Inhibitors of human ezh2, and methods of use thereof


The invention relates to inhibition of wild-type and certain mutant forms of human histone methyltransferase ezh2, the catalytic subunit of the prc2 complex which catalyzes the mono- through tri-methylation of lysine 27 on histone h3 (h3-k27). In one embodiment the inhibition is selective for the mutant form of the ezh2, such that trimethylation of h3-k27, which is associated with certain cancers, is inhibited.

Bone loss preventing and bone regeneration or bone formation promoting pharmaceutical composition comprising muramyl dipeptide


The present invention relates to a bone regeneration or bone formation promoting pharmaceutical composition comprising muramyl dipeptide, an analogue thereof, a derivative thereof or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof. In contrast to existing passive therapeutic agents which center on bone absorption suppression based on mechanisms for reducing osteoclast functionality, the composition comprising muramyl dipeptide of the present invention promotes the differentiation of osteoblasts, which are bone forming cells, and can advantageously be used in various diseases where bone formation is required as an active therapeutic agent that does not affect osteoclast..

Blood borne mirna signature for the accurate diagnosis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma


The differential expression of select mirna in plasma and bile among patients with pdac, chronic pancreatitis (cp), and controls were measured. Patients (n=215) with treatment-naïve pdac (n=77), cp with bile or pancreatic duct pathology (n=67), and controls (n=71) that had been prospectively enrolled in a pancreatobiliary disease biorepository at the time of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ercp) or endoscopic ultrasound (eus) were identified.
