  1. 1. Epidemiological studies on multiple myeloma

    Author : Mikael Eriksson; Lennart Hardell; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; multiple myeloma; epidemiology; farming; domestic animals; phenoxyacetic adds; DDT; rheumatoid arthritis; familial factors;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma is a painful and uncurable malignant disease with an increasing incidence and mortality in several countries, e.g., Sweden. Some factors are suspected to be of aetiological significance, such as ionising radiation and chronic antigenic stimulation in certain inflammatory diseases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Apoptosis Regulation in Multiple Myeloma

    Author : Lina Dimberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Marie Arsenian Henriksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biomedicine; multiple myeloma; apoptosis; survival; IFN; Stat1; Stat3; IGF-I; RTK inhibitor; PPP; IAP; Fas CD95; dexamethasone; Biomedicin;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a virtually incurable B cell malignancy of the bone marrow. One important part of tumor progression and an obstacle for successful therapy is resistance to apoptosis. To combat this resistance, the mechanisms of apoptosis and survival in MM must be better defined. READ MORE

    Abstract : Nowadays epigenetic dysregulation is known to play a crucial role in virtually all cancers. In multiple myeloma (MM), an extensively heterogeneous malignancy, the key common feature among patients is the gene silencing imposed by the PRC2 complex through the addition of H3K27me3. READ MORE
