Multiple regulatory domains within the -100 region of the beta interferon (IFN-beta) promoter control the inducible response of the IFN gene to virus infection. In this study, we demonstrate that the formation of NF-kappa B-specific complexes on the positive regulatory domain II (PRDII) precedes the onset of detectable IFN-beta transcription in Sendai(More)
Background. Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) has been investigated in patients with liver metastases from colorectal cancer (LMCRC). Limited experience and available data suggest that TACE can achieve disease stabilization or improvement, even in heavily pretreated patients. Methods. Patients with LMCRC, ECOG 0-2, who failed at least 1 line of(More)
BACKGROUND Bevacizumab, a humanized recombinant anti-vascular endothelial growth factor antibody, was approved in Canada in 2010 for the treatment of high-grade glioma. We report the effectiveness and safety of bevacizumab in the treatment of patients with recurrent high-grade gliomas at a single institution. METHODS Twenty-seven consecutive patients with(More)
BACKGROUND The thymidine phosphorylase (TP) enzyme is expressed in higher levels in cancer tissue when compared with normal tissue. It is involved in the intratumoral activation of widely prescribed pyrimidine-derived antimetabolites such as 5'-deoxy-5-fluorouridine and capecitabine (Xeloda(®)). The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical(More)
