  1. 1. Quantitative analysis of tumor growth and response to therapy

    Author : Esmaeil Mehrara; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tumor; growth; response; therapy; modeling; clinical;

    Abstract : Modeling the natural growth of tumors is of value for evaluation of tumor progression and optimization of treatment strategies. However, modeling tumor growth based on clinical data is hampered by the limited data available, since therapy is in general initiated as early as possible after diagnosis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tumor gene therapy using Semliki forest virus replicons

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Paula Colmenero; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Semliki Forest Virus; Alphavirus; Recombinant Vaccine; Tumor Antigen; P815; IL-12;

    Abstract : A major challenge in cancer research is to design effective vaccines that can break immunological tolerance to tumor antigens. Over the past ten years several immunotherapeutic strategies aimed at modulating the patient's immune response to fight cancer have been tested in clinical trials. READ MORE

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma (NB) is a tumor of the sympathetic nervous system and is the most common extra-cranial tumor of childhood, accounting for 7% of all pediatric malignancies. Despite recent advances in therapeutics, outcome is still fatal for patients with aggressive NB and side-effects of treatment are severe. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of new approaches for tumor suppressor genes identification

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Jinfeng Li; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
