  1. 1. Androgen controlled regulatory systems in prostate cancer potential new therapeutic targets and prognostic markers

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Author : Peter Hammarsten; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; prostate cancer; angiogenesis; human biopsy; androgen ablation; castration; prognostic marker; prognostic factor; growth control; VEGF; vascular endothelial growth factor; EGFR; epidermal growth factor receptor; pEGFR; phosphorylated EGFR; phosphorylated epidermal growth factor receptor; VETERINARY MEDICINE Pathology; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Patologi;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer is by far the most common cancer among Swedish men. Some patients have an aggressive lethal disease, but the majority of affected men have long expected survival. Unfortunately, the diagnostic tools available are insufficient in predicting disease aggressiveness. Novel prognostic markers are therefore urgently needed. READ MORE

    Abstract : Early Effects of Castration Therapy in Non-malignant and Malignant Prostate TissueBACKGROUND. Androgen ablation, the standard treatment for advanced prostate cancer, results in increased apoptosis, decreased cell proliferation and subsequent involution of the prostate gland. READ MORE

  3. 3. A functional genomics approach to study prostate disorders

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

The prostate is dependent on androgen hormones for itsgrowth and function. READ MORE

  5. 5. Smad7 in TGF-β Signalling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Greger Brodin; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; TGF-β; Smad7; Prostate; Transcription; Gene targeting; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Members of the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) superfamily of growth and differentiation factors regulate a vast array of biological functions in the adult, and are of great importance in governing cell fate determination and patterning in the developing embryo. The TGF-β signal is propagated intracellularly by Smad proteins resulting in transcriptional responses. READ MORE
