Inhibiting angiogenesis has become a major therapeutic strategy for cancer treatment. To identify common intracellular mediators, we previously analyzed gene expression profiles of endothelial cells after treatment with angiogenesis inhibitors. Filamin A interacting protein 1-like (FILIP1L; previously known as down-regulated in ovarian cancer 1) was(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, considerable efforts have been directed toward antivascular therapy as a new modality to treat human cancers. However, targeting a therapeutic gene of interest to the tumor vasculature with minimal toxicity to other tissues remains the objective of antivascular gene therapy. Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) is a potent(More)
BACKGROUND Under the direction and sponsorship of the National Cancer Institute, we report on the first pre-clinical trial of the Comparative Oncology Trials Consortium (COTC). The COTC is a novel infrastructure to integrate cancers that naturally develop in pet dogs into the development path of new human drugs. Trials are designed to address questions(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) represents one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. Although infection is often self-limited, a percentage of women with HPV infection will go on to develop cervical precancerous or cancerous lesions. It is estimated that HPV16 is responsible for approximately half of all cervical cancers worldwide. Several studies(More)
