Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis can be defined as the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones. Angiogenesis is required for development and maintenance of our vascular system and thus of fundamental importance to our existence. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The mechanisms behind many important aspects of blood- and lymphatic vessel formation have yet not been elucidated in detail. The primary objectives of this thesis have therefore been to study the effects of hypoxia, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) on vascular development and function. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels from preexisting ones, is a process involved in normal development as well as in several pathological conditions, such as cancer, ischemic heart disease, wound healing and certain retinal complications. Antiangiogenic targeting is therefore a promising new therapeutic principle. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Tumor growth is dependent on angiogenesis, and cells in tumor tissues produce various angiogenic factors to induce neovascularization. Among tumor-derived angiogenic factors, members of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family are most frequently and highly expressed in various solid tumors. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer is initially androgen-dependent (AD) and therefore androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is generally used to treat advanced prostate cancer. However, the long-term treatment effects are insufficient and over time an androgen-independent (AI) tumor relapses, which is generally highly aggressive and metastatic. LÄS MER
