Understanding EMT: Mechanisms and Metastasis to MET Understanding EMT: Mechanisms and Metastasis to MET
February 20, 2012 |
Epethelial Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) plays a critical role in cancer cells, but understanding of its mechanisms is incomplete. EMT causes cells to develop increased motility, invasiveness, and greater resistance to apoptosis. These changes make the cells more like stem cells, allowing them to self renew. This course provides a framework of the underlying molecular mechanisms while addressing stem cells, and cancer progression, cMET and their activity as anti-metastasis agents, and the Mesenchymal-Epethelial Transition (MET) as an essential process for tumor re-initiation, colonization, and metastasis.
CTCs from Bench to Bed CTCs from Bench to Bed
February 20, 2012 |
This course will focus on validation of CTC research data for clinical practice, correlations between CTCs, diagnosis and responses to therapy.
Targeting Cancer Stem Cells Targeting Cancer Stem Cells
November 3, 2011 |
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been identified in several types of cancer, and may play a role in tumorigenic growth, metastasis, and therapeutic resistance. New anticancer therapeutics are being developed that will inhibit tumor growth and reduce tumor-initiating cell frequency, improving clinical cancer therapy. The development of new agents that block key CSC pathways will be described, as well as a novel assay for tracking CSCs in cell populations without the need to isolate them, and a CSC screening strategy for discovering therapeutic antibodies.




Publications, Reports, & Whitepapers
Ocular Disorders: Rising Therapeutics, Technologies, and Devices
New to Insight Pharma Reports is: Ocular Disorders: Rising Therapeutics, Technologies, and Devices. This report covers several companies and their approach to targeting ocular diseases including wet and dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) while also providing alternative therapeutic options for various ocular complications.
Cancer Immunotherapy Report
Cancer Immunotherapy: immune checkpoint inhibitors, cancer vaccines, and adoptive T-cell therapies, published by Insight Pharma reports and written by Allan B. Haberman focuses on the rising potential for the newest and most promising of cancer treatments: cancer immunotherapy. Cancer immunotherapy was once just a dream in the minds of physicians, clinicians and patients, but only recently (2010s era) has it actually been within reasonable reach. Cancer Immunotherapy: immune checkpoint inhibitors, cancer vaccines, and adoptive T-cell therapies covers three principle therapies that have been in the works for cancer patients.
