Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of breast cancer patients show altered prolactin (PRL)-induced proinflammatory response and express short form of prolactin receptor (PRL-R), besides secreting elevated level of interleukin (IL)-10 than that of the normal counterparts. IL-10 depleted the functional long form of PRL-R mRNA and protein, expressed(More)
Screening of women of child bearing age among the tribal and rural population of different north eastern and eastern states of India was performed. More than 50% of women in some areas were found to have anemia. As part of the study nutritional supplementation was given to a proportion of the anemic population, comparing the effects of Spirulina, a compound(More)
The soluble factors produced either by Ehrlich's ascites carcinoma (EAC) or thymic adherent cells (TAC) of tumor-bearing mice comprising of CD11b(+) and CD11c(+) antigen-presenting cells caused a sharp decrease in prolactin (PRL)-induced ConA-mediated effect on survival of PNA(+) thymocytes. Similar suppression of PRL-induced effect was observed when the(More)
Expression of STAT3/pSTAT3 in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients of Indian origin was studied to assess its significance in early detection and apoptosis regulation. Colorectal tissues with malignant lesions were STAT3/pSTAT3 positive in 66% of the cases and among these positive cases, well differentiated, moderately differentiated and poorly differentiated(More)
Arsenic is a naturally occurring metalloid that has been associated with increased incidence of human cancers in certain highly exposed populations. This present work aimed to study whether arsenic plays any role in the increased incidence of blood cancer among residents of West Bengal, India, which is one of the worst arsenic-affected areas of the world.(More)
