    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

    Abstract : In addition to malignant cells, solid tumors comprise supporting stromal tissue that consists of extra cellular matrix (ECM), connective tissue cells, inflammatory cells and blood vessels. The stromal compartment and the malignant cells together shape the tumor microenvironment that in turn determines tumor progression and efficacy of anti-tumor treatments. READ MORE

  3. 3. A multivariate approach to computational molecular biology

    Author : Fredrik Pettersson; Michael Sjöström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PLS; PCA; biomarker; Drosophila; SNP; linkage; disequilibrium; bioinformatics; computational; molecular; biology; genomics; microarray; SELDI; proteomics; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the application of multivariate methods in analyses of genomic DNA sequences, gene expression and protein synthesis, which represent each of the steps in the central dogma of biology. The recent finalisation of large sequencing projects has given us a definable core of genetic data and large-scale methods for the dynamic quantification of gene expression and protein synthesis.

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

    Author : Mikael Montelius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    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

  5. 5. Computational Analysis of Tumour Heterogeneity

    Author : Stefanie Friedrich; Erik Sonnhammer; Martin Hemberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tumour heterogeneity; human genome and gene expression analyses; pathway annotation; fusion transcript detection; copy number calling; and high-resolution data; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Every tumour is unique and characterised by its genetic, epigenetic, phenotypic, and morphological signature. The diversity observed between and within tumours, and over time, is termed tumour heterogeneity. An increased heterogeneity within a tumour correlates with cancer progression, higher resistance rates, and poorer outcome. READ MORE
