    The article focuses on the data presented by Cytokinetics Inc. at the 2009 Annual Meeting of the Association for Cancer Research which showed that in vitro exposures of GSK-923295 were predictive of in vivo efficacy in a murine xenograft model. It also revealed the accumulation of GSK-923295 in...

    Although a severe shortage of organs in transplantation can be overcome by using xenotransplantation of porcine donor organs, profound immune rejection to xenogeneic antigens remains a main obstacle. To elucidate the role of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) on xenogeneic immune responses, we...

    To assess the involvement of vascular endothelial cell activation and damage in stem cell transplantation (SCT)-related complications, such as acute and chronic GVHD and thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA), we investigated the changes in serum levels of soluble forms of vascular cell adhesion...

    With the use of modern immunosuppressive drugs short-time graft- and patient survival in renal transplant recipients is now in the range of 90% or better. In spite of this, these patients still die prematurely, primarily due to cardiovascular disease. The immunosuppressive treatment with both...

    We describe the differentiation of human embryonic stem (hES) cells into endothelial cells using a scalable two-dimensional method that avoids an embryoid-body intermediate. After transplantation into severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice, the differentiated cells contributed to arborized...

  • Carboxymethyl benzylamide dextran inhibits angiogenesis and growth of VEGF-overexpressing human epidermoid carcinoma xenograft in nude mice. Hamma-Kourbali, Y; Starzec, A; Vassy, R; Martin, A; Kraemer, M; Perret, G; Crepin, M; Crépin, M // British Journal of Cancer;7/7/2003, Vol. 89 Issue 1, p215 

    Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression is elevated in a wide variety of solid tumours. Inhibition of VEGF activities is able to reduce angiogenesis and tumour growth. We have recently shown in vitro that carboxymethyl dextran benzylamide (CMDB7) prevents the binding of VEGF(165) to...

  • Chronic Rejection.  // Encyclopedic Reference of Cancer;2001, p210 

    A definition of the term "chronic rejection" is presented. It refers to the severe damage and inflammation to engrafted organs that usually occur several months to several years after transplantation and is caused by humoral and cellular responses to donor endothelium.

    This review highlights recent advances in our understanding of intracellular mechanisms underlying programmed cell death in hepatic ischemia / reperfusion injury. A range of molecules have been tested with the intention to block the pathways of programmed cell death at different levels and to...
