The Sodium Iodide Symporter (NIS) and Potential Regulators in Normal, Benign and Malignant Human Breast Tissue
Introduction: The presence, relevance and regulation of the Sodium Iodide Symporter (NIS) in human mammary tissue remains poorly understood. This study aimed to quantify relative expression of NIS and putative regulators ...
Modern management of pyogenic hepatic abscess: a case series and review of the literature
(BioMed Central, 2011-03)
Background Pyogenic hepatic abscesses are relatively rare, though untreated are uniformly fatal. A recent paradigm shift in the management of liver abscesses, facilitated by advances in diagnostic and interventional ...
Endoscopic resection of nasopharyngeal angiofibroma: The role of radio-frequency coblation
Nasopharyngeal angiofibromas are histologically benign but locally aggressive vascular tumors that can result in major morbidity and mortality. They exclusively affect adolescent male and are rare in patients older than ...
Influence of stromal–epithelial interactions on breast cancer in vitro and in vivo
Stromal cell-secreted chemokines including CCL2 have been implicated in the primary tumor microenvironment, as mediators of tumor cell migration, proliferation, and angiogenesis. Expression of CCL2 and its principal receptor ...
Relationship between CCL5 and transforming growth factor-β1 (TGFβ1) in breast cancer
Purpose Investigate circulating CCL5 in breast cancer patients and healthy controls, along with gene expression levels in corresponding tumour tissue and isolated primary stromal cells. Hormonal control of CCL5, and a ...
Mesenchymal stem cell-mediated delivery of the sodium iodide symporter supports radionuclide imaging and treatment of breast cancer
(AlphaMed Press, 2011-05-23)
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) migrate specifically to tumors in vivo, and coupled with their capacity to bypass immune surveillance, are attractive vehicles for tumor-targeted delivery of therapeutic agents. This study ...
