Proteolysis-inducing factor, a cachexia-inducing tumour product, is an N-glycosylated peptide with homology to the unglycosylated neuronal survival peptide Y-P30 and a predicted product of the dermcidin gene, a pro-survival oncogene in breast cancer. We aimed to investigate whether dermcidin is pro-survival in liver cells, in which proteolysis-inducing… (More)
This paper explores the nature of service recovery encounters, particularly the qualities and behaviours that male and female students expect from professors in personal service recovery encounters. For this purpose, 40 semi-standardized laddering interviews were conducted (with 20 male and 20 female respondents) in order to gain a deeper understanding of… (More)
Dermcidin acts as a survival factor in a variety of cancer cell lines under hypoxia or oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to evaluate dermcidin expression in cell lines following simulation of tumour microenvironmental conditions and in a range of primary tumours. Tumour tissues were collected from patients with oesophageal (28 samples), gastric… (More)

Interactions between tumour cells and the microenvironment are increasingly recognised to have an influence on cancer progression. In pancreatic carcinoma, a highly desmoplastic stroma with abnormal extracellular matrix (ECM) protein and interleukin-8 (IL-8) expression is seen. To investigate whether the ECM may further contribute to abnormalities in the… (More)
We studied the effects of EMLA on tourniquet pain in 10 healthy male volunteers. The tourniquet inflation time which was tolerated was significantly longer with EMLA (46.4 (SEM 3.5) min) compared with placebo (37.5 (2.7) min) (P less than 0.05). Linear analogue pain scores increased in both groups over the study period, but were significantly less in the… (More)
