear RNA content was determined at early and late doublings by absorption cytophotometry after staining with Azure B for 2 hours at 40 degree C and pH 4. It was found that the average nuclear RNA content of the early doublings was lower than that of the last(More)
Quantitative interference microscopy was used to determine changes in nuclear and nucleolar indices (dry mass and cross-sectional area) in upper and lower epidermal cells and adjacent leaf-margin hair cells of the May apple (Podophyllum peltatum L.) leaves over a 42-day period (after leaves emerged above the ground litter). These indices decreased in a(More)
