Selenium is essential to human health, and its deficiency is associated with different diseases including liver necrosis. Selenium is protective against viral hepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The underlying ...
p53 mutation with frequent novel codons but not a mutator phenotype in BRCA1-and BRCA2-associated breast tumours
(Nature Publishing Group, 1998)
The status of p53 was investigated in breast tumours arising in germ-line carriers of mutant alleles of BRCA1 and BRCA2 and in a control series of sporadic breast tumours. p53 expression was detected in 20/26 (77%) BRCA1-, ...

p53 codon 72 polymorphism in bladder cancer-No evidence of association with increased risk or invasiveness
We studied the effect of the p53 gene Arg72Pro polymorphism on bladder cancer susceptibility in a case control study of 121 bladder cancer patients and 114 age-sex matched controls to determine whether this polymorphism ...
Somatic mosaicism for a MECP2 mutation associated with classic Rett syndrome in a boy
(Nature Publishing, 2002)
Rett syndrome is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder that arises from mutations in the X-linked MECP2 gene. It is almost exclusively seen in girls due to the predominant occurrence of the mutations on the paternal ...
A retrospective comparison of allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell and bone marrow transplantation results from a single center: a focus on the incidence of graft-vs.-host disease and relapse
To detect the effect of the stem cell source, allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantations (alloPBSCTs) performed between 1995 and 1997 from human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-identical siblings in 40 patients with ...
