OBJECTIVES Malignant gliomas are good targets for gene therapy because they have been proven incurable with conventional treatments. However, malignant gliomas are genetically and physiologically highly heterogeneous, and current gene therapy interventions have been designed to target only a few variations of this kind of disease. Hence, we developed a(More)
Previous studies have reported a neuroprotective effect of 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) against traumatic brain injury. In accordance with the Marmarou method, rat models of diffuse axonal injury were established. 8-OH-DPAT was intraperitoneally injected into model rats. 8-OH-DPAT treated rats maintained at constant temperature served(More)
Malignant gliomas are the most common of primary brain tumors and have been proven incurable with conventional treatments. Evidence have shown that a recombinant adenoviral vector expressing human wild-type p53, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), and B7-1 genes (BB-102) may have antitumor effects in vitro. In this study, we(More)
