[Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of Alagille syndrome].
Guangzhou, China. In Zhongguo Dang Dai Er Ke Za Zhi, Nov 2014
In this disease, the Notch signalling pathway is impaired due to mutation in JAG1 (ALGS type 1) or NOTCH2 (ALGS type 2) gene, affecting multiple organs or systems such as liver, heart, eyes, vertebrate and face.
[Mantle cell lymphoma: Towards a personalized therapeutic strategy?]
Madrid, Spain. In Med Clin (barc), Aug 2014
Advances in the biology and pathogenesis of MCL have unveiled several genes involved in deregulation of cell cycle checkpoints and the finding of subclonal populations with specific recurrent mutations (p53, ATM, NOTCH2) with an impact on disease progression and refractoriness to treatment.
Therapy of advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.
Paris, France. In Curr Treat Options Oncol, Jun 2014
Moreover, there are several new molecular candidate treatment targets for unresectable SCCS including somatic NOTCH1 or NOTCH2 inactivating mutations, ALK1, which could be a good candidate for antiangiogenic therapy and matrix metallopeptidase 7, which enhances proliferation, migration, and invasion of cancer cells.
Clinical risk factors, DNA variants, and the development of type 2 diabetes.
Malmö, Sweden. In N Engl J Med, 2008
Variants in 11 genes (TCF7L2, PPARG, FTO, KCNJ11, NOTCH2, WFS1, CDKAL1, IGF2BP2, SLC30A8, JAZF1, and HHEX) were significantly associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes independently of clinical risk factors; variants in 8 of these genes were associated with impaired beta-cell function.
