- Genomic activation of the EGFR and HER2-neu genes in a significant proportion of invasive epithelial ovarian cancersJoanna Vermeij
Laboratory for Molecular Oncology, Universitair Ziekenhuis, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, 1090 Brussels, Belgium
BMC Cancer 8:3. 2008..The status of the EGFR and HER2-neu genes has not been fully defined in ovarian cancer. An integrated analysis of both genes could help define the proportion of patients that would potentially benefit from targeted therapies...

- Screening for insulitis in adult autoantibody-positive organ donorsPeter In't Veld
Diabetes Research Center, Brussels Free University and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Center for Beta Cell Therapy in Diabetes, Brussels, Belgium
Diabetes 56:2400-4. 2007..It was only detected in <10% of the islets, some of which presented signs of beta-cell proliferation. No decrease in beta-cell mass was detected in cases with insulitis or in the group of antibody+ subjects...
- Insulitis in human type 1 diabetes: The quest for an elusive lesionPeter In't Veld
Department of Pathology, Diabetes Research Center, Free University of Brussels, Belgium
Islets 3:131-8. 2011..It discusses recent new insights into the regenerative capacity of the β-cell mass in the pre-clinical stages of the disease and relates these findings to the inflammatory processes within the islet tissue...
