  1. 1. Apoptosis Regulation in Multiple Myeloma

    Author : Lina Dimberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Marie Arsenian Henriksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biomedicine; multiple myeloma; apoptosis; survival; IFN; Stat1; Stat3; IGF-I; RTK inhibitor; PPP; IAP; Fas CD95; dexamethasone; Biomedicin;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a virtually incurable B cell malignancy of the bone marrow. One important part of tumor progression and an obstacle for successful therapy is resistance to apoptosis. To combat this resistance, the mechanisms of apoptosis and survival in MM must be better defined. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Regulation of Growth and Survival in Human Multiple Myeloma Cells by IGF-I Receptor Signaling

    Author : Thomas Strömberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Anders Waage; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable B-cell malignancy mainly localized to the bone marrow. Our aim was to examine the growth- and survival-promoting role of the IGF-IR and its downstream signaling components in MM cells to identify potential targets for therapy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Oncogenic ALK signaling in neuroblastoma

    Author : Ganesh Umapathy; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaplastic lymphoma kinase; neuroblastoma; ERK5; Akt; MYCN; mTOR;

    Abstract : Over the last decade Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK), a receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) has been identified as a translocation partner in diverse cancer types. In tumors, where the full-length ALK RTK itself is mutated, such as neuroblastoma, the picture is less clear regarding ALKs role as an oncogenic driver. READ MORE
