Pembrolizumab for advanced basal cell carcinoma: an investigator-initiated, proof-of-concept study.

The wnt inhibitor Dkk1 is required for maintaining the normal cardiac differentiation program in Xenopus laevis.

Wnt proteins can activate different intracellular signaling pathways. These pathways need to be tightly regulated for proper cardiogenesis. The canonical Wnt/β-catenin inhibitor Dkk1 has been shown to be sufficient to trigger cardiogenesis in gain-of-function experiments performed in multiple model systems. Loss-of-function studies however did not reveal any fundamental function for Dkk1 during cardiogenesis. Using Xenopus laevis as a model we here show for the first time that Dkk1 is required for proper d...

A novel high-content imaging-based technique for measuring binding of Dickkopf-1 to low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 6.

Dickkopf-related protein 1 (Dkk1) is a secreted protein ligand of low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 6 (LRP6), which antagonises canonical Wnt signalling. Elevated Dkk1 levels have been linked to Alzheimer's disease (AD), with protein blockade protective in pre-clinical AD models, suggesting inhibitors of Dkk1-LRP6 binding may have therapeutic utility against AD. Cell-based Dkk1-LRP6 assays reported in the literature use either modified Dkk1 protein and/or do not possess suitable throughput fo...

Rationale and design of a prospective substudy of clinical endpoint adjudication processes within an investigator-reported randomised controlled trial in patients with coronary artery disease: the GLOBAL LEADERS Adjudication Sub-StudY (GLASSY).

The GLOBAL LEADERS is an open-label, pragmatic and superiority randomised controlled trial designed to challenge the current treatment paradigm of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) for 12 months followed by aspirin monotherapy among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. By design, all study endpoints are investigator reported (IR) and not subject to formal adjudication by an independent Clinical Event Committee (CEC), which may introduce detection, reporting or ascertainment bias.

Dkk1 involvement and its potential as a biomarker in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

Dickkopf-1 (Dkk1)'s dysregulation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of a variety of cancers. It is part of the Dkk family of proteins that includes Dkk2, Dkk3 and Dkk4. This family of secreted proteins shares similar conserved cysteine domains and inhibits the Wnt/b-catenin pathway by causing proteasomal B-catenin degradation, inducing apoptosis, and preventing cell proliferation. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is the 4th leading cause of cancer mortality in the United States due to the late ...

Baicalin induced colon cancer cells apoptosis through miR-217/DKK1-mediated inhibition of Wnt signaling pathway.

To analyze the anti-tumor mechanism of Baicalin in human colon cancer. The MTT assay and colony formation assay demonstrated that Baicalin treatment inhibits the proliferation of DLD1 and HCT-116 cells. The apoptosis rates were induced upon Baicalin treatment and which was determined by FACS. The qPCR and western blot analysis showed that Baicalin promotes expression of DKK1 (Dickkopf), an important antagonist of Wnt signaling pathway, thereby reduces the expression of its downstream protein β-catenin and ...

Apixaban versus Dalteparin for the Treatment of Acute Venous Thromboembolism in Patients with Cancer: The Caravaggio Study.

International and national guidelines recommend low-molecular-weight heparin for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with cancer. The aim of the Caravaggio study is to assess whether oral apixaban is non-inferior to subcutaneous dalteparin for the treatment of acute proximal deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism in patients with cancer. The study is an investigator-initiated, multi-national, prospective, randomized, open-label with blind end-point evaluation (PROBE), non-infer...

Previously-initiated hemodialysis as prognostic factor for in-hospital mortality in pneumonia patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease: Retrospective database study of Japanese hospitals.

Some clinicians keep patients in stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) without hemodialysis for a while. This study investigated whether previously-initiated hemodialysis in stage 5 CKD patients may become a prognostic factor for in-hospital mortality due to pneumonia.

Randomized placebo-controlled double-blind phase II study of zaltoprofen for patients with diffuse-type and unresectable localized tenosynovial giant cell tumors: a study protocol.

A tenosynovial giant cell tumor (TGCT) is a locally aggressive benign neoplasm arising from intra- or extra-articular tissue. Diffuse TGCT (D-TGCT) most commonly develops in the knee, followed by the hip, ankle, elbow, and shoulder. Surgical removal is the only effective treatment option for the patients. However, a local recurrence rate as high as 47% has been reported. Recently, we revealed that zaltoprofen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug possessing the ability to activate peroxisome proliferator-a...

Comparison of the efficacy and safety of tocilizumab for colchicine-resistant or colchicine-intolerant familial Mediterranean fever: study protocol for an investigator-initiated, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an inherited disorder caused by a number of mutations of the Mediterranean fever (MEFV) gene, coding a protein named pyrin that acts as a major regulatory component of the inflammasome. The first-line drug for FMF treatment is colchicine, but 10% of patients with FMF do not respond well to colchicine. Although the efficacy of tocilizumab (TCZ), which is a recombinant, humanized, antihuman interleukin 6 (IL-6) receptor monoclonal antibody, has been reported to prevent FM...

The GO-DACT protocol: a multicentre, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study to compare the efficacy of golimumab in combination with methotrexate (MTX) versus MTX monotherapy.

The GO-DACT is an investigator-initiated, national, multicentric randomized placebo-controlled double-blinded trial, that assesses dactylitis as primary endpoint. Psoriatic arthritis patients naïve to methotrexate and biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, with at least one active dactylitis, were assigned to golimumab in combination with methotrexate or placebo in combination with methotrexate, for 24 weeks. Both clinical (dactylitis severity score and the Leeds dactylitis index) and imaging (hi...

Dickkopf-1 reduces hypertrophic changes in human chondrocytes derived from bone marrow stem cells.

The in vitro process of chondrogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) induces a pre-apoptotic hypertrophic phenotype, guided by the active status of the WNT/β‑catenin pathway. To achieve a stable chondrocyte phenotype for cartilage tissue engineering, it is necessary to gain a better understanding of specific genes that regulate the cartilage tissue phenotype. RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) analysis of tissue samples from bone, cartilage, growth plate and muscle show that Dickkopf-1 (DKK1), a n...

The 24-hour serum profiles of bone markers in healthy older men and women.

The process of bone turnover displays variations over 24 h, with C-terminal cross-linked telopeptide of type 1 collagen (CTX) and osteocalcin exhibiting a nadir in the afternoon and a peak in the night. In contrast, N-terminal propeptide of type 1 procollagen (P1NP) did not display an apparent 24-hour rhythm. Other emerging novel biomarkers of bone, sclerostin and Dickkopf-related protein 1 (DKK1), are markers of osteocyte activity with limited data available regarding their 24-hour profiles. In this stud...

Plerixafor for the Treatment of WHIM Syndrome.

WHIM syndrome (warts, hypogammaglobulinemia, infections, and myelokathexis), a primary immunodeficiency disorder involving panleukopenia, is caused by autosomal dominant gain-of-function mutations in CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4). Myelokathexis is neutropenia caused by neutrophil retention in bone marrow. Patients with WHIM syndrome are often treated with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), which can increase neutrophil counts but does not affect cytopenias other than neutropenia. In this inve...

Single-center retrospective study of the effectiveness and toxicity of the oral iron chelating drugs deferiprone and deferasirox.

Iron overload, resulting from blood transfusions in patients with chronic anemias, has historically been controlled with regular deferoxamine, but its parenteral requirement encouraged studies of orally-active agents, including deferasirox and deferiprone. Deferasirox, licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2005 based upon the results of randomized controlled trials, is now first-line therapy worldwide. In contrast, early investigator-initiated trials of deferiprone were prematurely terminated a...

Association between medical academic genealogy and publication outcome: impact of unconscious bias on scientific objectivity.

Our previous studies suggest that the training history of an investigator, termed "medical academic genealogy", influences the outcomes of that investigator's research. Here, we use meta-analysis and quantitative statistical modeling to determine whether such effects contribute to systematic bias in published conclusions.

Randomized Phase III Study of Alisertib or Investigator's Choice (Selected Single Agent) in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma.

The aim of this open-label, first-in-setting, randomized phase III trial was to evaluate the efficacy of alisertib, an investigational Aurora A kinase inhibitor, in patients with relapsed/refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL).

Study Protocol: Phase-Ib Trial of Nivolumab Combined With Metformin for Refractory/Recurrent Solid Tumors.

Although immune checkpoint inhibitors have shown significant survival benefits in the treatment of several cancers, optimal outcomes have been limited to certain subsets of patients. In a previous study, we found that the addition of metformin to nivolumab, an anti-programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) antibody, yielded substantial tumor regression in mouse models. Further analysis revealed that the number of tumor-infiltrating CD8 T cells had increased markedly. Based on this result, we have launched an i...
