Watson et al. use microenvironment microarrays to assess how extrinsic signals within the tumor microenvironment influence HER2breast cancer resistance to the HER2-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor lapatinib.

Rearrangements of NRG1 have been identified in invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma of the lung (IMA), formerly referred to as mucinous bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. NRG1 ligand signals through induction ...
Resistance to HER2-targeted therapy with trastuzumab still remains a major challenge in HER2-amplified tumors. Here we investigated the potential role of MEL-18, a polycomb group gene, as a novel prog...
Uterine serous carcinoma (USC) is an aggressive subtype of endometrial cancer that accounts for up to 40% of all endometrial cancer-related deaths. Recent whole-exome sequencing studies have revealed ...
Mice with a mutation in the transmembrane domain of the schizophrenia risk gene, neuregulin 1 (Nrg1 TM HET), are more susceptible to the neuro-behavioural effects of Δ-tetrahydrocannabinol (D-THC), t...
Resistance to therapies and disease recurrences after surgery or treatment are common challenges in breast cancer management in clinic. Active immunotherapy using human epidermal growth factor recepto...
Our goal is to investigate the use of 89Zr-trastuzumab as a HER2 imaging agent to determine which patients are likely to respond to targeted HER2 agents as single agent therapy. We are pro...
The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the /College of American Pathologists (CAP) recommend that HER2 status (negative or positive) must be determined in all patients with i...
The human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) regulates cell growth and survival. Approximately 15-20% of all breast cancers are HER2-positive, which are an aggressive and fast-growi...
The main goal of the study is to support HIV-infected pregnant women initiated on PMTCT Option B+ during antenatal to adhere to lifelong ART and postpartum care visits through an enhanced ...
This is a multicenter run-in phase Ib / roll-over phase II study of triple targeted drug combination (HER2-targeted small molecule inhibitor tucatinib, CDK4/6 inhibitor palbociclib and aro...
A humanized monoclonal antibody against the ERBB-2 RECEPTOR (HER2). As an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT, it is used to treat BREAST CANCER where HER2 is overexpressed.
A 1974 Federal act which preempts states' rights with regard to workers' pension benefits and employee benefits. It does not affect the benefits and rights of employees whose employer is self-insured. (From Slee & Slee, Health Care Reform Terms, 1993)
The remuneration paid or benefits granted to an employee.
Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
Determination of the degree of a physical, mental, or emotional handicap. The diagnosis is applied to legal qualification for benefits and income under disability insurance and to eligibility for Social Security and workmen's compensation benefits.
