  2. 2. In Vitro Drug Sensitivity and Apoptosis in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    Author : Maria Norberg; Richard Rosenquist; Anna Åleskog; Elin Lindhagen; Gerard Tobin; Per-Ola Andersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic lymphocytic leukemia; in vitro drug sensitivity; apoptosis; prognostic markers; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Haematology; Hematologi; Molecular medicine genetics and pathology ; Molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap; Clinical Genetics; Klinisk genetik; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics; Medical Genetics; Medicinsk genetik; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Abstract : Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a heterogeneous malignancy displaying varying clinical outcome, where molecular markers today can divide patients into prognostic subgroups. Despite the introduction of new agents for treatment, remissions are usually not sustained in CLL and resistance towards treatment can partly be explained by aberrant apoptosis. READ MORE

  3. 3. New Insights in Adrenal Tumourigenesis

    Author : Rajani Maharjan; Peyman Björklund; Michaela Luconi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cortisol producing adenomas; adrenocortical carcinomas; mutation; heterogeneity; PRKACA; TERT; CTNNB1; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Unilateral cortisol producing adenoma (CPA) is the most common cause of ACTH-independent Cushing’s syndrome and is surgically curable. On the other hand, adrenocortical carcinomas (ACCs) are rare and aggressive tumours. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cellular effects of ionizing radiation : Relevant for understanding cancer risk after medical and environmental radiation exposures

    Author : Pamela Chiaka Akuwudike; Andrzej Wojcik; Lovisa Lundholm; Kerstin Borgmann; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiation; DNA damage; radiation-induced carcinogenesis; second primary cancer; cisplatin chemoradiotherapy; dose fractionation; low dose; low dose rate; dose and dose rate effectiveness factor DDREF ; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Radiation-induced cancers are stochastic and delayed effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. The dose-response relationship for radiation-induced cancers at both low dose/low dose rates and high doses (doses encountered during radiotherapy) remains unclear. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biomarkers of ionising radiation relevant to carcinogenesis : Dose, dose rate and LET dependency of the responses

    Author : Milagrosa López Riego; Andrzej Wojcik; Lovisa Lundholm; Alexandros G. Georgakilas; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ionising radiation; low dose; low dose rate; linear energy transfer LET ; mixed beams; dose and dose rate effectiveness factor DDREF ; cancer; DNA damage response; biomarkers; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : A better understanding of the relationship between ionising radiation (IR) dose, dose rate and radiation quality, and the risk of stochastic effects would improve risk extrapolation from atomic bomb survivors’ data. Owing to insufficient statistical power of epidemiological studies to detect excess incidence of cancer following low doses of IR delivered at low dose rates (LDLDR), as typically encountered in most common human exposure scenarios, radiobiological experiments are fundamental to describe the biological effectiveness of LDLDR and to define the underlying molecular mechanisms.
