On 14 March 2000, John Foxton Ross Kerr, Emeritus Professor of Pathology at the University of Queensland, received the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize for his description of apoptosis, a form of cell death. The prize, which he shared with Boston biologist Robert Horvitz, is considered to be one of the most prestigious European awards in science, second only to the Nobel Prize. 
In Vivo Detection of Apoptosis
The most recent developments in the biochemical characterization of the many intracellular pathways involved in this complex process are discussed and the use of MRI, MR spectroscopy, and ultrasound as possible alternative imaging modalities for the imaging of apoptosis is addressed.
Translational imaging: imaging of apoptosis.
This chapter reviews the basic biochemical and morphologic features of apoptosis and the methods developed thus far to image this complex process in humans.
Regulated cell death in diagnostic histopathology.
In this review, the historical perspective and conceptual development of RCD is discussed, recent classifications and some of the key players in RCD are overviewed, and current applications of R CD in diagnostic histopathology are focused on.
Apoptosis: Its Physiological Implication And Therapeutic Possibilities
Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death (PCD) which usually occurs in multicellular organisms. In this case, biochemical events leads to morphological cell changes and death. Some of these
Apoptosis-A Distinctive Form of Cell Death as Biochemical, Molecular and Morphological Changes
It can be considered as the process by which cells undergo as form of non-necrotic cellular suicide that permits the safe disposal of cells at the point in time when they have fulfilled their intended biological function.
Endothelial Apoptosis and Repair in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
The role of endothelial apoptosis as an initiating event in the development of PAH will be reviewed and current concepts pertaining to the emergence of hyperproliferative and ­apoptosis-resistant ECs in later stages of this disease will be discussed.
Knockdown of ubiquitin‑specific peptidase 39 inhibits the malignant progression of human renal cell carcinoma.
Findings indicate that USP39 may serve as an oncogenic factor in RCC and could be a potential therapeutic candidate for human RCCs.
Classic articles in apoptotic research : A bibliometric analysis
Background: Classic articles are defined as research papers with a total citation of one thousand or more. The present study is to identify and analyse the characteristics of the classic articles in
Classic articles in Apoptotic Research: A Bibliometric Analysis
The characteristics of the classic articles in apoptosis research are identified and the historical and discoveries related to the pathophysiology of apoptosis as well as the most impact publications on apoptosis studies are revealed.
