The therapeutic activity of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-directed monoclonal antibody cetuximab in gastric cancer is currently being investigated. Reliable biomarkers for the identification of patients who are likely to benefit from the treatment are not available. The aim of the study was to examine the drug sensitivity of five gastric(More)
The therapeutic activity of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-directed monoclonal antibody cetuximab in gastric cancer is currently being investigated in clinical studies. Reliable biomarkers for the identification of patients who are likely to benefit from this treatment are not available. In this study, we(More)
The phytochrome (phy)A and phyB photoreceptors mediate three photobiological response modes in plants; whereas phyA can mediate the very-low-fluence response (VLFR), the high-irradiance response (HIR) and, to some extent, the low fluence response (LFR), phyB and other type II phytochromes only mediate the LFR. To investigate to what level a rice phyA can(More)
Incidental durotomy is one of the most common complications in lumbar spine surgery. There are conflicting reports whether a dural lesion is associated with an inferior outcome after lumbar decompression. This study analyzed the effect of incidental durotomy in this specific group of patients (Dura+) and compared the results with the remaining cohort(More)
To sense ambient light conditions in order to optimize their growth and development, plants employ a battery of photoreceptors responsive to light quality and quantity. Essential for the sensing of red and far-red (FR) light is the phytochrome family of photoreceptors. Among them, phytochrome A is special because it mediates responses to different light(More)
Gastric cancer remains a major health concern, and improvement of the therapeutic options is crucial. Treatment with targeted therapeutics such as the EGFR-targeting antibody cetuximab or the HER2-targeting antibody trastuzumab is either ineffective or moderately effective in this disease, respectively. In this study, we analysed the involvement of the HER(More)
In this paper we address the problem of recovering spatio-temporal trajectories of cancer cells in phase contrast video-microscopy where the user provides the paths on which the cells are moving. The paths are purely spatial, without temporal information. To recover the temporal information associated to a given path we propose an approach based on(More)
