The Common Bonds between Cancer Classes
The authors mapped an entire field of research to find out how certain cancer types are associated with each other.!--h2>
Our goal for this analysis was to ask questions such as:
—How are selected cancer types associated with each other?
In order to answer the questions, we built a broad database of cancer biomarker publications using PubMed data, and then categorized and segmented the database into 36 cancer types and 441 molecular entities.
Highlights of this report:
Enal Razvi, Ph.D., conducted his doctoral work on viral immunology and subsequent to receiving his Ph.D. went on to the Rockefeller University in New York to serve as Aaron Diamond Post-doctoral fellow under Professor Ralph Steinman [Nobel Prize Winner in 2011 for his discovery of dendritic cells in the early-70s with Zanvil Cohn]. Subsequently, Dr. Razvi completed his research fellowship at Harvard Medical School. For the last two decades Dr. Razvi has worked with small and large companies and consulted for more than 100 clients worldwide. He currently serves as Biotechnology Analyst and Managing Director of SelectBio U.S. He can be reached at [email protected].
