  1. 1. Gene therapy of neuroblastoma

    Författare :Yvonne Arvidsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroblastoma; gene therapy; PNP; ASK1; MASH1; IL-12; GM-CSF; immunotherapy; apoptosis.;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: The survival of children with advanced stages of neuroblastoma has not improved significantly during recent years. Therefore additional treatments based on other modalities need to be developed. The objective of this thesis was to investigate the possibility to develop gene therapy of neuroblastoma. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Gene Therapy for Neurological Disorders

    Författare :Jan Tönnesen; Lund Neurologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epileptiform activity; striatum; organotypic culture; electrophysiology; Wnt5a; synaptic connectivity.; cell transplantation; hippocampus; neural stem cells; epilepsy; functional integration; Parkinson’s disease; optogenetics; Gene therapy;

    Sammanfattning : Gene therapy is an attractive strategy for neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy, for several reasons. Introduction of genes with a therapeutic potential can be achieved locally, by accurate injections in the compromised tissue, and release of a transgene therapeutic substance can be regulated by the surrounding host neural circuitry.

  3. 3. TARP Promoter-Based Prostate Cancer Gene Therapy : From Development to Application

    Författare :Wing-Shing Cheng; Magnus Essand; Thomas H. Tötterman; Cecilia Lundberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Genetic engineering; TARP; PPT; TSTA; promoter; gene regulation; prostate specificity; hormone- independent; adenovirus; prostate cancer; gene therapy; conditionally replicating adenovirus; Genteknik; Genetic engineering including functional genomics; Genteknik inkl. funktionsgenomik;

    Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer is one leading cause of cancer-related death among men in Western countries. The standard therapies for localized prostate cancer include radical prostatectomy and radiation therapy. Such measures are relatively effective in the short term, but many patients ultimately relapse. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Development of Gene Therapy for Hematopoietic Stem Cells using Lentiviral Vectors

    Sammanfattning : Hematopoietic stem cells are an ideal target for genetic manipulation for the purpose of curing hematological disorders as they have the ability to develop into all blood lineages and to self-renew. In this study we demonstrate that lentiviral vectors, based on HIV-1, can efficiently transfer genes into human hematopoietic progenitor and stem cells as assessed following stem cell transplantation in immune compromised mice.
