This article highlights the current knowledge of mTOR biology and provides new insights into the role of mTOR in different cancers. An active mTOR coordinates a response in cell growth directly through its effects on cell cycle regulators and indirectly by sustaining nutrient supply into the cell through the production of nutrient transporters and also(More)
BACKGROUND This randomized, phase III study compared the efficacy and safety of first-line gemcitabine versus epirubicin in the treatment of postmenopausal women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients aged > or = 60 years (median 68 years) with clinically measurable MBC received either gemcitabine 1200 mg/m(2) or epirubicin 35(More)
Patients with untreated Hodgkin's Disease (HD) often show T-cell dysfunction irrespective of the stage and grade of the disease. Our earlier studies have shown defective mitogen induced blastogenic responses of PHA activated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNC-blood lymphocytes) from untreated HD patients (Moghe et al., 1980) and their reduced ability(More)
Peripheral blood leucocytes from chronic myeloid leukaemia patients in remission were tested for inhibition of migration in presence of solubilized membrane antigens from leukaemic cells in 15 cases. Eight out of 9 autochthonous combinations (88-8%) and 35/49 allogenic combinations (71-4%) showed inhibition of migration. Antigens prepared from relapse(More)
We report the natural killer (NK) and lymphokine activated killer (LAK) cell activities in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) from untreated patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) and from healthy donors. The frequency of LAK cell precursors was also studied using limiting dilution analysis (LDA). About 75% of the HD patients had normal NK activity. There was(More)
Hodgkin's disease (HD) is often described as a lymphoid disorder associated with T cell hyporesponsiveness even in the early stages of the disease (Kaplan, 1981; Kumar & Penny, 1982). Our earlier studies revealed that HD patients had normal levels of T and B cells in circulation, while they exhibited decreased mitogen (PHA) responsiveness as assessed by(More)
Lymphocytes from 13 chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) patients in remission were tested for their ability to differentiate in vitro into a cell population cytotoxic to autochthonous target leukaemic cells. CML remission lymphocytes were cultured in vitro with autochthonous leukaemic cells and allogeneic normal lymphocytes from an unrelated donor, singly or in(More)
Sixteen chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) patients in remission were tested with solubilized membrane antigens from CML leukaemic cells, CML blasts, AML blasts and ALL blasts for cellular immunity in vitro by lymphocyte transformation (LT) and leucocyte migration inhibition (LMI) assays. Twelve CML patients in remission were tested with allogeneic(More)
Recently an association between breast cancer and inflammation has emerged as the seventh hallmark of cancer. Chronic inflammation is a key contributor in the development and progression of carcinogenesis. Inflammatory pathways play an important role in the causation of breast cancer. C-reactive protein (CRP) an acute-phase reactant inflammatory protein is(More)
Saree is a common, traditional garment of Indian women, wrapped around the waist is tightened by a thick cord and with one end draped over the shoulder. Tight knot in the same place, sweat, soiling and continuous use can cause pigmentation, scaling of the waist and even transform to malignancy. We present here a case of saree cancer successfully managed(More)
