Expression of stress response protein GRP78 is associated with the development of castration-resistant prostate cancer
Poster Nov 22, 2007
This study investigated the role of the GRP78 in prostate cancer progression and the development of castration-resistant prostate cancer, where cancer cells continue to survive despite the stress of an androgen-starved environment. These findings show that GRP78 upregulation is associated with castration-resistant prostate cancer development, possibly in part by augmenting cell survival, and may serve as an important prognostic indicator of recurrence in a subset of patients with T3N0M0 disease.
A Tissue-based Proteomic Study of VEGFR2 in Human Term PlacentasPoster
VEGFR2 is the main regulator of placental angiogenesis and at term is localized in endothelial cells (EC) of the villous vasculature. VEGFR2 immunoprecipitation (IP) of membrane proteins, extracted from the fetal compartment, isolated 30 proteins that were identified by proteomic analysis.READ MORE
The Impact of MRI on Genitourinary and Gastrointestinal Toxicity after Radiation TherapyPoster
MRI has several advantages relative to other imaging modalities in evaluating, diagnosing, and planning treatment for prostate cancer. However, it is rarely ordered for localized disease. While the diagnostic abilities have been studied, little has been done to associate clinical outcomes with prostate cancer patients who received MRI.READ MORE
