Journal Article
WEICHHAUS, M., BROOM, I. and BERMANO, G. 2011. The molecular contribution of TNF-α in the link between obesity and breast cancer. Oncology reports [online], 25(2), pages 477-483. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3892/or.2010.1099

Obesity is a growing worldwide medical problem, as it pre-disposes the affected hosts to a number of severe diseases, including postmenopausal breast cancer. Obesity development is characterised, amongst others, by aberrant secretion of adipokines. W... Read More about The molecular contribution of TNF-α in the link between obesity and breast cancer..

Molecular aspects of the link between obesity, insulin resistance and breast cancer. (2010)
Thesis
WEICHHAUS, M.G. 2010. Molecular aspects of the link between obesity, insulin resistance and breast cancer. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Obesity is a multi-factorial metabolic disease, resulting in increased adipose tissue acquisition by the host. This disease increases the risk for developing co-morbidities, including Metabolic Syndrome and other disorders such as breast cancer. Obes...

Novel bisnaphthalimidopropyl polyamine derivatives: their mode of action in a breast cancer cell system. (2010)
Thesis
BARRON, G. 2010. Novel bisnaphthalimidopropyl polyamine derivatives: their mode of action in a breast cancer cell system. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The synthesis and characterisation of novel bisnaphthalimidopropyl polyamine (BNIPP) derivatives has gained pace over the last couple of years, as they have enhanced aqueous solubility without loss of biological activity in contrast to parent bisnaph...
