Be Clear on Cancer is a Department of Health campaign which aims to improve early diagnosis of cancer by raising the public’s awareness of the symptoms of cancer and encouraging people to see their doctor earlier.
The Be Clear on Cancer campaign is the first national Government campaign to raise
awareness of the early signs and symptoms of bowel cancer.
Advertisements featured on national TV, radio and press; there were also online activity and advertising on local buses and public events across the country. The campaign encouraged people who have blood in their poo or loose poo for more than 3 weeks to see their doctor.
Mass Spectrometry: From Imaging to Metabolic NetworksPoster
We show that network analysis of co-localized ions from mass spectrometry imaging data provides a detailed chemo-spatial insight into the metabolic heterogeneity of tumor. Furthermore, module preservation analysis between colorectal cancer patients with and without metastatic recurrence suggests hypotheses on the nature of the different local metabolic pathways.READ MORE
T-helper cell phenotype expression in cutaneous lesions of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphomaPoster
Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a common type of peripheral T-cell lymphoma. AITL can be missed until lymphadenopathy develops in patients initially presenting with skin lesions, as skin biopsy may lack conclusive findings. Our case highlights the extranodal presentation of AITL with cutaneous lesions displaying the TFH phenotype.READ MORE
Novel Role of the Innate Immune DNA Sensor IFI16 (Interferon Gamma Inducible Protein 16) as a Major Epigenetic Modulator During KSHV Infection and Lytic ReactivationPoster
Studies have shown that IFI16 acts as an antiviral restriction factor against a number of DNA viruses, by inhibiting viral replication or transcription through epigenetic modifications. However, till date, no specific epigenetic function of IFI16 has been identified. Here, we have discovered that IFI16 recruits two histone methyltransferases on the KSHV episome leading to altered Histone H3K9 methylation, thus regulating its lifecycle.READ MORE
