We have shown previously that IFN-γ-inducing cytokines such as IL-12 can mediate potent antitumor effects against murine solid tumors. IL-27 is a newly described IL-12-related cytokine that… Expand
Hepatic vascular tumors, angiectasis in multiple organs, and impaired spermatogenesis in mice with conditional inactivation of the VHL gene.
von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a multisystem inherited cancer syndrome characterized by the development of highly vascular tumors including hemangioblastomas of the retina and central nervous… Expand
IFN-gamma and Fas/FasL are required for the antitumor and antiangiogenic effects of IL-12/pulse IL-2 therapy.

Systemic administration of IL-12 and intermittent doses of IL-2 induce complete regression of metastatic murine renal carcinoma. Here, we show that overt tumor regression induced by IL-12/pulse IL-2… Expand
Administration of interleukin 12 with pulse interleukin 2 and the rapid and complete eradication of murine renal carcinoma.

BACKGROUND Interleukin 2 (IL-2) and interleukin 12 (IL-12) are potent immunoregulatory cytokines that exhibit antitumor activity. Preliminary evidence suggests that combined administration of IL-2… Expand
Tumor-Specific CTL Kill Murine Renal Cancer Cells Using Both Perforin and Fas Ligand-Mediated Lysis In Vitro, But Cause Tumor Regression In Vivo in the Absence of Perforin1
Kidney cancer is a devastating disease; however, biological therapies have achieved some limited success. The murine renal cancer Renca has been used as a model for developing new preclinical… Expand
IFN-γ mediates CD4+ T-cell loss and impairs secondary antitumor responses after successful initial immunotherapy
Protective cell-mediated immune responses in cancer are critically dependent on T-helper type 1 (TH1) cytokines such as interferon-γ (IFN-γ). We have previously shown that the combination of CD40… Expand
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor induces epithelial to mesenchymal transition, enhances tumor aggressiveness and predicts clinical outcome in resected pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma

MIF is a proinflammatory cytokine and is implicated in cancer. A higher MIF level is found in many human cancer and cancer‐prone inflammatory diseases, including chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic… Expand
Coactivation of AKT and β-catenin in mice rapidly induces formation of lipogenic liver tumors.

- 1 April 2011
Obesity is a risk factor for development of certain cancers but the basis for this risk is unclear. In this study, we developed a novel mouse model that demonstrates directly how lipogenic phenotypes… Expand
Administration of recombinant human IL-7 to mice alters the composition of B-lineage cells and T cell subsets, enhances T cell function, and induces regression of established metastases.

- Biology, Medicine
- Journal of immunology
- 15 June 1994
These studies investigate the effects of exogenously administered recombinant human IL-7 (rhIL-7) on mouse leukocyte subsets in vivo in normal and tumor-bearing mice. The administration of rhIL-7 to… Expand
Immunologic and Therapeutic Synergy of IL-27 and IL-2: Enhancement of T Cell Sensitization, Tumor-Specific CTL Reactivity and Complete Regression of Disseminated Neuroblastoma Metastases in the Liver…
IL-27 exerts antitumor activity in murine orthotopic neuroblastoma, but only partial antitumor effect in disseminated disease. This study demonstrates that combined treatment with IL-2 and IL-27… Expand
