Tumor and metastasis suppression by the human RNASET2 gene.
The region 6q27 from human chromosome 6 has been reported to contain one or more tumor suppressor genes on the basis of cytogenetic, molecular and functional studies. We have recently carried out aExpand

Cloning and characterization of a senescence inducing and class II tumor suppressor gene in ovarian carcinoma at chromosome region 6q27
Cytogenetic, molecular and functional analysis has shown that chromosome region 6q27 harbors a senescence inducing gene and a tumor suppressor gene involved in several solid and hematologicExpand

Inhibition of HIV-1 Tat activity correlates with down-regulation of bcl-2 and results in reduction of angiogenesis and oncogenicity.
The Tat protein of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 promotes survival and growth and inhibits apoptosis of different cell types. These effects of Tat are attributed to the induction of bcl-2Expand

The role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma in bladder cancer in relation to angiogenesis and progression.
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR gamma) immunohistochemical expression was analyzed in 75 human bladder tumor specimens, where the expression of some angiogenic factors, such asExpand

Detection of viable but non-culturable staphylococci in biofilms from central venous catheters negative on standard microbiological assays.
Viable bacteria were sought in 44 Maki-negative biofilms from central venous catheters (CVCs) using epifluorescence microscopy after live/dead staining. Thirty (77%) samples contained viable butExpand

Antiangiogenic, antitumoural and antimetastatic effects of two distamycin A derivatives with anti-HIV-1 Tat activity in a Kaposi's sarcoma-like murine model
The antiangiogenic, antitumoural and antimetastatic effects of two novel sulphonic derivatives of distamycin A, PNU145156E and PNU153429, were studied in a Kaposi’s sarcoma-like tumour model obtainedExpand

Tumor-host interaction mediates the regression of BK virus-induced vascular tumors in mice: involvement of transforming growth factor-beta1.
Several sexually transmitted viruses have been associated with the development of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), a highly vascularized multi-focal neoplasm, characterized by the presence of spindle-shapedExpand

Antiangiogenic Drugs for Chemotherapy of Bladder Tumours
Background: Bladder cancers have different angiogenic pathways distinguishing not only papillary from solid tumours, but even papillary superficial from papillary invasive ones, thus representingExpand

First Report of Stemphylium vesicarium as Causal Agent of Wilting and Root Rotting of Radish Sprouts in Italy.
A consistent contamination from a Stemphylium sp. was detected on radish (Raphanus sativus) seeds by a seed blotter test. Twenty-five percent of seed lots were contaminated. Stemphylium vesicariumExpand
