Chronic neutrophilic leukemia (CNL) is a rare disease grouped by World Health Organization under the broader category of chronic myeloproliferative diseases. It is a diagnosis of exclusion in patients with sustained mature neutrophilia and splenomegaly with no evidence of other myeloproliferative diseases or reactive neutrophilia. JAK2V617F mutation has(More)
Malignant melanoma (MM) is characterized by aggressive metastasis and high mortality rate. Microtubule-associated proteins 2 (MAP2) is expressed abundantly in majority of melanocytic nevi and primary melanomas, but absent in metastatic melanomas. To determine whether MAP2 correlates with tumor progression of MM, we investigated the effects of MAP2(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is characterized by alterations in multiple genes. High expression of CD147 on the surface of HCC cells promotes proliferation. The monoclonal antibody HAb18 recognizes CD147. We constructed an oncolytic adenoviral vector to express HAb18 (ZD55-HAb18) in HCC cells. Interleukin 24 (IL24) was co-expressed through the use of an(More)
The M2 isoform of pyruvate kinase (PKM2) is a key driver of glycolysis in cancer cells and has critical 'non-metabolic' functions in some cancers; however, the role of PKM2 in pancreatic cancer remains unclear. The aim of the current study was to elucidate the role of PKM2 in pancreatic cancer progression and the potential of PKM2 as a therapeutic target.(More)
