Teenager Keiran Halliday grows 8 inches in a YEAR after brain tumour

Keiran Halliday, 19, from Bridgend, South Wales, has shot up eight inches in the last year after he was diagnosed with acromegaly, where the body produces too much growth hormone.

In this study, the regulation of glioblastoma-relevant pathways by small non-coding RNAs was analyzed by identification of Argonaute protein-associated microRNAs and mRNAs. We utilized a highly controlled method termed PAR-CLIP-Array by biochemical isolation of cross-linked ribonucleoprotein complexes with monoclonal antibodies specific for individual Argonaute proteins followed by microarray detection. We demonstrate here that the different Argonaute proteins bind different subsets of miRNAs and mRNAs in a glioblastoma cell line model. By extending our study generating miRNA-mRNA network interaction models we could furthe...

uárez César Sanz Roberto Sarmiento The use of hyperspectral imaging (HSI) in the medical field is an emerging approach to assist physicians in diagnostic or surgical guidance tasks. However, HSI data processing involves very high computational requirements due to the huge amount of information captured by the sensors. One of the stages with higher computational load is the K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) filtering algorithm. The main goal of this study is to optimize and parallelize the KNN algorithm by exploiting the GPU technology to obtain real-time processing during brain cancer surgical procedures. Thi...

AbstractInter-individual heterogeneity of tumors leads to non-effectiveness of unique therapy plans. This issue has caused a growing interest in the field of personalized medicine and its application in tumor growth evaluation. Accordingly, in this paper, a framework of personalized medicine is presented for growth prediction of brain glioma tumors. A convection –diffusion–reaction model is used as the patient-specific tumor growth model which is associated with multimodal magnetic resonance images (MRIs). Two parameters of intracellular area fraction (ICAF) and metabolic rate have been used to incorporate the ...

Despite the improvement in cure rates, patients treated by radiotherapy are at risk of development of secondary malignancies. We conducted a comprehensive literature review of the secondary intracranial tumors that occurred following radiotherapy to pituitary aden...
