The later stages of cochlear differentiation and the developmental onset of hearing require thyroid hormone. Although thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) are a prerequisite for this process, it is likely that other factors modify TR activity during cochlear development. The mouse cochlea expresses type 2 deiodinase (D2), an enzyme that converts thyroxine, the(More)
Aalinkeel et al. (1) have recently reported that gene expression of angiogenic factors correlates with metastatic potential of prostate cancer cells. The rationale for the study of Aalinkeel et al. is that a variety of growth factors, among them interleukin-8 (il-8), can induce angiogenesis (2). Further, parathyroid hormone related peptide (PTHrP) acts to(More)
In the present study, we assessed the relationship of serum insulin levels and three surrogate markers of recurrence, T stage, PSA, and Gleason score, in men with localized prostate cancer. Participants in our study were found through urology and radiation oncology clinics, and all eligible patients were asked to take part. All patients were asymptomatic(More)
BACKGROUND Plasma levels of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) have been associated with the risk of prostate cancer. However, the association of IGF-I with specific tumor stage and grade at diagnosis, which correlate with risk of recurrence and mortality, has not been studied rigorously. To determine whether plasma levels of IGF-I and its main(More)
