Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States,but the precise molecular events leading to prostate carcinogenesis are not well understood. We isolated histologically defined cell populations from prostate cancer and its preinvasive lesions using laser capture microdissection, and performed genetic analysis on(More)
Sepsis is a leading cause of acute kidney injury (AKI) and mortality in children. Understanding the development of pediatric sepsis and its effects on the kidney are critical in uncovering new therapies. The goal of this study was to characterize the development of sepsis-induced AKI in the clinically relevant cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model of(More)
Multiple somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations are frequently reported in human tumors, but the process leading to homoplasmic transformation and accumulation of multiple mutations in the same tumor cell lineage remains a mystery. We address possible mechanisms responsible for the generation of multiple mitochondrial (mt)DNA mutations observed in a high(More)
The diagnosis of metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CC-RCC) can be difficult because of its morphologic heterogeneity and the increasing use of small image-guided biopsies that yield scant diagnostic material. This is further complicated by the degree of morphologic and immunophenotypic overlap with nonrenal neoplasms and tissues, such as adrenal(More)
This article has not been copyedited and formatted. The final version may differ from this version. Abstract Microvascular failure is hallmark of sepsis in humans and is recognized as a strong predictor of mortality. In the mouse subjected to cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) to induce a clinically relevant sepsis, renal microvascular permeability increases(More)
Deferasirox is a new oral iron chelator used to treat transfusional iron overload. Pre-marketing clinical trials revealed little organ-specific toxicity. Increases in serum creatinine were noted in one-third of patients but were mild and non-progressive. We describe a 62-year-old man with myelodysplastic syndrome who developed a progressive decline in renal(More)
Mixed epithelial stromal tumor (MEST) is rare and typically benign renal cystic neoplasm that cannot be clinically distinguished from cystic renal cell carcinoma. Its mainstay course of diagnosis and treatment remains surgical excision. Recurrence and malignant transformation is rare but has previously been described. To our best knowledge, we present the(More)
