    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a virtually incurable B cell malignancy of the bone marrow. One important part of tumor progression and an obstacle for successful therapy is resistance to apoptosis. To combat this resistance, the mechanisms of apoptosis and survival in MM must be better defined. READ MORE

  2. 2. Thiol redox state in apoptosis : physiological and toxicant modulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Abstract : Apoptosis is a physiological type of cell death used to regulate the number of cells during development and im adult organs. However, apoptosis can also be inappropriately activated or inhibited under pathological conditions. One of the critical mechanisms of apoptosis is the activity of cysteine proteases belonging to the caspase family. READ MORE

    Abstract : Cancer and its treatments can cause a variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms are related to the disease and others are seen as a consequence of the treatment. Since patients experience side effects to different degrees despite undergoing the same treatment, it is hypothesized that there is a genetic factor. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immunogenicity of and apoptosis modulation by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-encoded latent membrane protein-1 (LMP1) : Implications for nasopharyngeal carcinoma

    Abstract : Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a ubiquitous human herpesvirus which infects more than 90% of individuals in the population, and has been shown to be associated with a variety of human tumors. The viral genome encodes a number of transforming proteins which enable the virus to efficiently immortalize B lymphocyte and also transform cells of other types. READ MORE
