BACKGROUND The use of three-dimensional (3D) surface imaging is becoming more popular and accepted in the fields of Medicine and Dentistry. The present study aims to develop a technique to automatically localise and quantify soft-tissue asymmetry in adults using 3D facial scans. This may be applied as a diagnostic tool to monitor growth and dynamic changes(More)
Lung tumors from AC3F1 mice treated with aflatoxin B(1) (AFB(1)), were examined for loss of alleles, point mutations and hypermethylation of CpG sites within the promoters of the two genes in the Ink4a/Arf gene locus. Loss of microsatellite alleles in the Ink4a/Arf region occurred in 22 of 74 (30%) AFB(1)-induced lung tumors. Fifty-one of 61 (83%) tumors(More)
The present study was designed to determine whether: (a) chronic administration of dietary celecoxib (Celebrex), a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, which targets the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzyme, negatively impacts host immunity; and (b) celecoxib can be coupled with a poxvirus-based vaccine to impact tumor burden in a murine tumor model of(More)
