Development of new diagnostic teniques for oncology
The project is directed to the improvement of diagnostic techniques in oncology both in primary diseases and in related infections. The development of high-resolution cytometric techniques and methods of the detection of the telomerase activity will be the goals of the project. Topographic characteristics of appropriate genetic loci in selected tumour tissues will be mesured and correlated to tumour characteristcs. The development of techniques and methods for clinical applications will be followed by industrial development of a confocal cytometr. In addition, methods of detection of the telomerase activity and expresion will be optimised both for the diagnostic purposes, and for testing the sensitivity of cultured tumor cells to cytostatics and potential cytostatic agents. The improvement of diagnostic techniques of fungal infections typical of oncological patients will be the additional goal of the project. DNA probes will be prepared for clinica diagnostics.
