  Development of new molecular biology-based diagnostic and treatment methods for gynecological cancers

Our research aims to develop new diagnostic and treatment methods for gynecological cancers based upon an understanding of the underlying cell biology and elucidation of carcinogenesis-related molecules. One research aspect of our research focuses on development of human monoclonal antibodies targeting gynecological cancers; these antibodies show great clinical potential based upon their high specificity. Another aspect focuses on familial endometrial cancers and associated germ-line mutations in mismatch repair enzyme genes (hMSH2, hMLH1, hMSH6, etc.). The final aspect focuses on the development of anti-viral drugs towards the E2 and E7 proteins of the human papilloma virus, a virus strongly involved in the carcinogenesis of cervical cancer.
