Patients with TNF Receptor Associated Periodic Syndrome (TRAPS) are hypersensitive to Toll‐like receptor 9 stimulation (2019)
Journal Article

Tumour necrosis factor receptor‐associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS) is an hereditary autoinflammatory disorder characterised by recurrent episodes of fever and inflammation. It is associated with autosomal dominant mutations in TNFRSF1A, which encod...

A protein microarray assay for serological determination of antigen-specific antibody responses following Clostridium difficile infection (2018)
Journal Article

We provide a detailed overview of a novel high-throughput protein microarray assay for the determination of anti-C. difficile antibody levels in human sera and in separate preparations of polyclonal IVIg. The protocol describes the methodological ste...

Protective antibodies against Clostridium difficile are present in intravenous immunoglobulin and are retained in humans following its administration (2017)
Journal Article

The prevalence of serum antibodies against Clostridium difficile (CD) toxins A and B in healthy populations have prompted interest in evaluating the therapeutic activity of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) in individuals experiencing severe or recur... Read More about Protective antibodies against Clostridium difficile are present in intravenous immunoglobulin and are retained in humans following its administration.

Human blood autoantibodies in the detection of colorectal cancer (2016)
Journal Article
Negm, O. H., Hamed, M. R., Schoen, R. E., Whelan, R. L., Steele, R. J., Scholefield, J., …Sewell, H. F. (2016). Human blood autoantibodies in the detection of colorectal cancer. PLoS ONE, 11(7), 1-14. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0156971

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common malignancy in the western world. Early detection and diagnosis of all cancer types is vital to improved prognosis by enabling early treatment when tumours should be both resectable and curable. Sera f...

The prognostic significance of STAT3 in invasive breast cancer: analysis of protein and mRNA expressions in large cohorts (2016)
Journal Article

Signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) transcription factors family are involved in diverse cellular biological functions. Reports regarding the prognostic impact of STAT3 expression in breast cancer (BC) are variable whether being a...

Clinical utility of reverse phase protein array for molecular classification of breast cancer. Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, 155(1), 25-35. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10549-015-3654-2

Reverse Phase Protein Array (RPPA) represents a sensitive and high-throughput technique allowing simultaneous quantitation of protein expression levels in biological samples. This study aimed to confirm the ability of RPPA to classify archival formal... Read More about Clinical utility of reverse phase protein array for molecular classification of breast cancer.

The mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) in breast cancer: the impact of oestrogen receptor and HER2 pathways (2015)
Journal Article

The mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) is a downstream of the PI3K/Akt pathway which affects cancer development. mTORC1 has many downstream signalling effectors that can enhance different cellular responses. This study aims to investiga... Read More about The mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) in breast cancer: the impact of oestrogen receptor and HER2 pathways.

Epithelial mesenchymal transition in early invasive breast cancer: an immunohistochemical and reverse phase protein array study (2014)
Journal Article

Epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT), as defined by loss of epithelial characteristics and gain of a mesenchymal phenotype, has been reported in vivo although the occurrence of events remains unclear. This study aims at exploration of EMT portrait... Read More about Epithelial mesenchymal transition in early invasive breast cancer: an immunohistochemical and reverse phase protein array study.
