We review novel, in vivo and tissue-based imaging technologies that monitor and optimize cancer therapeutics. Recent advances in cancer treatment centre around the development of targeted therapies and personalisation of treatment regimes to individual tumour characteristics. However, clinical outcomes have not improved as expected. Further development of(More)
We present recent data on dynamic imaging of Rac1 activity in live T-cells. Förster resonance energy transfer between enhanced green and monomeric red fluorescent protein pairs which form part of a biosensor molecule provides a metric of this activity. Microscopy is performed using a multi-functional high-content screening instrument using fluorescence(More)
The Rho GTPase Cdc42 regulates cytoskeletal changes at the immunological synapse (IS) that are critical to T-cell activation. By imaging fluorescent activity biosensors (Raichu) using fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy, Cdc42 activation was shown to display kinetics that are conditional on the specific receptor input (through two IS-associated(More)
Functional imaging can provide a level of quantification that is not possible in what might be termed traditional high-content screening. This is due to the fact that the current state-of-the-art high-content screening systems take the approach of scaling-up single cell assays, and are therefore based on essentially pictorial measures as assay indicators.(More)
Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) accounts for over 90 % of thyroid malignancies, and is frequently associated with central neck compartment nodal metastasis that requires a therapeutic central compartment neck dissection (CCND) for clinically evident nodes. Current knowledge on the expected lymph node yield from a CCND is limited, compared with data on(More)
Genomics and proteomics will improve outcome prediction in cancer and have great potential to help in the discovery of unknown mechanisms of metastasis, ripe for therapeutic exploitation. Current methods of prognosis estimation rely on clinical data, anatomical staging and histopathological features. It is hoped that translational genomic and proteomic(More)
Breast cancer heterogeneity demands that prognostic models must be biologically driven and recent clinical evidence indicates that future prognostic signatures need evaluation in the context of early compared with late metastatic risk prediction. In pre-clinical studies, we and others have shown that various protein-protein interactions, pertaining to the(More)
INTRODUCTION Metastases to the parathyroid gland are very uncommon. Although renal cell carcinoma metastasis to the head and neck region is well recognised, with a predilection for unpredictable metastasis to unusual sites such as the thyroid gland, nose, paranasal sinuses, and cranial bones, there are no reports of parathyroid gland involvement.

BACKGROUND Head and neck cancer of unknown primary (HNCUP) is a source of diagnostic uncertainty. Patients presenting with cytologically positive neck lumps without a clinically identifiable primary, require extensive investigation including imaging, tonsillectomy, panendoscopy and tissue biopsy. Treatment typically involves neck dissection, wide field(More)
OBJECTIVE To perform a systematic review comparing the xoutcome of cochlear implantation in children with developmental disability with children without developmental disability. DATA SOURCES MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane databases were searched from 1950 or the start date of each database. The search was performed on 1st November 2012, and included(More)
