    The objective of this paper was to observe the effects of Solanum lyratum Thunb extract on tumour inhibition, immune function and survival time of tumour-bearing mice. Lung carcinoma-bearing mouse model was established, the tumour-bearing mice were divided into model group, CTX group, Solanum...

    We aimed to assess the occurrence of ghrelin, a new gut hormone, in endocrine growths of the stomach. In addition, since ghrelin has been detected in other gut derivatives during adult and/or fetal life, we also studied endocrine tumours of the pancreas, intestine and lung. A specific serum...

    Menin upregulates transcription of cell-cycle inhibitors to suppress endocrine tumors, but it is poorly understood how menin suppresses non-endocrine tumors such as lung cancer. Here, we show that menin inhibits proliferation of human lung cancer cells and growth of lung cancer in mice. The...

    Objectives: To evaluate the effects of employing a 10B-carrier and manipulating intratumour hypoxia on local tumour response and lung metastatic potential in boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) by measuring the response of intratumour quiescent (Q) cells. Methods: B16-BL6 melanoma...

    Objectives: The aim was to evaluate the influence of bevacizumab on intratumour oxygenation status and lung metastasis following radiotherapy, with specific reference to the response of quiescent (Q) cell populations within irradiated tumours. Methods: B16-BL6 melanoma tumour-bearing C57BL/6...

    Natural killer (NK) cells are spontaneously cytotoxic against tumour target cells. Their number was found to be four times more in the spleen of tumour-bearing Swiss albino mice. After activation with recombinant interleukin-2 (rIL-2), NK cells were tested and found to seek out the tumour site...

  • Primary tumours modulate innate immune signalling to create pre-metastatic vascular hyperpermeability foci. Hiratsuka, Sachie; Ishibashi, Sachie; Tomita, Takeshi; Watanabe, Akira; Akashi-Takamura, Sachiko; Murakami, Masato; Kijima, Hiroshi; Miyake, Kensuke; Aburatani, Hiroyuki; Maru, Yoshiro // Nature Communications;May2013, Vol. 4 Issue 5, p1853 

    In mouse models of lung metastasis, before the appearance of significant metastases, localized changes in vascular permeability have been observed, which appear to set the stage for tumour growth. However, it is unclear whether this is also true in human patients. Here, we show that MD-2, a...
