The growth regulatory activity of the insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs) may be modulated by post-translational modifications such as glycosylation, limited proteolysis and phosphorylation. In this study, we have examined phosphorylation of IGFBP-3 in two breast cancer cell lines: the estrogen receptor negative (ER-ve) Hs578T cell line in(More)
BACKGROUND Cytotoxic chemotherapy can be very effective for the treatment of cancer but toxicity on normal tissues often limits patient tolerance and often causes long-term adverse effects. The objective of this study was to assist in the preclinical development of using modified, non-living bacterially-derived minicells to deliver the potent(More)
BACKGROUND We have harnessed a novel biological system, the bacterial minicell, to deliver cancer therapeutics to cancer cells. Preclinical studies showed that epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-targeted, paclitaxel-loaded minicells (EGFRminicellsPac) have antitumor effects in xenograft models. To examine the safety of the minicell delivery system, we(More)
