  1. 1. Soluble intercellular and vascular cell adhesion molecules-1 in lymphoid neoplasms : A clinical and prognostic study of Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and chronic B-lymphocytic leukaemia

    Author : Ilse Christiansen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Hodgkin s disease; non-Hodgkin s lymphomas; chronic lymphocytic leukaemia; sICAM-1; sVCAM-1; prognostic markers; VCAM-1; ICAM-1; Hodgkin cell lines; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; Clinical Immunology; klinisk immunologi;

    Abstract : The interaction of soluble adhesion molecules with adhesion ligands expressed by immunological cells interfere with the cell-cell adhesion essential for the signal transductions that initiate immunological responses. Preliminary data suggest that soluble adhesion molecules also promote angiogenesis. READ MORE
