BACKGROUND Ulcerative colitis is associated with increased colon permeability resulting in bacterial translocation into the lamina propria. We investigate the importance of the Toll-like receptor (TLR) regulating protein IL-1 receptor-associated kinase M (IRAK-M) using the erosive dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced model of colitis. METHODS(More)
To the Editor: Non-Hodgkin lymphomas are a very heterogeneous group of tumours and mortality varies greatly depending on sub-type. The most common types of NonHodgkin lymphomas are follicular lymphoma (FL) and diffuse large B-Cell lymphoma (DLBCL) which together comprise 60–65% of all Non-Hodgkin lymphomas [1, 2]. However, much effort has been made in the(More)
Irinotecan and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) are used to treat metastatic colorectal cancer. Irinotecan's active metabolite is inactivated by UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 (UGT1A1), which is deficient in Gilbert's syndrome. Irinotecan and metabolites are transported by P-glycoprotein, encoded by ABCB1. 5-FU targets folate metabolism through inhibition of(More)
Parsing for mildly context-sensitive language formalisms is an important area within natural language processing. While the complexity of the parsing problem for some such formalisms is known to be polynomial, this is not the case for all of them. This article presents a series of results regarding the complexity of parsing for linear context-free rewriting(More)
Signalling downstream Toll-like receptors (TLR) is regulated at several levels in order to activate the immune response and prevent excessive inflammation. Altered intracellular signalling may be one reason that repeated stimulation of various TLRs results in hyporesponsiveness and cross-tolerance. We report that TLR cross-tolerance is inducible in the(More)
Down syndrome (DS), caused by trisomy of chromosome 21, is associated with immunological dysfunctions such as increased frequency of infections and autoimmune diseases. Patients with DS share clinical features, such as autoimmune manifestations and specific autoantibodies, with patients affected by autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1. Autoimmune(More)
Toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling is important for the induction of pro-inflammatory cytokines and interferon (IFN)-inducible genes in response to bacterial and viral challenge. Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase-1 (IRAK-1) is a signaling kinase situated downstream of the adapter protein myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88) in the TLR(More)
Genetic heterogeneity is common in tumors, explicable by the development of subclones with distinct genetic and epigenetic alterations. We describe an in vitro model for cancer heterogeneity, comprising the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma cell line U-2932 which expresses two sets of cell surface markers representing twin populations flow-sorted by CD20 vs(More)
Non-linear mixed effects (NLME) models represent a powerful tool to simultaneously analyse data from several individuals. In this study, a compartmental model of leucine kinetics is examined and extended with a stochastic differential equation to model non-steady-state concentrations of free leucine in the plasma. Data obtained from tracer/tracee(More)
