Targeting HDAC5 to Improve Cancer Chemotherapy

Damir Simic
Chemotherapy resistance and dose-limiting adverse effects remain major challenges for tumor management. It has been shown that cytoplasmic translocation of HDAC5 plays a critical role in cell adaptation to metabolic and pathological stress. This is particularly the case in cancer cells where metabolic stress triggers AMPK activation, which leads to phosphorylation and subsequent nuclear export of HDAC5. I hypothesized that chemotherapeutic stress triggers similar adaptive mechanisms as the metabolic stress, thus eliciting innate chemoresistance through...

Impact of the STOP-Bang Questionnaire on the Assessment of Sleep Apnea in Hospitalized Adults with Acute Decompensated Heart Failure (ADHF)

Rebeca Kane
Background: Over half the patients diagnosed heart failure have co-existing sleep apnea. New guidelines in the treatment of heart failure recommend early recognition and assessment of sleep apnea. Evidence shows that adequate treatment of sleep apnea decreases morbidity and mortality in high-risk patients with heart failure. Using a valid and reliable assessment tool like the STOP-Bang© Sleep Apnea Questionnaire can help identify patients in need of further assessment. Current practice at the bedside does not...
