    Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most comm on thyroid malignancy, with an incidence of <100 cases per year in Ireland and 16,000 cases per year in the U.S. Incidence is increasing with a global estimate of half a million ...
  • Investigation of oral and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma in young adults 

    O'Regan, Esther (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2006)
    While oral and pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma is classically a disease of older male smokers, this tumour type can occur in young patients with minimal or no exposure to the traditional risk factors. The prognosis ...
  • Molecular signatures in papillary thyroid carcinoma 

    Cahill, Susanne (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2007)
    Papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC) are the most frequently occurring type of thyroid malignancy (85%-90%). PTC affects females more frequently than males, with a ratio of 3:1 and can be present in any age group, the mean ...
  • Molecular signatures of prostate cancer 

    Murphy, Amanda (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2008)
    Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in Irish men and the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths. In the United States, there are approximately 234,000 new cases diagnosed every year and 27,350 deaths. ...
  • Cancer stemness : unravelling the molecular mechanisms controlling stem cell differentiation and self-renewal 

    Heffron, Cynthia Constance Bridgette Beatrice (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2009)
    Understanding the molecular mechanisms behind cancer cell proliferation and regulation is the key to discovering potential future successful therapies for cancer. The World Health Organisation estimates that 7.6 million ...
  • Molecular gene and regulatory profiles in thyroid cancer 

    Denning, Karen (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2009)
    Thyroid carcinoma is the most common endocrine malignancy, with an incidence of approximately eighty cases per year in Ireland and thirty seven thousand cases per year in the United States. While thyroid cancer may be ...
  • Development of extraction and analysis of protocols for RNA in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) materials using TaqMan® real-time PCR 

    Li, Jinghuan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2009)
    Archival Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) tissue samples represent an invaluable source of human tissue for gene expression analysis. They are the most abundant and readily available materials and generally well ...
  • Molecular algorithms in ovarian serous neoplasia
