In 2010 there were more than 200 million cases of malaria, and at least 655,000 deaths. The World Health Organization has recommended artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Artemisinin is a sesquiterpene endoperoxide with potent antimalarial properties, produced(More)
A long-term goal of developmental biology is to understand how morphogens establish gradients that promote proper tissue patterning. A number of reports describe the formation of the Wg (Wnt1) gradient in Drosophila and have shown that Porcupine, a predicted membrane-bound O-acyl transferase, is required for the correct distribution of Wg protein. The(More)
Background Immunotherapies have improved patient responses and survival , though not all patients benefit. Effective biomarkers may help to improve outcomes. Durvalumab is a human IgG1 mono-clonal antibody that inhibits PD-L1 binding to PD-1 and CD80, restoring antitumor immunity [1, 2]. PD-L1 expression on tumor or tumor-infiltrating immune cells measured(More)
