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 bisn...
