Topical IL-1Ra (anakinra) in the form of gel to treat persistent diabetic skin and corneal wounds
BackgroundAnakinra (aka. Kineret) is a recombinant human IL-1Ra that was developed by Amgen. It is currently used to treat moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis, but also treats neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). Anakinra is given as an IV dose and the drug is no longer under patent. The properties of Anakinra a...

Establishment of a Prostate Carcinoma Bone Tumor Model in Mice
A Wayne State University researcher has derived new tumorigenic cell lines from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3. These cell lines, known as PC-3/IF, when implanted in the femurs of nude mice, provide a xenograft tumor model of bone metastatic prostate carcinoma. The PC-3/IF cell lines are highly tumorigenic, with tumor cells replac...

Establishment of a Metastatic Prostate Carcinoma Tumor Model in Mice
A Wayne State University researcher has developed new tumorigenic cell lines from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3. These cell lines, known as PC-3/PI, are highly tumorigenic when implanted in the prostate of nude mice, providing a xenograft tumor model of prostate carcinoma. In this model, lymph node metastases form from the prima...

Establishment of a New Renal Cell Carcinoma Cell Line and a New Experimental Renal Tumor Model
A tumor cell line from a primary papillary renal cell carcinoma (RCC) (nuclear grade III/IV). This cell line, known as KCI-18, when implanted in the kidney of nude mice provides a xenograft tumor model of RCC. The KCI-18 cell line is highly tumorigenic, with lung metastases forming from the primary tumor as in human renal cell carcinoma. ...

An In Vitro Model System for Studying Development of Human Preneoplastic Breast Disease
Wayne State University researchers have developed a novel model/assay system that recapitulates in vitro the in vivo processes that lead to breast cancer development and progression from preneoplastic tissue. This model is the first that demonstrates in vitro the de novo development and neoplastic conversion of functional alveolar units. Advan...
