Alterations in Retinoic Acid Receptors in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Their Clinical Implications  [PDF]
Saé Mu?iz-Hernández, Norma Hernández-Pedro, Omar E. Macedo-Pérez, Oscar Arrieta
Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2015.68072
Abstract: The nuclear retinoic acid receptor may play a critical role in the process of lung carcinogenesis. Alteration or loss of nuclear retinoic acid receptors (RARs) has been associated with progression in premalignant and malignant tissues and it is associated with malignant transformation in human cells. Vitamin A derivates, such as retinoic acid, have emerged as adjuvant to therapy in several types of cancer with favorable effects. Retinoic acid regulates the expression of target genes through the binding and activation of RARs, inhibiting growth proliferation. Diverse studies have evaluated different retinoids alone or in combination with chemotherapy in lung cancer, from which results have been controversial with benefits observed only in the subpopulation with high levels of triglycerides. Additionally, several large randomized trials using retinoids to prevent tobacco-related cancer have failed; due to the latter the use of retinoids in clinical trials remains controversial. However they could reduce the risk of cancer development in non-smokers. There is evidence that retinoids have different effects on lung cancer; still the identification of biomarkers could determinate their benefits as preventive or therapy agents. This review describes the RAR alterations during the development of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and sets out the importance of several cancer treatments with retinoid compounds.

Sensors , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/s110403852
Abstract: The IEEE 802.15.4 Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol is an enabling standard for wireless sensor networks. In order to support applications requiring dedicated bandwidth or bounded delay, it provides a reservation-based scheme named Guaranteed Time Slot (GTS). However, the GTS scheme presents some drawbacks, such as inefficient bandwidth utilization and support to a maximum of only seven devices. This paper presents eLPRT (enhanced Low Power Real Time), a new reservation-based MAC protocol that introduces several performance enhancing features in comparison to the GTS scheme. This MAC protocol builds on top of LPRT (Low Power Real Time) and includes various mechanisms designed to increase data transmission reliability against channel errors, improve bandwidth utilization and increase the number of supported devices. A motion capture system based on inertial and magnetic sensors has been used to validate the protocol. The effectiveness of the performance enhancements introduced by each of the new features is demonstrated through the provision of both simulation and experimental results.
