We have developed a strategy to predict response to treatment of cancer patients based on expression profiling of circulating tumour cells (CTCs). CTCs are collected from blood using AdnaGen immunomagnetic capture followed by expression profiling with TATAA Biocenter GrandPerformance assays via preamplification. Preliminary results from a pilot study on breast cancer (BC) patients demonstrates excellent sensitivity, technical reproducibility and identifies a set of genes that separates a group of non-responders. The approach shows great promise as liquid biopsy for the motoring of treatments and prediction of responses.
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
Liver Transplantation for Hepatocellular Carcinoma Outperform Other Populations in the New Hepatitis C EraPoster
Long term results of HCC liver transplants (LTx) in the recent era of direct-acting antivirals (DAA) against hepatitis C (HCV) are not available. We aimed to examine the access, treatments and cure rates with DAA’s utilized in HCC LTx with HCV. Secondarily, we aimed to determine the long term impact of the Liver Cancer Program and DAA therapies on survival of HCC LTx.READ MORE
