[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...
[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...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: The Man with the Crateriform Lesion: Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph Brancheck
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common type of skin cancer in the United States and accounts for 20 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers; in addition, it is the second most common cancer overall in Caucasians. Due to an aging population and increasing sun exposure, the...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Speaking Up: The Patient Push for Accelerating Progress in Cancer Research
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Leslie Hammersmith
Medical research empowers us to fight cancer, and advocacy empowers us to ensure that it addresses the needs of people affected by cancer. Advocacy helps us get through our cancer experiences, stand up for all people affected by cancer and gain a feeling of control over our own healthcare. Young...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Materials Science vs. Metastasis
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Daniel A. Heller
Metastasis, the spread of cancer cells from a primary tumor to seed secondary tumors in distant sites, is one of the greatest challenges in cancer treatment today. For many patients, by the time cancer is detected, metastasis has already occurred. Over 80% of patients diagnosed with lung cancer,...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Chemical Imaging for Histopathology: An Emerging Route for Molecular and Structural Analysis of Tissues
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Walsh
Mid-Infrared (IR) spectroscopic imaging is an emerging approach to derive chemical images from tissues based on their inherent biochemistry. Histologic diagnosis is the gold standard for evaluating the presence and severity of most diseases. Current histopathological techniques use of panel of...
