Ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) plays a key role in the biosynthesis of polyamines, which are necessary for cell growth and differentiation. ODC expression is very tightly controlled in all normal cells; however, regula tion of its expression is altered in many tumor cells resulting in much higher basal levels of ODC in tumors. To investigate the potential(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an established treatment in advanced heart failure (HF). However, an important subset does not derive a significant benefit. Despite an established predictive role in HF, the significance of right ventricular (RV) dysfunction in predicting clinical benefit from CRT remains unclear. We investigated the(More)
Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a rare malignant cancer of vascular origin that can affect multiple and varied tissue sites. A subtype of EHE, pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (PHE), is more unusual with only 200 reported cases. Of these, only 27 have been classified as pleural in origin.
