    Oxysterols arise from the enzymic or non-enzymic oxidation of cholesterol and have been shown to be cytotoxic to certain cell lines. In particular, apoptosis induced by the oxysterol 7β-hydroxycholesterol (7β-OH) has been ...
  • Pakrashi, Vikram; O'Connor, Alan J.; Breysse, Denys (MEDACHS08, 2008)
    Deterioration modelling of structures has gained significant importance in recent times in relation with structural health monitoring, rehabilitation, maintenance and decision making process. The behaviour of any deteriorating ...
  • Doherty, Aiden R.; Kelly, Philip; O'Flynn, Brendan; Curran, Padraig; Smeaton, Alan F.; Ó Mathúna, S. Cian; O'Connor, Noel E. (ACM, 2010)
    Colour is everywhere in our daily lives and impacts things like our mood, yet we rarely take notice of it. One method of capturing and analysing the predominant colours that we encounter is through visual lifelogging devices ...
  • Doran, Justin; Jordan, Declan; O'Leary, Eoin (School of Economics, University College Cork, 2009-04)
    This paper analyses the effects of geography on innovation by small and medium sized enterprises in the South-West and South-East regions of Ireland. Using an augmented innovation production function it estimates, both ...
  • Doran, Justin; Jordan, Declan; Eoin, O'Leary (2012-07)
    This paper analyses the importance of decisions to interact nationally and internationally on the likelihood of process and product innovation for a sample of Irish firms. The key contribution is to provide an empirical ...
  • Clune, Yvonne E. (University College Cork, 2005)
    Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the fourth most common cause of death from cancer in the world and second most common (behind lung cancer) in developed countries. In recent years there has been much interest in the potential ...
