Primary tamoxifen therapy has been widely used to treat elderly women with ER-positive breast cancer in the past. Aromatase inhibitors may be more beneficial than tamoxifen when used as primary endocrine therapy in elderly patients. We aimed to retrospectively evaluate a series of elderly women with ER-positive breast cancer treated with primary letrozole(More)
BACKGROUND This phase I study was performed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of the oral matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor BAY 12-9566 in combination with 5-fluorouracil/leucovorin in patients with advanced solid tumours, and to identify the maximum tolerated dose and the dose for use in future studies. PATIENTS AND METHODS BAY 12-9566(More)
BACKGROUND This phase I study was performed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of the oral matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor BAY 12-9566 in combination with doxorubicin in patients with advanced solid tumours, and to identify the maximum tolerated dose of these agents in combination and the dose for use in subsequent studies.

INTRODUCTION Chemotherapy resistance is a major obstacle in effective neoadjuvant treatment for estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. The ability to predict tumour response would allow chemotherapy administration to be directed towards only those patients who would benefit, thus maximising treatment efficiency. We aimed to identify putative protein(More)
The median survival for patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma remains extremely poor and there is a need for the development of more effective treatment modalities. The epidermal growth factor receptor is frequently over-expressed in malignant pleural mesothelioma samples and therefore may be a potential therapeutic target. Targeted EGFR therapy has(More)
INTRODUCTION Web Application Security Scanners are automated tools to test web applications for common security problems such as Cross-Site Scripting, SQL Injection, Directory Traversal, insecure configurations, and remote command execution vulnerabilities. These tools crawl a web application and locate application layer vulnerabilities and weaknesses,(More)
Malignant pleural mesothelioma is associated with poor prognosis and despite recent advances in chemotherapy, the median survival is still approximately 12 months. Loss of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) protein expression may lead to constitutive activation of AKT resulting in cell survival and proliferation. Small studies reported that PTEN protein(More)
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is used to treat oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer however chemo-resistance is a major obstacle in this molecular subtype. The ability to predict tumour response would allow chemotherapy administration to be directed towards patients who would most benefit, thus maximising treatment efficacy. We aimed to identify protein(More)
OBJECTIVE The Blalock-Taussig (BT) shunt is an excellent palliative procedure for cyanotic congenital heart defects. We reviewed two techniques of performing the BT shunt, median sternotomy and thoracotomy, in relation to morbidity and mortality. METHODS Forty-five modified BT shunts in 41 patients, mean age 93 days (1-1045 days), were performed between(More)
