High lactate generation and low glucose oxidation, despite normal oxygen conditions, are commonly seen in cancer cells and tumors. Historically known as the Warburg effect, this altered metabolic phenotype has long been correlated with malignant progression and poor clinical outcome. However, the mechanistic relationship between altered glucose metabolism(More)
Concurrent with the explosion in the number of publications reporting biomarker discovery by profiling technologies, such as proteomics and pattern recognition, has been the increase in evidence highlighting the susceptibility of these approaches to analytical and experimental bias. The work presented here addresses these timely issues by delivering a(More)
Prognostic markers that can distinguish indolent from aggressive prostate cancer could have substantial patient benefit, helping to target patients most in need of radical intervention, while avoiding overtreatment of a highly prevalent condition. The search for novel cancer biomarkers has been facilitated by the development of technologies for "global"(More)
Recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors are versatile tools for gene transfer to the central nervous system (CNS) and proof-of-concept studies in adult rodents have shown that the use of cell type-specific promoters is sufficient to target AAV-mediated transgene expression to glia. However, neurological disorders caused by glial pathology usually(More)
BACKGROUND The TRansgenic Adenocarcinoma of the Mouse Prostate (TRAMP) mouse model has frequently been used in preclinical studies with chemotherapeutic/chemopreventive rationales. Here the hypothesis was tested using (1)H-NMR-based metabolic profiling that the TRAMP tumor metabolic phenotype resembles that reported for human prostate cancer. METHODS(More)
