Platinum based therapy is commonly used in the treatment of advanced gastric cancer. However, resistance to chemotherapy is a major challenge that causes marked variation in individual response rate and survival rate. In this study, we aimed to identify the expression of GTSE1 and its correlation with cisplatin resistance in gastric cancer cells.(More)
Ecthyma gangrenosum is a characteristic skin lesion that is caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) in the majority of cases. Systemic P. aeruginosa usually complicates debilitating conditions like leukaemia, burns and cystic fibrosis. We report a patient with underlying hypogammaglobulinemia who developed ecthyma gangrenosum secondary to P.(More)
In cancer biology, cells and molecules that form the fundamental components of the tumor microenvironment play a major role in tumor initiation, and progression as well as responses to therapy. Therapeutic approaches that would enable and harness the immune system to target tumor cells mark the future of anticancer therapy as it could induce an(More)
The structural gene and cDNA encoding cardiotoxin in Naja naja sputatrix have been cloned and characterized with a view to study the gene protein relationships and also to produce pure protein in large amounts. Using the polymerase chain reaction on the total RNA isolated from the venom glands, the structural gene (180 bp) has been synthesized and expressed(More)
Melanoma-associated antigen (MAGE)-A3 is a member of the family of cancer-testis antigens and has been found to be epigenetically regulated and aberrantly expressed in various cancer types. It has also been found that MAGE-A3 expression may correlate with an aggressive clinical course and with chemo-resistance. The objectives of this study were to assess(More)
Identification of synthetically lethal cellular targets and synergistic drug combinations is important in cancer chemotherapy as they help to overcome treatment resistance and increase efficacy. The Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated (ATM) kinase is a nuclear protein that plays a major role in the initiation of DNA repair signaling and cell-cycle check points(More)
