An efficient learner is one who reuses what they already know to tackle a new problem. For a machine learner, this means understanding the similarities amongst datasets. In order to do this, one must take seriously the idea of working with datasets, rather than datapoints, as the key objects to model. Towards this goal, we demonstrate an extension of a(More)
We describe aspects of the tumour microenvironment that are available as targets for manipulation. In particular, the question asked is whether hypoxia in tumours is a problem to be overcome, or a physiological abnormality to be exploited? Bioreductive drugs require metabolic reduction to generate cytotoxic metabolites. This process is facilitated by(More)
The interaction of FAA or TNF with radiation was studied in the murine KHT sarcoma. When used alone both agents showed a dose- and time-dependent toxicity towards the tumour cells and significantly reduced tumour blood flow within 1 h of treatment. When used in combination with radiation, both TNF and FAA caused an increase in the fraction of hypoxic cells(More)
Various bioreductive drugs that are potent hypoxic cell cytotoxins can also function as effective potentiators of radiation action when administered in vivo post irradiation. There is evidence that a contributory mechanism to this potentiation is enhanced sensitivity to the bioreductive drugs exhibited by cells that are damaged sublethally by radiation.
Advances in molecular biology, microfluidics, and laboratory automation continue to expand the accessibility and applicability of these methods beyond the confines of conventional, centralized laboratory facilities and into point of use roles in clinical, military, forensic, and field-deployed applications. As a result, there is a growing need to adapt the(More)
