Group 1 cell lines contained both dedifferentiated and differentiating cells growing in tight clusters or islands of epithelium-like cells; their modal chromosome number was about 47, and they synthesized small to moderate amounts of CEA. Group 2 cell lines were more dedifferentiated, were hyperdiploid, and synthesized small amounts of CEA. Group 3 cell lines were morphologically similar to those of Group 1 by light microscopy. They differed ultrastructurally by containing microvesicular bodies; the modal chromosome number varied from hyperdiploid to hypertriploid or they had bimodal populations of hypodiploid and hypertriploid cells, and they synthesized relatively large amounts of CEA. No correlation could be found between Broder's grade or Duke's classification of the original tumor and modal chromosome number or ability to synthesize CEA. These findings support Nowell's hypothesis that the stem line is different for each solid tumor, which makes it difficult to relate chromosomal changes to the initiation of the neoplastic state.  (+info)

Long-term transplantability and morphological stability of three experimentally induced urinary bladder carcinomas in rats. (2/10282)

Three transitional cell carcinomas induced in Fischer 344 rats by a methylcholanthrene pellet or a foreign body inserted locally into the bladder have been serially transplanted in the syngeneic strain for up to 6.5 years. There have been no changes in the individual morphological characteristics of the tumors during this time. Cells cultured in vitro for varying numbers of passages reproduce regularly the morphology of each tumor when they are injected back into the animals and results from a microcytotoxicity assay for cellular immunity indicate that they retain a common, bladder tumor-specific antigen. These tumors are useful for research in turmo biology and are offered to other scientists seeking transplantable carcinomas for experimentation.  (+info)

Natural history of papillary lesions of the urinary bladder in schistosomiasis. (3/10282)

Variable epithelial hyperplasia was observed in urinary bladder of nine capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) when examined at cystotomy 94 to 164 weeks after infection with Schistosoma haematobium. These hosts were followed for 24 to 136 weeks postcystotomy to determine the status of bladder lesions in relation to duration of infection and to ascertain whether lesion samples removed at cystotomy reestablished themselves in autologous and heterologous transfers. There was involution of urothelial hyperplasia in eight of nine animals and no evidence for establishment of transplanted bladder lesions.  (+info)

Antitumor effect of allogenic fibroblasts engineered to express Fas ligand (FasL). (4/10282)

Fas ligand is a type II transmembrane protein which can induce apoptosis in Fas-expressing cells. Recent reports indicate that expression of FasL in transplanted cells may cause graft rejection and, on the other hand, tumor cells may lose their tumorigenicity when they are engineered to express FasL. These effects could be related to recruitment of neutrophils by FasL with activation of their cytotoxic machinery. In this study we investigated the antitumor effect of allogenic fibroblasts engineered to express FasL. Fibroblasts engineered to express FasL (PA317/FasL) did not exert toxic effects on transformed liver cell line (BNL) or colon cancer cell line (CT26) in vitro, but they could abrogate their tumorigenicity in vivo. Histological examination of the site of implantation of BNL cells mixed with PA317/FasL revealed massive infiltration of polymorphonuclear neutrophils and mononuclear cells. A specific immune protective effect was observed in animals primed with a mixture of BNL or CT26 and PA317/FasL cells. Rechallenge with tumor cells 14 or 100 days after priming resulted in protection of 100 or 50% of animals, respectively. This protective effect was due to CD8+ cells since depletion of CD8+ led to tumor formation. In addition, treatment of pre-established BNL tumors with a subcutaneous injection of BNL and PA317/FasL cell mixture at a distant site caused significant inhibition of tumor growth. These data demonstrate that allogenic cells engineered with FasL are able to abolish tumor growth and induce specific protective immunity when they are mixed with neoplastic cells.  (+info)

Mechanisms related to [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose uptake of human colon cancers transplanted in nude mice. (5/10282)

[18F]Fluorodeoxyglucose ([18F]FDG), a glucose analogue, has been widely used for tumor imaging. To investigate the mechanisms related to [18F]FDG uptake by tumors, an experiment involving nude mice was performed. METHODS: Human colon cancer cell lines SNU-C2A, SNU-C4 and SNU-C5 were transplanted to nude mice. Using immunohistochemical staining and Western blot, the expression of glucose transporter (Glut) isoforms (Glut-1 through -5) in xenografted tumors was analyzed. For the analysis of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) expression, reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction and Northern blot were used and the enzyme activity of hexokinase in cancer tissues was measured by continuous spectrophotometric rate determination. RESULTS: [18F]FDG uptake in SNU-C4 and SNU-C5 cells was higher than in normal colon cells. Among these cells and xenografted tumors, SNU-C5 showed the highest level of [18F]FDG uptake, followed by SNU-C4 and SNU-C2A. An immunostaining experiment showed intense staining of Glut-1 in SNU-C5 tumors but somewhat faint staining in SNU-C4. SNU-C5 tumors also showed positive staining with Glut-3, although this was not the case with SNU-C2A and SNU-C4. Western blot analysis showed the expression of Glut-1 and Glut-3 in all tumors. Experiments involving Northern blot analysis and reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction confirmed the overexpression of Glut-1 mRNA in all tumors, with the highest level in SNU-C5. The level of Glut-3 mRNA was also elevated in SNU-C5 tumors but not in SNU-C2A and SNU-C4. The enzyme activity of hexokinase did not vary among different tumors. CONCLUSION: Gluts, especially Glut-1, are responsible for [18F]FDG uptake in a nude mouse model of colon cancer rather than hexokinase activity. Increased numbers of glucose transporters at the plasma membrane of cancer cells is attributed to an increased level of transcripts of glucose transporter genes and may be a cause of increased [18F]FDG uptake, at least in colon cancer tumors.  (+info)

99mTc-labeled vasoactive intestinal peptide receptor agonist: functional studies. (6/10282)

Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is a naturally occurring 28-amino acid peptide with a wide range of biological activities. Recent reports suggest that VIP receptors are expressed on a variety of malignant tumor cells and that the receptor density is higher than for somatostatin. Our aims were to label VIP with 99mTc--a generator-produced, inexpensive radionuclide that possesses ideal characteristics for scintigraphic imaging--and to evaluate 99mTc-VIP for bioactivity and its ability to detect experimental tumors. METHODS: VIP28 was modified at the carboxy terminus by the addition of four amino acids that provided an N4 configuration for a strong chelation of 99mTc. To eliminate steric hindrance, 4-aminobutyric acid (Aba) was used as a spacer. VIP28 was labeled with 1251, which served as a control. Biological activity of the modified VIP28 agonist (TP3654) was examined in vitro using a cell-binding assay and an opossum internal anal sphincter (IAS) smooth muscle relaxivity assay. Tissue distribution studies were performed at 4 and 24 h after injection, and receptor-blocking assays were also performed in nude mice bearing human colorectal cancer LS174T. Blood clearance was examined in normal Sprague-Dawley rats. RESULTS: The yield of 99mTc-TP3654 was quantitative, and the yields of 125I-VIP and 1251-TP3654 were >90%. All in vitro data strongly suggested that the biological activity of 99mTc-TP3654 agonist was equivalent to that of VIP28. As the time after injection increased, radioactivity in all tissues decreased, except in the receptor-enriched tumor (P = 0.84) and in the lungs (P = 0.78). The tumor uptake (0.23 percentage injected dose per gram of tissue [%ID/g]) was several-fold higher than 125I-VIP (0.06 %ID/g) at 24 h after injection in the similar system. In mice treated with unlabeled VIP or TP3654, the uptake of 99mTc-TP3654 decreased in all VIP receptor-rich tissues except the kidneys. The blood clearance was biphasic; the alpha half-time was 5 min and the beta half-time was approximately 120 min. CONCLUSION: VIP28 was modified and successfully labeled with 99mTc. The results of all in vitro examinations indicated that the biological activity of TP3654 was equivalent to that of native VIP28 and tumor binding was receptor specific.  (+info)

In vivo isolated kidney perfusion with tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) in tumour-bearing rats. (7/10282)

Isolated perfusion of the extremities with high-dose tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) plus melphalan leads to dramatic tumour response in patients with irresectable soft tissue sarcoma or multiple melanoma in transit metastases. We developed in vivo isolated organ perfusion models to determine whether similar tumour responses in solid organ tumours can be obtained with this regimen. Here, we describe the technique of isolated kidney perfusion. We studied the feasibility of a perfusion with TNF-alpha and assessed its anti-tumour effects in tumour models differing in tumour vasculature. The maximal tolerated dose (MTD) proved to be only 1 microg TNF-alpha. Higher doses appeared to induce renal failure and a secondary cytokine release with fatal respiratory and septic shock-like symptoms. In vitro, the combination of TNF-alpha and melphalan did not result in a synergistic growth-inhibiting effect on CC 531 colon adenocarcinoma cells, whereas an additive effect was observed on osteosarcoma ROS-1 cells. In vivo isolated kidney perfusion, with TNF-alpha alone or in combination with melphalan, did not result in a significant anti-tumour response in either tumour model in a subrenal capsule assay. We conclude that, because of the susceptibility of the kidney to perfusion with TNF-alpha, the minimal threshold concentration of TNF-alpha to exert its anti-tumour effects was not reached. The applicability of TNF-alpha in isolated kidney perfusion for human tumours seems, therefore, questionable.  (+info)

Medroxyprogesterone acetate inhibits interleukin 6 secretion from KPL-4 human breast cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo: a possible mechanism of the anticachectic effect. (8/10282)

Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is a multifunctional cytokine. Recent reports suggest that circulating IL-6 secreted from tumour cells plays an important role in cancer-induced cachexia. Medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) has been used as an endocrine therapeutic agent for patients with breast cancer. It has been suggested that MPA decreases serum IL-6 levels and preserves the bodyweight of patients with advanced breast cancer. However, the mechanisms of action responsible for the anticachectic effect of MPA have not been elucidated. Therefore, the effects of MPA on IL-6 secretion were studied both in vitro and in vivo using a human breast cancer cell line, KPL-4, which secretes IL-6 into medium and induces cachexia when injected into female nude mice. MPA (10-1000 nM) dose-dependently decreased basal IL-6 secretion into medium, and also suppressed tumour necrosis factor (TNF-alpha)-induced IL-6 secretion. Both basal and TNF-alpha-induced IL-6 mRNA levels were dose-dependently lowered by MPA. Moreover, intramuscular injections of MPA (100 mg kg(-1) twice a week) into nude mice bearing KPL-4 transplanted tumours significantly decreased serum IL-6 levels without affecting tumour growth and preserved the bodyweight of recipient mice. These findings suggest that suppression of IL-6 secretion from tumour cells, at least in part, causes the anticachectic effect of MPA.  (+info)

N2 - The present studies were conduced with RIF-1, M5076 and Panc02 subcutaneous tumor models to assess the relationship between tissue-free water compartmentalization and observed tissue T1 and T2 changes at 10 MHz. Observed T1 was shown to correlate directly with total extracellular water and interstitial water volumes. T1 and T2 were also inversely related to intracellular water volumes. T1 and T2 decreases after dexamethasone treatment were, however, most closely correlated with changes in tumor extracellular water and not changes in cell or total water volumes. Studies to assess Gd-DTPA-dimeg dose dependent T1 and T2 modification in model serum protein solutions indicated that although the Gd concentration that reduced T2 by 50% was about 2.5 fold greater than that required to reduce T1 equally, the ...
Inoculation of mice from appropriate crosses with two strain A tumours and one dba (subline 2) tumour showed close linkage of such a gene with the locus for fused. With the A strain it was shown that the gene was identical with that for antigen II present in the erythrocytes. The gene is therefore labelled $H_{2}$. Of sixty-nine backcross mice tested, both serologically and by tumour inoculation, sixty-five gave concordant results, four discordant results. In general, it appears that serological tests are preferable to tumour inoculation in the identification of genotypes. On serological grounds it is suggested that the dba gene is an allele of the above and should be called $H_{2}{}^{d}$. It is possible that there is a long series of alleles at this locus. The indicated genotype of the strains used is as follows: $A,H_{2}H_{2}$; $dba,H_{2}{}^{d}H_{2}{}^{d}$; CBA, C57 and $P,h_{2}h_{2}$; $CA,Fu$ $h_{2}/fu$ $h_{2}$.

All 20 patients whose stomach tumors resulted in local growth in the nude mice had clinical lymph‐node involvement, whereas 8 of the other 16 patients whose tumors were rejected had lymph‐node involvement. There was a statistical correlation(p ,0.01) between local tumor growth in nude mice and clinical lymph‐node involvement. Of the 20 cases resulting in local growth in the nude mice, 5 had clinical liver ...
Purpose: Cultured tumor fragments from melanoma metastases have been used as a source of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) for adoptive cell therapy. The expansion of tumor-reactive CD8+ T cells with IL-2 in these early cultures is critical in generating clinically active TIL infusion products, with a population of activated 4-1BB CD8+ T cells recently found to constitute the majority of tumor-specific T cells. Experimental Design:We used an agonistic anti-4-1BB antibody added during the initial tumor fragment cultures to provide in situ 4-1BB co-stimulation. Results: Addition of an agonistic anti-4-1BB antibody could activate 4-1BB signaling within early cultured tumor fragments and accelerated the rate of memory CD8+ TIL outgrowth that were highly enriched for melanoma antigen specificity. This was associated with NFkappaB activation and the induction of T-cell survival and memory genes, as well as enhanced IL-2 responsiveness, in the CD8+ T cells in the fragments and emerging from the ...

Many cancer cell types, as well as their metastases, express high levels of CD44. Whereas some tumors, such as gliomas, exclusively display CD44s, other neoplasms, including brain metastases, gastrointestinal cancer, pancreatic adenocarcinoma, bladder cancer, uterine cervical cancer, breast cancer and non-Hodgkins lymphomas, additionally and sometimes preferentially express CD44 variants. Hence, CD44, particularly its variants, may be used as diagnostic or prognostic markers of at least some human malignant diseases. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated in animal models that upon transfection with CD44s, or CD44v cDNA, nonmetastatic tumor cells acquire metastatic potential. In addition, injection of reagents interfering with CD44-ligand interaction (e.g. CD44s- or CD44v-specific mAb) inhibit local tumor growth and metastatic spread in murine species. In this context, CD44 may confer a growth advantage on some neoplastic cells, and consequently could be used as a target for cancer therapy. The ...
I recently read with great interest, the opposing viewpoints on Is there enough benefit to justify sequencing all patients tumors?, published in JAMA Oncology (April 14, 2016). From the Yes side: sequencing technology provides invaluable intelligence to diagnose, treat, and defeat cancer (Universal Genomic Testing Needed to Win the War Against Cancer by Razelle Kurzrock, MD, and Vivek Subbiah, MD). From the No side: rigorously tested superiority and outcome data are lacking and the cost to patients is still prohibitive (No Solid Evidence, Only Hollow Argument for Universal Tumor Sequencing by Howard Jack West, MD). Both of these are compelling arguments, in spite of their contradictory nature, that deserve ongoing consideration in the oncology community. What we are increasingly coming to understand is that beyond a relatively small set of driver aberrations, whose testing and treatment are specified in standard treatment guidelines, there are a wealth of other molecular abnormalities in ...
Checkpoint blockade targeting PD-1/PD-L1 has clinical efficacy in a variety of tumor types, and has been shown to function through activation of T cells. However, PD-1 is also expressed on macrophages, prompting Gordon and colleagues to investigate the effects of PD-1 blockade on macrophages in the tumor microenvironment. Fluorescence-activated cell sorting of cells from syngeneic colon cancer models revealed that approximately 50% of tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) expressed surface PD-1. In contrast, no circulating monocytes or splenic macrophages had detectable PD-1 expression. The majority of PD-1+ TAMs exhibited an M2-like surface profile, suggesting a protumor phenotypes, whereas the PD-1− TAMs were often M1-like, indicative of an inflammatory phenotype. The PD-1+ TAM population emerged approximately 2 weeks after tumor engraftment, and PD-1 expression increased over time. Consistent with these findings, TAMs from human colorectal tumors exhibited high but variable expression of PD-1, ...
Maloney began by explaining that CAR-T cells produced from distinct T-cell subsets differ in potency. NSG mice bearing Raji tumors (0.5x10 6tumor cell inoculation; day 0) were treated with human CAR-T cells manufactured from distinct T-cell subsets (on day 7). CAR-T cells produced from CD8 +T CMcells were highly potent ( Sommermeyer et al.2015).. Engineering selected T-cell subsets could enhance potency and allow delivery of the same cell product in all patients, potentially providing more uniform data on dose response and toxicity.. Pre-clinical studies have established that a defined composition of CD8 +T CMderived and CD4 +derived CAR T-cells provides optimal potency.. ...

The ability of PEM from normal and tumor‐bearing mice to bind tumor targets was found to be similar in the presence or the absence of surrogate receptors, which enhanced the binding but not the killing of tumor targets by PEM from tumor‐bearing mice, suggesting that other mechanisms are involved in their impaired cytolytic activity. Soluble and membrane‐bound TNF‐α, as well as H2O2, were found in higher amounts in PEM from tumor bearers upon stimulation with LPS, as compared with PEM from normal ...
The ability to generate a large number of tumor-reactive T lymphocytes is the most critical requirement for adoptive immunotherapy. Our laboratory has previously demonstrated that cells from tumor-draining lymph nodes (LNs) are an excellent source of tumor-reactive T lymphocytes. After activation with anti-CD3, these cells readily proliferate in low concentrations of interleukin 2 and acquire effector functions. The adoptive transfer of these cells is capable of mediating the regression of tumors established in the lung as well as in the brain. Here, we analyzed several adhesion molecules on the tumor-draining LN T cells and separated them based on l-selectin expression. The homing receptor l-selectin mediates adhesion to the luminal surface of specialized high endothelial venules, thus regulating lymphocyte recirculation through peripheral LNs. In response to progressive tumor growth, a small population of draining LN T cells down-regulated l-selectin and increased the expression of CD44 and ...
Summary Simian virus 40 (SV40)-transformed cells express the SV40-specific tumour transplantation antigen (TSTA) on the cell surface and the SV40-coded tumour antigen in their nuclei. TSTA is defined by SV40-specific transplantation immunity, whereas T-antigen (T-Ag) can be detected serologically by indirect immunofluorescence. Both antigens, however, are derived from the A gene of SV40. We therefore analysed SV40-transformed cells for the presence of serologically detectable T-Ag-related molecules. Such antigens could not be detected on the surface of living SV40-transformed cells in monolayers. However, after a short formaldehyde fixation it was possible to stain the cell surfaces of SV40-transformed cells with sera from rabbits immunized with purified SDS-denatured T-Ag, but not with sera from hamsters bearing SV40-induced tumours. T-Ag-related antigens could be detected with both types of antisera by applying a more sensitive 125I-protein A assay. The T-Ag specificity of the binding of hamster SV40
It is well understood by oncologists that tumor growth and metastasis depend on changes in the tumor microenvironment or stroma. Stromal changes have been the focus of numerous research publications and have led to insights in both tumor development and promising new avenues for treatment [1-7].. In order to study molecular changes in stroma from tissue samples, it is necessary to separate tumor tissue from stromal tissue. Without this separation we have sample heterogeneity, which is well known to severely limit the conclusions that can be made about the specificity of molecular changes and their biological causes [5, 7-11]. This separation can be difficult in contexts where tumors are small or not well differentiated. For example, in mouse tumor xenograft models, human cancer cells are grown in immune-suppressed mice [12-15]. These models are popular in oncologic research for studying mechanisms of tumor growth and metastasis, as well as drug response. In such studies, secondary tumors (at ...
Background: The reasons why the lungs are preferential metastatic targets for some human cancers are unknown.. Aims: To unravel the mechanism of tumor pneumotropism.. Methods: Several mouse and human tumor cell lines were genotyped for key oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Their potential for spontaneous lung metastasis was assessed by subcutaneous inoculation into receptive host mice. Mutant oncogenes were silenced via shRNA or introduced using relevant expression vectors. Chemokine signaling was studied using microarray, qPCR, ELISA and immunobloting and was abrogated using chemokine receptor-deficient mice.. Results: Spontaneous lung metastasis co-segregated with the presence of NRAS mutations detected in 3 of 11 cell lines studied. The expected frequency of NRAS mutations based on COSMIC (http://cancer.sanger.ac.uk/cosmic/) was tightly correlated (P=0.0000054, R2=0.652) with lung metastasis at necropsy in 3827 patients with various cancers (Disibio, G. et al.

A competent and expanding vascular supply is a necessary component of the progressive growth of solid tumors because cells in solid tumors, like normal tissue, must receive oxygen and other nutrients to survive and grow (17) . The connection between oxygen supply and tumor growth was first made in the 1950s by radiobiologists who were aware of oxygen as a radiosensitizer and the fact that hypoxic cells in tumors are resistant to radiation therapy (18) . Histological analyses of human and rodent tumors performed by Thomlinson and Gray (18) were the first studies to suggest that regions of viable cells exist close to tumor blood vessels and that these walls or cords of viable tumor cells correspond in thickness to the distance that oxygen can diffuse (1-2 mm3). The tumor cord model implied that hypoxic cells exist in a state of oxygen and nutrient starvation at the limits of the diffusion range of oxygen, and it was hypothesized that tumor cells could proliferate and grow only if they were close ...

While former studies have indicated that T-cell dependent processes mediate CR in hosts bearing immunogenic small tumors, the most universal manifestation of CR induced by immunogenic and non-immunogenic large tumors had been associated with an antitumor serum factor that remained an enigma for many years. In a recent paper, we identified that elusive factor(s) as an equi-molar mixture of meta-tyrosine and ortho-tyrosine, two isomers of tyrosine that are not present in normal proteins and that proved to be responsible for 90% and 10%, respectively, of the total serum anti-tumor activity. In this work, we have extended our previous findings demonstrating that a periodic intravenous administration of meta-tyrosine induced a dramatic reduction of lung and hepatic metastases generated in mice bearing two different metastatic murine tumors ...

Concomitant immunity is a phenomenon in which a tumour-bearing host is resistant to the growth of an implanted secondary tumour. Metastases are considered to be secondary tumours that develop spontaneously during primary tumour growth, suggesting the involvement of concomitant immunity in controlling the rise of metastases. It has been demonstrated that B-1 cells, a subset of B-lymphocytes found predominantly in pleural and peritoneal cavities, not only increase the metastatic development of murine melanoma B16F10, but also are capable of differentiating into mononuclear phagocytes, modulating inflammatory responses in wound healing, in oral tolerance and in Paracoccidiose brasiliensis infections. Here, we studied B-1 cells participation in concomitant immunity during Ehrlich tumour progression. Our results show that B-1 cells obtained from BALB/c mice previously injected with Ehrlich tumour in the footpad were able to protect BALB/c and BALB/Xid mice against Ehrlich tumour challenge. in ...

The bone marrow is comprised of numerous cells of mesenchymal and hemopoietic origin. Of these, macrophages have been implicated to play a role in myeloma disease progression, angiogenesis, and drug resistance; however, the role of macrophages in myeloma disease establishment remains unknown. In this study, the antimyeloma efficacy of clodronate-liposome treatment, which globally and transiently depletes macrophages, was evaluated in the ...

Purpose: The avascular cornea is predestined to study neovascular responses. First experiences with this model date back to 1972, when Gimbrone et al heterotopically implanted tumor fragments in rabbit corneal pockets. Different assays in rabbit, rat, and mouse corneas have since been published including placement of (anti-)angiogenic growth factor releasing pellets or proangiogenic corneal sutures. Using murine corneas is surgically more intricate but advantageous due to the well-defined genetic background and availability of genetically modified animals. In mice, so far tumor-associated angiogenesis has been studied by inserting pre-grown tumor fragments into corneal pockets. Here we describe an alternative approach, where a suspension of cultured tumor cells is directly injected into the corneal stroma.. Methods: One µl of B16F10 melanoma cells suspended in PBS (100.000 cells/µl) and pre-stained with FITC+ CellTracker Green was injected into the paracentral corneal stroma of C57Bl/6 mice ...

This study determines if these immunized mice are protected from a second tumor challenge delivered to an immunologically privileged site. Our previous results indicated that tumors growing within the immunologically privileged anterior chamber of the eye (AC) of naive mice induce systemic T cell tolerance. In these experiments we determined if tolerance could be imposed after mice were previously sensitized. DBA/2 mice were given a subcutaneous immunization with 1 × 106 P815 B7.1+IL-12 cells. One month later, mice received a second tumor challenge of ...
A two-stage modification of the leucocyte adherence inhibition (LAI) test is described, which quantitates cell-mediated immunity (CMI) in vitro with 0.5-ml samples of blood from mice exposed to methylcholanthrene-induced tumors. The total blood cells are washed and incubated for 30 min with tumor antigen, then centrifuged, and the supernatant assayed in the LAI test with normal peritoneal cells. The first stage of the reaction depends on the rapid formation of a soluble mediator which appears to be a lymphokine. By this method, the daily changes in specific CMI were followed in individual mice after syngeneic tumor transplantation ...
This is one of 14 colorectal carcinoma cell lines derived by J.G. Park and associates during the years 1982 through 1985. The line was obtained from a fourth passage nude mouse xenograft of tumor fragments obtained from a patient prior to therapy (see also ATCC CCL-250.1 which was derived from the third nude mouse passage).
In control arm, the tumor grew the fastest within the first couple weeks. As the tumor enlarged, we noticed a decline in growth rate of these tumors. In the control arm, the tumor growth rate was significantly higher in the first 15 days compared to the second 15 days. The tumor volume doubling time changed from 103 h in the first 15 days to 144 h in the second 15 days (P , 0.01). However, in the 2 mg T and 5 mg T arms, the opposite results were found. The data demonstrated that in 2 mg T and 5 mg T arms, the tumor growth rate was significantly lower in the first 15 days compared to the second 15 days, (184 h vs 133 h in 2 mg T arm, P , 0.05, 206 h vs 140 h in 5 mg T arm, P , 0.01). When comparing the growth rates of the control arm and the 2 mg T and 5 mg T arms in the first 15 days, the growth rates were much higher in the control arm (P , 0.01). However, in the second 15 days there was no significant difference in tumor growth rates in the control arm, 2 mg T arm, and 5 mg T arms (Fig. 4). ...
Tumors adapt to an unfavorable microenvironment by controlling the balance between cell proliferation and cell motility, but the regulators of this process are largely unknown. Here, we show that an alternatively spliced isoform of syntaphilin (SNPH), a cytoskeletal regulator of mitochondrial movements in neurons, is directed to mitochondria of tumor cells. Mitochondrial SNPH buffers oxidative stress and maintains complex II-dependent bioenergetics, sustaining local tumor growth while restricting mitochondrial redistribution to the cortical cytoskeleton and tumor cell motility. Conversely, introduction of stress stimuli to the microenvironment, including hypoxia, acutely lowered SNPH levels, resulting in bioenergetics defects and increased superoxide production. In turn, this suppressed tumor cell proliferation but increased tumor cell invasion via greater mitochondrial trafficking to the cortical cytoskeleton. Loss of SNPH or expression of an SNPH mutant lacking the mitochondrial localization ...

Adoptive cell transfer of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes has shown clinical efficacy in the treatment of melanoma and is now also being explored in other tumor types. Generation of sufficient numbers of effector T cells requires extensive ex vivo expansion, often at the cost of T cell differentiation and potency. For the past 20 years, IL-2 has been the key cytokine applied in the expansion of TIL for ACT. However, the use of IL-2 has also led to collateral expansion of regulatory T cells (Tregs) and progressive T cell differentiation, factors known to limit in vivo persistence and activity of transferred TIL. The use of alternative T cell growth factors is therefore warranted. Here, we have compared the effects of IL-2, -15 and −21 cytokines on the expansion and activation of TIL from single-cell suspensions of non-small cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer and melanoma. We applied the K562-based artificial APC (aAPC) platform for the direct and rapid expansion of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes isolated
Consistent with previous observations, c-Met Inhibitors staining exposed substantial regions of hemorrhagic necrosis devoid of CD31 staining along with viable tumor cells and CD31 blood vessels in the tumor rim. Interestingly, CD31 immunostained sections of orthotopic MCA tumors showed a really selective vascular response to DMXAA with intact vasculature noticeable in the neighboring muscle tissue.. Evaluation of R1 values of muscle tissue had been consistent with this observation and showed no statistically important big difference amongst handle and treatment method groups. Ultimately, we determined if the differential vascular response to DMXAA among ectopic and orthotopic MCA tumors correlated with intratumoral levels of TNF, a principal cytokine concerned in antivascular activity of DMXAA. Differences in intratumoral VEGF ranges have been also analyzed. As proven in Fig. 5A, untreated handle MCA tumors established at ectopic and orthotopic tissue sites showed very reduced amounts of TNF, ...
LY294002 price The sole reproducible distinction among wild variety and NG2 null specimens was the lowered num ber of lesions obvious at early time points in the absence of NG2, reinforcing the conclusions acquired from your total mount staining. Progression of transplanted mammary tumors Donor MMTV PyMT tumor fragments were transplanted into mammary extra fat pad web sites in 4 month old female wild sort and NG2 null mice that didnt carry the MMTV PyMT transgene. In wild style mice, 50% of transplantation web-sites had detectable tumors at 40 days post implantation. In NG2 null mice, the time for 50% incidence was extended to 80 days. Comparable outcomes had been obtained in a 2nd experiment using two month previous recipient females. These changes in tumor latency concerning wild kind and NG2 null mice therefore mimic the differences in latency seen with spontaneous mammary tumor advancement. Progression of mammary tumors from cell lines The Py230 and Py8119 cell lines were the two derived ...

The majority of in vivo models of metastasis determine the effect of experimental conditions (usually via knock-out mice) by relying on the end point of secondary tumor formation at a distal site (14). However, the steps occurring between tumor cell injection and metastatic tumor formation are effectively shrouded in these models (15). Despite advances in imaging to monitor these processes, a crucial step of metastasis-the invasion and colonization of cancer cells upon extravasation-remains an elusive target. This study describes a three-dimensional culture system developed to model this phase in vitro and establishes the efficacy of this novel system by demonstrating that cells from disparate phases of melanoma invade the matrix in a manner proportional to their known metastatic capabilities. Specifically, the highly metastatic C8161.9 stayed true to its documented in vivo behavior (21), ferociously staking claim to much of the surrounding matrix (Fig. 1A-C). The sporadically metastatic M14 ...
Cancer is a class of diseases in which a group of cells displays uncontrolled growth and invasion that destroys adjacent tissues, and sometimes send metastasis to other locations in the body. When one is interested in cancer research, mice will be the preferred animal. Murine models of cancer include transplantable models, spontaneous and autochthonous models, human tumor xenografts, orthotopic models, models of metastasis and transgenic tumor models.
