|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.
|Integrating compound storage into automated laboratory workflows |
James Craven, Simon Tullett
This poster discusses the benefits of comPOUND for automated sample storage and delivery. TTP Labtech’s pneumatic transport technology, lab2lab, integrates these stores with other instrumentation into managed, fully automated workflows, allowing the scientist to focus on research and data analysis.
|A mix-and-read cell-based assay for antibody screening against Epithelial Growth Factor Receptor |
Wayne P Bowen, David Onley, Paul Wylie, Diana Caracino and Tristan Cope
Here we present a sensitive robust, mix-and-read method for the screening of antibodies against cell surface proteins. With its simple operation, no-wash format, and high sensitivity, this new method is well-suited for high throughput antibody screening.
|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|
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.
