Esophageal adenocarcinoma is a major cause of cancer death in men in the developed world. Continuing poor outcomes with conventional therapies that predominantly target apoptosis pathways have lead to increasing interest in treatments that target the cell cycle. A large international effort has led to the development of a large number of inhibitors, which(More)
Gastric cancers present late in life with advanced disease and carry a poor prognosis. Polo-like Kinase 1 (PLK1) is a mitotic kinase with regulatory functions during G2/M and mitosis in the cell cycle. In mammalian cells, there is an intricate co-regulatory relationship between PLK1 and the forkhead transcription factor FOXM1. It has been demonstrated that(More)
INTRODUCTION Optimal levels of the thiopurine metabolite, 6-thioguanine nucleotides [6-TGN] correlate with remission of inflammatory bowel disease [IBD]. Apart from variations in the thiopurine methyl transferase [TPMT] gene, little is known about other predictors of 6-TGN levels. Obesity adversely affects response to infliximab and adalimumab and clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Various physician- and patient-reported instruments exist for quantification of disease activity in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) but none are widely used in routine clinical practice. A simple patient-reported outcome measure might help inform clinical decision making. We evaluated a patient-reported 0 to 10 score of IBD activity (IBD-10) by(More)
