  • Platinum and taxane chemoresistance mechanisms in ovarian cancer cells 

    Busschots, Steven (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2015)
    Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from a gynaecological malignancy, typically presenting at late stage due to difficult diagnosis and lack of suitable screening tools. The standard treatment of combination ...
  • 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 ...
  • Regulation of cancer stem cell differentiation by genes and microRNAs 

    Vencken, Sebastian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2012)
    Since the discovery of a stem cell phenotype in cancer, specific tumour cells with this phenotype, often called cancer stem cells (CSCs), are now widely accepted as the progenitors of oncogenesis, proliferation, treatment ...
  • Molecular targeting of HPV oncogenes and oncogenic protein 

    Spillane, Cathy (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2010)
    Worldwide cervical cancer is the second most common cause of cancer related death in women. Over the last three decades high-risk HPV has been conclusively established as the major etiological factor in cervical cancer and ...
  • Non-coding RNA expression in cancer stem cell progenies derived from tumours +/-BRAF V600E mutation 

    Sommerville, Gary (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Histopathology & Morbid Anatomy, 2013)
    Cancer has placed a huge burden on the global health system and rising rates in particular cancer types such as lung cancer and melanoma due to smoking and increased UV ray exposure respectively has highlighted the need ...
