DNA is a detailed layout of instructions for cellular function. The integrity of human DNA is constantly challenged by a barrage of exogenous and endogenous sources. A regime of genome stability maintenance has evolved to repair the many different types of DNA damage. A form of communication...
Renal cell carcinoma comprises approximately 2-3% of all malignancies, with the majority, approximately 70%, being clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). ccRCC features many cancer hallmarks such as suppressed mitochondrial glucose oxidation, apoptosis-resistance, angiogenesis, immune evasion,...
Reovirus is a naturally benign virus that preferentially replicates in transformed cells and is currently undergoing clinical trials as a promising oncolytic therapy. In normal mouse fibroblasts, transformation by constitutively activated Ras oncogene is sufficient to promote reovirus infection....
Application of ROC curve analysis to metabolomics data sets for the detection of cancer in a mouse modelDownload
The goal of this study was to show that quantifiable metabolic changes may be used to screen for cancer. NIH III nude mice (n=22) were injected with human GBM cells, with daily urine samples collected pre and post-injection. 14 mice were injected with saline to serve as controls. The...
Molecular imaging of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and autotaxin (ATX) in cancer using positron emission tomography (PET)Download
Positron emission tomography (PET) relies on the use of β+-emitting radionuclide-bearing molecules congregating and decaying at a specific site of interest. Use of these molecules, called radiotracers, which target common tumor characteristics has become a pillar in the diagnosis of cancer and...
Comparison of tooth loss between intensity modulated and non-intensity modulated radiotherapy in head and neck cancer patientsDownload
Advanced radiotherapy (RT) systems (intensity modulated radiotherapy, IMRT) is widely used to treat head and neck cancer. A combination of radiation and chemotherapy potentially increases toxicity as well as dental complications. Tooth loss was retrospectively assessed using oral cavity,...
Preliminary validation of a computer-based approach to find new lead molecules targeting the oncogenic Forkhead box M1 transcription factorDownload
The upregulation of the forkhead box M1 (FOXM1) transcription factor is directly correlated with cancer initiation, invasion, and drug resistance. Because the overexpression of FOXM1 is considered an important factor in carcinogenesis, this protein could be a relevant drug target in cancer...
Despite the research to date, the characteristics and impact of cognitive dysfunction (CD) in cancer patients following chemotherapy is still not well understood. It is estimated approximately 20% of patients will manifest measurable cognitive deficits on neuropsychological testing...
Background: A standard treatment option for locally advanced rectal cancer includes 5-6 weeks of neoadjuvant chemoradiation (NACRT) followed by surgery about 6-8 weeks later. NACRT improves outcomes for rectal cancer patients but also causes acute toxicities which may impede quality of life...
The aim of this work is to develop an effective non-viral carrier and to identify suitable gene targets that would induce apoptosis specifically in lymphoma cells upon down-regulation with short interfering RNA (siRNA). Lymphoma is common in children and young adults, and although survival rate...
