We consider the three conjectures stated in a 2003 paper of Wu, concerning the asymptotics of particular sums of products of binomials, powers and logarithms. These sums relate to the form of the regularised integrals used in loop regularisation. We show all three are true, extend them to more general powers and produce their full asymptotic series. We also extend a classical result to produce an exact formula for the sum in the last.
