    Notes: Summary Two new estrogen-sensitive variants of MCF-7 human breast cancer cells, CG-4 and CG-5, are described in this report. These cells were derived from a casual contamination by MCF-7 cells of primary cultures from a human adenocarcinoma of the breast and a pleural effusion of a patient with advanced breast cancer, respectively. Careful characterization of these variants revealed chromosomal properties highly similar to and alloenzyme phenotypes identical to those of MCF-7 cells which were simultaneously cultured in the laboratory. MCF-7, CG-4 and CG-5 cells were tested for estrogen responsiveness under identical growth conditions, that is in the presence of culture medium supplemented with 5% charcoal-treated serum. While the number of MCF-7 cells increases by about 40% over the controls in the presence of physiological concentrations of estradiol, the number of CG-4 cells doubles and the number of CG-5 cells triples. All these cell lines have approximately the same number of estrogen, androgen, glucocorticoid, and progesterone receptor sites/cell. Since several difficulties arise in demonstrating the estrogen responsive growth stimulation of currently available human breast cancer cells, these two new variants, characterized by a high and reproducible estrogen responsiveness, afford a new model for studying the mechanisms by which estrogen regulates cell proliferation. The problems related to the careful characterization of every established cell line are discussed.

    Notes: Summary An enzyme-linked immuno-absorbent assay has been developed for the detection of a circulating tumorassociated antigen, 90K, recognized by murine monoclonal antibody SP-2 (Iacobelliet al., Cancer Res 46: 3005–3010, 1986). This assay was found to be simple and reproducible. Using this method, 6% of 165 apparently healthy individuals and 15% of 91 patients with benign breast disease showed 90K levels above 1.7 units/ml. Approximately 50% of 129 patients with advanced breast cancer demonstrated serum antigen levels above 1.7 units/ml. All histological types of breast cancer were positive, and no association between the incidence of elevated 90K levels and other prognostic variables could be detected. The titers of 90K were significantly higher in sera from advanced-stage (3 and 4) patients than in those from patients with limited-stage (1 and 2) disease. Elevated 90K levels were also observed in patients with carcinomas of other sites, including gastrointestinal, gynecological, and lung tumors. By means of the immune blotting technique, the antigenic components carrying the determinants in serum and extracts of breast cancer cells have been identified. The levels of 90K did not correlate with those of CA 15-3 or CEA. The measurement of 90K in sera appears to be a useful adjunct to other available assays for the detection and monitoring of breast cancer and other malignant tumors.

    Notes: Abstract In chronic hepatitis C the rate of relapse afteran end-of-treatment response to interferon may exceed50%. The usefulness of retreatment of relapsers withinterferon in obtaining a complete sustained response and the role of clinical, virological andimmunological features in determining long-term efficacyof retreatment are unclear. We aimed to assess theefficacy of interferon retreatment in obtaining acomplete sustained response, to evaluate whetherincreasing the dose may enhance responsiveness, and toidentify possible predictors of sustained response. Weenrolled 42 patients with biopsy-proven chronichepatitis C without cirrhosis who had previouslyresponded to a six-month course ofInterferon-α2b (total dose: group A, 22patients, 234 MU; group B, 20 patients, 468 MU) and thenrelapsed. All, except one, were HCV-RNA negative at the end of first cycle ofinterferon; most (31/42, 74%) were infected by HCV 1b.Subjects were randomly allocated to receive anothercycle of interferon either at the original dose (group A1: 234 MU, 11 patients; groupB 468 MU, 10 patient) or twice the original dose (groupA2: 468 MU, 11 patients; group B : 936 MU, 10patients). At the end of the second cycle of interferon,24 subjects (57%) had normal ALT and were HCV-RNAnegative, and 16 (39%) had normal ALT, but were HCV-RNApositive. A complete sustained response was obtained ineight patients (19%), at a similar rate in all treatment groups. Complete sustainedresponders were different from the other patients interms of age (35.9 ± 10.4 vs 44.1 ± 8.8,P = 0.027), rate of infection with non-1b HCV (6/8 vs5/34, P = 0.0005), serum HCV-RNA (74,016 vs 321,428median copies/ml, P = 0.037) and serum levels of90K/MAC-2 BP (5.76 ± 3.01 vs 10.25 ± 5.16units/ml, P = 0.02), an N-glycoprotein implicated incellular defense functions. Multivariate logistic analysisvalidated age and HCV genotype as independent predictorsof CSR. Among noncirrhotic relapsers who received atotal interferon dose ≥234 MU in the first cycle,retreatment usually induced end-of-treatment response. Acomplete sustained response was obtained in only one ofevery five subjects. Increasing the dose of interferonabove that of the first cycle did not enhance the rate of sustained response. In conclusionwe might assert that young subjects infected by non-1bHCV and with low levels of HCV-RNA and of 90K/MAC-2 BPare the best candidates for retreatment.

    Notes: Confluent, quiescent Swiss 3T3 cells in culture can be stimulated to initiate DNA synthesis and divide by addition of growth factors to the culture medium. Here we show that hydrocortisone and other steroids which have glucocorticoid activity inhibit the stimulation of these cells by epidermal growth factor (EGF) in contrast to their reported enhancement of stimulation by fibroblast growth factor (FGF). Binding studies using [3H]-triamcinolone acetonide show that Swiss 3T3 cells contain a single class of glucocortioid receptor of uniform affinity (KD = 2.0 nM), and about 34,000 receptor sites per cell. Those steroids which displace bound [3H]-triamcinolone acetonide are also effective in inhibiting the stimulation of DNA synthesis by EGF in the presence or absence of insulin, and the concentration of triamcinolone acetonide required for one-half maximal biological effect is in the same range as the KD. A similar concentration is required for one-half maximal enhancement of the effect of FGF. These results suggest that both the inhibitory and stimulatory effects of glucocorticoids may be mediated via these receptors, the different effects thus being due to differences in the intracellular events triggered by each growth factor.
