BACKGROUND Recent studies have provided strong evidence that variation in the gene neurocan (NCAN, rs1064395) is a common risk factor for bipolar disorder (BD) and schizophrenia. However, the possible relevance of NCAN variation to disease mechanisms in the human brain has not yet been explored. Thus, to identify a putative pathomechanism, we tested whether(More)
KRAS is one of the most frequently mutated oncogenes in human cancer. Despite substantial efforts, no clinically applicable strategy has yet been developed to effectively treat KRAS-mutant tumors. Here, we perform a cell-line-based screen and identify strong synergistic interactions between cell-cycle checkpoint-abrogating Chk1- and MK2 inhibitors,(More)

INTRODUCTION Pedicle screw stabilization, the standard technique in the thoracic and lumbar spine, is increasingly used in the cervical spine. Initial studies on the use of anterior pedicle screws (ATPS) in the cervical spine have been recently published. ATPS use has theoretical advantages over posterior stabilization. We have already established a(More)
The technique of pedicle screw stabilization is finding increasing popularity for use in the cervical spine. Implementing anterior transpedicular screws (ATPS) in cervical spine offers theoretical advantages compared to posterior stabilization. The goal of the current study was the development of a new setting for navigated insertion of ATPS, combining the(More)
