Anti-angiogenic therapy has increased the progression-free survival of many cancer patients but has had little effect on overall survival, even in colon cancer (average 6-8 weeks) due to resistance. The current licensed targeted therapies all inhibit VEGF signalling (Table 1). Many mechanisms of resistance to anti-VEGF therapy have been identified that(More)
Introduction The development of improved coil and gradient technology has increased the range of applications for which MRI is beneficial. The use of magnetic resonance (MR) in imaging the vocal tract and measuring articulatory motion is one of the applications benefiting from this development. Initial studies were based on static image acquisition [1,2].(More)
Testicular germ cell tumours of adults and adolescents (TGCT) include seminomas (SE) and nonseminomas (NS), with spermatocytic seminomas (SSE) representing a distinct entity in older men. SE and NS have gain of 12p material in all cases, whereas SSE are associated with overrepresentation of chromosome 9. Here, we compare at the chromosomal level, copy(More)
The stabilisation of HIF-α is central to the transcriptional response of animals to hypoxia, regulating the expression of hundreds of genes including those involved in angiogenesis, metabolism and metastasis. HIF-α is degraded under normoxic conditions by proline hydroxylation, which allows for recognition and ubiquitination by the von-Hippel-Lindau (VHL)(More)
Altered metabolism is a hallmark of cancer. However, the role of genomic changes in metabolic genes driving the tumour metabolic shift remains to be elucidated. Here, we have investigated the genomic and transcriptomic changes underlying this shift across ten different cancer types. A systematic pan-cancer analysis of 6538 tumour/normal samples covering ten(More)
BACKGROUND ST-246® is an antiviral, orally bioavailable small molecule in clinical development for treatment of orthopoxvirus infections. An intravenous (i.v.) formulation may be required for some hospitalized patients who are unable to take oral medication. An i.v. formulation has been evaluated in three species previously used in evaluation of both(More)
