Article: [Establishment of a HPV-negative cell line derived from xenografted human laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To establish a human laryngeal carcinoma cell line unassociated with human papillomavirus (HPV). Viable tissue of a well-differentiated laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma was obtained and tested negative for the presence of HPV by polymerase chain reaction. Minced tissue fragments were then transplanted subcutaneously into nude mice. After two successive passages, the tumor tissue was seeded into culture flasks and incubated in a medium containing 10% fetal bovine serum, insulin and epidermal growth factor. Tumor cell phenotype and molecular features were determined by various methods. A stable cell line, designated as Lscc-02, was successfully established after 86 culture passages. The cells grew as a monolayer with epithelioid features. The cell doubling time was approximately 39.1 hours. The human origin of the tumor cells was confirmed by karyotype analysis. The squamous epithelial phenotype was demonstrated by the immunopositivity of anti-cytokeratin antibodies and ultrastructural presence of tonofilaments and desmosomes. The malignant nature of the cells was documented by their clonal formation in soft-agar and tumorigenicity in nude mice. Lscc-02 cells expressed carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and were negative for HPV DNA. This newly established Lscc-02 laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma cell line may be a useful model for investigating laryngeal carcinoma unrelated to HPV infection, and the role of HPV in the progression of human laryngeal carcinoma.Zhonghua bing li xue za zhi Chinese journal of pathology 09/2005; 34(8):533-6.
Article: [Application of alpha-cyanoacrylate medical adhesive in fixation of intratemporal facial nerve within chitin chamber].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study the feasibility of alpha-cyanoacrylate medical adhesive in fixation of intratemporal facial nerve when nerve was repaired within chitin chamber, and to investigate the nerve regeneration. Nerve defect of 6 mm was made in left intratemporal facial nerves of 48 rabbits. All the defects were bridged with chitin chamber and were fixed by alpha-cyanoacrylate medical adhesive, surgical suture and natural union. Nerve function test and histomorphological examination were carried out at 1 month and 3 months after repair. It was observed that the nerve was fixed firmly to the chamber with no crack or crease by alpha-cyanoacrylate medical adhesive. The regenerated new nerve fibers were more regular and denser and the neurological function recovered much better in the group fixed by alpha-cyanoacrylate medical adhesive than in the groups those fixed by surgical suture and natural union. The medical adhesive is strong in adhesion and beneficial to nerve repair; repair of intratemporal facial nerve defect within chitin chamber fixed by alpha-cyanoacrylate medical adhesive is feasible, simple and timesaving.Zhongguo xiu fu chong jian wai ke za zhi = Zhongguo xiufu chongjian waike zazhi = Chinese journal of reparative and reconstructive surgery 06/2002; 16(3):158-60.
