  • My Chihu The Greatest Tragedy Of My Life

    a best friend, more so than a pet. However, much of this changed when we found out she had a fatty benign tumor. 1.) At the age of 13 in 2013, Tiny was diagnosed with a tumor on the inferior, anterior side of her body. It was very small and moved fairly easily. Thankfully, the vet techs at Town and Country were able to confirm that this was just a fatty benign tumor. Which is really wonderful news when it could have just as well been cancer. We were informed to keep an eye on it but more than likely it would never turn into anything. As the years passed, she would…

  • Differences And Characteristics Of Malignant And Benign Tumors

    1. Discuss the differences between a malignant and benign tumor and how they may be used in diagnosing the cancer. (See Characteristics of Malignant and Benign Tumors.) The definition of a tumor is cellular growth that no longer responds to the normal body controls (549), or cells that don’t know when to stop growing. The most basic difference between a benign and a malignant tumor is that a malignant tumor is cancerous cells. Benin tumors are usually differentiated cells that are reproducing at…

  • Summary Of Paging Dr. Pigeon

    training and using pigeons to identify benign or malignant breast tumors by looking at a slide from a biopsy or a mammogram at the University of California Davis medical Center, University of Iowa, and the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Emory University. This study was conducted as a tool and “surrogates for human subjects in medical image perception studies because they can be used in repetitive ways that few people could tolerate” (Bakalar, 2015). The study also stated that…

  • Cancer Informative Speech

    What is cancer? Cancer is the normal cells in your body that become abnormal by not being able to perform the final processes of the cell cycle, apoptosis, and die. When cancer cells cannot perform this process of dying they continue to rapidly grow and multiply. Eventually they become a large growth of cells also known as a tumor. When a tumor is not harmful it is called a “benign” tumor. When a tumor is harmful and cancerous it is considered “malignant”. From there the cancer is at stage 1…

  • Brain Tumor Image Research Paper

    shape feature extraction of MRI brain tumor image retrieval. We used T1 weighted image of MRI brain tumor images. There are two modules: feature extraction process and classification. First, the shape features are extracted using techniques like Scale invariant feature transform (SIFT), Harris corner detection and Zernike moments. Second, the supervised learning algorithms like Deep neural network (DNN) and Extreme learning machine (ELM) are used to classify the brain tumor images. Experiments…

  • Mitophagy Lab Report

    recruit other hydrolyte for degradation3-4. Mitophagy and cancer Tumor cells usually provide ROS to their microenvironment. This abnormal concentration of ROS can active TGF-beta or NFKB signaling pathway in the cancer cells. As a result, tumor stromal cells stimulate mitophagy process, releasing a great amount of energy to support cancer cells’ survival5. However, if there is extremely high concentration of ROS or high percentage of mitophagy in tumor cells, it will also kill them. So,…

  • Drosophila Melanogaster Lab Report

    The simple but revolutionary organism Drosophila melanogaster has intricate properties that are studied to find its relations with human genes. Not only is D. melanogaster a model organism for its rapid growth, inexpensive culturing, and easy modifications, the Drosophila can provide more in-depth scientific analysis that can solve human diseases. The model organism D. melanogaster is studied to find ground-breaking research in neurology, sleep, cancer, and drug discovery. The multivariable…

  • Essay On Taxotere

    Taxotere (Docetaxel) from the bark of Pacific Yew tree. Additionally because it is a plant alkaloid, it is also cell-cycle specific. This also means that the drugs target the cells at a particular time and as the name suggest – during cell division. It works similarly as paclitaxel. How is Taxotere (Docetaxel) taken? Docetaxel Taxotere can only be taken via injection or intravenous infusion into the veins. It doesn’t come in capsules or tablets. You take the injections or drip from a registered…

  • Dana Farber Cancer Case Study

    The Center for Nanotechnology in Cancer (CNTC) at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA is forced to assess its organization situation in 2010. According to the case study, written by Heidi K. Gardner, Edo Bedzra, and Shereef M. Elnahal titled Ganging Up on Cancer: Integrative Research Centers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (A): The mission of the CNTC is to transform cancer therapy by enabling the early detection of cancer using nanoparticles and molecular imaging, as well as by…

  • Diffuse Optical Tomography Essay

    Diffuse Optical Tomography is non invasive, non ionizing functional imaging modality used for detection of brain tumor and breast cancer. A forward model design depicts the placement of laser source and photo-detector around the tissue boundary. The light propagation on the phantom takes place in Near-Infra-Red wavelength. The incident light on the tissue boundary was absorbed and scattered. The scattered rays are detected by the photo-detector and scattered voltage of the tissue was measured.…
