      Biphasic modeling of brain tumor biomechanics and response to radiation treatment 

      Angeli, S.; Stylianopoulos, T. (2016)
      Biomechanical forces are central in tumor progression and response to treatment. This becomes more important in brain cancers where tumors are surrounded by tissues with different mechanical properties. Existing mathematical ...

      Lung cancer in the pregnant woman: To treat or not to treat, that is the question 

      Jr, H. A. Azim; Peccatori, Fedro A.; Pavlidis, Nicholas (2010)
      Lung cancer in pregnancy is a rare situation; however, it is increasingly reported in the past two decades. The association might be more encountered in the coming years due to the rising trends of cigarette smoking among ...

      Mechanical stress regulates tissue oxygenation, cancer cell proliferation and drug delivery during progression of solid tumors 

      Mpekris, F.; Angeli, S.; Pirentis, A. P.; Stylianopoulos, T. (Springer Verlag, 2016)
      Oxygen supply plays a central role in cancer cell proliferation. While vascular density increases at the early stages of carcinogenesis, mechanical solid stresses developed during growth compress tumor blood vessels and, ...

      Pelvic osteomyelitis in children 

      Kumar, Jai; Ramachandran, M.; Little, David G.; Zenios, Michalis (2010)
      Pelvic osteomyelitis is a rare disease that presents like many other common paediatric orthopaedic conditions. The diagnosis and management of the disease is often delayed and as a consequence this may contribute to increased ...

      Renal cell carcinoma in pregnancy: A rare coexistence 

      Boussios, Stergios; Pavlidis, Nicholas (2014)
      Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is rarely diagnosed during pregnancy and its management represents a real challenge. As the symptomatology might mimic other common pregnancy-related disorders, the diagnosis is often delayed. ...
