Tumor regression in patients with metastatic synovial cell sarcoma and melanoma using genetically engineered lymphocytes reactive with NY-ESO-1.
PURPOSE Adoptive immunotherapy using tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes represents an effective cancer treatment for patients with metastatic melanoma. The NY-ESO-1 cancer/testis antigen, which isExpand

Rapamycin induces feedback activation of Akt signaling through an IGF-1R-dependent mechanism
Rapamycin and several analogs, such as CCI-779 and RAD001, are currently undergoing clinical evaluation as anticancer agents. In this study, we show that inhibition of mammalian target of rapamycinExpand

The membrane-cytoskeleton linker ezrin is necessary for osteosarcoma metastasis
Metastatic cancers, once established, are the primary cause of mortality associated with cancer. Previously, we used a genomic approach to identify metastasis-associated genes in cancer. From thisExpand

Genome-wide identification of PAX3-FKHR binding sites in rhabdomyosarcoma reveals candidate target genes important for development and cancer.
The PAX3-FKHR fusion protein is present in a majority of alveolar rhabdomyosarcomas associated with increased aggressiveness and poor prognosis. To better understand the molecular pathogenesis ofExpand

Molecular Subtypes of KIT/PDGFRA Wild-Type Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors: A Report From the National Institutes of Health Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor Clinic.
IMPORTANCE Wild-type (WT) gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), which lack KIT and PDGFRA gene mutations, are the primary form of GIST in children and occasionally occur in adults. They respondExpand

Lymphopenia and interleukin-2 therapy alter homeostasis of CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells
CD4+CD25+ regulatory T (Treg) cells have a crucial role in maintaining immune tolerance. Mice and humans born lacking Treg cells develop severe autoimmune disease, and depletion of Treg cells inExpand
