Bone resorption is a dominant feature of many bone metastases and releases factors from the bone matrix that can promote the expression of the metastatic phenotype in cancer cells. Since proteolytic enzymes, including matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) contribute to bone destruction by metastatic tumour cells and host cells, we have examined the effect of a(More)
Tefinostat (CHR-2845) is a novel monocyte/macrophage-targeted histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor which is cleaved into its active acid by the intracellular esterase human carboxylesterase-1 (hCE-1). The in vitro efficacy of tefinostat was characterised in cell lines and in a cohort of 73 primary AML and CMML samples. Dose-dependent induction of apoptosis(More)
A collaborative study was made to determine alkaline phosphatase in casein samples by the rapid colorimetric test. Six to eight collaborators tested 10 unknown casein samples containing various amounts of residual phosphatase with and without the addition of magnesium acetate. Results indicated that magnesium acetate significantly increased phosphatase(More)
A collaborative study was conducted to determine the reliability of a Bacillus stearothermophilus disc assay method for differentiating various concentrations of penicillin in raw milk. Participating laboratories tested 10 different samples (including one negative) in blind duplicate. Triplicate standards were alternated with triplicate unknowns around the(More)
