Targeted cancer therapy based on blocking the expression of genes and small doses of oxaliplatin.

The major drawbacks of the prescribed chemotherapy, are still remain the significant side effects and drug - resistance. Even targeted chemotherapy by means of specific antibodies do not always help to solve these complications. Our purpose was to identify potential biological targets associated with the development of drug resistance and to develop a specific method of suppressing the viability of cancer cells exposed to low doses of standard chemotherapy.

Droplet Microfluidics for 3D Epithelial Cell Culture

The challenge facing 3D cell culture today is to adapt current models to a systems biology approach - in particular, to enable RNA interference-based screens to study the effects of the microenvironment on cellular function.

Rapid analysis of 3D tumour spheroids in soft agar and on ultra-low attachment plates using a laser scanning imaging system

The requirement for better in-vitro models that are compatible with high-throughput screening campaigns has led to the development of 3D cell cultures models, especially muliticellular spheroids, which retain many of the morphological and genetic traits of tumours.
Here we describe the formation of such spheroids by two methods: on ultra-low attachment plates and in semi-solid agarose. Both methods are compatible with 96- and 384-well microplate formats.

Does the increase of exosomal microRNAs reflect an activated immune system in melanoma?

Cutaneous malignant melanoma is a form of skin cancer that accounts for 65% of skin cancer-related deaths. The incidence increases continuously, and while early detection leads to nearly 100% survival rates, the mortality raises to greater than 80% for patients with advanced disease.

Stealth-Adapted Viruses and Viteria: Insights into Virus Construction, Replication and Potential Therapies

There is an increasing incidence of diseases with accompanying signs and symptoms of brain damage. These include neurological and psychiatric illnesses, childhood behavioral disorders, and such common conditions as chronic fatigue, Gulf War Syndrome, so-called “chronic Lyme disease”, and many cancers. Altogether, these diseases have an enormous social impact.

Novel Nucleosomics Serum Biomarkers for the Detection of Colorectal Cancer

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.

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

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.

FDG PET/CT Characteristics of Adrenal Benign and Malignant Lesions

We selected FDG PET/CT cases with strong key representative findings to help illustrate benign and malignant adrenal lesions. Tabular review of PET SUV values, Hounsfield units and lesion size in the different cases will be discussed.
