OBJECTIVE To evaluate current risk models and scores for type 2 diabetes and inform selection and implementation of these in practice. DESIGN Systematic review using standard (quantitative) and realist (mainly qualitative) methodology. Inclusion criteria Papers in any language describing the development or external validation, or both, of models and(More)
Analogues of the natural product noscapine were synthesized and their potential as antitumor agents evaluated. The discovery of a novel regioselective O-demethylation facilitated the synthesis of the potent aniline 6, which arrests mammalian cells in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle at 0.1 microM and also affects tubulin polymerization. Aniline 6 is orally(More)
BACKGROUND We modelled the efficiency of a personalised approach to screening for prostate and breast cancer based on age and polygenic risk-profile compared with the standard approach based on age alone. METHODS We compared the number of cases potentially detectable by screening in a population undergoing personalised screening with a population(More)
Flap endonuclease-1 (FEN1) is a key enzyme involved in base excision repair (BER), a primary pathway utilized by mammalian cells to repair DNA damage. Sensitization to DNA damaging agents is a potential method for the improvement of the therapeutic window of traditional chemotherapeutics. In this paper, we describe the identification and SAR of a series of(More)
With the development and increasing accessibility of new genomic tools such as next-generation sequencing, genome-wide association studies, and genomic stratification models, the debate on genetic discrimination in the context of life insurance became even more complex, requiring a review of current practices and the exploration of new scenarios. In this(More)
Analogues of the natural product noscapine were synthesized, and their potential as antitumor agents were examined. The discovery of a novel regio- and stereoselective O-demethylation led to the synthesis of several O-alkylated analogues that induced an unexpected S-phase arrest of mammalian cells. Compound 4a was the most potent analogue inhibiting cell(More)
The PHG Foundation led a multidisciplinary program, which used results from COGS research identifying genetic variants associated with breast, ovarian and prostate cancers to model risk-stratified prevention for breast and prostate cancers. Implementing such strategies would require attention to the use and storage of genetic information, the development of(More)
