In program debugging, finding a failing run is only the first step; what about correcting the fault? Can we automate the second task as well as the first? The AutoFix-E tool automatically generates and validates fixes for software faults. The key insights behind AutoFix-E are to rely on contracts present in the software to ensure that the proposed fixes are(More)
Serum levels of adiponectin are inversely associated with breast cancer risk. In this study, its effect on growth and gene expression of MCF-7 breast cancer cells and MCF-10A human mammary epithelial cells was compared. The antiproliferative effect of adiponectin on MCF-10A cells was more pronounced and was accompanied by elevated transcript levels of(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of a combination of vaginal ultra-low-dose estriol with lactobacilli on the sexual functioning domain of quality of life during the treatment of breast cancer survivors on an aromatase inhibitor with vaginal atrophy. SUBJECTS AND METHODS This was an open-label, bicentric, exploratory, clinical study in 16(More)
Extracellular action potentials of single neurons in motor cortex and rectified and integrated electromyographic activity (EMG) of gastrocnemius and anterior tibialis were recorded while a monkey performed isometric ankle plantar and dorsal flexion tasks. This study determined the consistency of neuronal behaviors across different tasks. Methods(More)
BACKGROUND There has been increasing research on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following childbirth in the last two decades. The literature on predictors of who develops posttraumatic stress symptoms (PSS) suggests that both vulnerability and birth factors have an influence, but many studies measure predictors and outcomes simultaneously. OBJECTIVE(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer among women with about 1.38 million new cases worldwide every year. Most of these patients are postmenopausal and suffer from hormone receptor positive breast tumors. About 50% of postmenopausal women between 50 and 60 years and 72% of women over 70 years suffer from vulvovaginal athrophy (VVA).(More)
INTRODUCTION The polycomb group (PcG) proteins form chromatin-modifying complexes that are commonly deregulated in cancer. The PcG protein BMI-I is overexpressed by various tumours and thus may contribute to malignant transformation. The current study investigated the expression of BMI-I in human specimens of breast, ovarian, endometrial and cervical(More)
Antagonists of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) are being developed for the treatment of various cancers. In this study, we investigated the effectiveness of treatment with GHRH antagonist JMR-132 alone and in combination with docetaxel chemotherapy in nude mice bearing MX-1 human breast cancers. Specific high-affinity binding sites for GHRH were(More)
The management of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) presents a clinical challenge because of limitations in efficacy of current therapies. Novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of CRPC are needed. Antagonists of hypothalamic growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) inhibit growth of various malignancies, including androgen-dependent and(More)
Recent evidence indicates that growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) functions as a growth factor for gastrointestinal (GI) tumours. The tumourigenic effects of GHRH appear to be mediated by the splice variant 1 (SV-1) of GHRH receptor as well as the full length pituitary type receptor for GHRH (GHRH-R). We examined the protein and mRNA expression of(More)
