Sammanfattning : Embryonic stem (ES) cells provide an unlimited source of cells potentially useful for regenerative medicine, however, prior to clinical implementation, additional basic research is needed. This thesis is focused upon different molecular aspects regarding ES cells, primarily by finding novel stem cell protein-protein interactions and their functions. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common form of acute leukemia and generally associated with a poor prognosis. For both children and adults, the treatment is based on chemotherapy. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (alloHCT) is reserved for patients with intermediate or high risk of relapse, due to its associated risks. LÄS MER
3. Molecular mechanisms of embryonic stem cell pluripotency: transcription, telomere maintenance and proliferation
Sammanfattning : Somatic cell nuclear transfer and generation of induced pluripotent stem cells provide potential routes towards generation of patient specific embryonic stem (ES) cells. These procedures require induction of Oct4 gene expression, high telomerase activity and specific cell proliferation, characteristics shared with cancer stem cells. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Leukemia results from uncontrolled growth of genetically altered blood cells. Depending on the cell type of origin, the leukemia is defined as T-cell, B-cell, or myeloid and as acute or chronic depending on its characteristics. However, patients with a certain subtype of leukemia (e.g. LÄS MER
5. Measurable residual disease and clonal evolution in acute myeloid leukemia with focus on NPM1-mutations
Sammanfattning : Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common form of acute leukemia in adults, with mutations in the NPM1 gene occurring in almost one third of all cases. The ability to detect residual leukemia below the resolution of conventional microscopy is crucial for evaluation of relapse risk after therapy. LÄS MER
