Photodynamic Therapy Of Murine Fibrosarcoma With Topical And Systemic Administration Of Hypericin, I Cavarga, P Brezani, Maria Cekanova, P Solar, P Fedorocko, P Miskovsky Aug 2001

Photodynamic Therapy Of Murine Fibrosarcoma With Topical And Systemic Administration Of Hypericin, I Cavarga, P Brezani, Maria Cekanova, P Solar, P Fedorocko, P Miskovsky

Maria Cekanova MS, RNDr, PhD

The in vivo antitumour activity of the natural photosensitizer hypericin was evaluated. C3H/DiSn mice inoculated with fibrosarcoma G5:1:13 cells were intraperitoneally or intratumourally injected with hypericin (5 mg/kg) and 2 hours later the mice were locally irradiated with laser light (488 nm, 150 mW/cm2, 180 J/cm2) when the tumour reached volume of 40-80 mm3 (approximately 17 days after inoculation). Tumours treated with hypericin alone as well as those irradiated with laser light alone have similar growth rates and none of these tumours regressed spontaneously. The mean tumour volume in hypericin-PDT treated groups was significantly ...

The Effects Of R-Flurbiprofen In Reducing Tumors In A Multiple Intestinal Neoplasia Mouse Model, David Douglas Quiggle Jan 2001

The Effects Of R-Flurbiprofen In Reducing Tumors In A Multiple Intestinal Neoplasia Mouse Model, David Douglas Quiggle

Theses Digitization Project

The design of the proposed study was to administer R-FB to 72-day old Min/+ mice for up to 42 days. In order to capture the process of tumor reduction, animals were necropsied at various time points. At each time point animals were evaluated for tumor loads and presence of apoptotic cells along the small intestine. Studies have shown that when R-flurbiprofen (R-FB) is administered in the Min/+ mouse model it can cause the prevention and regression on intestinal tumors.


Antioxidation Activity Of Dhea And Its Mechanisms, Sun Yang, Han Rui Jan 2001

Antioxidation Activity Of Dhea And Its Mechanisms, Sun Yang, Han Rui

Pharmacy Faculty Articles and Research

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the anti-oxidative activity of a new chemopreventive agent--dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and the mechanisms of action by which DHEA protect the thymocytes and DNA from oxidative damage. Methods: Agarose gel electrophoresis, flow cytometry, single cel! gel electrophoresis, chemiluminescence assay, triazolyl blue tetrazolumbromide (MTT) colorimetry, and three dimensional collagen gel assay were used. Results: In agarose gel electrophoresis, 10 nmol/L DHEA blocked the typical DNA degradation (DNA Ladder) induced by H2O2. DHEA 2. 5 nmol/L and 10 nmol/L both significantly decreased the percentage of characteristic apoptotic DNA peak ...


Abnormal Expression Of P27kip1 Protein In Levator Ani Muscle Of Aging Women With Pelvic Floor Disorders - A Relationship To The Cellular Differentiation And Degeneration., A Bukovsky, P Copas, M Caudle, Maria Cekanova, T Dassanayake, B Asbury, S Vanmeter, R Elder, J Brown, S Cross Dec 2000

Abnormal Expression Of P27kip1 Protein In Levator Ani Muscle Of Aging Women With Pelvic Floor Disorders - A Relationship To The Cellular Differentiation And Degeneration., A Bukovsky, P Copas, M Caudle, Maria Cekanova, T Dassanayake, B Asbury, S Vanmeter, R Elder, J Brown, S Cross

Maria Cekanova MS, RNDr, PhD

BACKGROUND: Pelvic floor disorders affect almost 50% of aging women. An important role in the pelvic floor support belongs to the levator ani muscle. The p27/kip1 (p27) protein, multifunctional cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, shows changing expression in differentiating skeletal muscle cells during development, and relatively high levels of p27 RNA were detected in the normal human skeletal muscles. METHODS: Biopsy samples of levator ani muscle were obtained from 22 symptomatic patients with stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and overlaps (age range 38-74), and nine asymptomatic women (age 31-49). Cryostat sections were investigated for p27 protein expression and type I ...
