  • Differential expression of differentation, key stemness and pathways genes and microRNAs and the role of Tgf-β in embryonal carinoma stem cells 

    Elbaruni, Salah Amru K. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2010)
    Cancer stem cells (CSCs) identified in multiple malignancies has fuelled the belief that they drive primary tumourigenesis. Their persistence post-intervention contributes to metastasis, recurrence, self-renewal, thus ...
  • ECHO: the epidemiology of HPV infection in oropharyngeal, oral cavity, and laryngeal cancer in Ireland 

    SHARKEY OCHOA, IMOGEN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology, 2019)
    Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection has been identified as a significant etiological agent in the development of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). There is mounting evidence from North America and Europe to ...
  • Genome wide investigation of papillary thyroid carcinoma 

    Finn, Stephen (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2005)
    In recent years, there has been a technological explosion in the fields of molecular pathology and molecular oncology. The genome, transcriptome and increasingly the proteome of diverse tumours can now be analysed in minute ...
  • HPV mRNA and p16[ink4a] / Ki-67 detection for improved diagnosis and management of cervical neoplasia in smokers 

    White, Christine (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2012)
    Persistent infection with high risk human papillomavirus (HR HPV) is the main etiological agent in the development of cervical cancer. The use of HPV DNA testing in cervical screening programs is becoming increasingly ...
  • HPV Primary Screening Pilot Study: molecular testing of potential triage strategies for HPV-positive women. 

    REYNOLDS, STEPHEN HUGH (Trinity College Dublin. School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology, 2020)
    Cytological based screening programmes are being phased out in favour of HPV-based screening both in Ireland and internationally. Infection with HPV is the primary aetiological agent in the development of cervical cancer. ...
  • Human papillomavirus prevalence in the Irish cervical screening population and a specific group of HIV positive women 

    Mc Inerney, Jamie Kevin (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2011)
    Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the major aetiological agent in the development of cervical pre-cancer and cancer with high-risk HPV (HR-HPV) types 16 and 18 detected in greater than 70% of squamous cell carcinomas of the ...
  • Identification of novel biomarkers in recurrent / chemoresistant ovarian cancer 

    Laios, Alexandros (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2009)
