  2. 2. Modelling the evolution of treatment-induced resistance in Ph+ leukaemias

    Author : Jonathan Lindström; Ran Friedman; Arne Traulsen; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic myeloid leukaemia; Stochastic modelling; Tyrosine kinase inhibitor; Drug resistance; Clonal evolution; Biomedical Sciences; Biomedicinsk vetenskap; Medicinsk kemi; Medical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Targeted therapies are a mainstay of modern cancer treatments. Rather than harming rapidly dividing cells in general, targeted therapies work by directly interfering with oncogenic molecular pathways present in a tumour. Consequently, a targeted therapy typically has less severe side effects. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nucleic acid analysis tools : Novel technologies and biomedical applications

    Author : Iván Hernández-Neuta; Mats Nilsson; Frank Bier; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nucleic acid analysis; padlock probes; selector probes; rolling circle amplification; microfluidics; single-molecule detection; digital quantification; fluorescence microscopy; mobile phone microscopy; molecular diagnostics; virology; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Nucleic acids are fundamental molecules of living organisms functioning essentially as the molecular information carriers of life. From how an organism is built to how it responds to external conditions, all of it, can be found in the form of nucleic acid sequences inside every single cell of every life form on earth. READ MORE

  4. 4. Selenium Compounds and Antioxidant Capacity in Bovine Milk. Studies on Glutathione Peroxidase, Bioavailability and Electrochemical Techniques

    Author : Jun Chen; Kemiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; General biomedical sciences; Biomedicinska vetenskaper allmänt ; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Chemical technology and engineering; Livsmedelsteknik; Food and drink technology; amperometry; voltammetry; antioxidant capacity; ileostomy; bioavailability; glutathione peroxidase; bovine milk; selenium;

    Abstract : The efficacy and function of antioxidants have been intensively studied in foods and other biological systems in recent decades. This thesis concerns different aspects of the antioxidant properties of bovine milk, with emphasis on measurement of the total antioxidant capacity (TAC), the activity of the selenium-containing glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx), and the bioavailability of selenium from bovine milk in humans.
