SOX1 antibodies are markers of paraneoplastic Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: We reported that 43% of patients with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) had an antibody called anti-glial nuclear antibody (AGNA), defined by the immunoreaction ...
Variation in the attachment of Streptococcus pneumoniae to human pharyngeal epithelial cells after treatment with S-carboxymethylcysteine
S-carboxymethylcysteine (S-CMC) is a mucolytic agent that can prevent respiratory infection by decreasing the attachment of respiratory pathogens to human pharyngeal epithelial cells (HPECs). Streptococcus pneumoniae is a ...

Analysis of skewed X-chromosome inactivation in females with rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune thyroid diseases
(BioMed Central, 2009)
Introduction The majority of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITDs) are characterized by a striking female predominance superimposed on a predisposing genetic background. ...
Increased frequency of extremely skewed X chromosome inactivation in juvenile idiopathic arthritis
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2009)
Objective. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is a childhood rheumatic disease of unknown etiology. Two subgroups of JIA, i.e., oligoarticular and polyarticular, are thought to have an autoimmune component, and show a ...
A resampling-based meta-analysis for detection of differential gene expression in breast cancer
(BioMed Central, 2008)
Background: Accuracy in the diagnosis of breast cancer and classification of cancer subtypes has improved over the years with the development of well-established immunohistopathological criteria. More recently, diagnostic ...
Discrimination against teenagers in the mall environment: a case from Ankara, Turkey
(Libra Publishers, 2009-02)
Teenagers spend much of their leisure time at shopping malls which is a result of factors such as parental constraint due to the incivility of the streets, financial dependence, and limited financial resources. Migros, a ...
An investigation of microRNAs mapping to breast cancer related genomic gain and loss regions
Various regions of amplification or loss are observed in breast tumors as a manifestation of genomic instability. To date, numerous oncogenes or tumor suppressors on some of these regions have been characterized. An ...
Quantification of SLIT-ROBO transcripts in hepatocellular carcinoma reveals two groups of genes with coordinate expression
(BioMed Central, 2008)
Background: SLIT-ROBO families of proteins mediate axon pathfinding and their expression is not solely confined to nervous system. Aberrant expression of SLIT-ROBO genes was repeatedly shown in a wide variety of cancers, ...
