scu Berindan-Neagoe An increasing number of studies suggest the implication of microRNAs (miRNAs) in colorectal (CRC) carcinogenesis and disease progression. Nevertheless, the basic mechanism is not yet clear. We determined plasma miRNA expression levels using Agilent microarray technology followed by overlapping with The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) tissue data and a qRT-PCR validation step and analysis of the altered miRNA signatures to emphasize new mechanistic insights. For TGCA dataset, we identified 156 altered miRNAs (79 downregulated and 77 upregulated) in colorectal tissue samples versus normal tissue. The mi...

AbstractImmunoscore® is an in vitro diagnostic assay that is designed to predict the risk of relapse in patients with early-stage colon cancer, thus helping to guide treatment strategies. Immunoscore has CE-IVD status in the EU, is CLIA certified in the USA, and is commercially available in many other countries worldwide. It is designed to be used in conjunction with TNM staging. Immunoscore uses digital images of tumour samples and advanced software to quantify the densities of CD3+ and CD8+ lymphocytes in defined regions of the tumour (i.e. core tumour and the invasive margin). A risk score is calculated, with a lowe...

AbstractRobotic-assisted surgery is evolving, with improving clinical and cancer outcomes. The aim of this study was to present the clinical and cancer outcomes of patients undergoing robotic-assisted colorectal surgery (RAS-CR) at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) since its introduction to the 100th case, using the daVinci Xi dual-console surgical system. The RAS-CR programme at UHL commenced in June 2016 and the 100th case was performed in July 2019. All patient-related data were recorded prospectively during the perioperative period by the RAS-CR team. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS, version 22. One hund...

reto Garcia Valente A family of compounds with the general formula [Fe(η5-C5H5)(CO)(PPh3)(NCR)]+ has been synthesized (NCR = benzonitrile (1); 4-hydroxybenzonitrile (2); 4-hydroxymethylbenzonitrile (3); 4-aminobenzonitrile (4); 4-bromobenzonitrile (5); and, 4-chlorocinnamonitrile (6)). All of the compounds were obtained in good yields and were completely characterized by standard spectroscopic and analytical techniques. Compounds 1, 4, and 5 crystallize in the monoclinc P21/c space group and packing is determined by short contacts between the phosphane phenyl rings and cyclopentadienyl (compounds 1 and 4)...
