Defining biomarkers that predict therapeutic effects and adverse events is a crucial mandate to guide patient selection for personalized cancer treatments. In the present study, we applied a pharmacometabolomics approach to identify biomarkers potentially associated with pathological complete response to trastuzumab-paclitaxel neoadjuvant therapy in HER-2(More)
In this study we investigated the differences in the properties of pellicles formed from stimulated parotid saliva (PS), which contains little or no mucin; and stimulated whole mouth saliva (WMS), which contains mainly two types of mucin: MUC5B and MUC7. By contacting WMS and PS with quartz-crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) and dual(More)
The salivary pellicle is a protein-rich, bacteria-free, self-assembling film that adsorbs to all surfaces within the oral cavity. The pellicle has numerous functions that are vital for maintaining oral health. Currently however, there are no commercially available artificial salivas that accurately mimic the complex film forming properties (i.e. film(More)
Sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) and sodium tripolyphosphate (STP) act to remove stained pellicle from dentition and loosen deposits on tooth surfaces that may become cariogenic over time. This study investigated how SDS and STP impact the salivary pellicle adsorbed onto hydroxyapatite and silica sensors using a dual polarisation interferometer and a(More)
The salivary conditioning film (SCF) that forms on all surfaces in the mouth plays a key role in lubricating the oral cavity. As this film acts as an interface between tongue, enamel and oral mucosa, it is likely that any perturbations to its structure could potentially lead to a change in mouthfeel perception. This is often experienced after exposure to(More)
The co-occurrence of gonadal agenesis alongside hypoplastic derivatives of the paramesonephric ducts has rarely been observed. PATIENT(S) 16-year-old dizygotic twin sisters were referred to our department because of primary amenorrhea. X-ray, bone densitometry, ultrasonography, pelvic MRI and measurement of pituitary, ovary, and thyroid hormones were(More)
Grade 4 unclassified renal cell carcinoma, with a sarcomatoid component (URCCSC) is a rare high grade tumor presumptively derived from all histological subtypes of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Even though rare, URCCSC generates a great deal of interest, as it is a particularly aggressive variant of RCC, that is poorly responsive to chemo-immunotherapy.(More)
