Entry Inhibitoren: Neue Formen der HIV-Therapie

HIV / AIDS ist durch wissenschaftlichen Fortschritt zu einer chronisch behandelbaren Erkrankung geworden.
Hierzu haben ein besseres Verständnis der Virusreplikation, die Möglichkeit, die Virusbelastung im Blut direkt zu messen, sowie neue Medikamente beigetragen.
Die Klasse der access Inhibitoren- Maraviroc (Celsentri) - die erste oral verfügbare Substanz dieser Klasse - hat entscheidenden Anteil daran, dass auch Patienten mit sehr langer Therapievorerfahrung heute bzgl. ihrer Lebenserwartung einen offenen Horizont haben. Der Einsatz in der frühen HIV Infektion wird derzeit untersucht.

Peptide and Protein Interaction with Membrane Systems: Applications to Antimicrobial Therapy and Protein Drug Delivery

G. (Breast International Group) and coordinated by the EORTC. The most attractive markers as far as taxane treatment is concerned are probably the microtubule-associated parameters (MTAP). These are a specific target for taxanes because these drugs interact with microtubules. Preclinical data suggest that mammary and pancreatic tumors with exquisite responsiveness to docetaxel in in vitro models have the highest expression of the Tau gene (MTAP-2 family) and of the a-tubulin protein [75]. Assessment of MTAP-2 expression by IHC in paraffin-embedded samples is feasible, making possible retrospective studies correlating MTAP-2 levels and docetaxel activity in both the metastatic and adjuvant settings.

Andres ‘‘Omics’’ in Cancer Diagnosis and Prognosis Gene Expression Profiling: Genomics and Transcriptomics Micro-array based technologies allow screening for the expression of many thousands of individual genes in a given tissue sample. RNA is isolated from the tissue of interest and in the presence of labelled nucleotides reversed transcribed into cDNA. This cDNA (referred to as target) can subsequently be hybridized to chips containing immobilized gene-specific oligonucleotide probes (20–80 nucleotides) (conventionally termed reporter platform) (Fig.
