Background and objective: The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) plays a major role in cell proliferation of epithelial tissues, and its alterations frequently contribute to oncogenesis. Several common polymorphisms of the EGFR gene have been described, at the level of both coding and regulatory sequences. Some of these polymorphisms are associated(More)
Polyphenolic ellagitannins are natural compounds that are often associated with the therapeutic activity of plant extracts used in traditional medicine. They display cancer-preventing activity in animal models by a mechanism that remains unclear. Potential targets have been proposed, including DNA topoisomerases II (Top2). Top2α and Top2β, the two isoforms(More)
Alkylating agents represent the oldest class of anticancer agents with the approval of mechloretamine by the FDA in 1949. Even though their clinical use is far beyond the use of new targeted therapies, they still occupy a major place in the treatment of specific malignancies, sometimes representing the unique option for the treatment of refractory tumors.(More)
Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths among men. Several prognostic factors allow differentiation of low-grade tumors from high-grade tumors with high metastatic potential. High-grade tumors are currently treated with hormone therapy, to which taxanes are added when the tumors become resistant to castration. Clinical trials(More)
Electrocardiographic mapping (ECM) is a non invasive technique using body surface potentials and CT geometry to reconstruct epicardial maps. ECM is emerging as an important tool not only for diagnostic mapping, but also as a guide for trans-catheter ablation of complex arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. It provides the clinician with an immediate(More)
150 Background: Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the leading causes of death from cancer in men. High Gleason grade prostate cancers are characterized by aggressive tumors with poorly differentiated cells and a high metastatic potential. They are often refractory to chemical castration but still treated with hormone therapy to which docetaxel or cabazitaxel(More)
