SCC of the urinary bladder is also a chemosensitive
Although considered one of the most chemosensitive
solid tumors it becomes refractory to cytotoxic drugs and is often incurable (Abuhammad and Zihlif 2012).
Generally, advanced ovarian cancer is a comparatively chemosensitive
tumor with overall clinical response rates of 70%-80% (8).
Despite this being a small case series, three distinct subgroups were recognised: surgically-treatable conditions, chemosensitive
tumours and non-chemoresponsive tumours.
47) Oxygen chemosensitive
sites are distributed throughout the brainstem from the thalamus to the medulla and may form an oxygen-sensitive network.
Individuals use this in conjunction with cephalic tentacles and a chemosensitive
foot to detect chemical cues indicative of suitable foraging areas, and to find prey (Hughes 1986).
The Sertoli and germ cells are more chemosensitive
than the Leydig cells; a patient with normal testosterone production may therefore have azoospermia.
There are some suggestions that these tumors are less chemosensitive
than pure SCLC, (43,44) but other studies (45) find no difference in prognosis of combined and pure SCLC.
Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation (APBSCT) in the totally outpatient setting for poor risk patients with chemosensitive
In addition, the ventral medullary arcuate nucleus degenerates in MSA with severe depletion of putative chemosensitive
glutamatergic and serotonergic neurons in the ArcN of the ventral medullary surface in MSA (93,95,96).
Lastly, we used an electrolytically-sharpened tungsten electrode to make extracellular recordings of chemosensitive
neurons within individual sensilla (Gaffin & Brownell 1997b).
29) Finally, because oxygen and carbon dioxide are very important for the function of the human organism, numerous chemosensitive
neurons can either obstruct or facilitate openings for stimulations, depending on the varying conditions.
