  2. 2. Lymphangiogenesis and lymphatic metastasis

    Author : Meit A Björndahl; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Angiogenesis; lymphangiogenesis; lymphatic metastasis; PDGF; IGF; VEGF-A;

    Abstract : The major cause of cancer mortality is metastasis, which relies on the growth of blood vessels (haemangiogenesis) and lymphatic vessels (lymphangiogenesis). Whereas the field of haemangiogenesis has been relatively thoroughly studied, little is known about the mechanisms regulating lymphangiogenesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mathematical modeling of fluid and solute transport in peritoneal dialysis

    Author : Jacek Waniewski; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; diffusion; convective transport; perfusion; lymphatic absorption; ultrafiltration; osmosis; continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis;

    Abstract : Optimization of peritoneal dialysis schedule and dialysis fluid composition needs, among others, methods for quantitative assessment of fluid and solute transport. Furthermore, an integrative quantitative description of physiological processes within the tissue, which contribute to the net transfer of fluid and solutes, is necessary for interpretation of the data and for predictions of the outcome of possible intervention into the peritoneal transport system.

  4. 4. Studies of the Tumor-Vasculature Interface : Role of TGF-beta 1-induced Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition

    Author : Mei-Fong Pang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Tumor metastasis is a complex multistep process. Among key steps that occur during metastatic spread are acquisition of tumor cell motility, intravasation of tumor cells into blood or lymphatic vessels and extravasation of tumor cells at distal sites. However, the precise mechanisms that govern these metastatic steps remain elusive. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hem- and lymph-angiogenesis in cancer metastasis

    Author : Hong Ji; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis, the process of sprouting new microvessels from the preexisting vasculature, is known to promote tumor growth. However, the role of tumor angiogenic vessels in facilitating metastasis remains poorly understood. READ MORE
