  1. 1. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma – studies on immunohistochemical and clinical prognostic factors

    Author : Sverker Hasselblom; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : DLBCL; prognosis; sex; population-based; apoptosis; Ki-67; CTLs; TIA-1; FOXP3; bcl-2; GCB; p-AKT;

    Abstract : DLBCL, the most common lymphoma entity, is a potentially curable but heterogeneous disease. Most studies concerning therapy and prognostic factors have been performed on selected patient materials. It is important to identify immunohistochemical biomarkers which could add prognostic information to clinical factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Filamin A in Cardiovascular Remodeling

    Author : Sashidar Bandaru; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Filamin A; Cardiovascular remodelling;

    Abstract : Filamin A (FLNA) is a large actin-binding cytoskeletal protein that stabilizes actin networks and integrates them with cell membranes. FLNA is therefore important for cell motility and organ development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Signalling pathways in renal cell carcinoma with a focus on telomerase regulation

    Author : Raviprakash Tumkur Sitaram; Göran Roos; Anders Bjartell; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein complex that catalyses telomeric repeat addition at the ends of chromosomes. The catalytic subunit, hTERT, acts as a key determinant for telomerase activity control; the induction of hTERT expression is required for telomerase activity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biological signature of HER2-positive breast cancer

    Author : Breezy Malakkaran Lindqvist; Sten Wingren; Torbjörn Nilsson; Ingrid Hedenfalk; Örebro universitet; []

    Abstract : Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) overexpressing breast cancers (HER2+ breast cancer) are associated with an aggressive disease course. This thesis is focused on improving the understanding of the biological signature of HER2+ breast cancer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genomic Profiling, Mutations and Deranged Signaling in Esophageal Cancer and Hereditary Colorectal Cancer

    Author : Anna Isinger Ekstrand; Institutionen för Immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Esophageal cancer; hereditary cancer; HNPCC; copy number analysis; CGH; gene expression; Wnt; PIK3CA; CHEK2; gastric cancer; colorectal cancer;

    Abstract : Esophageal cancer and colorectal cancer represents two major types of gastrointestinal tumors. Though refined surgery and introduction of novel chemotherapeutics have improved outcome, more than 2500 Swedes die from these diseases every year. Novel markers for early diagnosis, prognosis and treatment prediction are therefore needed. READ MORE
