Adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5) vectors containing Ad B-group fibers have become increasingly popular as gene transfer vectors because they efficiently transduce human cell types that are relatively refractory to Ad5 infection. So far, most B-group fiber-containing vectors have been first-generation vectors, deleted of E1 and/or E3 genes. Transduction with(More)
Thymic epithelial tumors (TETs) are comprised of a spectrum of histolog-ically distinct tumors that also exhibit differences at the molecular level (1). Surgery is the mainstay of treatment but locally advanced and metastatic TETs can be inoperable and are associated with worse survival (2). Although multi-agent chemotherapy is associated with objective(More)
The propensity of colon cancer to metastasize to bones is very low compared to prostate, breast or lung cancer. The reason for this is not yet understood, although an explanation for the osteotropism of certain primaries has been offered by the 'seed and soil' concept, suggesting that the bone microenvironment provides a favorable 'soil' for metastasis and(More)
