  1. 1. Stem and progenitor cell involvement in acute lymphoblastic leukemia

    Author : Anders Castor; Stamcellscentrum (SCC); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer; Haematology; Cytology; oncology; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; ETV6-RUNX1; BCR-ABL1; stem cells; Acute lymphoblastic leukemia; extracellular fluids; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor;

    Abstract : Leukemic stem cells (LSCs) share the capacity of self renewal and extensive proliferation with normal hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), and are therefore obvious targets for therapy. As such, they need to be identified and characterized in order to elucidate what drives them, and what separates them from their normal counterparts. READ MORE

    Abstract : Hematopoietic stem cells are an ideal target for genetic manipulation for the purpose of curing hematological disorders as they have the ability to develop into all blood lineages and to self-renew. In this study we demonstrate that lentiviral vectors, based on HIV-1, can efficiently transfer genes into human hematopoietic progenitor and stem cells as assessed following stem cell transplantation in immune compromised mice.

  3. 3. Identification and Characterization of Stem Cells in Preleukemia and Leukemia

    Author : Lars Nilsson; Stamcellscentrum (SCC); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Haematology; extracellulära vätskor; Hematologi; Philadelphia chromosome; acute lymphoblastic leukemia; polycytemia vera; 5q- syndrome; myelodysplastic syndromes; self-renewal; preleukemia; Hematopoietic stem cells; leukemic stem cells; extracellular fluids;

    Abstract : Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are responsible for the daily and life long production of large numbers of mature blood cells through highly regulated self-renewal and multilineage capabilities. Leukemias on the other hand, are characterized by a clonal, dysregulated, lineage skewed proliferation and impaired differentiation as the result of multiple accumulated genetic events. READ MORE

  4. 4. Consequences of Shb Deficiency on Hematopoietic Cell Function

    Author : Karin Gustafsson; Michael Welsh; Martin Bergö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hematopoiesis; hematopoietic stem cells; myeloid neoplasia; T cells; atopic dermatitis; cell signaling; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The adaptor protein Shb has been implicated in the signaling of several tyrosine kinase receptors and previous studies have suggested a role for Shb in the signal transduction of T cells. Shb associates with the T cell receptor (TCR) and partakes in the signal propagation of activated T lymphocytes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cancer and cancer stem cell targeting agents : A focus on salinomycin and apoptin

    Author : Jaganmohan Reddy Jangamreddy; Marek Los; Karin Roberg; Anna-Lotta Hallbeck; Boris Zhivotovsky; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Current cancer treatments involving surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy target the vast majority of cancer cells, but they are only partially effective in eliminating the disease. Failure to eliminate cancer with conventional treatments can lead to recurrence, which usually kills patient. READ MORE
