  1. 1. Genetic Profiling in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine Doctoral Dissertation

    Author : Princy Francis; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; synovial sarcoma; prognosis; Cytology; SS18-SSX; intratumor heterogeneity; aCGH; array comparative genomic hybridization; gene expression analysis; microarray; cDNA; Soft tissue sarcoma; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are a heterogeneous group of highly malignant mesenchymal tumors that account for ~1% of all malignancies. Frequent heterogeneity and pleomorphism along with suboptimal diagnostic reproducibility and insufficient prognostic markers make clinical management of these tumors difficult. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adipose tissue gene expression & candidate genes for obesity

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Lovisa Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Insulin resistance; Obesity; Adipose tissue; Adiponutrin; PNPLA; PPARGC1A; Gene expression; Case-control association study; Microarray; Genotyping; Population-based study;

    Abstract : Obesity results from an interaction between genetic and environmental factors and is a growing health problem associated with development of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This thesis has focused on investigating the genetic contribution in obesity and insulin resistance by both candidate and global gene approaches with focus on the adipose tissue. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microarray analysis of gene expression in human adipocytes and adipose tissue

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Margareta Jernås; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; obesity; adipose tissue; insulin resistance; serum amyloid A; NAD P H:quinone oxidoreductase 1; Zinc-alpha2 glycoprotein; cell death-inducing DFFA-like effector A; DNA microarray;

    Abstract : Obesity has reached epidemic proportions worldwide and is associated with several serious conditions such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis. Adipose tissue exerts important endocrine and immune functions through the release of adipokines. READ MORE
