  1. 1. Biomarker Discovery in Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma : A Study Based on Tissue Microarrays and Immunohistochemistry

    Author : Margrét Agnarsdóttir; Fredrik Ponten; Peter Naredi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibody-based proteomics; automated analysis; biomarker; immunohistochemistry; malignant melanoma; survival; tissue microarray; Tumour biology; Tumörbiologi; Pathology; Patologi; Molecular medicine; Molekylär medicin; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma has increased dramatically in Caucasians the last few decades, an increase that is partly explained by altered sun exposure habits. For the individual patient, with a localized disease, the tumor thickness of the excised lesion is the most important prognostic factor. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of apoptosis during treatment and resistance development in tumour cells

    Author : Jeanette Blomberg; Erik Lundgren; John Eriksson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tumörbiologi; Tumour biology; Tumörbiologi;

    Abstract : Induction of apoptosis is the most studied cell death process and it is a tightly regulated physiological event that enables elimination of damaged and unwanted cells. Apoptosis can be induced via activation of either the intrinsic or the extrinsic signalling pathway. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigations of Proneural Glioblastoma to Identify Novel Therapeutic Targets

    Author : Maria Boije; Lene Uhrbom; Bengt Westermark; Rolf Bjerkvig; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Glioma; proneural subtype; hallmarks; glioma initiating cells; S-SOX5; angiogenesis; stromal cells; Tumour biology; Tumörbiologi; Experimentell patologi; Experimental Pathology;

    Abstract : Malignant glioma is a highly lethal and destructive disease with no proper cure. We have investigated some of the hallmarks of cancer in connection to glioma and found ways to disrupt these and prevent tumor growth. The work is done within the context of a glioma subtype distinguished by activation of PDGF signaling termed the proneural subtype. READ MORE

  4. 4. p63 and potential p63 targets in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck

    Author : Linda Boldrup; Karin Nylander; Wendy Weinberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SCCHN; p63; Cox-2; EGFR; β-catenin; PP2A; p53; Tumour biology; Tumörbiologi;

    Abstract : Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN), the 6th most common cancer worldwide, has a low 5-year survival. Disease as well as treatment often causes patients severe functional and aesthetic problems. READ MORE

  5. 5. The CpG island methylator phenotype in colorectal cancer : studies on risk and prognosis

    Author : Anna Dahlin; Richard Palmqvist; Bethany van Guelpen; Maria Henriksson; Åke Öberg; Xiao-Feng Sun; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Colorectal cancer; DNA methylation; folate; microsatellite instability MSI ; prognosis; risk factors; t-lymphocytes; the CpG island methylator phenotype CIMP ; Vitamin B12; Pathology; Patologi; Tumour biology; Tumörbiologi; patologi; Pathology;

    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
