  1. 1. Antibody-Based Radionuclide Targeting for Diagnostics and Therapy : Preclinical Studies on Head and Neck Cancer

    Author : Marika Nestor; Matti Anniko; Jörgen Carlsson; Hans Lundqvist; Vladimir Tolmachev; Matthew Robinson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Otorhinolaryngology; antibodies; radionuclide targeting; tumour targeting; therapy; diagnostics; immuno-PET; head and neck squamous cell carcinoma; Otorhinolaryngologi;

    Abstract : Antibody-based targeting techniques play an increasingly important role in cancer research. By targeting a structure that is abundant in tumour cells, but rare in healthy tissues, an antibody can mediate the delivery of radioactivity specifically to tumour cells in the body. READ MORE

  2. 2. Deciphering Binding Patterns of Therapeutic Antibodies with Immune Cells : From Method Development to Application

    Author : Sina Bondza; Jos Buijs; Marika Nestor; Mark Cragg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; affinity; binding kinetics; CD20; cell-based assay; immunology; receptor-ligand interaction; therapeutic antibody; Immunologi; Immunology; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Reversible binding, for example between signaling molecules and receptors on the cell surface, is one of the main means to communicate information in cellular systems. Knowledge about how molecules interact is crucial for both understanding biological function and for therapeutic intervention. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards time-resolved molecular interaction assays in living bacteria

    Author : João Crispim Encarnação; Karl Andersson; Marika Nestor; U. Helena Danielson; Hélène Munier-Lehmann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intracellular Molecular Interactions; Real-Time Cell Binding Assays; Bacteria; LigandTracer; Kinetics; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biofarmaci; Biopharmaceutics; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Rare and neglected diseases such as multidrug resistant (MDR) tuberculosis, malaria and trypanosomiasis are re-emerging in Europe. New strategies are needed to accelerate drug discovery to fight these pathogens. READ MORE

  4. 4. Targeting molecules for diagnostics of Head and Neck squamous cell carcinoma

    Author : Anna-Karin Haylock; Marika Nestor; Göran Laurell; Matti Anniko; Katrine Riklund; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HNSCC; CD44v6; radio-immunodiagnosis; immuno-PET; tumor targeting; antibodies; antibody fragments; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; Oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : To personalize treatment for cancer, correct staging of the primary tumor, nodal disease and metastatic disease is of essence. By targeting tumor specific receptors with radiolabeled antibodies, specificity and accuracy of imaging may be improved. READ MORE

  5. 5. Colorectal cancer and radiation response : The role of EGFR, AKT and cancer stem cell markers

    Author : Sara Häggblad Sahlberg; Bo Stenerlöw; Bengt Glimelius; Marika Nestor; Torgny Stigbrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; colorectal cancer; radiation; AKT; EGFR; cancer stem cells; CD133; CD44; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology;

    Abstract : The primary treatment for colorectal cancer is surgery. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy, sometimes combined, are also frequently used to diminish recurrence risk. In response to radiation exposure, several cellular signaling cascades are activated to repair DNA breaks, prevent apoptosis and to keep the cells proliferating. READ MORE
