Ex vivo coronary atherosclerotic plaque characterization with multi-detector-row CT
Multi-detector-row CT angiography (CTA) is a new technology that allows for non-invasive investigation of coronary atherosclerosis in patients. The relation between the morphology of atheroscleroticExpand

Targeted delivery of gemcitabine to pancreatic adenocarcinoma using cetuximab as a targeting agent.
One of the key challenges in anticancer therapy is the toxicity and poor bioavailability of the anticancer drugs. Nanotechnology can play a pivotal role by delivering drugs in a targeted fashion toExpand

A role for cancer stem cells in therapy resistance: cellular and molecular mechanisms.
Similar to normal tissue, many tumors have a hierarchical organization where tumorigenic cancer stem cells (CSCs) differentiate into non-tumorigenic progenies. A host of studies have demonstratedExpand

Inactivation of Brca2 promotes Trp53-associated but inhibits KrasG12D-dependent pancreatic cancer development in mice.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Inherited mutations in the BRCA2 tumor suppressor have been associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer. To establish the contribution of Brca2 to pancreatic cancer weExpand

Multidetector-row computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of atherosclerotic lesions in human ex vivo coronary arteries.
In the present study, we tested the ability of multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify and retrospectively characterize atherosclerotic lesionsExpand

Prognostic relevance of 20q13 gains in sporadic colorectal cancers: a FISH analysis
Background: Amplification of 20q13 is a frequent chromosomal alteration in solid tumors and harbors a number of putative oncogenes (CAS/CSE1‐L, NABC1, or Aurora2). Amplifications on 20q13 have beenExpand

RalA regulates vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) synthesis in prostate cancer cells during androgen ablation
Prostate cancer mortality is primarily due to failure to cure patients with metastatic disease. In its early stages, prostate cancer growth is enhanced by androgens. As such, the primary therapy forExpand

High serum levels of Dickkopf-1 are associated with a poor prognosis in prostate cancer patients
BackgroundThe Wnt inhibitor Dickkopf-1 (DKK-1) has been linked to the progression of malignant bone disease by impairing osteoblast activity. In addition, there is increasing data to suggest directExpand
