Circulating tumor cells (CTC) are promising biomarkers in metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), and telomerase activity (TA) is a recognized cancer marker. Therefore, we hypothesized that CTC TA may be prognostic of overall survival (OS) in mCRPC. To test this, we used a novel Parylene-C slot microfilter to measure live CTC TA in S0421, a(More)
PURPOSE Treatment with interleukin (IL)-2 (Proleukin) yields a 10% to 20% response rate in patients with metastatic melanoma or metastatic renal cell carcinoma. IL-2 is known to activate distinct signals within lymphocytes, including the Janus-activated kinase-signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) pathway. We examined the phosphorylation(More)
Radium-223 ((223)Ra) dichloride is an approved intravenous radiotherapy for patients with osseous metastases from castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). In addition to the therapeutic alpha radiation, there is additional (223)Ra radiation generated which produces photons that can be imaged with conventional gamma cameras. No studies have evaluated(More)
Foodborne illness presents a public health challenge in USA. There is an urgent need for the federal government and food industries to expand efforts to prevent any food contamination that potentially could be harmful to human health. The Food Safety Laboratory (FSL), ARS, USDA, is one of the leading laboratories for the development of optoelec-tronic(More)
