1. DNA methylation signatures in precursor lymphoid neoplasms : with focus on clinical implications & the biology behind
Sammanfattning : Precursor lymphoid neoplasms, namely acute lymphoblastic leukemias (ALL) and lymphoblastic lymphomas (LBL), are characterized by an aggressive proliferation of malignant progenitor B- or T-cells. To improve risk classification at diagnosis, better prognostic and treatment stratifying biomarkers are needed. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is characterized by an accumulation of immature lymphoid cells in the bone marrow and is the most common cancer type in children. It is an immunophenotypically, morphologically, clinically, and genetically heterogeneous disorder that comprises several distinct subtypes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood malignancy. Most ALL cases originate from immature B-cells (BCP-ALL) and are characterized by reoccurring structural genetic aberrations. These aberrations hold information of the pathogenesis of ALL and are used for risk stratification in treatment. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Wilms’ tumor gene 1 (WT1) is a zinc finger transcriptional regulator with crucial functions in embryonic development. Originally WT1 was described as a tumor suppressor gene, but later studies have shown oncogenic properties of WT1 in a variety of tumors. Because of its dual functions in tumorigenesis, WT1 has been described as a chameleon gene. LÄS MER
5. Identification and evaluation of novel prognostic genetic markers for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Sammanfattning : Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common form of childhood cancer today. Due to advances in risk stratification and treatment, survival rates have increased drastically the last decades. Currently, children with acute leukemia in the Nordic countries are diagnosed and treated according to the NOPHO-2008 treatment protocol. LÄS MER
