The involvement of the five thymidine (5T) variant in intron 8 of the cystic fibrosis membrane regulator (CFTR) gene in congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD) phenotype has been extensively demonstrated. This variant leads to alternative splicing of the CFTR gene which results in a wild-type transcript and one without exon 9. Little is(More)
Germline mutations in DNA polymerase ɛ (POLE) and δ (POLD1) have been recently identified in families with multiple colorectal adenomas and colorectal cancer (CRC). All reported cases carried POLE c.1270C>G (p.Leu424Val) or POLD1 c.1433G>A (p.Ser478Asn) mutations. Due to the scarcity of cases reported so far, an accurate clinical phenotype has not been(More)
BACKGROUND There is much evidence involving the KIT tyrosine kinase receptor and its ligand KITLG in the survival and proliferation of germ cells. Animal models and functional studies in humans suggest that this signalling pathway plays a role in male infertility. METHODS We studied three and two single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (rs3819392,(More)
BACKGROUND Lynch syndrome (LS) is an autosomal dominant inherited cancer syndrome characterized by early onset cancers of the colorectum, endometrium and other tumours. A significant proportion of DNA variants in LS patients are unclassified. Reports on the pathogenicity of the c.1852_1853AA>GC (p.Lys618Ala) variant of the MLH1 gene are conflicting. In this(More)
Somatostatin analogues (SSAs) are indicated to relieve carcinoid syndrome but seem to have antiproliferative effects on neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). This is the first prospective study investigating tumour stabilisation with the long-acting SSA lanreotide Autogel in patients with progressive NETs. This was a multicentre, open-label, phase II trial(More)
Based on the mechanism of action, combining somatostatin analogues (SSAs) with mTOR inhibitors or antiangiogenic agents may provide synergistic effects for the treatment of patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). Herein, we investigate the use of these treatment combinations in clinical practice. This retrospective cross-sectional analysis of patients(More)
The Data-as-a-Service (DaaS, or Data Services) paradigm enables an on-demand, service-based access to data, relying on similar principles to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). DaaS permits centralized data quality management, a uniform view and access to heterogeneous data, and enables exposing a richer, domain-specific data model to users. Within this context,(More)
Male breast cancer (MBC) is a rare disease that represents <1 % of all breast cancers (BCs). We analyze the results of a multicenter study performed in Spanish familial MBC including family history of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome (HBOCS) and clinicopathological features. We also study the relationship between BRCA1/BRCA2 mutational status(More)
Meta-models play a pivotal role in Model-Driven Engineering (MDE). They are used to create domain-specific models, and to type model management operations like model transformations or code generators. However, even though creating meta-models is a common activity, it is currently mostly a manual activity, which does not profit from existing knowledge. In(More)
