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 ...

TP53 mutations in familial breast cancer: Functional aspects
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2003)
Mutation in p53 (TP53) remains one of the most commonly described genetic events in human neoplasia. The occurrence of mutations is somewhat less common in sporadic breast carcinomas than in other cancers, with an overall ...
Enhanced immunostimulatory activity of cyclic dinucleotides on mouse cells when complexed with a cell-penetrating peptide or combined with CpG
(Wiley - V C H Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2015)
Recognition of pathogen-derived nucleic acids by immune cells is critical for the activation of protective innate immune responses. Bacterial cyclic dinucleotides (CDNs) are small nucleic acids that are directly recognized ...
HER2 and proliferation of wound-induced breast carcinoma
(The Lancet Publishing, 2003-11-01)
The impact of regime-type on health: does redistribution explain everything?
(Cambridge University Press, 2011-09-22)
Many scholars claim that democracy improves population health. The prevailing explanation for this is that democratic regimes distribute health-promoting resources more widely than autocratic regimes. The central contention ...
MicroRNA-519a is a novel oncomir conferring tamoxifen resistance by targeting a network of tumour-suppressor genes in ER+ breast cancer
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2014)
Tamoxifen is an endocrine therapy which is administered to up to 70% of all breast cancer patients with oestrogen receptor alpha (ERα) expression. Despite the initial response, most patients eventually acquire resistance ...
