  1. 1. Vitamin D Hydroxylating Enzymes and Analogues in Parathyroid Tumors and Breast Cancer

    Author : Ulrika Segersten; Gunnar Westin; Per Hellman; Göran Åkerström; Martin Bäckdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; hyperparathyroidism; breast cancer; vitamin D; CYP27B1; CYP24A1; vitamin D analogues; ketoconazole; vitamin D receptor; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : In hyperparathyroidism (HPT) raised serum concentrations of ionized calcium is caused by increased secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH) by parathyroid tumors. Active vitamin D, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, is known to suppress PTH secretion and to reduce proliferation of parathyroid tumor cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prognostic and Predictive Factors in Bladder Cancer

    Abstract : Bladder cancer is a potentially curable malignancy; however in regards to the state of current therapy regimens, a plateau has been reached in both the non-muscle and muscle invasive types. To obtain effective treatment, and consequently a decreased mortality, it has become imperative to test and understand aspects affecting therapy response. READ MORE

    Abstract : Urinary bladder cancer is a heterogeneous disease appearing in different forms, e.g. non-muscle invasive and muscle invasive. For all variants, the expression of proteins is interesting to analyze for diagnostic, predictive, prognostic and drug targeting purposes, since it reflects the altered gene expression causing the cancer.

    Abstract : Copy number variation (CNV) comprises a recently discovered kind of variation involving deletion and duplication of DNA segments of variable size, ranging from a few hundred basepairs to several million. By altering gene dosage levels or disrupting proximal or distant regulatory elements CNVs create human diversity. READ MORE
