    Abstract : Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most frequently diagnosed type of acute leukemia in adults. It commonly affects people aged 60 or older, as incidence increases with age, and it is characterized by the accumulation of immature hematopoietic progenitor cells in the bone marrow. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring Cancer Drugs In Vitro and In Vivo : With Special Reference to Chemosensitivity Testing and Early Clinical Development

    Author : Anne von Heideman; Peter Nygren; Bengt Tholander; Rolf Larsson; Seija Grénman; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to investigate the utility of in vitro drug sensitivity testing to optimize the use of cancer chemotherapy and to assess the properties of a new cancer drug in a phase I clinical trial. Tumour cells from patients were analysed with the short-term Fluorometric Microculture Cytotoxicity Assay (FMCA). READ MORE

  4. 4. Antimicrobial peptides in the treatment of infectious and inflammatory conditions : Preclinical studies of mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety

    Author : Camilla Björn; RISE; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    Abstract : The rapid emergence of antibiotic-resistant microbes worldwide and the urgent need of new antimicrobial agents have stimulated interest in antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) as new therapeutics for treatment of infectious diseases. AMPs are present in all living species and constitute an important part of the innate immune system in multicellular organisms, including humans. READ MORE
