  1. 1. Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer's disease : Focus on NF-κB and C/EBP transcription factors

    Author : Veronica Ramberg; Kerstin Iverfeldt; Josep Saura; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : Alzheimer’s disease; neuroinflammation; NF-κB; C EBP; apoptosis; caspases; FRET; neurokemi och neurotoxikologi; Neurochemistry and Neurotoxicology;

    Abstract : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia among elderly. The disease is characterized by amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques, neurofibrillary tangles, loss of synapses and neurons and chronic neuroinflammation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel Interactors of X-linked Inhibitor of Apoptosis Protein : Expression and Effects on Tumor Cell Death

    Author : Håkan Steen; Dan Lindholm; Bertrand Joseph; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Neurobiology; XIAP; tumor cell death; apoptosis; caspases; basic helix-loop-helix protein; Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Programmed cell death, or apoptosis, has during the last decade received a lot of attention due to its involvement in a large number of pathological conditions. Since death is always irreversible, it is important for cells to fully control the initiation and execution of this process. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of neutrophil apoptosis

    Abstract : The human neutrophil is the most abundant granulocyte and the major type of cell involved in an acute inflammatory response. Neutrophils are armed with various systems of enzymes, that can find and kill pathogens, but unfortunately, these "weapons" cannot distinguish between the host tissues and the "invaders. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental radioimmunotherapy and effector mechanisms

    Author : David Eriksson; Torgny Stigbrand; Eva Forsell-Aronsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; radioimmunotherapy; apoptosis; mitotic catastrophe; caspases; cell cycle disturbances; combination treatment.; Immunology; Immunologi;

    Abstract : Radioimmunotherapy is becoming important as a new therapeutic strategy for treatment of tumour diseases. Lately monoclonal antibodies tagged with radionuclides have demonstrated encouraging results in treatment of hematological malignancies. The progress in treatment of solid tumours using radioimmunotherapy, however, has been slow. READ MORE
