  1. 1. Computational modelling in systems biology: from rewriting cell fates to detecting tumours

    Author : Emil Andersson; Centrum för miljö- och klimatvetenskap (CEC); []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Beräkningsmodeller; Systembiologi; Genreguleringsnätverk; Cellomprogrammering; Energilandskap; iPSC; Agentbaserad modellering; T-cellsutveckling; Maskininlärning; Tumördiagnostik; Computational modelling; Systems biology; Gene regulatory network; Cell reprogramming; Energy landscape; iPSC; Agent-based modelling; Multi-scale modelling; T-cell development; Machine learning; Tumour diagnostics;

    Abstract : Computational modelling is becoming an increasingly important tool in biological research. By performing computer simulations of models, it becomes possible to test theories about a biological system against experimental data. Simulations can also be used as a replacement for experiments otherwise unattainable. READ MORE

  2. 2. Multiparametric MRI for evaluation of tumour treatment response : Studies of 177Lu-octreotate therapy of neuroendocrine tumour

    Author : Mikael Montelius; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cancer; Functional imaging; IVIM; MRI; DWI; DCE; histology; 177Lu-octreotate; small intestine neuroendocrine tumour; NET; diffusion; perfusion; semi-quantitative; proteomics; ionizing radiation; biology; imaging biomarker;

    Abstract : Clinical assessment of tumour response to treatment largely relies on estimates of tumour size by, e.g., measuring the largest tumour diameters on magnetic resonance (MR) or computed tomography (CT) images, weeks or months after treatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic and Epigenetic Profiling of Mantle Cell Lymphoma and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    Author : Anna Margrét Halldórsdóttir; Richard Rosenquist; Reiner Siebert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mantle cell lymphoma; chronic lymphocytic leukemia; copy number aberration; proliferation signature; TP53; SNP array; methylation array; Haematology; Hematologi; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Tumour biology; Tumörbiologi; Medical Genetics; Medicinsk genetik; Oncology; Onkologi; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) both belong to the group of mature B-cell malignancies. However, MCL is typically clinically aggressive while the clinical course of CLL varies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tumour evolution and novel biomarkers in breast cancer

    Author : Jana Biermann; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast cancer; gene signature; molecular biomarkers; tumour clonality; genomic instability; Swedish haemangioma cohort;

    Abstract : Several gene signatures have been proposed in the past two decades to improve outcome prediction for breast cancer patients and to guide treatment decisions. Current treatment guidelines, however, primarily focus on established clinicopathological features. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tumour Targeting Using Radiolabelled EGF Conjugates : Preclinical Studies

    Author : Åsa Liljegren Sundberg; Jörgen Carlsson; Lars Gedda; Vladimir Tolmachev; Erik Blomquist; Gregory P. Adams; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiation sciences; targeting; tumour; EGF; radionuclide; gefitinib; Iressa; ZD1839; glioma; therapy; diagnostics; Strålningsvetenskap; Radiation biology; Strålningsbiologi;

    Abstract : Tumour targeted radiotherapy is an appealing approach for treatment of disseminated tumour cells. A targeting agent that specifically binds to a structure on tumour cells is then used to transport therapeutically relevant radionuclides. The epidermal growth factor receptor, EGFR, is overexpressed on tumour cells in several malignancies, e.g. READ MORE
