Based on a pharmacokinetic model proposed by Jusko, which assumes that the cell killing action of cell cycle phase-non-specific agents occurs as a bimolecular reaction depending on drug concentration and cell density, we derived a cell kill kinetic equation for these drugs, including the decomposition constant in culture medium. This equation revealed that(More)
RS-1541, an acyl-derivative of rhizoxin (Fig. 1), is a potent antitumor compound. This agent showed cytotoxicity in vitro on some cultured human tumor cells, although it was less potent than rhizoxin. Rhizoxin exhibited antitumor effects by inhibiting the polymerization of tubulin, whereas RS-1541 did not inhibit tubulin polymerization in vitro. However,(More)
Local cytokine gene expression in vivo was analyzed by direct analysis of RNA obtained from salivary gland tissues of MRL/lpr mice with autoimmune sialadenitis. The expression of cytokine genes were assessed by the reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction, and by immunohistochemical analysis. The expression of interleukin-1(IL-1)beta and tumor(More)
A method was introduced for the estimation of total dietary fiber (TDF) intake of a population using a menu-oriented questionnaire and a menu-based calculation table. TDF intake correlated well with age in a population investigated, and in younger generations TDF consumption was very low (less than 11.5 g/day in teenagers). The similar results were obtained(More)
Plasma concentration-time profiles of nimustine hydrochloride, 1-[(4-amino-2-methyl-5-pyrimidinyl)methyl]-3-(2-chloroethyl)-3-nitrosourea hydrochloride (ACNU), in the mouse, rat, rabbit, and dog were determined by high-performance liquid chromatographic analysis. The pharmacokinetic parameters for these four animal species and previously reported clinical(More)
