  1. 1. Autocrine growth stimulation in human bladder cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholms universitet

    Author : Anders Ruck; Nils-Erik Heldin; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Bladder cancer is one of the most common human cancers which, on a worldwide basis, represents 3-4 % of all malignancies. It is primarily occuring in people over 60 and males are about 2-3 times more likely to develop bladder cancer than are women. READ MORE

  2. 2. CD40L Gene Therapy for Solid Tumors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lina Liljenfeldt; Thomas Tötterman; Angelica Loskog; Sara Mangsbo; Evren Alici; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CD40L; adenovirus; tumor immunology; tumor microenvironment; immunotherapy; local immunotherapy; antigen presentation; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Adenoviral CD40L gene therapy (AdCD40L) is a strong inducer of anti-tumor immune responses via its activation of dendritic cells (DCs). Activated DCs can in turn activate T cells, which are key players in an efficient anti-tumor response.This thesis includes three papers that focus on different aspects of AdCD40L gene therapy.

  3. 3. Transforming Growth Factor-b, Regulatory functions on normal lymphocytes and tumor outgrowth Regulatory functions on normal lymphocytes and tumor outgrowth

    University dissertation from BMC Biomedical Centre, Lund University

    Author : Åsa Schiött; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TGF-b; monocyte; rat; costimulation; Th2; ERK; tumor; TIL; Immunology; serology; Immunologi; transplantation; T-lymphocyte; serologi;

    Abstract : Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-b) is a well-characterised growth regulatory factor, which acts on most cell types. This thesis has focused on the regulatory roles of TGF-b on normal lymphocytes. One interesting finding is that TGF-b acts both costimulatory and inhibitory on T-lymphocytes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immunological analysis of the human tumor cell surface : characterization of polypeptides associated with urinary bladder carcinoma

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Staffan Paulie; [1985]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Tumors express antigens characteristic of their malignant phenotype, a fact that has become exploited for the diagnosis of certain types of cancer. As these tumor-associated antigens (TAA) may also provide Information on the molecular mechanisms of tumorogenesls as well as constituting the basis for immunotherapeutlc approaches, much Interest has been focused on the Identification and characterization of TAAs.
