    Abstract : The tumor-associated antigen EpCAM (epithelial cell-adhesion molecule) (C017-1A) is over expressed by various human carcinomas, including colorectal carcinoma (CRC). This antigen can be used as a target structure for specific immunotherapy with vaccines and monoclonal antibodies (MAb). READ MORE

  4. 4. On the possible use of oxysterols for the diagnosis and evaluation of patients with neurological and neurodegenerative diseases

    Author : Valerio Leoni; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Multiple sclerosis; Alzheimer s disease; oxysterol; central nervous system; gas chromatography-mass spectrometry; blood brain barrier; cholesterol;

    Abstract : Oxysterols are monooxygenated derivatives of cholesterol with a unique ability to pass lipophilic membranes and are involved in a number of elimination pathways for cholesterol. One of the major oxysterols in the circulation, 24S-hydroxycholesterol, is formed exclusively in the brain, mainly in neuronal cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Spinal cord oxygenation during thoracic aortic clamping in pigs

    Abstract : Despite a dramatic reduction in the mortality associated with thoracoabdominal aorticreplacement during the past 40 years, spinal cord ischaemia that results in paraplegia remainsa serious complication. Simple and reliable intraoperative monitoring techniques are neededto detect impending neurological deficit in time to prevent permanent damage. READ MORE
