The Application of Gene Expression Profiling in Predictions of Occult Lymph Node Metastasis in Colorectal Cancer Patients (2018)
Journal Article
Peyravian, N., Larki, P., Gharib, E., Nazemalhosseini-Mojarad, E., Anaraki, F., Young, C., …Zali, M. (2018). The Application of Gene Expression Profiling in Predictions of Occult Lymph Node Metastasis in Colorectal Cancer Patients. Biomedicines, 6(1), 27. https://doi.org/10.3390/biomedicines6010027

A key factor in determining the likely outcome for a patient with colorectal cancer is whether or not the tumour has metastasised to the lymph nodes-information which is also important in assessing any possibilities of lymph node resection so as to i... Read More

GJA4/Connexin 37 Mutations Correlate with Secondary Lymphedema Following Surgery in Breast Cancer Patients (2018)
Journal Article
Hadizadeh, M., Mohaddes Ardebili, S., Salehi, M., Young, C., Mokarian, F., McClellan, J., …Bonab, M. (2018). GJA4/Connexin 37 Mutations Correlate with Secondary Lymphedema Following Surgery in Breast Cancer Patients. Biomedicines, 6(1), 23. https://doi.org/10.3390/biomedicines6010023

Lymphedema is a condition resulting from mutations in various genes essential for lymphatic development and function, which leads to obstruction of the lymphatic system. Secondary lymphedema is a progressive and incurable condition, most often manife... Read More

© 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. The Tudor warship the Mary Rose sank in the Solent waters between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the 19th of July 1545, whilst engaging a French invasion fleet. The ship was rediscovered in 1971 and between 1979 and... Read More

Distribution of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) and their HLA-C ligands in two Iranian populations (2009)
Journal Article
Hiby, S. E., Ashrafian-Bonab, M., Farrell, L., Single, R. M., Balloux, F., Carrington, M., & Moffett, A. (2010). Distribution of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) and their HLA-C ligands in two Iranian populations. Immunogenetics, 62(2), 65-73. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00251-009-0408-5

Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) gene frequencies vary between populations and contribute to functional variation in immune responses to viruses,autoimmunity and reproductive success. This study describes the frequency distribution of... Read More
