Effects of bone marrow stromal cells on sensitivity of leukaemic cells to chemotherapy (2013)
Journal Article
Page, K., Anderson, E., Smith, A., Reid, C., Salisbury, V., Donaldson, C., & May, J. E. (2014). Effects of bone marrow stromal cells on sensitivity of leukaemic cells to chemotherapy. Mutagenesis, 29(1), 92. https://doi.org/10.1093/mutage/get060

Cytosine arabinoside (ara-C) is a key chemotherapy drug used to treat acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), however, ap- proximately 30% of patients do not respond to this therapy. 92 An evaluative assay to determine resistance/sensitivity to ara- C prior...

Chemotherapy-induced cytotoxicity and genotoxicity to the bone marrow microenvironment (2013)
Journal Article
May, J. E., Morse, H. R., Page, K., Soh, M., Wexler, S., Cox, C., …Donaldson, C. (2014). Chemotherapy-induced cytotoxicity and genotoxicity to the bone marrow microenvironment. Mutagenesis, 29(1), 79. https://doi.org/10.1093/mutage/get060

The bone marrow (BM) microenvironment is largely com- prised of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) and is vital in supporting haematopoiesis. Limited studies have indicated that the BM microenvironment is damaged by chemotherapy; however the extent and...

Use of whole blood for analysis of disease-associated biomarkers (2013)
Journal Article
McLeod, J., Pemberton, R. M., May, J. E., Pemberton, R., Hart, J. P., McLeod, J. D., …Doran, O. (2013). Use of whole blood for analysis of disease-associated biomarkers. Analytical Biochemistry, 437(1), 59-61. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ab.2013.02.024

Analyses for diagnosis and monitoring of pathological conditions often rely on blood samples, partly due to relative ease of collection. However, many interfering substances largely preclude the use of whole blood itself, necessitating separation of... Read More about Use of whole blood for analysis of disease-associated biomarkers.

Multiple myeloma: The bone marrow microenvironment and its relation to treatment (2013)
Journal Article
Andrews, S. W., Kabrah, S., May, J. E., Donaldson, C., & Morse, H. R. (2013). Multiple myeloma: The bone marrow microenvironment and its relation to treatment. British Journal of Biomedical Science, 70(3), 110-120. https://doi.org/10.1080/09674845.2013.11669945

Multiple myeloma is the most common haematological malignancy yet currently it remains incurable. For decades the mainstay in therapy has been non-targeted approaches including genotoxic agents and immunosuppressants. With myeloma predominantly affec...
