Sammanfattning : Abstract Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide. Deregulation of Wnt/β-catenin signalling pathway is an early hallmark of colon cancer. Were nuclear accumulation of β-catenin is a marker of activated canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling. One of the risk factors for development of colon cancer is inflammatory bowel disease. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Type 2 diabetes mellitus is connected with elevated plasma glucose levels which negatively influence β-cells and cause impaired glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS). The aim of present thesis was to investigate the impact of long-term hyperglycemia on the pancreatic islet β-cell function. LÄS MER
3. Aseptic Loosening of Orthopedic Implants : Osteoclastogenesis Regulation and Potential Therapeutics
Sammanfattning : Aseptic loosening is the main cause of failure of orthopedic prostheses. With no pharmaceuticals to prevent or mitigate periprosthetic bone degradation, a surgery to replace the loose implant with a new one is the only choice to restore patients’ function. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Innervation of bone influence bone modeling, growth and remodeling. Pro-inflammatory cytokines released after tissue trauma are recognized as neurotrophic factors as well as factors influencing bone formation. The Wnt signaling pathway, essential for cell migration during embryogenesis is found to influence bone formation during fracture healing. LÄS MER
5. The Regulation of Growth and Survival in Human Multiple Myeloma Cells by IGF-I Receptor Signaling
Sammanfattning : Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable B-cell malignancy mainly localized to the bone marrow. Our aim was to examine the growth- and survival-promoting role of the IGF-IR and its downstream signaling components in MM cells to identify potential targets for therapy. LÄS MER
