Ferritin, a major iron storage protein, is essential to iron homeostasis and is involved in a wide range of physiologic and pathologic processes. In clinical medicine, ferritin is predominantly utilized as a serum marker of total body iron stores. In cases of iron deficiency and overload, serum ferritin serves a critical role in both diagnosis and(More)
We previously showed that adhesion of myeloma cells to fibronectin (FN) by means of beta1 integrins causes resistance to certain cytotoxic drugs. The study described here found that adhesion of U937 human histiocytic lymphoma cells to FN provides a survival advantage with respect to damage induced by the topoisomerase (topo) II inhibitors mitoxantrone,(More)
Recent studies have suggested that the presence of iron overload prior to stem cell transplantation is associated with decreased survival. Within these studies, the criteria used to define iron overload have varied considerably. Given the lack of consensus regarding the definition of iron overload in the transplant setting, we sought to methodically examine(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW New therapies are needed for hormone refractory prostate cancer. Promising new treatments specifically target metastatic disease in the bone, the predominant site of spread in prostate cancer. Recent advances in the understanding of the biology of the tumor-bone microenvironment are leading to the development of new bone-targeted(More)
Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug associated gastric ulcerations are often prepyloric and painless; when recurrent, such ulcers may lead to pyloric scarring and gastric outlet obstruction. We performed a retrospective case control study to seek an association between gastric outlet obstruction and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug use. The use of(More)
