  1. 1. Molecular Signatures of Cancer

    Author : Esther Edlundh-Rose; Joakim Lundeberg; Peter Södervist; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; : BRAF; NRAS; MGMT; methylation; pyrosequencing; microarray technology; gene expression analysis; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Cancer is an important public health concern in the western world, responsible for around 25% of all deaths. Although improvements have been made in the diagnosis of cancer, treatment of disseminated disease is inefficient, highlighting the need for new and improved methods of diagnosis and therapy.

  2. 2. Development of molecular techniques for fungal diagnostic research

    Author : Qing-Yin Zeng; Åsa Rasmuson-Lestander; Xiao-Ru Wang; Aino Nevalainen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Fungi; DNA markers; Aerosols; Detection and quantification; Environmental monitoring; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Fungi are present everywhere in indoor and outdoor environments. Many fungi are toxigenic or pathogenic that may cause various public health concerns. Rapid detection, quantification and characterization of fungi in living and working environments are essential for exposure risk assessment to safe guard public health. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bacterial Vaginosis : Diagnosis, Prevalence, and Treatment

    Author : Katarina Eriksson; Per-Göran Larsson; Urban Forsum; Ann-Sofie Adolfsson; Inger Mattsby-Baltzer; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Bacterial vaginosis; prevalence; diagnosis; PAP-smear; probiotic treatment; clindamycin; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by a foul smelling vaginal discharge, loss or reduction of the normal vaginal Lactobacilli, and overgrowth of other anaerobic bacteria. Thus, it presents a formidable problem for clinicians as well as microbiologists researching its etiology, clinical course, treatment, and epidemiology. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular Targets in Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndrome Type1 and Their Clinical Implications

    Author : Mohammad Alimohammadi; Olle Kämpe; Anna Lobell; Fredrik Rorsman; Tommy Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autoimmunity; autoantibodies; endocrinology; parathyroid; hypoparathyroidism; Addison s disease; pulmonary symptoms; NALP; NALP5; NLR; KCNRG; Molecular medicine; Molekylär medicin;

    Abstract : Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. Autoimmunity is known to cause a wide range of disorders, and is suspected to be responsible for many more. Most autoimmune disorders are chronic and cause severe morbidity for the patients, and are also costly for society. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular epidemiology approach : nested case-control studies in glioma and lymphoid malignancies

    Author : Florentin Späth; Beatrice S. Melin; Carl Wibom; Ann Sofie Johansson; Ingvar Bergdahl; Ola Landgren; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Nested case-control studies aim to link molecular markers with a certain outcome. Repeated prediagnostic samples may improve the evaluation of marker-disease associations. However, data regarding the benefit of repeated samples in such studies are sparse. READ MORE
