Implementation of geriatric assessment in oncology settings: A systematic realist review (2020)
Journal Article
McKenzie, G. A., Bullock, A. F., Greenley, S. L., Lind, M. J., Johnson, M. J., & Pearson, M. (in press). Implementation of geriatric assessment in oncology settings: A systematic realist review. Journal of Geriatric Oncology, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jgo.2020.07.003

Older adults with cancer are more likely to have worse clinical outcomes than their younger counterparts, and shared decision-making can be difficult, due to both complexity from adverse ageing and under-representation in clinical trials. Geriatric a... Read More about Implementation of geriatric assessment in oncology settings: A systematic realist review.

Journal Article
McKenzie, G. A., Riley, A. S., McKenzie, G. A. G., Green, V., Schettino, G., England, R. J. A., & Greenman, J. (2019). The effect of radioiodine treatment on the diseased thyroid gland. International Journal of Radiation Biology, 95(12), 1718-1727. https://doi.org/10.1080/09553002.2019.1665206

Purpose: Radioiodine (I131) therapy is the treatment mainstay for several benign and malignant thyroid disorders, however I131 is known to cause DNA damage and liberation of thyroidal self-antigens inducing secondary immunoreactivity. The exact mecha... Read More about The effect of radioiodine treatment on the diseased thyroid gland.

Background Though the management of malignancies has improved vastly in recent years, many treatment options lack the desired efficacy and fail to adequately augment patient morbidity and mortality. It is increasingly clear that patient response to... Read More about A novel microfluidic device capable of maintaining functional thyroid carcinoma.
