Aromatase inhibitors (AI) induce painful musculoskeletal symptoms (AIMSS), which are dependent upon the pain transducing receptor TRPA1. However, as the AI concentrations required to engage TRPA1 in mice are higher than those found in the plasma of p...

ISSN 1745-6215

Background: Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common adult leukaemia. Combination immunochemotherapy such as fludarabine, cyclophosphamide and rituximab is the standard first line therapy in fit patients, but there is limited evidence r...

The quiet embryo hypothesis postulates that early embryo viability is associated with a relatively low metabolism (Leese. 2002. BioEssays 24: 845-849). This proposal is re-visited here using retrospective and prospective data on the metabolic activit...
