BACKGROUND Inflammatory mediators that originate in vascular and extravascular tissues promote coronary lesion formation. Adipose tissue may function as an endocrine organ that contributes to an inflammatory burden in patients at risk of cardiovascular complications. In this study, we sought to compare expression of inflammatory mediators in epicardial and(More)
Antibody-directed enzyme prodrug therapy is a targeted therapy in which a prodrug is activated selectively at the tumour site by an enzyme, which has been targeted to the tumour by an antibody (antibody-enzyme conjugate). Previous clinical trials have shown evidence of tumour response, however, the activated drug had a long half-life, which resulted in(More)
BACKGROUND Reference genes are needed as internal controls to determine relative expression for clinical application of gene expression panels. Candidate constitutively expressed genes must be validated as suitable reference genes in each body fluid and disease entity. Prior studies have predominantly validated oral squamous cell carcinoma associated(More)
The selective non-peptide NK(1) receptor antagonist NKP608 has been shown to exert potent anxiolytic-like effects in the rat and gerbil social interaction tests. In vitro binding of NKP608 in cortical, striatal and rest-of-brain tissue samples from mice, rats and gerbils indicated comparable pIC(50) values for rats and mice (in all three tissues) and only(More)
