  1. 1. On the role of the fusion protein DEK-NUP214 in leukemogenesis

    Author : Malin Ageberg; Avdelningen för hematologi och transfusionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mRNA translation; Medicin människa och djur ; fusion gene; Medicine human and vertebrates ; leukemia;

    Abstract : The t(6;9) translocation is found in a subset of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and is associated with a poor prognosis. The translocation results in the formation of the DEK-NUP214 fusion protein containing almost the entire nuclear protein DEK and two thirds of the nucleoporin NUP214. READ MORE

  2. 2. Coagulase-negative staphylococci in hematological malignancy

    Author : Erik Ahlstrand; Bo Söderquist; Ulf Tidefelt; Karlis Pauksens; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coagulase-negative staphylococci; hematological malignancy; Staphylococcus epidermidis; healthcare-associated infection; antibiotic susceptibility; molecular epidemiology; bloddstream infection; bacteremia; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : Bacterial infections are common in hematological malignancy. Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) are among the most prevalent causes of bacteremia in patients with hematological malignancies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Gene Therapy of Osteopetrosis

    Author : Maria Askmyr; Avdelningen för molekylärmedicin och genterapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; extracellular fluids; Haematology; oc oc mice; osteoclast; hematopoietic stem cells; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor;

    Abstract : The goal in this thesis is development of gene therapy for malignant infantile osteopetrosis (IMO), a rare but severe genetic bone disease. The concept of osteopetrosis implies dysfunction or lack of osteoclasts, the bone resorbing cells in our body, resulting in failure of normal bone breakdown. READ MORE

  4. 4. Registry-Based Studies in Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in Sweden : Survival and Quality of Life

    Author : Emma Bergfelt Lennmyr; Helene Hallböök; Martin Höglund; Jan Maxwell Nørgaard; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia; Philadelphia Chromosome; Overall Survival; Population-based; Quality Registry; Relapse; Patient-Reported Outcome; Health-Related Quality of Life; Depression;

    Abstract : Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a common child malignancy, also constitutes a minor fraction of adult cancer with approximately 50 new cases per year in Sweden. While the five-year overall survival (OS) in pediatric ALL is more than 90%, the prognosis in adults is dismal. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the role of the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor gene in hematopoietic differentiation

    Author : Gösta Bergh; Helsingborg Kliniska Vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antisense; leukemia; cell cycle; differentiation; hematopoiesis; p16; p53; tumor suppressor genes; RB; oligonucleotides; Haematology; extracellular fluids; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to investigate the role of some tumor suppressor gene products (with emphasis on the retinoblastoma suppressor gene product) in the regulation of differentiation and proliferation in leukemic and normal hematopoietic cells. For this purpose, the expression of the tumor suppressor genes RB, p53 and p16 were artificially altered. READ MORE
