  • Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium Data

    Alternate Title(s)
    CPTAC
    Description

    The Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) analyzes cancer biospecimens by mass spectrometry, characterizing and quantifying their constituent proteins, or proteome. Proteomic analysis for each CPTAC study is carried out independently by Proteomic Characterization Centers (PCCs) using a variety of protein fractionation techniques, instrumentation, and workflows. Mass spectrometry and...

    Description

    This dataset includes structured, in-depth interviews with 24 physicians from diverse clinical backgrounds and geographic areas within the United States. These physicians were identified with purposive sampling strategies. Physicians who reported currently caring for patients through active surveillance were invited to participate. An interview guide was developed based on a literature review and previous...

    Description

    This dataset is a product of an investigation of microbe-metabolite relationships in the gut as a means to understand and potentially reduce colorectal cancer (CRC) risk. Microbiota and metabolomics profiling was performed on lyophilized feces from 42 colorectal cancer cases and 89 matched controls. Multivariable logistic regression was used to identify statistically independent associations with CRC....

    Description

    Researchers imaging data along with image-processing algorithms in order to develop a set of candidate image features that can be used to develop a quantitative description of xenografted colorectal chronic tumor hypoxia. These features were used to develop a spatiotemporal logical expression as well as a way to formulate a linear regression function that uses all of the image features to describe...
