OpenMP is still in the process of being defined and extended to broad the range of applications and paralleliza-tion strategies it can be used for. The proposal of OpenMP extensions may require the implementation of new features in the runtime system supporting the OpenMP parallel execution and modifications in an existing OpenMP compiler , either at the(More)
UNLABELLED This phase II study evaluates the activity of temozolomide and cisplatin administered before radiation therapy in newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme patients, in terms of response, time to progression and survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty patients with measurable disease after surgery, a Karnofsky status > 60, and Barthel Index > 10(More)
Endocrine therapies targeting cell proliferation and survival mediated by estrogen receptor α (ERα) are among the most effective systemic treatments for ERα-positive breast cancer. However, most tumors initially responsive to these therapies acquire resistance through mechanisms that involve ERα transcriptional regulatory plasticity. Herein we identify VAV3(More)
BACKGROUND Radiation-induced DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair can be tested by using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) in agarose-encapsulated cells. However, previous studies have reported that this assay is impaired by the spontaneous DNA breakage in this medium. We investigated the mechanisms of this fragmentation with the principal aim of(More)
BACKGROUND Cetuximab is often combined with radiotherapy in advanced SCCHN. Alternative routes bypassing inhibition of EGFR with cetuximab may overshadow the efficacy of this combination. We undertook this study to investigate a possible role of dasatinib in this scenario. METHODS The SCC5, SCC25, SCC29, FaDu and A431 cell lines were assessed in vitro for(More)

In this paper we present a technique based on code templates, oriented to source to source code transformations for OpenMP parallelization. Our goal is to provide an OpenMP compilation infrastructure that includes a reconfigurable code generation phase, targetting different OpenMP runtime systems or explore different translation strategies for OpenMP(More)
