SummaryThe prolactin-inducible protein (PIP/GCPD15) is believed to originate from a limited set of tissues, including breast and salivary glands, and has been applied as a clinical marker for the diagnosis of metastatic tumours of unknown origin. We have investigated the potential role of PIP mRNA as a marker of human breast cancer metastasis. Using reverse(More)
BACKGROUND Axillary lymph node status in breast cancer patients remains the single most important predictor of outcomes. Current methods of histopathologic analysis may be inadequate because 30% of node-negative patients recur. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that a multigene reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)(More)
The mode of peptide-based cancer vaccine administration critically affects the ability to achieve a clinically relevant tumor-specific response. We have previously shown (Cole et al., Clin. Cancer Res., 3: 867-873, 1997) that a specific formulation of the polysaccharide poly-N-acetyl glucosamine (p-GlcNAc, designated as F2 gel) is an effective vehicle for(More)
Ion-beam sputtering deposition has been used in two ways, as granular multilayers and as cosputtered film, to elaborate Ag-Si3N4 nanocermets. Multilayer deposition creates slightly oblate clusters, and cosputtering produces two cluster families: elongated clusters within the Si3N4 matrix and larger ones at the film surface. The transmittance spectra of(More)
