    Abstract : The number of poorly water-soluble drug substances in the pharmaceutical pipeline is increasing, and thereby also the need to design effective drug delivery systems providing high bioavailability. One favourable formulation approach is preparation of solid dispersions, where dispersing a poorly water-soluble drug in a water-soluble polymer matrix improves the dissolution behaviour and the bioavailability of the drug.

    Abstract : Massively parallel sequencing (MPS) is revolutionizing genomics. In this work we use, refine, and develop new tools for the discipline.MPS has led to the discovery of multiple novel subtypes in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). In Study I we screen for fusion genes in 134 pediatric ALL patients, including patients without an assigned subtype. READ MORE
