N-Propyl-N-nitrosourea (PNU) is a strong carcinogen which induces thymic lymphoma and other tumors in F344 rats. In the present experiment, sequential changes of the thymus, spleen, bone marrow, and other organs were examined histologically in F344 rats which were continuously given PNU in the drinking water. Hematopoietic organs, such as the bone marrow,(More)
The antitumor effects of recombinant human interleukin-2 (rIL-2), in combination with recombinant human interferon-alpha A/D hybrid (rIFN-alpha A/D) on colon carcinoma 26 (colon 26) in mice were examined histologically. Colon 26 was transplanted subcutaneously into female BALB/c mice on day 0. The mice bearing the tumor received intramuscular injections of(More)
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is a potent angiogenic mitogen. To elucidate the effect of bFGF inhibitors in vivo, anti-bFGF immunoneutralizing monoclonal antibody was prepared. One monoclonal antibody against human bFGF, obtained by cell fusion and designated 3H3, completely inhibited bFGF-induced proliferation of human umbilical vein endothelial(More)
The therapeutic effect of sustained-release microspheres of a potent LHRH agonist (leuprorelin acetate) on experimental endometriosis in female rats was examined histologically. Endometriosis was produced in rats by autotransplantation of endometrial tissue obtained from the left uterine horn into the renal subcapsular space. In the nontreated rats, the(More)
The vaginal absorption of a potent luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analog (leuprolide), and the gonadotropins (luteinizing hormone and follicule-stimulating hormone)-releasing response after continuous vaginal and subcutaneous administration of the analog to rats were determined by the radioimmunoassay. A marked suppressive effect on the(More)
Objective and design: We characterized the leukocyte kinetics after antigen challenge, and investigated the effects of the thromboxane (TX) A2 antagonist seratrodast, the peptide leukotriene (p-LT) antagonist pranlukast, the antihistaminic drug terfenadine and the glucocorticoid dexamethasone on this leukocyte response in a guinea pig model of allergic(More)
The antitumor effect of recombinant human interleukin-2 (rIL-2) on murine hemangioendothelioma D14 (D14) in female BALB/c-nu/nu mice was examined histologically. D14 cells which had been maintained in vitro were transplanted subcutaneously into nude mice on day 0 (1 x 10(7) cells/mouse). The mice with established tumor on day 28 received rIL-2(More)
Forty-eight female F344/DuCrj rats were given a 400-ppm solution of N-nitroso-N-propylurea (CAS: 816-57-9) continuously in their drinking water. Thymic lymphomas were induced most frequently (85%) followed by duodenal tumors (48%). Sixteen tumors were examined by the immunofluorescence inhibition test for murine leukemia virus-related antigens; 15 were(More)
We examined whether high-performance liquid chromatography(HPLC) method was more suitable for the measurement of hyaluronan(HA) in pleural fluid than the standardized electrophoretical method. Forty-four samples of pleural fluid were measured both by the HPLC method and by the electrophoretical method. The HA values measured by the HPLC method did not show(More)
