CanPath Research Round-Up: Prostate Cancer Awareness

For September 2022’s #ProstateCancerAwarenessMonth, we shared insights across our social media channels from prostate cancer studies by CanPath researchers. Thanks to rich data from over 330,000 volunteer participants and researchers’ efforts, we can help change the future of prostate cancer! CanPath’s Research Round-Up highlights work on prostate cancer from Atlantic PATH and collaborators using our Read more about CanPath Research Round-Up: Prostate Cancer Awareness[…]

Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

This #ProstateCancerAwarenessMonth, we’re sharing insights from recent studies from researchers across Canada. Today, we’re sharing findings from Sheida Majouni, PhD candidate from Dalhousie University! In 2022, Majouni and colleagues applied machine learning to arsenic species and metal profiles of toenails from Atlantic PATH. They aimed to understand environmental metal’s potential to produce disease, specifically prostate cancer: https://bit.ly/3eVjUMK “Artificial Read more about Prostate Cancer Awareness Month[…]

Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

This #ProstateCancerAwarenessMonth, we’re sharing insights from recent studies from researchers across Canada. Today, we’re sharing findings from Gabriela Ilie, PhD, associate professor at Dalhousie University and DMRF Endowed Scientist in Cancer Quality of Life Research! In 2019, Dr. Gabriela Ilie, Dr. Rob Rutledge and Dr. Ellen Sweeney examined the association between depression and anxiety and Read more about Prostate Cancer Awareness Month[…]

Applying Machine Learning to Arsenic Species and Metallomics Profiles of Toenails to Evaluate Associations of Environmental Arsenic with Incident Cancer Cases

Authors: Sheida Majouni, Jong Sung Kim, Ellen Sweeney, Erin Keltie, Syed Sibte Raza Abidi Ebook: Volume 294: Challenges of Trustable AI and Added-Value on Health Abstract: Chronic exposure to environmental arsenic has been linked to a number of human diseases affecting multiple organ systems, including cancer. The greatest concern for chronic exposure to arsenic is Read more about Applying Machine Learning to Arsenic Species and Metallomics Profiles of Toenails to Evaluate Associations of Environmental Arsenic with Incident Cancer Cases[…]

New Publication

Congratulations to Majouni et al. on the new publication, “Applying Machine Learning to Arsenic Species and Metallomics Profiles of Toenails to Evaluate Associations of Environmental Arsenic with Incident Cancer Cases.” This research involves analyzing toenail samples from Atlantic PATH, as well as machine learning algorithms to arsenic species and metallomics profiles to investigate the complex Read more about New Publication[…]

Congratulations to Dr. Samina Abidi, Dr. Raza Abidi, Dr. Ellen Sweeney and team on their successful CIHR Catalyst grant, “Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence based Platform for Early Chronic Disease Risk Assessment and Prediction to Improve Population Health.”  This project will leverage digital health/e-health and artificial intelligence technologies to develop a Personalized Risk Investigation, Stratification Read more about Funding News[…]

New Publication

We’re excited to announce a new publication in Frontiers in Public Health (Environmental Health and Exposome). This article uses toenail samples to assess arsenic speciation and metallomics to assess prostate cancer cases in the Atlantic PATH population.  This research was supported with funding from the Canadian Cancer Society/Prostate Cancer Canada, New Brunswick Health Research Foundation, Read more about New Publication[…]

Arsenic Speciation and Metallomics Profiling of Human Toenails as a Biomarker to Assess Prostate Cancer Cases: Atlantic PATH Cohort Study

Authors: Erin Keltie, Kalli Hood, Yunsong Cui, Ellen Sweeney, Gabriela Ilie, Anil Adisesh, Trevor Dummer, Veni Bharti, Jong Sung Kim Journal: Frontiers in Public Health (Environmental Health and Exposome) Abstract: Chronic exposure to inorganic arsenic and trace metals has been linked to prostate cancer, and altered arsenic methylation capacity may have an important role in Read more about Arsenic Speciation and Metallomics Profiling of Human Toenails as a Biomarker to Assess Prostate Cancer Cases: Atlantic PATH Cohort Study[…]
