UNLABELLED Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is associated with a poor prognosis due to a lack of effective treatment options. In HCC a significant role is played by DNA damage and the inflammatory response. Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) is an important protein that regulates both these mechanisms. The objective of this study was to examine the(More)
An advanced design and implementation of a Control Architecture for Long Range Autonomous Planetary Rovers is presented using a hierarchical top-down task decomposition, and the common structure of each design is presented based on feedback control theory. Graphical programming is presented as a common intuitive languague for the design when a large design(More)
A complete piloting control subsystem for a highly autonomous long range rover will be defined in order to identify the key control functions needed to achieve continuous driving. This capability can maximize range and number of interesting scientific sites visited during the limited life time of a planetary rover. To achieve continuous driving, a complete(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether PARP-1 inhibition sensitizes human liver cancer cell lines to doxorubicin treatment. Both the addition of PARP-1 inhibitor (ANI) and depletion by means of stable siRNA significantly enhanced the growth inhibition induced by the DNA damage agents used. This effect was associated with an accumulation of(More)
Ribavirin remains essential to chronic hepatitis C treatment. This paper investigates the influence of ribavirin priming to steady state before combined pegylated-interferon/ribavirin treatment on viral kinetics, ribavirin trough concentrations, genetic variability within HCV-core, -NS5B and -NS5A, and response to antiviral therapy. A prospective cohort(More)
