PI3K inhibition as a novel therapeutic strategy for neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy resistant oesophageal adenocarcinoma (2021)
Journal Article
Edge, S. D., Renard, I., Pyne, E., Li, C., Moody, H., Roy, R., …Pires, I. M. (in press). PI3K inhibition as a novel therapeutic strategy for neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy resistant oesophageal adenocarcinoma. British Journal of Radiology, https://doi.org/10.1259/bjr.20201191

Objectives Neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy (neo-CRT) prior to surgery is the standard of care for oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC) patients. Unfortunately, most patients fail to respond to treatment. MiR-187 was previously shown to be downregulated in... Read More about PI3K inhibition as a novel therapeutic strategy for neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy resistant oesophageal adenocarcinoma.

Development of an anatomically correct mouse phantom for dosimetry measurement in small animal radiotherapy research (2019)
Journal Article
Soultanidis, G., Subiel, A., Renard, I., Reinhart, A. M., Green, V. L., Oelfke, U., …Cawthorne, C. J. (2019). Development of an anatomically correct mouse phantom for dosimetry measurement in small animal radiotherapy research. Physics in Medicine and Biology, 64(12), https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6560/ab215b

Significant improvements in radiotherapy are likely to come from biological rather than technical optimization, for example increasing tumour radiosensitivity via combination with targeted therapies. Such paradigms must first be evaluated in preclini... Read More about Development of an anatomically correct mouse phantom for dosimetry measurement in small animal radiotherapy research.
