  1. 1. Role of Wnt5a in Prostate Cancer

    Author : Azharuddin Sajid Syed Khaja; Malmö Urologisk cancerforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate Cancer; Wnt5a; tissue micro array; Biochemical recurrence; Gene fusions;

    Abstract : Wnt5a is a non-canonical secreted glycoprotein of the Wnt family that plays important roles in organ development and tissue orientation. Previous studies have reported that Wnt5a was upregulated at both mRNA and protein levels in prostate cancer, but information regarding its role in predicting clinical outcome in patients after radical prostatectomy is limited.

  2. 2. Inhibition of WNT5A Signaling and Function in Malignant Melanoma

    Author : Rickard Linnskog; Malmö Experimentell cancerforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; WNT5A; Malignant Melanoma; Migration; Invasion; TGFβ; IL-6; p38-MAPK;

    Abstract : The life-threatening disease of malignant melanoma is one of the fastest growing forms of cancer, affecting an estimated number of 200,000 patients worldwide every year. Although highly curable if detected early, once the melanoma has metastasized there are few treatment options and a median survival rate of only 6-9 months. READ MORE

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide with approximately 1.150.000 new cases each year and accounting for over 400.000 deaths per year. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wnt5a signaling in Malignant Melanoma

    Author : Elin Ekström; Malmö Experimentell patologi; []

    Abstract : The Wnt signaling pathway is highly conserved and crucial during embryonic development. Aberrant Wnt signaling is important in several different disease processes. One such disease process is the development and progression of cancer. Malignant melanoma is a highly aggressive tumor type, in which Wnt signaling is essential. READ MORE

  5. 5. Role of novel tumor suppressors in colon cancer : Mechanisms and therapeutic opportunities

    Author : LUBNA MEHDAWI; Malmö Cellpatologi; []
    Keywords : Tumor Suppressor Genes; 15-PGDH; WNT5A;

    Abstract : Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the world and the fourth most common cause of cancer related deaths. Inflammation is one of the risk factors for development of colon cancer. Interestingly immune cells as mast cells and inflammatory mediators as LTC4 play an important role in colon cancer. READ MORE
