Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and causes over 250,000 deaths each year. Overtreatment of indolent disease also results in significant morbidity. Common genetic alterations in prostate cancer include losses of NKX3.1 (8p21) and PTEN (10q23), gains of AR (the androgen receptor gene) and fusion of ETS family transcription(More)
The ability to predict complete pathologic response or sensitivity to radiation before treatment would have a significant impact on the selection of patients for preoperative radiotherapy or chemo-radiation therapy schedules. The aim of this study was to determine the value of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), vascular endothelial growth factor(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the predictive and prognostic value of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression in rectal cancers treated with preoperative high-dose rate brachytherapy and in mismatch-repair (MMR)-proficient colorectal cancers (CRCs), respectively. We validate the use of receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve(More)
BACKGROUND There is a growing appreciation for radio-sensitiser use in multi-modal cancer treatment models. Squamous cell anal carcinoma (SCAC) is a rare gastrointestinal tumour traditionally treated with concurrent chemotherapy and radiation. Cetuximab, an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor, has demonstrated significant efficacy when(More)
Methionine (MET)-dependent cell lines require MET to proliferate, and homocysteine (HCY) does not act as a substitute for this requirement. From six O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT)-efficient (mer+) cell lines tested, two medulloblastomas (Daoy and D-341) and a lung non-small-cell adenocarcinoma with metastatic potential (H-1623) were most(More)
