  1. 1. Immunotherapy and immunosuppression in myeloid leukemia

    Author : Alexander Hallner; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Natural killer cells; acute myeloid leukemia; histamine dihydrochloride; immunotherapy; reactive oxygen species; chronic myelomonocytic leukemia; NK cell education; NKG2A; HLA; KIR;

    Abstract : Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) are potentially life-threatening blood cancers characterized by the expansion of malignant myeloid cells in bone marrow and other organs. This thesis aimed at contributing to the understanding of the role of natural killer (NK) cells in AML and CMML with focus on the potential impact of the immunosuppression exerted by reactive oxygen species (ROS) formed by the myeloid cell NOX2 enzyme.

    Abstract : Background Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a relatively rare hematological malignancy with a constant incidence of approximately 90 new cases each year in Sweden (0.9 cases/100 000 inhabitants). The etiology is largely unknown but high doses of ionizing radiation are a known but rare risk factor. READ MORE

  4. 4. Functional Modeling of Genes Upregulated in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    University dissertation from Division of Clinical Genetics, Lund University

    Author : Nils Hansen; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic myeloid leukemia; SOCS2; IL1RAP; BCR ABL1; leukemia models;

    Abstract : Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is caused by the transformation of a primitive hematopoietic cell by the BCR/ABL1 fusion gene that is formed through the chromosomal translocation t(9;22). CML is currently successfully treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors targeting the ABL1 kinase domain. READ MORE
