OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of CF101, a synthetic agonist to the A3 adenosine receptor (A3AR), on the production of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). The ability of CF101 to act as a myeloprotective agent in chemotherapy-treated mice was tested. METHODS CF101 was administered orally to naïve mice and its effect(More)
Methotrexate (MTX) exerts an anti-inflammatory effect via its metabolite adenosine, which activates adenosine receptors. The A3 adenosine receptor (A3AR) was found to be highly expressed in inflammatory tissues and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of rats with adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA). CF101 (IB-MECA), an A3AR agonist, was previously found(More)
Nonanastomotic strictures after liver transplantations are a source of significant morbidity, often necessitating retransplantation. The purpose of this study was twofold: first to identify features associated with the development of this lesion; second, to make technical modifications that will decrease the incidence of this problem. In the first part of(More)
