Cancer: Understanding the immunosuppressive role of fibroblast and macrophages in Breast cancer

Oncolytic viruses (OVs) preferentially infect and kill cancer cells, and their clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against a number of different cancers. The most clinically advanced OV is a genetically engineered herpes simplex virus (T-VEC) which expresses GMCSF to aid the development of anti-tumour immune responses; T-VEC is approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma.

Estimating the global cancer burden due to low levels of physical activity

Rationale. Around 40% of all cancers are thought to be avoidable by modification of lifestyle factors. Obesity has been found to be a risk factor for several cancers and was estimated to have caused around 3.6% of all new cancers which occurred in 2012. Read more

The role of vitamin D3 in treating skin cancer and preventing drug resistance

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
During the last decade numerous studies have alluded to vitamin D. 3. playing a role in the prevention of cancer. Recent clinical trials looking at the potential role of vitamin D. Read more

Cancer: Characterization of EGFR signaling activated by the endothelium in the process of breast cancer metastasis to the brain

The Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is important in normal physiology regulating epithelial development and homeostasis. In cancer, deregulation resulting from mutation, amplification or transcriptional upregulation promotes tumorigenesis. Read more

Cancer: Repurposing drugs as new treatments for breast cancer

Breast cancer (BC) is the most common cancer, with over 1 million new cases diagnosed worldwide each year. For some types of BC, hormonal treatments have been very effective but one particular BC subtype, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), is highly aggressive and lacks a targeted therapy. Read more

Cancer: Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more
