Individual patient oesophageal cancer 3D models for tailored treatment (2016)
Journal Article
Saunders, J. H., Onion, D., Collier, P., Dorrington, M. S., Argent, R. H., Clarke, P. A., …Grabowska, A. M. (2016). Individual patient oesophageal cancer 3D models for tailored treatment. Oncotarget, doi:10.18632/oncotarget.12500. ISSN 1949-2553

Background: A model to predict chemotherapy response would provide a marked clinical benefit, enabling tailored treatment of oesophageal cancer, where less than half of patients respond to the routinely administered chemotherapy. Methods: Cancer cel... Read More

Mutational signatures in esophageal adenocarcinoma define etiologically distinct subgroups with therapeutic relevance (2016)
Journal Article
Secrier, M., Li, X., de Silva, N., Eldridge, M. D., Contino, G., Bornschein, J., …Grimmond, S. M. (2016). Mutational signatures in esophageal adenocarcinoma define etiologically distinct subgroups with therapeutic relevance. Nature Genetics, 48(10), doi:10.1038/ng.3659. ISSN 1061-4036

Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) has a poor outcome, and targeted therapy trials have thus far been disappointing owing to a lack of robust stratification methods. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) analysis of 129 cases demonstrated that this is a heterog... Read More

The influence of nanotexturing of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) films upon human ovarian cancer cell attachment (2016)
Journal Article
Yaşayan, G., Xue, X., Collier, P., Clarke, P., Alexander, M. R., & Marlow, M. (2016). The influence of nanotexturing of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) films upon human ovarian cancer cell attachment. Nanotechnology, 27(25), doi:10.1088/0957-4484/27/25/255102. ISSN 0957-4484

In this study, we have produced nanotextured poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) films by using polystyrene (PS) particles as a template to make a polydimethylsiloxane mould against which PLGA is solvent cast. Biocompatible, biodegradable and nanote... Read More
