Background. Oral squamous papillomas are benign pedunculated masses that grow most commonly on the palate. These benign lesions rarely cause symptoms. Methods. Here we present the case of a large, elongated squamous papilloma of the uvula causing dysphagia. We also review pertinent literature related to these lesions. Results. This patient underwent(More)
Cancer cells display novel phosphopeptides in association with MHC class I and II molecules. In this study, we evaluated two HLA-A2-restricted phosphopeptides derived from the insulin receptor substrate (IRS)-2 and the cell-cycle regulator CDC25b. These proteins are both broadly expressed in multiple malignancies and linked to cancer cell survival. Two(More)
We have identified eight genes whose expression in human melanoma metastases and ovarian cancers is associated with a lack of Th1 immune signatures. They encode molecules with mechanical barrier function in the skin and other normal tissues and include filaggrin (FLG), tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 2 (TACSTD2), and six desmosomal proteins (DST,(More)
