  1. 11. Regulation of apoptosis in human multiple myeloma

    Author : Helena Spets; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; apoptosis; multiple myeloma; IL-6; Bcl-2; Fas; dexamethasone; IGF-I; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a clonal expansion of malignant plasmablasts-plasma cells in the bone marrow. MM is slowly proliferating and an increased resistance to apoptosis may be crucial for the tumor progression. READ MORE

  2. 12. Taking Pressure of Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma : Molecular Studies of Apoptosis and Interstitial Hypertension

    Author : Pernilla Roswall; Nils-Erik Heldin; Kristofer Rubin; Sven Påhlman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medicine; Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma; Apoptosis; Cre recombinase; 2-Methoxyestradiol; Transforming growth factor-β; Transgenic mouse; Tumor-associated macrophages; Tumor interstitial fluid pressure; Medicin;

    Abstract : Molecular mechanisms in the development and progression of thyroid carcinomas are still not fully understood. In the present thesis the highly malignant anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) was used to study regulation of apoptosis and tumor interstitial fluid pressure (IFP). READ MORE

  4. 14. Mechanisms of Sensitization to Apoptosis in Multiple Myeloma

    Author : Anna Hammarberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Federico Caligaris-Cappio; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Pathology; multiple myeloma; apoptosis; IGF-1; mTOR; IAP; GSK3; rapamycin; PPP; dexamethasone; CT99021; Patologi;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematological tumor of plasma blast/plasma cell origin heterogeneous with respect to the morphological differentiation stage of the tumor cells, genetic alterations and course of disease. A challenge in MM research is to overcome resistance to therapy, which inevitably arises. READ MORE

  5. 15. Regulation of UV induced apoptosis in human melanocytes

    Author : Cecilia Bivik; Inger Rosdahl; Karin Öllinger; Maria Shoshan; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Malignant melanoma arises from the pigment producing melanocytes in epidermis and is the most aggressive type of skin cancer. The incidence of malignant melanoma is increasing faster than any other type of cancer in white population worldwide, with a doubling rate every 10-20 years. READ MORE
