OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to audit the results of parastomal hernia repair. METHODS A retrospective review was made of all patients having parastomal hernia repair at 2 teaching hospitals over a 12-year period. RESULTS Forty-three patients had 51 parastomal hernia repairs. Three types of hernia repair were used: 14 (28%) local suture, 19 (37%)(More)
The CpG-island methylator phenotype (CIMP+) in colorectal cancer (CRC) is characterised by frequent hypermethylation of promoter regions in tumour suppressor genes. Low level methylation of some CpG islands is also seen in the normal colonic mucosa and increases with age; however, it is still unclear what other factors regulate this phenomenon. The first(More)
The CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP+) in colorectal cancer (CRC) is defined as concomitant and frequent hypermethylation of CpG islands within gene promoter regions. We previously demonstrated that CIMP+ was associated with elevated concentrations of folate intermediates in tumour tissues. In the present study, we investigated whether CIMP+ was(More)
We hypothesized that oxidative stress from hyperbaric oxygen (HBO(2), 2.8 ATA for 90 min daily) exerts a trophic effect on vasculogenic stem cells. In a mouse model, circulating stem/progenitor cell (SPC) recruitment and differentiation in subcutaneous Matrigel were stimulated by HBO(2) and by a physiological oxidative stressor, lactate. In combination,(More)
Immunophenotyping by flow cytometry is widely used in the diagnosis and subclassification of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). CD14 is the monocyte-associated antigen most widely used to identify AML with monocytic differentiation (French-American-British classes M4 and M5); however, we observed that CD14 expression is frequently diminished or absent in such(More)
Biallelic protein-truncating mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene are prevalent in sporadic colorectal cancer (CRC). Mutations may not be fully inactivating, instead producing WNT/β-catenin signalling levels 'just-right' for tumourigenesis. However, the spectrum of optimal APC genotypes accounting for both hits, and the influence of(More)
Abrupt cessation of flow representing the acute loss of shear stress (simulated ischemia) to flow-adapted pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells (PMVEC) leads to reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation that signals for EC proliferation. We evaluated the role of caveolin-1 on this cellular response with mouse PMVEC that were preconditioned for 72 h to(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common apoptosis, CLL B-cell proliferation was variably inhibited leukemia of the western world and is characterized by a with addition of TGF-b. In vitro addition of IL-4, previously slowly progressing accumulation of clonal CD5 B cells. Our reported to promote CLL B-cell survival, dramatically relaboratory(More)
The recruitment and differentiation of circulating stem/progenitor cells (SPCs) in subcutaneous Matrigel in mice was assessed. There were over one million CD34(+) SPCs per Matrigel plug 18 h after Matrigel implantation, and including a polymer to elevate the lactate concentration increased the number of SPCs by 3.6-fold. Intricate CD34(+) cell-lined(More)
Whereas the standard immunosuppressive agents foster development of posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLDs), the impact of RAD, a macrolide with potent immunosuppressive properties, and other immunosuppressive macrolides on these disorders remains undetermined. We found that RAD had a profound inhibitory effect on in vitro growth of six(More)
