    Abstract : Background Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common malignancy in developed countries. The mortality is high, with nearly half of patients dying from the disease. The primary treatment of CRC is surgery, and decisions about additional treatment with chemotherapy are based mainly on tumor stage. READ MORE

  2. 2. Telomere length as prognostic parameter in chronic lymphocytic leukemia

    Abstract : B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is the most common leukemia among the adult population in western countries and accounts for 30-40% of all leukemias. With survival time ranging from months to decades, the clinical course of individual CLL patients is highly variable. READ MORE

  3. 3. p63 and epithelial homeostasis : studies of p63 under normal, hyper-proliferative and malignant conditions

    Abstract : Background: The p63 gene is a member of the p53 transcription factor family and can produce six different proteins using two promoters and differential splicing. Expression of p63 is required for proper formation of epithelial tissues. READ MORE

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

    Author : Sofia Halin; Anders Bergh; Pernilla Wikström; Stina Rudolfsson; Carl-Henrik Heldin; Umeå universitet; []

    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

  5. 5. Signalling pathways in renal cell carcinoma with a focus on telomerase regulation

    Author : Raviprakash Tumkur Sitaram; Göran Roos; Anders Bjartell; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein complex that catalyses telomeric repeat addition at the ends of chromosomes. The catalytic subunit, hTERT, acts as a key determinant for telomerase activity control; the induction of hTERT expression is required for telomerase activity. READ MORE
