BACKGROUND While it is accepted that a majority of invasive breast cancer progresses from a ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) precursor stage, very little is known about the factors that promote survival of DCIS neoplastic cells within the hypoxic, nutrient deprived intraductal microenvironment. METHODOLOGY AND PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We examined the hypothesis(More)

—Existing surveys in visual analytics focus on the importance of the topic. However, many do not discuss the increasingly critical area of mixed-initiative systems. In this survey we discuss the importance of research in mixed-initiative systems and how it is different from visual analytics and other research fields. We present the conceptual architecture(More)
The balance between Th17 and T regulatory (Treg) cells critically modulates immune homeostasis, with an inadequate Treg response contributing to inflammatory disease. Using an unbiased chemical biology approach, we identified a novel role for the dual specificity tyrosine-phosphorylation-regulated kinase DYRK1A in regulating this balance. Inhibition of(More)
We present a case of a 68-year-old woman who developed mantle cell lymphoma in the setting of long-term cyclophosphamide therapy and relapsing granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's granulomatosis, GPA). Adverse outcomes associated with cyclophosphamide therapy are well documented; however, the development of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma appears rare.(More)
