Androgens and androgen receptor signaling in prostate tumorigenesis.
Androgens and androgen receptor (AR) signaling are necessary for prostate development and homeostasis. AR signaling also drives the growth of nearly all prostate cancer cells. The role of androgensExpand

Inhibition of the NF-κB Pathway by Varicella-Zoster Virus In Vitro and in Human Epidermal Cells In Vivo
ABSTRACT Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is an alphaherpesvirus that causes varicella and herpes zoster. Using human cellular DNA microarrays, we found that many nuclear factor kappa BExpand

Non-competitive androgen receptor inhibition in vitro and in vivo
Androgen receptor (AR) inhibitors are used to treat multiple human diseases, including hirsutism, benign prostatic hypertrophy, and prostate cancer, but all available anti-androgens target onlyExpand

Selective activation of estrogen receptor-beta transcriptional pathways by an herbal extract.
Novel estrogenic therapies are needed that ameliorate menopausal symptoms and have the bone-sparing effects of endogenous estrogens but do not promote breast or uterine cancer. Recent evidenceExpand

Microarray Analysis of Host Cell Gene Transcription in Response to Varicella-Zoster Virus Infection of Human T Cells and Fibroblasts In Vitro and SCIDhu Skin Xenografts In Vivo
ABSTRACT During primary infection, varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is spread via lymphocytes to skin, where it induces a rash and establishes latency in sensory ganglia. A live, attenuated varicellaExpand

Detection and phenotyping of circulating tumor cells in high-risk localized prostate cancer.
BACKGROUND In this study, we aimed to determine the feasibility of identifying CTCs in patients with HRLPC, using a modified isolation procedure using the CellSearch (Veridex) platform, and to assessExpand

Ligand-independent and tissue-selective androgen receptor inhibition by pyrvinium.
Pyrvinium pamoate (PP) is a potent noncompetitive inhibitor of the androgen receptor (AR). Using a novel method of target identification, we demonstrate that AR is a direct target of PP in prostateExpand

Clinical outcome in patients receiving systemic therapy for metastatic sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma: a retrospective analysis.
OBJECTIVES Sarcomatoid metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) represents an aggressive subset of disease, and a definitive therapeutic strategy is lacking. We seek to define outcomes associated withExpand

Rationalizing the development of live attenuated virus vaccines
The design of vaccines against viral disease has evolved considerably over the past 50 years. Live attenuated viruses (LAVs)—those created by passaging a virus in cultured cells—have proven to be anExpand
