BACKGROUND Non muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) has the highest recurrence rate of any malignancy and as many as 70% of patients experience relapse. Aberrant DNA methylation is present in all bladder tumors and can be detected in urine specimens. Previous studies have identified DNA methylation markers that showed significant diagnostic value. We(More)
Phage display is a prominent screening technique with a multitude of applications including therapeutic antibody development and mapping of antigen epitopes. In this study, phages were selected based on their interaction with patient serum and exhaustively characterised by high-throughput sequencing. A bioinformatics approach was developed in order to(More)
Biodegradable scaffolds play an important adjunct role in transplantation of retinal progenitor cells (RPCs) to the subretinal space. Poly(ε-Caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds with different modifications were subretinally implanted in 28 porcine eyes and evaluated by multifocal electroretinography (mfERG) and histology after 6 weeks of observation. PCL Short(More)
In recent years, Karyopherin α 2 (KPNA2) has emerged as a potential biomarker in multiple cancer forms. The aberrant high levels observed in cancer tissue have been associated with adverse patient characteristics, prompting the idea that KPNA2 plays a role in carcinogenesis. This notion is supported by studies in cancer cells, where KPNA2 deregulation has(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the current study was to clarify the sensitivity and complication rate of the radial (endobronchial ultrasound, EBUS) without the use of guide-sheath (GS) and fluoroscopy for lung cancer (LC), by measuring the distance from the orifice of the bronchus to the pulmonary lesion, as well as to analyze factors that can predict the(More)
Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) expressing the photopigment melanopsin belong to a heterogenic population of RGCs which regulate the circadian clock, masking behavior, melatonin suppression, the pupillary light reflex, and sleep/wake cycles. The different functions seem to be associated to different subtypes of melanopsin cells.(More)
To determine the effect of membrane brightness on multifocal electroretinograms (mfERGs), we implanted poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) membranes in the subretinal space of 11 porcine eyes. We compared membranes with their native shiny white color with membranes that were stained with a blue dye (Brilliant Blue). Histological and electrophysiological(More)
Global projections from the World Health Organization rank chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and HIV as the third and eighth leading causes of death by 2030, respectively [1]. An increasingly large number of individuals will consequently face a double burden of disease. The incidence of COPD is relatively high in the HIV-infected population [2],(More)
