    Abstract : Multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominantly inherited disease, which is described as an association of tumors mainly in endocrine organs, including pancreas and adrenal glands. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are the most common cause of death in MEN1 patients. READ MORE

    Abstract : Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) and lung carcinoids (LCs) are relatively indolent tumors, which originate from neuroendocrine (NE) cells of the diffuse NE system. Metastases can spread before diagnosis. Thus, potential cures become unavailable, which entitles new biomarker development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tumour Biological Factors Characterizing Metastasizing Serotonin-producing Ileocaecal Carcinoids

    Author : Janet Lynn Cunningham; Eva Tiensuu Janson; Kjell Öberg; Irvin M. Modlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Internal medicine; endocrine tumour; midgut carcinoid; serotonin-producing neuroendocrine carcinoma; prognosis; morphology; tachykinin; connective tissue growth factor; islet autoantigen-2; morphology; carcinoid syndrome; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : In this study, metastasizing serotonin-producing ileocaecal carcinoid tumours (MSPCs) were examined for biological characteristics that could be used to define clinically relevant subgroups within this patient population. Possible targets for new treatment options were also explored. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analyses of Dose-Response and Mechanistic Action of Different Anti-Cancer Drugs for Neuroendocrine Tumor Cell Lines

    Author : Dhana E Larsson; Dan Granberg; Sadia Hassan; Kjell Öberg; Jens F Rehfeld; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Cancer is a disease with poor response rates on available treatments. Problems with resistance and intolerance against cancer drugs are major reasons for failure of the drugs. The need to discover new cancer drugs is important. In this thesis screening of new cancer drugs and evaluation of their mechanism of action are discussed. READ MORE
