Meadows, Gary G.
This collection features research by Gary Meadows, professor emeritus for the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Washington State University. Meadows' overall research area is tumor biology and tumor immunology with a focus on cellular signaling mechanisms involved in immune modulation of tumor growth and metastasis and mechanisms of cell death. A major specific focus is the role of chronic alcohol consumption on innate and cellular immune responses that influence tumor growth and metastasis.
Chronic alcohol consumption enhances myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) in B16BL6 melanoma-bearing mice (Springer Science, 2010)We previously found that chronic alcohol consumption decreases the survival of mice bearing subcutaneous B16BL6 melanoma. The underlying mechanism is still not completely understood. Antitumor T cell immune responses are ...
