Polycomb group (PcG) proteins function as multiprotein complexes and are part of a gene regulatory mechanism that determines cell fate during normal and pathogenic development. Several studies have implicated the deregulation of different PcG proteins in neoplastic progression. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is an aggressive neoplasm that follows a… (More)
Cholangiocarcinoma is the second most common malignant tumor of the liver. We analyzed, immunohistochemically, the significance of cell cycle- and apoptosis-related markers in 128 cholangiocarcinomas (42 intrahepatic, 70 extrahepatic, and 16 gallbladder carcinomas) combined in a tissue microarray. Follow-up was available for 57 patients (44.5%). In… (More)
AIMS Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive tumour following a multistep progression model through precursors called pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PanIN). Identification of reliable prognostic markers would help in improving survival. The aim of this study was to investigate the role as well as the prognostic significance of different cell cycle and… (More)
A new marketing tool is proposed based on games for smart devices like smart phones and tablets. Game experience is extended to real life, with riddles in specific locations, motivating the user to visit sites of interest. A simple prototype has been developed and several marketing scenarios have been evaluated..
