Transfer factor in immunodeficiency diseases.
Journal: Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
April/25/1980
Description

Results of therapeutic trials of transfer factor in a number of laboratories suggest clinical benefit and enhancement of immunological reactivity in patients with primary or secondary immunodeficiency diseases. Long term follow-up of 32 patients with the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome suggested that transfer factor caused conversion of immunologic reactivity, apparent clinical benefit, and prolonged survival in some, but not in all patients. In 18 patients with disseminated (Stage III) malignant melanoma treated with surgery and transfer factor, survival was better than would ordinarily be expected for disseminated disease (78% with mean follow-up of 2 years). A randomized trial has been initiated which will answer the question of the efficacy of transfer factor as surgical adjuvant therapy in malignant melanoma. Studies in human subjects suggested that transfer factor does not cause enhancement of reactivity in normal subjects, when evaluated in a controlled, double-blind fashion. Similar controlled studies in immunodeficient patients are necessary to ascertain whether transfer factor does cause enhancement of immune responses in these patients. Based on these observations, a guinea pig model was developed in which transfer factor caused abrogation of tolerance to ABA-Tyrosine.

Evaluation and management of solitary pulmonary nodules.
Journal: The American surgeon
February/29/1976
Description

The incidence of malignancy in solitary pulmonary nodules found on routine chest roentgenographic survey is unknown but may be as high as 20 per cent. The greatest dilemma confronting most physicians involved in the primary care of patients with solitary pulmonary nodules is sorting out those nodules that can be safely watched from those that should be surgically removed. Certain roentgenographic features of these nodules have been found to be helpful in diagnosis. The only two features that can indicate benign lesions are the presence of dense or concentric calcifications and the stability of the lesion over a period of more than two years. The final decision to operate or not may depend on comparison with old films. Pulmonary nodules present for more than two years without any change in size can be safely followed without operation. Operation is indicated in most newly discovered noncalcified nodules larger than 4 cm and for lesions causing obstructive symptoms.

[Investigation of transcription factor Brachyury (T) expression in human normal and tumor tissues].
Journal: Voprosy onkologii
March/16/2009
Description

By using computational differential display approach we identified a number of UniGene clusters which comprised 90% or more of ESTs from tumor cDNA libraries. One of them was cluster Hs.389457 which corresponds to the human gene Brachyury (T). That encodes a T-box gene family member transcription factor which is pivotal in early embryonal development. To experimentally verify our in silico findings of T expression, PCR was conducted using panels of cDNA from various human normal and tumor tissues. According to our results, Brachynry is expressed in tumors of the digestive tract, testis, ovary, breast, kidney, bladder, lung and brain tunic as well as in lymphomas. Weak amplification signals were picked up from normal tissues of small intestine, spleen and testis. Our results support earlier hypothesis on predominant tumor-related expression of Brachyury gene in adults.
