Novel Nucleosomics Serum Biomarkers for the Detection of Colorectal Cancer S Holdenrieder, Y Dharuman, J Standop, M Herzog, N Trimpop, K Hettwer, K Simon, Steffen Uhlig and Jake Micallef
As colorectal cancers are often detected at late tumor stages when prognosis of the patients is poor, powerful blood-based biomarkers are needed for earlier detection. In recent years it has become clear that epigenetic changes to chromatin and its constituent nucleosomes are associated with carcinogenesis and elevated levels of nucleosomes are present in the blood of cancer patients.
Fingerprinting analytical strategy used for authentication of honey Oana Romina DINCAa,b, Roxana Elena IONETEa*, Raluca POPESCUa, Radu TAMAIANa, Diana COSTINELa, Gabriel Lucian RADUb
The goal of the current study is mainly to establish potential origin markers, and not to build a model for prediction. This research provides a database for comparison of honey samples from Romania with other honey samples from the world. Data on d13C, d18O and d2H of honey measured by IRMS together with the stable isotopes (deuterium by SNIF-NMR and carbon 13 - IRMS) in ethanol from fermented honeys were reported.
A novel DNA amplification method based on silicon microring resonator for rapid detection of genetic alteration in the point-of care (POC) field of cancers
Nucleic acid testing plays a critical role in molecular diagnosis[1-2]. Due to the low amounts of DNA obtained in clinical samples, the amplification of DNA is an essential step in most NAT methods .
Hypothesis of an Existence of a Reverse Pathway (Rp) which Passes Genetic Information from Polypeptide Antigens to Ig Genes in B-Lymphocytes Victor J. Alexander
Results of this research will bring new more effective treatment methods of many immune related diseases, including cancer.
Oral Health Management of a Patient with 47 XYY Syndrome Dr Altaf H Shah, Prof. Amjad H Wyne and Prof. Rita Khounganian
The 47XYY syndrome is an aneuploidy of sex chromosomes, where a human male receives an extra Y-chromosome making a total of 47 instead of the usual 46.
The Challenges of Relieving Cancer Pain: A Literature Review Rayna Patel
This study aims to explore the discrepancy between the increasing array of treatments for cancer pain, as well as the evidence that it can be managed effectively in the majority of cases, and its persisting prevalence.
Evaluation of 2012 Bowel Cancer Awareness and Early Diagnosis Campaign at a District General Hospital M Alkhusheh, H Asalieh, N Smith
Following the regional Be Clear on Cancer campaign, the Department of Health launched a national bowel cancer awareness campaign from 30 January 2012. The campaign ran until the end of March.
Identification and Characterization of Strain Specific Drug Target by Subtractive Genome Analysis of Methicillin Resistance Staphylococcus aureus Kiran Saeed and Reaz Uddin
This study aimed to identify and characterize strain specific essential protein targets, which will eventually help in the identification of druggable proteins in two strains of MRSA by using different Bioinformatic tools and databases. We adopting a subtractive genome approach within the domain of Computational Biology.
