    • Mesenchymal stem cell-mediated delivery of the sodium iodide symporter supports radionuclide imaging and treatment of breast cancer 

      Dwyer, Róisín M.; Ryan, James; Havelin, Ronan J.; Morris, John C.; Miller, Brian W.; Liu, Zhonglin; Flavin, Richard; O'Flatharta, Cathal; Foley, Mark J.; Barrett, Harrison H; Murphy, J. Mary; Barry, Frank P; O'Brien, Timothy; Kerin, Michael J. (AlphaMed Press, 2011-05-23)
      Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) migrate specifically to tumors in vivo, and coupled with their capacity to bypass immune surveillance, are attractive vehicles for tumor-targeted delivery of therapeutic agents. This study ...
    • miR-379 Regulates Cyclin B1 Expression and Is Decreased in Breast Cancer 

      Khan, Sonja; Brougham, Cathy L.; Ryan, James; Sahrudin, Arisha; O'Neill, Gregory; Wall, Deirdre; Curran, Catherine; Newell, John; Kerin, Michael J.; Dwyer, Róisín M. (2013)
      MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNA molecules that control gene expression post-transcriptionally, and are known to be altered in many diseases including breast cancer. The aim of this study was to determine the relevance ...
    • The Sodium Iodide Symporter (NIS) and Potential Regulators in Normal, Benign and Malignant Human Breast Tissue 

      Ryan, James; Curran, Catherine E.; Hennessy, Emer; Newell, John; Kerin, Michael J.; Dwyer, Róisín M. (2011-01)
      Introduction: The presence, relevance and regulation of the Sodium Iodide Symporter (NIS) in human mammary tissue remains poorly understood. This study aimed to quantify relative expression of NIS and putative regulators ...
