  1. 1. Mechanistic Implications and Characterization of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) mutations in Neuroblastoma

    Author : Damini Chand; Bengt Hallberg; Christer Larsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroblastoma; ALK; crizotinib; receptor tyrosine kinase; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) is a receptor tyrosine kinase that was first reported as a fusion partner of nucleophosmin in Anaplastic large cell lymphoma in 1994. ALK is involved in myriad of cancers including neuroblastoma which is the most common extracranial solid tumor affecting young children. READ MORE

  2. 2. Label-free processing of stem cell preparations by acoustophoresis

    Author : Franziska Olm; Avdelningen för molekylär hematologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acoustophoresis; label-free cell separation; ultrasound; microfluidics; stem cell processing; CTC separation;

    Abstract : The first bone marrow transplant in a human was performed in 1959, providing evidence that cells can be used for transplantation and treatment, revealing that healing capacities lie within the human body that ought to be understood. Since then hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has developed as a standard treatment for many cancers besides other malignancies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase mutations and downstream signalling

    Author : Christina Schönherr; Ruth H Palmer; Aristidis Moustakas; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase; oncogene; RTK; neuroblastoma; crizotinib; NVP-TAE684; gain-of-function; MYCN; transcription factor; small GTPase; Rap1; C3G; PC12 cells; neurite outgrowth; molecular cell biology; molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The oncogene Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) is a Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) and was initially discovered as the fusion protein NPM (nucleophosmin)-ALK in a subset of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphomas (ALCL). Since then more fusion proteins have been identified in a variety of cancers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Notch Signaling in Neuroblastoma and Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Author : Jonas Sjölund; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; differentiation; clear cell renal cell carcinoma; neuroblastoma; TGF-beta; migration; γ-secretase; valproic acid; cancer; Notch; ERK; von Hippel-Lindau; hypoxia;

    Abstract : The Notch signaling pathway governs cell functions essential for normal development and organogenesis. Aberrant Notch signaling has been implicated in tumorigenesis by perturbing control of proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, migration and angiogenesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gene therapy of neuroblastoma

    Author : Yvonne Arvidsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroblastoma; gene therapy; PNP; ASK1; MASH1; IL-12; GM-CSF; immunotherapy; apoptosis.;

    Abstract : Aims: The survival of children with advanced stages of neuroblastoma has not improved significantly during recent years. Therefore additional treatments based on other modalities need to be developed. The objective of this thesis was to investigate the possibility to develop gene therapy of neuroblastoma. READ MORE
