    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

  2. 2. IKAROS and LEUKEMIA

    Författare :Linda Olsson; Avdelningen för klinisk genetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia; relapse; risk-stratifying factors; IKZF1; cooperative changes;

    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

  3. 3. DNA methylation as a prognostic marker i acute lymphoblastic leukemia

    Författare :Magnus Borssén; Sofie Degerman; Kim Vettenranta; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA methylation; acute lymphoblastic leukemia; T-ALL; Relapse; Telomere length; patologi; Pathology; Pediatrics; pediatrik;

    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

  4. 4. Significance of Wilms’ tumor gene 1 as a biomarker in acute leukemia and solid tumors

    Författare :Charlotta Andersson; Eva Lundin; Aihong Li; Andreas Jonsson; Xingru Li; David M. Loeb; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wilms’ tumor gene 1; biomarker; leukemia; renal cell carcinoma; ovarian carcinoma; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi; patologi; Pathology;

    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. 5. Identification and evaluation of novel prognostic genetic markers for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia

    Författare :Ingegerd Ivanov Öfverholm; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    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
