Acknowledgement of the breadth of T-cell pleiotropy has provoked increasing interest in the degree to which functional responsiveness is elicited by environmental cues versus differentiation. This is particularly relevant for young animals requiring rapid responses to acute environmental exposure. In young mice, gammadelta T cells are disproportionately(More)
Antifolates such as methotrexate, raltitrexed, and pemetrexed are among the most effective and widely used anticancer drugs. The antifolates are also among the most unpredictable of anticancer drugs with respect to pharmacokinetics and toxicity. In this study, we assessed the binding of folates and antifolates to the folate receptors (FRs) of human proximal(More)
We report the case of a 59-year-old man with advanced renal cell carcinoma who developed bilateral papilledema while on therapy with sunitinib, a multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). While papilledema has been reported in association with another TKI (imatinib), the association between sunitinib and papilledema has not previously been reported in(More)
Cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) is a rare, autosomal recessive, inborn error of bile acid metabolism characterized by diarrhea in infancy, juvenile cataracts in childhood, tendon xanthomas developing in the second to third decades of life, and progressive neurologic dysfunction in adulthood. The condition is caused by mutations in the CYP27A1 gene that(More)
AIMS Benefits to patients from systemic anti-cancer therapies (SACT) occur at a cost of significant toxicities that can be life threatening. Published data of SACT mortality outside clinical trials is limited with no published Australia data. We aim to establish local outcomes at a regional Victorian oncology center to allow comparison with limited(More)
