Modulation of sporadic colorectal cancer risk by polymorphisms and haplotypes of mismatch repair genes
Tulupova E., Kumar R.*, Slyskova J., Pardini B., Polakova V., Naccarati A., Vodickova L., Novotny J.**, Hemminki K.*, Vodicka P.

A role of mismatch repair (MMR) in modulating colorectal cancer (CRC) was assessed by genotyping single nucleotide polymorphisms in five MMR genes in hospital-based case- control study. The TAG haplotype in hMSH6 (-556G>T-Ex1-145G>-IVS4-101G>C) decreased a risk of CRC and the GGG haplotype increased a risk of rectal cancer. Although no significant association was found for individual MMR polymorphisms, the hMSH6 haplotypes may modulate the risk of CRC in this population.

Targeting Inflammatory Cytokines Using Adenoviruses: gene delivery of biological therapies in ovarian cancer
Michael A. Salako, Hagen Kulbe, Iain A. McNeish, Frances R. Balkwill

Constitutive TNF-alpha expression is characteristic of the malignant ovarian surface epithelium. Adenoviral mutants hold great promise as gene therapy vectors but their efficacy is hindered by an inflammatory cascade orchestrated by TNF-alpha. We found that delivering TNF-alpha shRNA to ovarian cancer cells using oncolytic adenoviruses could reduce the inflammatory cascade generated by adenoviruses and also had direct anti-tumour activity on the cancer cells.

INSULINOMAS – EXPERIENCE FROM AN INSTITUTION IN SOUTH INDIA
Thomas V Paul*, Ben Selvan**, Jubbin Jacob*, Aravindan Nair** Esther Evelyn J*, Nihal Thomas*,Simon Rajaratnam*, Senthil Vasan K*, M.S.Seshadri*

Background: Insulinoma is a disorder affecting one in 100,000 of the general population. The clinical profile of insulinomas among Indian patients has not been characterized. Aim of the study: To study the clinical characteristics, biochemical and radiological parameters and treatment aspects of adult patients with insulinomas. Methodology: A retrospective analysis of 18 patients with insulinoma who were treated from 1992 to 2004

Bayesian Parameter Estimation for Systems Biological Models of Dynamic Cellular Networks
Jarad Niemi, Lingchong You and Mike West

Dynamic cellular networks determine production of proteins in the cells in our body. The Rb-E2F network is a key example: it controls cell cycle, proliferation and degradation - a key network in almost all cancers. We develop statistical models of such single-cell processes - fine-time scale dynamic network models. Model estimation requires informative priors and custom Metropolis proposals.
