Factors influencing diagnosis and outcome in HER2 receptor positive breast cancer
(NUI Galway, 2019-02-22)
Introduction About 30% of breast cancers are HER2 receptor positive, these breast cancers traditionally had a poor prognosis but the introduction of targeted anti-HER2 therapy (Trastuzumab) has resulted in a vast improvement ...
Mechanistic insights into novel cellular therapy strategies for the treatment of corneal allograft rejection
(NUI Galway, 2019-02-14)
It has previously been demonstrated by our lab that tolerogenic dendritic cells (tDCs) prolong corneal allograft survival. This study revealed that tDCs had significantly higher levels of sialic acid on the cell surface ...
Therapeutic targets for duchenne muscular dystrophy
(NUI Galway, 2019-07-05)
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive X-linked fatal muscle degenerative disorder caused by the absence of the sarcolemmal associated dystrophin-glycoprotein complex (DGC) that connects the intracellular ...
Evaluation of human induced pluripotent stem cell-based cellular models for pathological investigation of genetic skeletal diseases
(NUI Galway, 2019-02-15)
The uniqueness of stem cells endows them with the capacity to be used as a valuable tool in the field of pathology, particularly the one from patients. Patient-specific cellular model can be generated by deriving donor-specific ...
Treatment resistant hypertension in General Practice: prevalence, pseudo-resistance, and a feasibility study of prognosis
(NUI Galway, 2019-05-03)
Background. Both the American Heart Association (AHA) in 2008 and the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in 2011 suggest the need for further research into the management of treatment resistant ...
Regulation of fear, anxiety and cognition in the presence or absence of pain by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors
(NUI Galway, 2019-06-07)
Fear/anxiety and pain modulate one another reciprocally, but the neurobiological mechanisms that underlie this interaction are not completely understood. Fear-conditioned analgesia (FCA) is pain suppression upon exposure ...
