There is currently limited data available pertaining to the global characterization of the cell surface proteome. We have implemented a strategy for the comprehensive profiling and identification of surface membrane proteins. This strategy has been applied to cancer cells, including the SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma, the A549 lung adenocarcinoma, the LoVo colon(More)
Hypermethylation of CpG islands, resulting in the inactivation of tumor suppressor genes, is an early event in the development of some malignancies. Recent studies suggest that this abnormal methylation may be a function of aging. The number of CpG islands that methylate with age is unknown. We used restriction landmark genome scanning (RLGS) to approximate(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing guideline adherence in the management of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in hospitals potentially reduces heart failure and mortality. Therefore, an expert panel identified three guideline recommendations as the most important aims for improvement in ACS care, i.e. timely invasive treatment, use of risk scoring instruments and(More)
BACKGROUND The prescription of guideline-recommended medication for secondary prevention after acute coronary syndrome has been suboptimal in the past. In the present study, guideline adherence and associated patient, care and hospital characteristics at hospital discharge after acute coronary syndrome were studied. METHODS Charts of patients with acute(More)
AIM To assess the comparability of five performance indicator scores for treatment delay among patients diagnosed with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention in relation to the quality of the underlying data. METHODS Secondary analyses were performed on data from 1017 patients in seven(More)
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the western world. Heart failure is a heterogeneous and complex syndrome, arising from various etiologies, which result in cellular phenotypes that vary from patient to patient. The ability to utilize genetic manipulation and biochemical experimentation in animal models has made them indispensable in(More)
