Aberrant activation of the HGF/MET signaling axis has been strongly implicated in the malignant transformation and progression of gastroesophageal cancer (GEC). MET receptor overexpression in tumor samples from GEC patients has been consistently correlated with an aggressive metastatic phenotype and poor prognosis. In preclinical GEC models, abrogation of(More)
Chromosomal inversions within chromosome 2p, resulting in fusions between the echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like 4 (EML4) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genes, are a recent focus of treatment options for non-small cell lung cancer. Thirteen EML4-ALK fusion variants have been identified, affecting eight EML4 exons. We have developed an exon(More)
530 Background: p95 might indicate resistance to trastuzumab (T) (Scaltriti et al. 2007). An immunohistochemical assay has been developed to detect p95, a C-terminal fragment (CTF) of the full-length HER2, by using a monoclonal antibody that specifically recognizes the 611 CTF, the truncated form of HER2 by immunohistochemistry (IHC), and does not recognize(More)
Ki-67 is a nuclear antigen that is expressed in all stages of the cell cycle, except G(0), and is widely used as a marker of cellular proliferation in human tumors. We recently showed that elevated levels of Ki-67 circulating in plasma (cKi-67) are associated with shorter survival in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The current study included 194(More)
Purpose Bevacizumab regimens are approved for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma in many countries. Aberrant mesenchymal-epithelial transition factor (MET) expression has been reported in glioblastoma and may contribute to bevacizumab resistance. The phase II study GO27819 investigated the monovalent MET inhibitor onartuzumab plus bevacizumab (Ona +(More)
Tissue-based determination of Ki-67, a marker of cellular proliferation, has shown prognostic value in solid tumors and hematological malignancies. We developed and validated an electrochemiluminescence-based method for sensitive measurement of circulating Ki-67 in plasma (cKi-67). This assay demonstrated significantly higher levels of cKi-67 in patients(More)
7026 Background: We have reported that some patients with imatinib-resistant chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) express an alternatively spliced BCR-ABL mRNA with a 35-bp insertion (BCR-ABL135INS), resulting in the addition of 10 residues and truncation of 653 residues. Molecular dynamic simulation suggested that this truncation and insertion of new 10 AA(More)
In targeted therapy using tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), measurement of TK activities could be beneficial for diagnosis, identification of potential responders, and monitoring treatment efficacy. Here we evaluated the utility of measuring circulating TK (cTK) activity directly from plasma in leukemia patients positive for the BCR-ABL1. Plasma cTK(More)
