Concurrent Delivery of Interstitial Thermobrachytherapy in Cancer Treatment
Project ID: D2017-09Background Brachytherapy is a minimally invasive treatment that allows a dose of radiation to be delivered to a defined treatment area using a radioactive source or seed. Addition of hyperthermia to brachytherapy enhances treatment in certain types of cancer, especially if it is delivered in conjunction with the radiation thera...
Monoclonal IgM Antibody from Entirely Carbohydrate Construct Binds and Kills Human Tumor Cells
Project ID: D2015-13Background Truncated patterns of oligosaccharides on the surfaces of cancer cells can serve as biomarkers that help to distinguish tumor cells from healthy ones. These are known as tumor-associated carbohydrate antigens (TACAs). A significant portion of cancer antigens have been identified as TACAs. Thus TACAs can be exploited f...
