To identify genes involved in the sensitivity of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells to chemotherapy, we monitored gene-expression profiles of cancer cells from 76 AML patients using a cDNA microarray consisting of 23,040 genes. We identified 63 genes that were commonly overexpressed and 372 genes suppressed in AML. Because these genes represent key(More)
To characterize molecular mechanisms operating in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells with a view toward development of novel therapeutic targets, we analyzed gene-expression profiles of cancer cells from 27 CML patients using a cDNA microarray representing 23,040 human genes. By comparing expression patterns of CML with those of normal cells, we(More)
One of the most critical issues to be solved in regard to cancer chemotherapy is the establishment of ways to predict the efficacy of anti-cancer drugs for individual patients. To develop a prediction system based on expression of specific genes, we analyzed expression profiles of mononuclear cells from 18 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients who were(More)
Missile therapy, which destroys cancer cells specifically, has been advocated as an effective modality for the treatment of carcinoma. We have developed an immunoconjugate consisting of the monoclonal antibody MSN-1 (IgM), which reacts strongly with endometrial adenocarcinomas, combined with a plant hemitoxin named gelonin via a disulfide bond using(More)
Missile therapy, which destroys cancer cells specifically, has been regarded as an effective treatment modality for carcinoma. The monoclonal antibody MSN-1 (IgM), which reacts strongly with endometrial adenocarcinomas, was combined with adriamycin (ADM) by a disulfide bond using N-succinimidyl-3-(2-pyridyldithio) propionate (SPDP) and 2-iminothiolane. Its(More)
Missile therapy, which destroys cancer cells specifically, has been considered to be an effective modality for treatment of carcinoma. We have developed a monoclonal antibody MSN-1 (immunoglobulin class: IgM), of which the immunogen is the endometrial adenocarcinoma cell line SNG-II, which strongly reacts with endometrial adenocarcinomas. We describe an(More)
We have produced a monoclonal antibody (MSN-1), by using our endometrial cancer-cultured cell line (SNG-II) as an immunogen. MSN-1 belongs to the IgM immunoglobulin class and mainly recognized the Lewis carbohydrate moiety. It seldom, reacted immunohistochemically with normal endometrium but with about 90% of endometrial cancer cases. So, we evaluated the(More)
