Recombinant DNA techniques are capable of introducing genetic changes into food organisms that are more predictable than those introduced through conventional breeding techniques. This review discusses whether the consumption of DNA in approved novel foods and novel food ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be regarded as being(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease with poor prognosis. Production of large quantities of extracellular matrix and early metastasis are characteristics of this disease. One important step in the development of various cancers is the loss of E-cadherin gene expression or inactivation of E-cadherin mediated cell-cell adhesion. It has been shown that(More)
have a disability. Within that 51 million, about one million have some sort of hearing impairment; this is one million people that may or may not have a fully developed literacy due to their impairment (U.S Census Bureau). I am one out of that million people. I have severe hearing loss in my left ear and moderate hearing loss in my right ear. I am obviously(More)
Here we report an increased Lef-1 expression in human pancreatic cancer, which correlates with advanced tumour stages. As demonstrated by RT-PCR analysis, pancreatic carcinoma exhibit two different transcripts present in pancreatic carcinomas. One transcript was identified as the full length Lef-1 (Lef-1 FL), whereas the second, shorter transcript, lacked(More)
BACKGROUND Resection with curative intention is the cornerstone of treatment in patients with neuroendocrine tumors. A proportion of patients will relapse after R0 resection, but the factors predictive of recurrence are not well understood. METHODS A database established 1998 at the University Hospital Marburg was queried for all patients with documented(More)
