Heat shock protein gp96 induces a tumor-specific protective immunity in a variety of experimental tumor models. Because the primary sequences of the glycoprotein, gp96 are identical between tumor and normal tissues, the peptides associated with gp96 and/or the posttranslational modifications of gp96, determine its immunogenicity. Gp96-associated peptides(More)
Considerable epidemiological evidence exists to link thyroid disease with differing patterns of dietary consumption, in particular, cruciferous vegetables. We have been studying the anti-thyroid cancer (TCa) activity of indole-3-carbinol (I3C) found in cruciferous vegetables and its acid catalyzed dimer, 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM). There are no studies as(More)
Chemotherapy in prostate cancer (CaP) even as an adjunct has not been a success. In this communication, we report the pre-clinical efficacy of a nitroacridine derivative, C-1748 (9[2'-hydroxyethylamino]-4-methyl-1-nitroacridine) in CaP cell culture and human xenograft animal models. C-1748, a DNA intercalating agent has been derived from its precursor C-857(More)
Nitroacridines are potent DNA-binding and cytotoxic agents in cancer cells, but could not be developed clinically due to high systemic toxicities. We are developing a 1-nitroacridine derivative, 9-(2'-hydroxyethylamino)-4-methyl-1-nitroacridine (C-1748), as an effective chemotherapeutic agent for prostate cancer. C-1748 demonstrates high antitumor efficacy(More)
Intraoperative neuromonitoring of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) can allow identification of evolving neurologic deficit. However, SSEP deterioration is not always associated with postoperative deficit. Transient physiologic changes, including a decrease in blood pressure (BP), can result in signal deterioration, defined as a decrease in waveform(More)
