Total serum N-glycans associate with response to immune checkpoint inhibition therapy and survival in patients with advanced melanoma

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): BMC Cancer, Vol 23, Iss 1, Pp 1-12 (2023)

Abstract: Abstract Background Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have revolutionized the treatment of melanoma and other cancers. However, no reliable biomarker of survival or response has entered the clinic to identify those patients with melanoma who are most...

Parkin coregulates glutathione metabolism in adult mammalian brain

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Acta Neuropathologica Communications, Vol 11, Iss 1, Pp 1-21 (2023)

Abstract: Abstract We recently discovered that the expression of PRKN, a young-onset Parkinson disease-linked gene, confers redox homeostasis. To further examine the protective effects of parkin in an oxidative stress model, we first combined the loss of prkn wi...

What is the effect of a low literacy talking book on patient knowledge, anxiety and communication before radiation therapy starts? A pilot study

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences, Vol 69, Iss 4, Pp 463-472 (2022)

Abstract: Abstract Introduction Radiation therapy is a common cancer treatment, requiring timely information to help patients prepare for treatment. We pilot tested a low literacy, psycho‐educational talking book (written booklet, with accompanying audio recordi...

Auditory rhythmical cueing to improve gait in community-dwelling stroke survivors (ACTIVATE): a pilot randomised controlled trial

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Pilot and Feasibility Studies, Vol 8, Iss 1, Pp 1-11 (2022)

Abstract: Abstract Background Gait impairment limiting mobility and restricting activities is common after stroke. Auditory rhythmical cueing (ARC) uses a metronome beat delivered during exercise to train stepping and early work reports gait improvements. This s...

Tebentafusp: a first-in-class treatment for metastatic uveal melanoma

Publication Type: Academic Journal
