Development of Novel Polymeric Micellar DACHPt for Enhanced Platinum Based Chemotherapy in Colorectal CancerDownload
One of the major limitations of chemotherapy in cancer treatment is the side effects of anti-cancer drugs. This happens due to non-selective distribution of most standard chemotherapies, and their action on cancer and all normal dividing cells. The objective of this project is to develop a novel...
Energy expenditure forms the basis of all dietary recommendations. In patients with cancer, resting energy expenditure (REE) can be impacted by tumor burden, high systemic inflammation, and/or altered body composition. Total energy expenditure (TEE) and physical activity levels (PAL) have been...
Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the 6th most prevalent cancer worldwide with rates of human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) dramatically increasing. The overexpression of enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2), a histone methyltransferase...
Physical Therapy Interventions for Children and Adolescents with Cancer: Collating the Evidence from Research and Clinical PracticeDownload
Purpose: Children and adolescents with cancer who undergo cancer treatment are at high risk of developing serious late and long-term physical effects, many of which may be amenable to physical therapy (PT). Little is known about the benefits of PT or the services currently provided to address...
Adiposity and fat loss in cancer: Exploring the prognostic significance and underlying mechanisms of adipose alterations in cancerDownload
During cancer progression, many patients will experience some degree of wasting of both muscle and adipose tissue. However, little is-known about adipose tissue alterations after a cancer diagnosis. Therefore, this research was conducted to first understand the prognostic significance of adipose...
Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (qMRI) is occupying an increasingly prominent role in the study of the brain, by virtue of its sensitivity to physiological and anatomical changes. However, because qMRI techniques tend to suffer from long scan durations and/or post-processing times, as...
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...
Survival Benefit of Chemotherapy in Oropharyngeal Cancer Patients Treated with Surgery and Post-Operative RadiationDownload
Oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) is the third most common cancer of the head and neck. The incidence of all subtypes of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma has decreased over the past 30 years in Canada and most of the world except for OPSCC. The increasing incidence of OPSCC over...
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....
Microtubules and Energy Metabolism: Targets for Standard, Combination, and Novel Therapeutic Interventions and Monitoring of CancerDownload
The challenge of understanding and treating cancer has proven to be exceedingly complex. At this juncture, understanding cancer from the perspective of a breakdown of a complex cooperative system using a biophysical analysis may aid in improved treatments and prevention of this disease. In any...
