Ahi-1 (Abelson helper integration site 1) is a novel gene frequently activated by provirus insertional mutagenesis in murine leukemias and lymphomas. Its involvement in human leukemogenesis is demonstrated by gross perturbations in its expression in human leukemia cells, particularly in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma cell lines where increases in AHI-1(More)
Burkitt and Burkitt-like lymphomas are rapidly growing tumors which require specialized therapy. Although intensive, multi-agent regimens have been effective in children, results are more variable in adults. Magrath et al. previously described a regimen that was highly effective in children and young adults. This phase II study of a modified Magrath regimen(More)
Vitamin D derivatives, including its physiological form 1α,25(OH)2 vitamin D3 (1,25D), have anti-tumor actions demonstrated in cell culture and confirmatory epidemiological associations are frequently reported. However, their promise for use in the cancer clinic is still incompletely fulfilled, suggesting that a better understanding of the molecular events(More)
Purpose Alterations in myocardial perfusion are crucial for coronary artery disease (CAD). In nuclear medicine a risk assessment is established that can reveal endothelial dysfunction which is the first step towards CAD: the cold pressor test (CPT) [1, 2]. Nuclear medicine provides the opportunity to quantify myocardial blood flow but suffers from two main(More)
