Gastric cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed malignancies and remains an important cause of mortality. Several factors are suspected to play a role in gastric carcinogenesis which include diet, genetic factors, and infectious agents .In this study we evaluated the association between few epidemiological factors and gastric cancer risk .We have(More)
UNLABELLED Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a key regulator of cell growth, proliferation and angiogenesis. mTOR signaling is frequently hyper activated in a broad spectrum of human cancers thereby making it a potential drug target. The current drugs available have been successful in inhibiting the mTOR signaling, nevertheless, show low oral(More)
BACKGROUND Approaches in disruption of MDM2-p53 interactions have now emerged as an important therapeutic strategy in resurrecting wild type p53 functional status. The present study highlights virtual screening strategies in identification of high affinity small molecule non-peptidic inhibitors. Nutlin3A and RG7112 belonging to compound class of(More)
The frequency and clinicopathologic significance of the K-ras gene point mutation in stomach cancer remain to be defined. We investigated the frequency of K-ras codon 12 point mutations in stomach cancer using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based method in 94 samples and 100 age and sex matched controls. The overall frequency of K-ras codon 12 point(More)
β2-Adrenergic receptor (β2-AR) plays a crucial role in asthma pathophysiology by regulating, processes of the lung function, and clinical response to bronchodilators. The +46G>A- Gly16Arg polymorphism in the gene encoding β2 adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) has been associated with receptor non-responsiveness after β2-agonist exposure. In the present study, we(More)
