  1. 1. Molecular Screening for Target Discovery in Cancer

    Författare :Mårten Fryknäs; Anders Isaksson; Ulf Pettersson; Hugh Salter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Genetics; Cancer; Drug resistance; Microarray; High-throughput screening; Genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Cancer is one of the major causes of death in the western world. Resistance to anti-cancer drugs and diagnostic difficulties are major obstacles to successful treatment. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Quiescent cancer cells : Three-dimensional cell models for evaluation of new therapeutics

    Författare :Frida Ek; Mårten Fryknäs; Malin Jarvius; Rolf Larsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cancer; cancer cell quiescence; dormancy; three-dimensional; multicellular tumor spheroids; model development; cancer pharmacology; mitochondria; OXPHOS; colorectal carcinoma; hepatocellular carcinoma; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Sammanfattning : Inadequate metabolic conditions in solid tumors lead to the formation of quiescent cancer cells that are suspended in a transient cell cycle arrest. When conditions change, quiescent cancer cells can re-enter the cell cycle and cause recurrence. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Proteomics informed investigation of human hepatocytes and liver tissue

    Författare :Niklas Handin; Per Artursson; Peter Nygren; Tobias Sjöblom; Mårten Fryknäs; Pieter Annaert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human; liver; hepatocytes; proteomics; cellular stress; apoptosis; hepatotoxicity; 3D culture; spheroid; drug metabolism; drug toxicity; drug transport; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Sammanfattning : A successful drug needs to display beneficial absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity (ADME-Tox) profile. It is therefore important to investigate these properties during the drug discovery process. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Drug Repositioning for Cancer Treatment : Novel Candidate Identification Strategies

    Författare :Madiha Nazir; Mårten Fryknäs; Sigurd Vitols; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :cancer treatment; drug repositioning; Phosphodiesterase 3A PDE3A ; apoptosis; combination screening;

    Sammanfattning : Regardless of the enormous investments in cancer research and drug development, the proportion of approved drugs in oncology is low compared to other indications, and new avenues are needed. One attractive approach in this regard is drug repositioning where new uses outside the scope of the original medical indications for existing drugs are identified. LÄS MER

  5. 5. High-throughput screening using multicellular tumor spheroids to reveal and exploit tumor-specific vulnerabilities

    Författare :Wojciech Senkowski; Mårten Fryknäs; Rolf Larsson; Peter Nygren; Mats Gustafsson; Krister Wennerberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spheroids; high-throughput screening; nitazoxanide; OXPHOS; gene expression profiling; statins; drug repositioning; 3D cell culture; quiescent cells; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : High-throughput drug screening (HTS) in live cells is often a vital part of the preclinical anticancer drug discovery process. So far, two-dimensional (2D) monolayer cell cultures have been the most prevalent model in HTS endeavors. However, 2D cell cultures often fail to recapitulate the complex microenvironments of in vivo tumors. LÄS MER
