Mutations in N-acetyltransferase 2 (NAT2), a highly polymorphic enzyme involved in the metabolism of xenobiotics and carcinogens, may affect risk for colorectal cancer (CRC), especially among individuals with germ-line mutations in DNA mismatch repair genes. We determined the NAT2 genotypes and allele frequencies for 86 individuals with CRC who had(More)
The antitumor activity of Adriamycin encapsulated in temperature-sensitive liposomes combined with local hyperthermia (HT) was tested in rats bearing well-developed liver W256 carcinosarcoma tumors. Two h after rats received Adriamycin encapsulated in temperature-sensitive liposomes via either the hepatic artery (i.a.) or the femoral vein (i.v.) or free(More)
Angelica sinensis is effective in treating diffuse interstitial pulmonary fibrosis in rats The aim of this study was to investigate the therapeutic effect of Angelica sinensis on a rat model of diffuse interstitial pulmonary fibrosis induced by bleomycin A5. The mechanism by which A. sinensis exerts its effect is also discussed. A diffuse interstitial(More)
We develop least squares (LS) procedures for variance components estimation in genetic linkage studies. The LS procedure is expressed by simple expressions, and does not require inversion of large matrices. Simulations comparing LS with maximum likelihood (ML) procedures for normal data show that both yield unbiased estimators, but the efficiency of the LS(More)
