Spheroid-on-chip microfluidic technology for the evaluation of the impact of continuous flow on metastatic potential in cancer models in vitro (2021)
Journal Article
Collins, T., Pyne, E., Christensen, M., Iles, A., Pamme, N., & Pires, I. M. (2021). Spheroid-on-chip microfluidic technology for the evaluation of the impact of continuous flow on metastatic potential in cancer models in vitro. Biomicrofluidics, 15(4), https://doi.org/10.1063/5.0061373

The majority of cancer deaths are linked to tumor spread, or metastasis, but 3D in vitro metastasis models relevant to the tumor microenvironment (including interstitial fluid flow) remain an area of unmet need. Microfluidics allows us to introduce c...

Secondary metabolites (essential oils) from sand-dune plants induce cytotoxic effects in cancer cells (2020)
Journal Article
Beeby, E., Magalhães, M., Poças, J., Collins, T., Lemos, M., Barros, L., …Pires, I. M. (2020). Secondary metabolites (essential oils) from sand-dune plants induce cytotoxic effects in cancer cells. Journal of Ethnopharmacology, 258, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jep.2020.112803

Ethnopharmacological relevance: Despite advances in modern therapeutic strategies, cancer remains the second leading cause of death worldwide. Therefore, there is a constant need to develop more efficient anticancer targeting strategies. The anticanc...
