Cervical cancer is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in Thai women. Nevertheless, the preventive strategy such as HPV vaccination program has not been implemented at the national level. This study explored the HPV prevalence and genotypic distribution in a large cohort of Thai women. A hospital-based cervical cancer screening program at Chulabhorn(More)
Compound heterozygous anion exchanger 1 (AE1) SAO/G701D mutations result in distal renal tubular acidosis with Southeast Asian ovalocytosis. Interaction, trafficking and localization of wild-type and mutant (SAO and G701D) kAE1 proteins fused with hemagglutinin, six-histidine, Myc, or green fluorescence protein (GFP) were examined in human embryonic kidney(More)
Resistance of cholangiocarcinoma to chemotherapy is a major problem in cancer treatment. The mechanism of resistance is believed to involve phosphoinositide-3- kinase (PI3K)/Akt activation. Although the platinum-containing compound oxaliplatin has been extensively used in the treatment of several solid tumors, recent data regarding its use to treat(More)
Novel compound heterozygous mutations, G701D, a recessive mutation, and A858D, a mild dominant mutation, of human solute carrier family 4, anion exchanger, member 1 (SLC4A1) were identified in two pediatric patients with distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA). To examine the interaction, trafficking, and cellular localization of the wild-type and two mutant(More)
Hilar cholangiocarcinoma (Klatskin tumor) is one of the most difficult cancers to treat. We demonstrate activation of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt signaling, which is a critical pathway for cell survival, in hilar cholangiocarcinoma cells. However, inhibition of PI3K has little effect on hilar cholangiocarcinoma cell survival. In this study, we(More)
AIM To determine the role of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in prediction of the overall survival of patients with advanced malignant biliary tract obstruction. METHODS We investigated the prognostic value of CTCs by examining two markers, cytokeratin (CK) 19 and human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) mRNA, in 40 patients diagnosed with advanced(More)
Human telomerase consisting of telomerase RNA template (hTR) and telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) provides a mechanism for synthesis of telomere repeats that prolongs life span of cells. Telomerase activity is present in germ-line and malignant tumor cells but not in most normal human somatic cells. This study determined hTERT mRNA level in tissue(More)
