CANcer BEhavioural nutrition and exercise feasibility trial (CanBenefit); phase I qualitative interview findings (2020)
Journal Article
Swan, F., Chen, H., Forbes, C. C., Johnson, M. J., & Lind, M. (in press). CANcer BEhavioural nutrition and exercise feasibility trial (CanBenefit); phase I qualitative interview findings. Journal of Geriatric Oncology, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jgo.2020.09.026

Background: Older people with lung cancer are often frail and unfit due to their cancer and co-morbidities and may tolerate cancer treatments poorly. Physical activity (PA) and a healthy diet offer quality of life benefit to people with cancer before...

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.

Physical activity and nutrition interventions for older adults with cancer: a systematic review (2020)

Purpose: The aim of this review was to summarize the current literature for the effectiveness of activity and nutritional based interventions on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in older adults living with and beyond cancer (LWBC). Methods: We... Read More about Physical activity and nutrition interventions for older adults with cancer: a systematic review.

The investigation of lipoxygenases as therapeutic targets in malignant pleural mesothelioma (2019)
Journal Article
Oguh-Olayinka, L., Agarwal, V., Ranatunge, D., Campbell, A., Laufer, S., Cawkwell, L., & Lind, M. J. (in press). The investigation of lipoxygenases as therapeutic targets in malignant pleural mesothelioma. Pathology and Oncology Research, https://doi.org/10.1007/s12253-019-00652-x

Advanced malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) has an extremely poor prognosis with limited chemotherapy options, therefore the identification of new therapeutic targets would aid in disease management. Arachidonic acid is metabolised by cyclo-oxygena... Read More about The investigation of lipoxygenases as therapeutic targets in malignant pleural mesothelioma.

CAMERA - complete assessment of elderly patients with cancer: A non-randomised feasibility study (2018)
Journal Article
Jackson, G., Gabe, R., Johnson, M., Date, K., Harman, D., Maraveyas, A., …Lind, M. J. (2019). CAMERA - complete assessment of elderly patients with cancer: A non-randomised feasibility study. Journal of Geriatric Oncology, 10(1), 175-177. doi:10.1016/j.jgo.2018.07.005

One of the primary risk factors in the development of cancer is older age. The demographic shift to an ageing population has given rise to an increased number of older patients with cancer. The extreme heterogeneity within this population renders app... Read More about CAMERA - complete assessment of elderly patients with cancer: A non-randomised feasibility study.

MicroRNA-31 regulates chemosensitivity in malignant pleural mesothelioma (2017)
Journal Article
Moody, H. L., Lind, M. J., & Maher, S. G. (2017). MicroRNA-31 regulates chemosensitivity in malignant pleural mesothelioma. Molecular Therapy - Nucleic Acids, 8(15 September 2017), 317-329. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.omtn.2017.07.001

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is associated with an extremely poor prognosis, and most patients initially are or rapidly become unresponsive to platinum-based chemotherapy. MicroRNA-31 (miR-31) is encoded on a genomic fragile site, 9p21.3, whi... Read More about MicroRNA-31 regulates chemosensitivity in malignant pleural mesothelioma.

Arginine deprivation with pegylated Arginine Deiminase in patients with Argininosuccinate Synthetase 1-Deficient Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma: A Randomized Clinical Trial (2016)
Journal Article
Szlosarek, P. W., Steele, J. P., Nolan, L., Gilligan, D., Taylor, P., Spicer, J., …Hackshaw, A. (2017). Arginine deprivation with pegylated Arginine Deiminase in patients with Argininosuccinate Synthetase 1-Deficient Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma: A Randomized Clinical Trial. JAMA Oncology, 3(1), 58-66. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2016.3049

Importance: Preclinical studies show that arginine deprivation is synthetically lethal in argininosuccinate synthetase 1 (ASS1)-negative cancers, including mesothelioma. The role of the arginine-lowering agent pegylated arginine deiminase (ADI-PEG20)...

A large proportion of lung cancer patients in England are diagnosed through an emergency route, which is associated with poorer outcomes. Here, we investigated the association between emergency presentation and the odds of undergoing surgical resecti...

Clinical response to primary letrozole therapy in elderly patients with early breast cancer : possible role for p53 as a biomarker (2014)
Journal Article
Garimella, V., Hussain, T., Agarwal, V., Radhakrishna, S., Fox, J. N., Kneeshaw, P. J., …Cawkwell, L. (2014).

International journal of surgery, 12(8), 821-826. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijsu.2014.06.009

Primary tamoxifen therapy has been widely used to treat elderly women with ER-positive breast cancer in the past. Aromatase inhibitors may be more beneficial than tamoxifen when used as primary endocrine therapy in elderly patients. We aimed to retro...
