To obtain an insight into the network of cytokine gene transcription in the brain tumour microenvironment, we investigated the expression of genes encoding for interleukin (IL)-1 alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-10, interferon (IFN)-gamma, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and transforming(More)
Cytokines are powerful modulators of immune responses, the local production of which could be relevant to the interaction between tumour and immune system. This study investigated the transcription of genes encoding interleukin (IL) 2, IL-4, IL-10 and interferon (IFN) gamma in lymphocyte-infiltrated renal cell carcinoma biopsies from ten patients using the(More)
The therapeutic potential of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) is currently under investigation. TIL have been reported to display characteristic functional defects, including impairments of activation mechanisms. In animal models, therapeutic efficacy of adoptive TIL transfer has been correlated with their capacity to produce cytokines rather than with(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate in vitro and in situ the effects of two bleaching treatments on human enamel surface microhardness. Sixty enamel slabs from recently extracted thirty molars were used. The specimens were polished with sandpapers under water-cooling. The enamel samples were randomly divided in four groups, treated with 10% hydrogen(More)
