Members of the organic anion transporter family (OATP) mediate the transmembrane uptake of clinical important drugs and hormones thereby affecting drug disposition and tissue penetration. Particularly OATP subfamily 1 is known to mediate the cellular uptake of anticancer drugs (e.g., methotrexate, derivatives of taxol and camptothecin, flavopiridol, and(More)
BACKGROUND The role of organic anion transporting polypeptide 5A1 (OATP5A1) a member of a family of drug transporters that mediate cellular uptake of drugs has not been characterized so far. METHODS Gene expression levels of OATP5A1 in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) cell lines were determined by real-time qPCR and chemosensitivity of(More)
We report the performance evaluation of a non-quantitative reverse-hybridization assay (KRAS-BRAF StripAssay) designed for the simultaneous detection of 10 mutations in codons 12 and 13 of the KRAS gene and BRAF mutation V600E. Dilution experiments using DNA from tumor cell lines or from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) colorectal cancer (CRC) tissue(More)
Current risk stratification for thrombosis in essential thrombo-cythemia (ET) is two-tiered and considers low-and high-risk categories based on the respective absence or presence of either age 460 years or history of thrombosis. 1 In the recent International Prognostic Score for Thrombosis in ET (IPSET-thrombosis), age and history of thrombosis were(More)
Iron deficiency and iron deficiency-associated anemia are common complications in cancer patients. Most iron deficient cancer patients present with functional iron deficiency (FID), a status with adequate storage iron, but insufficient iron supply for erythroblasts and other iron dependent tissues. FID is the consequence of the cancer-associated cytokine(More)
Fifty-one polycythemia vera (PV) patients were enrolled in the phase I/II clinical study PEGINVERA to receive a new formulation of pegylated interferon alpha (peg-proline-IFNα-2b, AOP2014/P1101). Peg-proline-IFNα-2b treatment led to high response rates on both hematologic and molecular levels. Hematologic and molecular responses were achieved for 46 and 18(More)
