    We examined the antitumor activity of replication-deficient adenoviral vectors carrying the murine interleukin-4 (IL-4) gene (AdCIL4) using a syngeneic brain tumor model in mice. Mice implanted with malignant astrocytoma cells infected with AdCIL4 survived significantly longer than those in the...

    The HER-2/neu proto-oncogene is frequently amplified or overexpressed in human breast and ovarian cancers, and is significantly correlated with shorter survival. We have previously reported that the adenovirus type 5 early region 1A (E1A) gene product can repress HER-2/neu overexpression by...

    We constructed a series of adenoviral (Ad) vectors that express the Candida albicans cytosine deaminase (CD) suicide gene under the transcriptional control of either the human α-lactalbumin (ALA) or ovine β-lactoglobulin (BLG) promoter (Ad.ALA.CD and Ad.BLG.CD, respectively). The Ad.ALA.CD...

    Saikosaponin A (SSa) is isolated from the dried root of Radix Bupleuri , an herb widely used in traditional Chinese medicine, exerting antitumor activities. The T helper cell type 1(Th1)/Th2 balance is associated with antitumor immunity in breast cancer. The present study aimed to investigate...
