Previously, we have observed a link between p53 expression and histone H3 post-translational modifications. Here, we ask if specific post-translational modifications of p53 impact upon histone H3 modifications in a selective manner. We have also screened for internal co-operative effects within the repertoire of p53 modifications. Exogenous p53 constructs(More)
BACKGROUND Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have become the dominant devices for mechanical circulatory support, but their cost-effectiveness is undetermined. This study assessed the cost-effectiveness of continuous-flow devices for destination therapy versus optimal medical management in advanced heart failure and compared the(More)
In this study we have analysed 38 squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) two basal cell carcinomas (BCC), a malignant salivary gland carcinoma, a neurosarcoma and a Warthins carcinoma, all isolated from patients with head and neck cancers. These tumour types have been examined by PCR for loss of heterozygosity (LOH) on both arms of chromosome 17 using nine(More)
We have developed a 40-MHz, 64-element phased-array transducer packaged in a 2.5 x 3.1 mm endoscopic form factor. The array is a forward-looking semi-kerfed design based on a 0.68Pb(Mg(1/3)Nb(2/3))O(3) - 0.32PbTiO3 (PMN-32%PT) single-crystal wafer with an element-to-element pitch of 38 µm. To achieve a miniaturized form factor, a novel technique of wire(More)
We have developed a technique of applying multiple matching layers to high-frequency (>30 MHz) imaging transducers, by using carefully controlled vacuum deposition alone. This technique uses a thin mass-spring matching layer approach that was previously described in a low-frequency (1 to 10 MHz) transducer design with epoxied layers. This mass- spring(More)
Fabrication of high-frequency phased-array ultrasound transducers is challenging because of the small element- to-element pitch required to avoid large grating lobes appearing in the field-of-view. Phase coherence imaging (PCI) was recently proposed as a highly effective technique to suppress grating lobes in large-pitch arrays for synthetic aperture(More)
