  1. 1. Precision medicine and targeted therapy : Turning the tables on cancer

    Author : Anja Mortensen; Marika Nestor; Gregory Adams; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : p53 cancers; PM2; radiosensitization; radio-immunotherapy; MDM2 X inhibition; combination therapy; targeted radionuclide therapy; CD44v6; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : An extended understanding of the molecular characteristics of cancer has led to a revolution within the field of precision medicine. This thesis explores the utilization of two targets for precision medicine, namely, CD44v6 and murine double-minute 2 and X (MDM2/X). READ MORE

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

    Author : Ylva Almqvist; Anders Sundin; Vladimir Tolmachev; Hans Lundqvist; Matthew K Robinson; Uppsala universitet; []
    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. Occupational therapy practice for clients with cognitive impairments following aquired brain injury : occupational therapists' perspective

    Author : Kajsa Lidström Holmqvist; Ann-Britt Ivarsson; Kitty Kamwendo; Marie Holmefur; Margareta Lilja; Örebro universitet; []

    Abstract : Molecular recognition, or the specific interactions between a protein and its ligand, is central to biology and a key factor for many different clinical and technical applications. Despite antibodies being only one of many different affinity proteins, it has by far been the most successful. READ MORE

  5. 5. Targeted Inhibition of Polycomb Repressive Complexes in Multiple Myeloma : Implications for Biology and Therapy

    Author : Mohammad Alzrigat; Helena Jernberg-Wiklund; Fredrik Öberg; Kristina Drott; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematological malignancy of antibody producing plasmablasts/plasma cells. MM is characterized by extensive genetic and clonal heterogeneity, which have hampered the attempts to identify a common underlying mechanism for disease establishment and development of appropriate treatment regimes.
