On Target Laboratories LLC, a Purdue Research Park company developing a unique fluorescent imaging technology that could help surgeons identify and remove more cancerous tissue, has received Special Protocol Assessment approval from the Food and Drug Administration for its Phase 3 ovarian cancer intraoperative imaging clinical trial. #PurdueCure #cancerresearch

The Indiana State Department of Health is collaborating with clinics and universities from across the state, including the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research, to develop a strategic plan to tackle Indiana’s mortality rate from cervical cancer.

Dr. Joseph Irudayaraj, professor of biologic engineering at Purdue University, is currently working on a prototype test strip that could detect cervical cancer early on. “We have a protein-based test that’s integrated with technology that has a very high level of sensitivity,” said Irudayaraj. “It’s as simple as a pregnancy test. The hope is that we can produce this cheaply and it can be routinely used for screening.” #PurdueCure

A “chemical imaging” system, called stimulated Raman projection microscopy and tomography, uses a special type of laser beam to penetrate deep into tissue. This new imaging system might lead to technologies that eliminate the need to draw blood for diagnosing cancer, and other important uses. #Purdue #PurdueCure

Drug compounds being developed at Purdue University, led by Purdue Center for Cancer Research member Dr. Herman Sintim, could effectively target and inhibit protein kinase enzymes and secondary mutated versions that drive multiple types of cancers. The compounds are non-toxic compared to conventional drugs, potentially eliminating adverse patient side effects. #PurdueCure

Research could lead to test strips for early cervical cancer detection. Purdue researchers are developing technology that could lead to the early detection of cervical cancer with low-cost, easy-to-use, lateral flow test strips similar to home pregnancy tests. #Purdue #cervicalcancer #PurdueCure

Doctors may soon be able to detect and monitor a patient’s cancer with a simple blood test, reducing or eliminating the need for more invasive procedures, according to Purdue University research.

W. Andy Tao, a professor of biochemistry and member of the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research and colleagues identified a series of proteins in blood plasma that, when elevated, signify that the patient has cancer.

Spring is just around the corner! Want to get fit, have FUN, and help support cancer research at Purdue? Sure you do! Sign up for The Challenge 5K today at http://www.thepurduechallenge.com

The Challenge 5K Run/Walk is a certified race in Tippecanoe County to raise money for cancer research at the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research. The race incorporates the community, students, and Purdue athletes, and generally attracts around 1800 participants each year. Participants can sign up to run/walk, volunteer, fundraise as a team, or even sleep-in! All of the money raised goes to support cancer research, funding innovative and high-impact research projects each year. Join our honorary chair, Purdue Football Coach Jeff Brohm, on April 8, 2017 at 8:30 am at Ross-Ade Stadium for this fun event!
