  1. 1. Immunomodulatory Therapy of Solid Tumors With a Focus on Monoclonal Antibodies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda Sandin; Thomas Tötterman; Mangsbo Sara; Fredrik Eriksson; Loskog Angelica; Ola Winqvist; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; in situ checkpoint blockade; antibody-mediated tumor immunotherapy; CTLA-4; CD40; monoclonal antibodies; experimental animal model; Fc gamma receptor; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Cancer, historically considered a genetic disease, is currently acknowledged to affect the whole body. Our immune system is one key player that can elicit a response against malignant cells but can also promote tumorigenesis. Tumors avoid immune recognition by creating a suppressive microenvironment and inducing tolerance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Targeted Therapy of Colorectal Cancer Preclinical Evaluation of a Radiolabelled Antibody

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ylva Almqvist; Anders Sundin; Vladimir Tolmachev; Hans Lundqvist; Matthew K Robinson; [2008]
    Keywords : Molecular medicine; tumour targeting; antibody; A33; radionuclide; colorectal cancer; therapy; Molekylärmedicin;

    Abstract : Targeted radiotherapy (TRT) of cancer is a promising approach that enables selective treatment of tumour cells, while sparing normal tissue. The humanized monoclonal antibody A33 (huA33) is a potential targeting agent for TRT of colorectal cancer, since its antigen is expressed in more than 95 % of all colorectal carcinomas. READ MORE

  3. 3. Antibody-Based Radionuclide Targeting for Diagnostics and Therapy Preclinical Studies on Head and Neck Cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marika Nestor; Matti Anniko; Jörgen Carlsson; Hans Lundqvist; Vladimir Tolmachev; Matthew Robinson; [2006]
    Keywords : Otorhinolaryngology; antibodies; radionuclide targeting; tumour targeting; therapy; diagnostics; immuno-PET; head and neck squamous cell carcinoma; Otorhinolaryngologi;

    Abstract : Antibody-based targeting techniques play an increasingly important role in cancer research. By targeting a structure that is abundant in tumour cells, but rare in healthy tissues, an antibody can mediate the delivery of radioactivity specifically to tumour cells in the body. READ MORE

  4. 4. Targeted monoclonal antibody therapy in chronic lymphocytic leukemia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Claes Karlsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is still regarded as an incurable disease with a great need for developing new therapies and optimizing existing treatment options. The development of targeted therapy, i.e. therapy interfering with specific molecules needed for carcinogenesis and tumor growth, is rapidly evolving. READ MORE

  5. 5. Affibody molecules targeting HER3 for cancer therapy

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Tarek Bass; Stefan Ståhl; Christina Furebring; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Affibody molecule; cancer therapy; epidermal growth factor receptors; ErbB3; HER3; protein engineering;

    Abstract : The development of targeted therapy has contributed tremendously to the treatment of patients with cancer. The use of highly specific affinity proteins to target cancer cells has become a standard in treatment strategies for several different cancers. READ MORE
