Journal Article
ON, J., SHIM, J., MACKAY, C., MURRAY, G., SAMUEL, L., PARNABY, C. and RAMSAY, G. 2021. Pathological response post neoadjuvant therapy for locally advanced rectal cancer is an independent predictor of survival. Colorectal disease [online], 23(6), pages 1326-1333. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1111/codi.15512

Aim: Neoadjuvant treatment (NaT) for locally advanced rectal cancer prior to surgery has led to improved outcomes. However, the relationship between pathological response to NaT and survival is not entirely clear. The aim of this study was to assess...

Quantifying and predicting the effect of anti-TNF therapy on axSpA-related fatigue: results from the BSRBR-AS registry and meta-analysis. (2020)
Journal Article
SHIM, J., DEAN, L.E., KARABAYAS, M., JONES, G.T., MACFARLANE, G.J. and BASU, N. 2020. Quantifying and predicting the effect of anti-TNF therapy on axSpA-related fatigue: results from the BSRBR-AS registry and meta-analysis. Rheumatology [online], 59(11), pages 3408-3414. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1093/rheumatology/keaa132

Objectives: Effective management of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA)-related fatigue is a major unmet clinical need. Anti-TNF therapy may reduce fatigue levels, although any effect has yet to be definitively quantified and predictors of any such impro...
