PTEN protein expression in malignant pleural mesothelioma (2012)
Journal Article
Agarwal, V., Campbell, A., Beaumont, K. L., Cawkwell, L., & Lind, M. J. (2013). PTEN protein expression in malignant pleural mesothelioma. Tumor Biology, 34(2), 847-851. doi:10.1007/s13277-012-0615-9

Malignant pleural mesothelioma is associated with poor prognosis and despite recent advances in chemotherapy, the median survival is still approximately 12 months. Loss of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) protein expression may lead to constitut... Read More

Pilot and feasibility study: comparative proteomic analysis by 2-DE MALDI TOF/TOF MS reveals 14-3-3 proteins as putative biomarkers of response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in ER-positive breast cancer (2012)

Pilot and feasibility study: comparative proteomic analysis by 2-DE MALDI TOF/TOF MS reveals 14-3-3 proteins as putative biomarkers of response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in ER-positive breast cancer. Journal of Proteomics, 75(9), (2745-2752). doi:10.1016/j.jprot.2012.03.049. ISSN 1874-3919

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is used to treat oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer however chemo-resistance is a major obstacle in this molecular subtype. The ability to predict tumour response would allow chemotherapy administration to be directed... Read More

Proteomic identification of predictive biomarkers of resistance to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in luminal breast cancer: a possible role for 14-3-3 theta/tau and tBID? (2012)
Journal Article
Hodgkinson, V. C., ELFadl, D., Agarwal, V., Garimella, V., Russell, C., Long, E. D., …Cawkwell, L. (2012). Proteomic identification of predictive biomarkers of resistance to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in luminal breast cancer: a possible role for 14-3-3 theta/tau and tBID?. Journal of Proteomics, 75(4), (1276-1283). doi:10.1016/j.jprot.2011.11.005. ISSN 1874-3919

Introduction: Chemotherapy resistance is a major obstacle in effective neoadjuvant treatment for estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. The ability to predict tumour response would allow chemotherapy administration to be directed towards only thos... Read More
