Advanced squamous cervical cancer, one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in women, still remains a major problem in oncology due to treatment failure and distant metastasis. Antitumor therapy failure is due to both intrinsic and acquired resistance; intrinsic resistance is often decisive for treatment response. In this study, we investigated the… (More)
The platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) signalling pathway has been reported to play an important role in human cancers by modulating autocrine and paracrine processes such as tumour growth, metastasis and angiogenesis. Several clinical trials document the benefits of targeting this pathway; however, in cervical cancer the role of PDGF signalling in still… (More)
During the past four decades, an increased number of similarities between canine mammary tumors and human breast cancer have been reported: molecular, histological, morphological, clinical and epidemiological, which lead to comparative oncological studies. One of the most important goals in human and veterinary oncology is to discover potential molecular… (More)
Different molecular changes have been previously associated with therapeutic response and recurrent disease, however, the detailed mechanism of action in triple-negative breast cancer subtype remains elusive. In this study, we investigated the cellular and molecular signaling of two claudin-low triple-negative breast cancer cells to doxorubicin and… (More)
Tumors act systemically to sustain cancer progression, affecting the physiological processes in the host and triggering responses in the blood circulating cells. In this study, we explored blood transcriptional patterns of patients with two subtypes of HER2 negative breast cancers, with different prognosis and therapeutic outcome. Peripheral blood samples… (More)
This paper studies the viability of GPGPU, by analyzing the speedup of 9 algorithms frequently used in practice. The speedup we have obtained suggests the possibility of implementing fast versions of Levenshtein distance and Knuth-Morris-Pratt exact search, required by many bioinformatics applications.
