During the hunting season 1990/1991 a total of 841 blood samples was collected from shot wild boar corresponding to about 2.11% of the total hunting bag in Lower Saxony. All the sera were screened for neutralizing antibodies (nAb) to hog cholera virus (HCV) and bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) by direct neutralizing peroxidase linked antibody (NPLA)(More)
We conducted a prospectively randomized clinical trial to compare the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous interferon-α2a, subcutaneous interleukin-2 and intravenous 5-fluorouracil as home therapy against oral tamoxifen in 78 patients with progressive metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Treatment courses consisted of interferon-α2a 5 × 106 IU m–2day 1 weeks 1 +(More)
To evaluate the therapeutic effects and systemic toxicities of a capecitabine-based home therapy regimen in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma, 30 patients were enrolled in a phase II clinical trial. Treatment consisted of oral capecitabine combined with subcutaneous recombinant human interferon-α 2a, recombinant human interleukin-2 and oral(More)
The purpose of this randomized trial was to evaluate the efficacy of combination chemoimmunotherapy compared with chemotherapy alone. A total of 124 patients were randomized to receive intravenous cisplatin (35 mg m−2, days 1–3), carmustine (150 mg m−2, day 1, cycles 1 and 3 only), dacarbacine (220 mg m−2, days 1–3) and oral tamoxifen (20 mg m−2, daily) in(More)
Therapy of selected human malignancies with interferon-alpha is widely accepted but often complicated by the emergence of interferon-alpha resistance. Interferon is a pleiotropic cytokine with antiproliferative, antitumour, antiviral and immunmodulatory effect; it signals through the Jak-STAT signal transduction pathway where signal transducer and activator(More)
