    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common tumour form and the second leading cause of death in solid tumours in women in the Western world. Despite improvements in the treatment, a considerable number of patients will relapse and die from their breast cancer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Extracellular matrix remodelling proteases in acute appendicitis and their impact on appendiceal perforation

    University dissertation from Oncology, Lund

    Author : Anna Solberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; appendicitis; perforation; extracellular matrix; MMP-9; TIMP-1; uPA; PAI-1;

    Abstract : Abstract Background Appendicitis is associated with varying degradation of extracellular matrix involved in tissue injury. The principal aim of this study was to investigate whether immunoreactive techniques could illustrate the course and severity of appendicitis and separate the different inflammatory grades, phlegmonous, gangrenous and perforated appendicitis, from each other and from uninflamed appendix.

  3. 3. Migration on extracellular matrix surface and infiltration into matrix - two distinguishable activities of human T cells

    University dissertation from Oncology, Lund

    Author : Jyrki Ivanoff; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; extracellular matrix; fibronectin; collagen type IV; laminin; neuropeptide; chemokine; TIMP-1; MMP-9; T cells; Migration; Immunologi; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi; Clinical Immunology; klinisk immunologi;

    Abstract : Migration of T-lymphocytes on a surface coated with extracellular matrix (ECM) components (two-dimensional (2-D) migration) and migration (infiltration) into a matrix (Three-dimesional (3-D) migration) are complex events and the underlying mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Here 2-D and 3-D migration were studied by use of seven leukemic T-cell lines representing discrete differentiation stages, a non-leukemic T-cell clone, and normal peripheral blood T cells.
