...into their role in cancer," said S Emily Wang, Ph D , associate professor in the Department of Cancer Biology and senior author of the study. "When we found out that cancer cells can make and secrete microRNAs, we wanted to investigate their role in interactions between cancer cells and normal tissue."
...alternative to clinical testing," said Lucia Beviglia, Ph D , director of pharmacology research in SRI Biosciences Center for Cancer and Metabolism. "We offer researchers models that are highly representative of human cancer. PDCellX allows researchers to understand the mechanisms of drug action and resistance at the cellular level, which is critical before taking a candidate drug to clinical trials."
"Furthermore, the uptake pattern could identify patients with poorer outcome in the group with a high MTV, suggesting that it might be used to select therapeutic strategy and that it might add information for predicting a poor prognosis when clinically staging patients with HNSCC" they wrote
Results of the so-called EORTC 22881-10882 trial show that "no extra complications or second malignancies are caused by the higher radiation dose. On the other hand, we can reduce the need for mastectomies by 35%" lead investigator Harry Bartelink, MD, from The Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam, told Medscape Medical News
