Sammanfattning : Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive, treatment-resistant tumour. Cisplatin (cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II)) is the best single-agent chemotherapy for MPM, but platinum-based combination therapies give the best overall response rates. However, cisplatin use is limited by resistance and severe side effects. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background Cisplatin is used for treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) but treatment with cisplatin often leads to acquired resistance to cisplatin, resulting in poor patient survival. Globotriaosylceramide (Gb3) and multidrug resistance protein 1 (MDR1) have been associated with cisplatin resistance. LÄS MER
3. The role of the mitochondrial membrane system in apoptosis : the influence of oxidative stress on membranes and their interactions with apoptosis-regulating Bcl-2 proteins
Sammanfattning : Apoptosis is a crucial process in multicellular organisms in sculpting them, especially during embryogenesis. In addition, apoptosis is responsible for the clearance of harmful or damaged cells which can otherwise be detrimental to the organism. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mature mast cells reside in the tissue as heavily granulated cells possessing a regulatory function in innate and adaptive immunity against pathogens, but also detrimentally in atopic, as well as, chronic inflammation-associated diseases such as allergic reactions and autoimmunity. Upon stimulation, mast cells release a vast variety of mediators that recruit and stimulate other immune cells, induce vasodilation and angiogenesis, and process and degrade proteins. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mast cells are long-lived effector cells of the immune system perhaps best known for their involvement in allergic diseases. There are several acute and chronic inflammations where mast cell accumulation, activation and release of mediators are important for the initiation and perpetuation of the inflammation. LÄS MER
