    Abstract : Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is an aggressive malignancy in man with stromal fibrosis as one of the main features. Carcinoma cells synthesized no or little collagen I protein. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hormonal regulation of liver and tumor growth

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Ville Wallenius; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Liver; cytokine; interleukin-6; tumor necrosis factor; primary liver growth promoter; cyproterone acetate; nafenopin; hepatocyte growth factor; HGF receptor; tumor; sarcoma; N-terminal; truncated;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to investigate the regulatory functions of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a) on liver growth, and the importance of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and the HGF receptor (Met) for growth of mesenchyme-derived tumors. The studies on different types of liver growth, measured as weight, DNA and protein content, and DNA synthesis, were performed on mice lacking the IL-6 or the TNF receptor-1 gene back-crossed to the C57bl/6 strain.

  4. 4. Studies of the tumor microenvironment Local and systemic effects exerted by the cross-talk between tumor and stroma cells in pancreatic cancer

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Vegard Tjomsland; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal cancers and despite all research efforts the last 50 years, there are still no effective therapy for this terrible disease. Until quite recently most research in the field of pancreatic duct adenocarcinoma (PDAC) was focused on the tumor cells and mechanisms essential for their proliferation and survival. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellular, Molecular and Functional Characterization of the Tumor Suppressor Candidate MYO1C

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Ineko AB

    Author : Kittichate Visuttijai; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Medicin; MYO1C; myosin IC; tumor suppressor gene; cancer; tumor; PI3K AKT signaling;

    Abstract : Tumor suppressor genes play a role as a growth regulator and a gatekeeper of a cell. Their inactivation is often detected in malignant tumors. Identification of novel tumor suppressor gene candidates may help to further understand tumorigenesis and aid in the discovery of a new treatment leading toward cure of cancer. READ MORE
