A Los Angeles hospital has given UC Irvine a $208,000 grant for research into the use of the body's immune system to combat brain cancer. The grant from the Hospital of the Good Samaritan in Los Angeles to UCI's Cancer Research Institute will support basic studies by Gale Granger, a professor of molecular biology and biochemistry. Granger's approach to the battle against brain cancer is threefold.

Tustin Hospital Medical Center has donated $68,000 worth of cell-culturing and laboratory equipment to Gale Granger, a professor of immunology at UC Irvine, to use for research on brain cancer and ovarian cancer. The gift, which includes centrifuges, incubators and other equipment, will allow UCI researchers to perform in-house culturing of human cancer cells and production of cells for treating cancer patients.

UC Irvine scientists have identified and cloned a substance that appears to block the human body's natural weapons against cancer tumors. The protein appears to prevent both white blood cells and a compound produced by the body's immune system from attacking cancer cells directly, a UCI research team reported today in the journal Cell. The receptor protein may be blocking the beneficial effects of a new cancer therapy now being tested, research team leader Gale Granger said.

"To good genes," toasted John Wasmuth, Ph.D., as he lifted a glass of wine at dinner Tuesday in UC Irvine's University Club. Unbeknown to Wasmuth, a genetic researcher and professor of biochemistry, the highlight of the evening would be when he stepped up to the podium to accept the Research Associates' annual achievement award--a Baccarat vase and $5,500 grant to further his work in molecular genetics. At the time of his toast, the good doctor was still in the dark.

A new blood test for ovarian cancer developed at UC Irvine has become the focus of a national study to determine if eventually it could speed detection of the disease, which often kills its victims by growing undiscovered. With the approval of the National Cancer Institute, 140 women with ovarian cancer will be followed from their original diagnosis through two years of treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy, to see if the test can accurately detect changing levels of malignancy.

Newly released documents show that a cancer-stricken Florida girl was given experimental treatments in a UC Irvine program after intervention from higher officials, and that two cancer doctors conducted "clandestine" research to help her.

UC Irvine improperly charged dying cancer patients and Medicare more than $55,000 for experimental drug treatments in 1995 and 1996, payments tied to a problem-plagued research project that was later shut down, university officials acknowledged Friday. The billing problems were uncovered in a UCI audit launched shortly after federal health officials began investigating reports of unauthorized research by the cancer laboratory's doctors.

A UC Irvine medical committee found sloppy research practices and poor oversight at a Chao Cancer Center lab more than a year before a research project there was shut down for violating university and federal regulations on experimental treatments, UCI records show.

A former UC Irvine cancer specialist who answered a father's pleas to try to save his dying daughter in 1996 now finds himself the target of a criminal investigation by the Food and Drug Administration. John C. Hiserodt sent an unapproved cancer-fighting drug to Miami Children's Hospital as a treatment aimed at destroying a brain tumor in the Florida girl, according to an internal UCI investigation.

The dean of the UC Irvine College of Medicine said Friday that he "can't even begin to understand" how the university hired a cancer specialist who was under federal investigation for falsifying research at a previous job. The specialist, Dr. John C. Hiserodt, according to a 1997 university inquiry, later violated federal restrictions on the use of experimental drugs on cancer patients while he worked at a UCI Chao Cancer Center laboratory.
