APPLICATION OF EULER DECONVOLUTION TECHNIQUE IN DETERMINING DEPTHS TO MAGNETIC STRUCTURES IN MAGADI AREA, SOUTHERN KENYA RIFT
Magadi area is located in the southern part of the Kenyan rift, an active continental rift that is part of the East African Rift system. Thermal manifestations in the form of hot springs in the northern and southern shores ...
The Paleomagnetism of Granites from Kenya
(University of Nairobi,, 1980)
Evaluation of Geophagia as a Pathway for Internal Exposure to Ionizing Radiation
(University of Nairobi, 2015)
Geophagia, the deliberate ingestion of soil, is a complex eating habit found among animals and human beings around the world. Among other reasons soil ingestion is perceived as a source of essential mineral supplements, ...
Prognostic relevance of integrated genetic profiling in acute myeloid leukemia
BACKGROUND: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous disease with respect to presentation and clinical outcome. The prognostic value of recently identified somatic mutations has not been systematically evaluated ...
Acute myeloid leukemia with translocation t(8;16) presents with features which mimic acute promyelocytic leukemia and is associated with poor prognosis
Previous small series have suggested that acute myeloid leukemia with t(8;16) is a distinct morphologic and clinical entity associated with poor prognosis. We describe 18 patients with t(8;16) AML, including their clinical, ...
How do novel molecular genetic markers influence treatment decisions in acute myeloid leukemia?
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common acute leukemia diagnosed in adults, and the majority of patients with AML die from relapsed disease. Although many studies over the past 4 decades have identified disease ...
ASXL1 mutations promote myeloid transformation through loss of PRC2-mediated gene repression
Recurrent somatic ASXL1 mutations occur in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and acute myeloid leukemia, and are associated with adverse outcome. Despite the genetic and clinical data ...
Effect of serum lipoproteins on stereoselective halofantrine metabolism by rat hepatocytes
Experimental hyperlipidemia has shown to decrease cytochrome P450 3A4 and 2C11 expression and to increase liver concentrations and the plasma protein binding of halofantrine (HF) enantiomers. The present study examined the ...
Relapse-specific mutations in NT5C2 in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Relapsed childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) carries a poor prognosis, despite intensive retreatment, owing to intrinsic drug resistance. The biological pathways that mediate resistance are unknown. Here, we report ...
Effect of rat serum lipoproteins on mRNA levels and amiodarone metabolism by cultured primary rat hepatocytes
Hyperlipidemia can significantly increase amiodarone (AM) in vivo liver uptake and decrease its velocity of microsomal metabolism. Here, hepatocytes isolated from normolipidemic (NL) and hyperlipidemic rats were incubated ...
