Unique cell cycle control is instituted in confluent osteoblast cultures, driving growth to high density. The postconfluent dividing cells share features with cells that normally exit the cell cycle; p27(kip1) is increased, p21(waf1/cip1) is decreased, free E2F DNA binding activity is reduced, and E2F4 is primarily nuclear. E2F4-p130 becomes the predominant(More)
The addition of replication-defective recombinant adenovirus to plasmid transfection (termed here "adenofection") has been shown to increase plasmid transgene expression in limited studies. Similarly, the addition of cationic liposomes to adenovirus increases adenovirus-mediated gene transduction (termed here "lipoduction"). Here we demonstrate that(More)
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE To assess the interaction of HPV/p16 status and therapy rendered in patients with locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx and hypopharynx. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-seven consecutive patients receiving definitive treatment between 2009 and 2011 for locally advanced larynx or hypopharynx cancer with high-risk HPV and/or(More)
Lick responses to sucrose and maltose (0.01-1.0 M) were measured in nondeprived rats during brief-access taste trials before and after histologically confirmed gustatory neurotomy. Pronounced decreases in sugar responsiveness occurred after combined section of the chorda tympani (CT) and greater superficial petrosal nerves. The additional section of the(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the outcomes and toxicity of high-dose cisplatin (HDC) versus weekly cisplatin (WC) definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for patients with human papillomavirus (HPV) related oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCCOPx). METHODS All patients with p16 positive SCCOPx treated with definitive CRT with cisplatin between 2010 and 2014 at a(More)
Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS) cells often harbor one of two unique chromosomal translocations, either t(2;13)(q35;q14) or t(1;13)(p36;q14). The chimeric proteins expressed from these rearrangements, PAX3-FKHR and PAX7-FKHR, respectively, are potent transcriptional activators. In an effort to exploit these unique cancer-specific molecules to achieve(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (TNMES) therapy in maintaining swallowing function during chemoradiation for locally advanced head and neck cancer. METHODS We retrospectively compared 43 consecutive patients with locally advanced head and neck cancer treated with TNMES(More)
BACKGROUND Human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal cancer is associated with improved survival and treatment response as compared to HPV-negative cancers. P16 overexpression is widely accepted as a surrogate marker for HPV positivity. METHODS A total of 92 serum samples from 75 head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients were examined(More)
Inhibition of polypeptide chain initiation in rabbit reticulocyte lysate by phosphorylation of eukaryotic initiation factor-2(alpha) results, secondarily, in the enzymatic deacylation of Met-tRNAf on the 48 S initiation complexes that accumulate. We have prepared an antibody to a highly purified preparation of the major Met-tRNAf deacylase activity on(More)
After the pathogenesis of thyroid carcinomas was better understood and the role of molecular alterations in RET, BRAF and RET/PTC rearrangement was revealed, several trials using multikinase inhibitors were developed during the last decade for the treatment of recurrent radioactive iodine (RAI)-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), achieving a(More)
