Here we discuss the differences between totipotent, pluripotent, and multipotent stem cells.READ MORE
Although histopathology is still the gold standard for diagnosing cancer, molecular analysis using MS has gained traction in recent years for detecting tumors, monitoring progression, and even predicting treatment response.READ MORE
It’s more than a century since Paget first proposed the ‘soil and seed’ hypothesis in cancer, providing evidence that the environment surrounding a tumor is as important as the tumor itself. Research in this area has gathered momentum and it’s now the focus of intense research efforts.READ MORE
Until now, tumors have been considered wholly responsible for an unpredictable and highly variable immune evading tumor microenvironment. Using genetically engineered animal models researchers now demonstrate that individual-specific receptor variants can shape the composition of the tumor neighborhood irrespective of the tumor types.READ MORE
The first paper ever published on microfluidic cell culture is 19 years old. Microfluidic cell culture has now outgrown its infancy and is about to survive its teenage years. It has matured considerably but still needs to transition from academia into clinics and industry. Will it come of age?READ MORE
Researchers have published the first detailed picture and description of the 3-dimensional molecular structure of telomerase – a discovery that could enable better targeted drug screening and could result in more successful telomerase-related clinical therapeutics.READ MORE
When it comes to cancer detection and diagnosis – the earlier the better. Cancer that remains undiagnosed until it is within ‘advanced’ stages is harder to treat successfully.
15-40 Connection’s mission is to empower patients and promote cancer conversation to ultimately improve cancer survival rates.
In Part 1 we outlined some patent-related ramifications of publishing your research and development prior to filing a patent application. This second part provides you with some practical hints and tips for drafting your paper, helping you to avoid potential issues that can arise.READ MORE
Tension can be felt between the desire to publish and the need to patent, especially in commercially savvy environments such as medical technology and pharmaceuticals. This article discusses the legal rationale behind why publishing early can hinder future patenting opportunities and provides practical tips for avoiding this situation.READ MORE
