  1. 1. The leukocyte complexity and mutational landscape of periampullary adenocarcinoma. Morphology matters

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Sebastian Lundgren; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; periampullary adenocarcinoma; pancreatic cancer; immune microenviroment; prognosis; macrophages; natural killer cells; natural killer T cells; T cells; B cells;

    Abstract : Background: Periampullary adenocarcinomas are a heterogenous group of tumours with poor prognosis that hasnot improved considerably the last decades. Tumour morphology, i.e. intestinal type (I-type) or pancreatobiliarytype (PB-type), has been demonstrated to be a more relevant prognostic factor than anatomical origin. READ MORE

    Abstract : Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant and also the most common form of brain tumour in humans. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate morphological and diagnostics features in human GBM that may be of importance for prognosis and treatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Targeting the prostate tumor microenvironment and vasculature the role of castration, tumor-associated macrophages and pigment epithelium-derived factor

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Author : Sofia Halin; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; angiogenesis; castration therapy; microenvironment; stroma; tumor-associated macrophages; pigment epithelium-derived factor; PEDF; vasculature; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Patologi; patologi; Pathology;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Swedish men. For patients with metastatic prostate cancer the standard therapy is castration, a treatment that initially provides symptomatic relief but unfortunately is not curative. New therapeutic targets for advanced prostate cancer are therefore needed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Crosstalk between colorectal cancer cells and tumour-associated macrophages

    University dissertation from Cell Pathology

    Author : Yuan Zhang; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CD47; tumour-associated macrophage; matrix metalloproteinase; cell migration; colon cancer;

    Abstract : Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of death from cancer worldwide. People suffering from inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohns’ disease and ulcerative colitis, are at an increased risk of developing CRC. The development of CRC is highly influenced by the tumour microenvironment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring mechanisms regulating the heterogeneity of Tumor-Associated Macrophages

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Majken Wallerius; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Accumulation of macrophages in the tumor microenvironment is associated to poor prognoses in most human cancers. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) represent a heterogeneous and plastic population of cells that contribute to tumor growth, metastatic dissemination, angiogenesis, and immune suppression. READ MORE
