PURPOSE del(17p), del(11q), and associated p53 dysfunction predict for short survival and chemoresistance in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) is activated by DNA damage and mediates DNA double-strand break repair. We hypothesized that inhibiting DNA-PK would sensitize CLL cells to drug-induced DNA damage and(More)
OBJECTIVES The genetic aetiology of osteoarthritis has not yet been elucidated. To enable a well-powered genome-wide association study (GWAS) for osteoarthritis, the authors have formed the arcOGEN Consortium, a UK-wide collaborative effort aiming to scan genome-wide over 7500 osteoarthritis cases in a two-stage genome-wide association scan. Here the(More)
The effect of selective decontamination of the digestive tract on the nature and incidence of microbial biofilm formation on endotracheal tubes was assessed. Thirty endotracheal tubes were obtained post-extubation from patients in the intensive care unit who had been ventilated for a 1 to 15 day period and who did or did not receive the antibiotic regimen.(More)
