OBJECTIVES Accumulating evidence suggests that non-T, non-B cell CD4+CD56+ neoplasms with lymphoblastic morphology include clinically and immunophenotypically diverse entities. Although their cells of origin or classification are still controversial several entities clearly represent a distinct type of neoplasms that are clinically aggressive. METHODS In(More)
Drug resistance is one of the most significant challenges in the treatment of various types of malignancies, however most of the experimental and clinical data in multidrug resistance (MDR) has been obtained in leukemias. MDR is the term that describes innate or acquired resistance of tumor cells to a wide range of anticancer drugs. As its presence(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorder caused by CAG repeat expansion in the IT-15 gene coding for huntingtin. The mechanism of neuronal degeneration induced by the mutant huntingtin is not known. Apoptosis may play a role in it. Huntingtin is widely expressed in the cells, so abnormalities can be expected also in(More)
ATP-binding cassette sub-family B member 1 (ABCB1) [P-glycoprotein (P-gp), multidrug resistance protein 1 (MDR1)] can affect the pharmacokinetics, safety, and efficacy of drugs making it important to identify compounds that interact with ABCB1. The ATPase assay and vesicular transport (VT) assay are membrane based assays that can be used to measure the(More)
BACKGROUND Lightning-related injuries most often involve impairment of the functions of the central and peripheral nervous systems, usually including cognitive dysfunctions. We evaluated the cognitive deficit of a patient who had survived a lightning strike and measured the improvement after her cognitive training. This therapeutic method appears to be a(More)
Accurate determination of potential drug-drug interaction mediated by efflux transporters (tDDI) is crucial to assess the risk of pharmacokinetic interaction and toxicity of drugs. Passive permeability and uptake transporter mediated transport are important covariates of cell-based inhibition assays that need to be taken into consideration when performing(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is an unwanted phenomenon, that may cause therapy failure in several neoplasms including hematological malignancies. The purpose of any type of laboratory MDR assay is to reliably identify such patients and to provide useful data to clinicians with a relatively short turnaround time. MDR can be multicausal and several previous(More)
The polymorphism of apolipoprotein E (apoE) has been recognized as a genetic risk factor in different neurodegenerative disorders, with or without tau protein- related neuropathology, but few published epidemiological data are available as concerns the association of different apoE alleles with two relatively rare forms of dementia, Pick's disease (PiD) and(More)
AIMS Dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a trinucleotide repeat expansion. The disease mainly occurs amongst the Japanese and is extremely rare in the European population. The characteristic clinical symptoms are cerebellar ataxia, dementia, choreoathetoid movements, epileptic seizures and(More)
