  13. [Illinois] BioEngineering Seminar Series: Novel Receptor-Targeting Radiolabeled Peptides for Cancer Imaging

    26 Nov 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Yubin Miao

    Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and melanocortin-1 (MC1) receptors are attractive molecular targets for cancer imaging due to their over-expressions on cancer cells. GnRH and alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) peptides can bind the GnRH and MC1 receptors with nanomolar...

    15 Jun 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Yingxiao "Peter" Wang

    Biophotonics Summer School 2011The Biophotonics Summer School brings together from a wide variety of disciplines to teach students about the biophotonics field. In 2011, some of the topics covered included principles of biophotonics, technology and methods of investigation. The latest research...

  16. [Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: T Cell Receptors For Potential Cancer Immunotherapy Applications: Single Chain T Cell Receptors Circumvent Mispairing with Endogenous TCR and Mediate T Cell Activity

    09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: David H. Aggen

    To improve the immune response to cancer, gene therapy with tumor-specific T cell-receptors (TCRs) provides an attractive approach to effectively arm patients T cells for tumor cell destruction. A high-affinity TCR specific for an antigenic peptide-major histocompatibility complex (pepMHC) can be...

  17. [Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Imaging Estrogen Receptors and Estrogen-Receptor Function in Breast Cancer by Positron Emission Tomography (PET): Improved Selection of Patients for Benefit from Endocrine Therapies

    09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: John A. Katzenellenbogen

    The growth of many breast cancers is regulated by estrogens, and these cancers can be treated effectively with endocrine therapies (ET). Identifying patients who will benefit from ET, however, continues to be challenging. Measurement of estrogen receptor (ER) levels in tumor biopsy samples using...
