Background PCR using bisulfite-treated DNA as a template, which is  followed by next generation sequencing (NGS), has a major potential as a diagnostic tool, by identifying DNA derived from specific tissue based on cell type-specific methylation ...

Gertler Arieh
Background Most cancers are unstable and highly susceptible to cell death; hence tumors represent a steady-state picture of unregulated proliferation as well as ongoing cell death. Therefore, substantial levels of tumor specific DNA may be ...

Background Fluorescence guided surgery is currently clinically approved for non-specific fluorescent molecules (ICG and MB) and is therefore limited in terms of sensitivity and specificity. Most cancer targeted fluorescent molecules in ...

Blum Galia
    Background The process of cancer metastasis consists of a series of sequential events that requires deregulated proliferation and eventually distal dissemination involving detachment from the extracellular matrices and invasion of the ...

Nechushtai Rachel
  Background Existing methods for removing potentially tumorigenic residual pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) from differentiated cultures are based on either genetic manipulations or on cell sorting. Such processes are generally not suitable for ...

Reich Reuven
Background To date, clinical tests that assess the level of malignancies from patient biopsies rely almost inclusively on histological analysis for specific markers and morphological cues as well as on genetic data i.e mutation analysis. In ...
