Maintenance of the structural and functional organization of a eucaryotic cell requires the correct targeting of proteins and lipids to their destinations. This is achieved by the delivery of newly synthesized material along the secretory pathway on one hand and by the retrieval of membranes on the other hand. Various models have been suggested over the(More)
Intranasal administration of therapeutic agents offers a noninvasive method of drug delivery that bypasses the blood-brain barrier and directly targets the central nervous system (CNS) and lymph nodes. We examined whether intranasal peptoid CHIR5585, an antagonist of the urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR), is delivered to the CNS. Peptoids are(More)
Gastric cancer (GC) is a highly heterogenic disease, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in the world. Common chemotherapies are not very effective for GC, which often presents as an advanced or metastatic disease at diagnosis. Treatment options are limited, and the prognosis for advanced GCs is poor. The landscape of genomic alterations in(More)
In many cases, crucial genes show relatively slight changes between groups of samples (e.g. normal vs. disease), and many genes selected from microarray differential analysis by measuring the expression level statistically are also poorly annotated and lack of biological significance. In this paper, we present an innovative approach - network expansion and(More)
Colorectal carcinoma represents a heterogeneous entity, with only a fraction of the tumours responding to available therapies, requiring a better molecular understanding of the disease in precision oncology. To address this challenge, the OncoTrack consortium recruited 106 CRC patients (stages I-IV) and developed a pre-clinical platform generating a(More)
The application of patient-derived three-dimensional culture systems as disease-specific drug sensitivity models has enormous potential to connect compound screening and clinical trials. However, the implementation of complex cell-based assay systems in drug discovery requires reliable and robust screening platforms. Here we describe the establishment of an(More)
