Method For Treating and/or Imaging Breast Cancer Using Radioactive Iodine
This invention involves treating a breast cancer patient by the administration of a radioisotope of iodine in a dosage of between 5 and 50 milliCuries over the course of a day. The therapeutic composition is designed for mammary tissue uptake and includes an inorganic radioactive iodide salt (e.g., alkali metal, alkali earth or transition met...

Novel Biosensor Based on Parylene Cantilevers
A Wayne State University researcher has developed a novel biosensor for DNA and protein microarray applications as well as lab-on-a-chip assays. The biosensor is composed of a micro-scale cantilever made of a polymer material with a modulus of elasticity significantly less than cantilever-based biosensors utilizing silicon nitride. Biosensors base...

Antibodies to a Novel Cell Cycle and Apoptosis Regulatory Protein (CARP) -1
Wayne State University researchers have identified a novel cDNA which encodes a pro-apoptotic protein called CARP-1 (Cell Cycle and Apoptosis Regulatory Protein-1), which is expressed in many cancer cell types including breast and colon carcinoma cells. This novel cDNA can be used as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for many types of cancer. Bac...

Derivation of Molecular Targets of Cancer and Aging Using Cellular Immortalization-Specific Gene-Expression
This technology identifies molecular targets required for immortalization, which is a trait spontaneously acquired by cancer cells. These targets may provide a potential means to intervene in the process of aging or cancer development. Background & Unmet Need: Recent efforts to develop improved methods for breast cancer detection, staging, an...
