Sammanfattning : Gliomas are diffuse astrocytic tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) which usually affect adults. This thesis work has focused on molecular mechanisms of altered growth control in glioma, and the significance of two gene products belonging to pathways commonly affected in glioma, p16INK4a and PDGF-B, has been investigated in vitro and in vivo.

Sammanfattning : Malignant glioma is a highly lethal and destructive disease with no proper cure. We have investigated some of the hallmarks of cancer in connection to glioma and found ways to disrupt these and prevent tumor growth. The work is done within the context of a glioma subtype distinguished by activation of PDGF signaling termed the proneural subtype. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Medulloblastoma is the most common malignant pediatric brain tumor and is molecularly divided into four subgroups – WNT, SHH, Group 3 and Group 4. Two thirds of medulloblastoma patients survive, but survivors often suffer from severe, lifelong side-effects. The MYCN oncogene is deregulated in many medulloblastoma patients. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The malignant primary brain tumor glioblastoma has a dismal prognosis and is distinguished by its heterogeneous character. Current treatment with surgical resection, radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy with the alkylating agent temozolomide does not provide a cure, but simply prolongs survival by a few months. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Glioma is the most frequent primary tumor of the central nervous system. By using the RCAS/tv-a mouse glioma model, we have studied mechanisms controlling glioma development and the effect of cell of origin on these processes.SOX5 was identified as a brain tumor locus in a retroviral insertional mutagenesis screen of PDGF-B induced mouse gliomas.
