  1. 1. In vitro Studies of β-cell Death and Survival. Modulation by Adenoviral Vectors and Bcl-2 Overexpression

    Författare :Andreea Roxana Barbu; Nils Welsh; Decio Eiziric; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; β-cell; cytokine; mitochondrial membrane potential; Bcl-2; Adenoviral vector; Adenovirus; IFN-α; Diabetes; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Type 1 diabetes is a multifactorial disease resulting from the selective destruction of insulin-producing β-cells within the pancreatic islets of Langerhans. The mechanisms of β-cell death are not fully understood but cytokines are important mediators of this process. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Adenovirus-mediated Gene Therapy of Prostate Cancer

    Författare :Angelika Danielsson; Mangus Essand; Thomas H. Tötterman; Gunnel Hallden; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :adenovirus; adenoviral vector; oncolytic virus; gene therapy; prostate cancer; PEGylation; HDAC inhibitor; whole blood model; whole blood neutralization assay; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Adenovirus-mediated gene therapy is a potential complement to standard cancer treatments. Advantages are that vectors can be used to target tumors and that replicating viruses lead to increased therapeutic dosage. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Allogeneic dendritic cells as adjuvants in cancer immunotherapy

    Författare :Grammatiki Fotaki; Magnus Essand; Alex Karlsson-Parra; Di Yu; Tanja de Gruijl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Allogeneic dendritic cells; immune primer; adjuvant; adenoviral vector; cancer immunotherapy; tumor microenvironment; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : In recent years, immunotherapeutic approaches have achieved remarkable successes through checkpoint blockade antibodies, advances in the use of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells and new insights into the immunosuppressive role of the tumor microenvironment (TME). Through the advances, the role of cancer vaccines based on ex vivo manipulated autologous dendritic cells (DC) has been challenged. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Adenovirus-mediated CD40 Ligand Immunotherapy of Prostate and Bladder Cancer

    Författare :Helena Dzojic; Magnus Essand; Thomas H Tötterman; Aristides Eliopoulos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medicine; immunotherapy; gene therapy; prostate cancer; bladder cancer; adenoviral vector; CD40 ligand; promoter; PPT; TSTA; depsipeptide FK228; TRAMP-C2; Medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Cancer immunotherapy aims at reversing the immunosuppressive tumor environment and enhancing anti-tumor immunity. This thesis comprises studies on murine models for prostate (TRAMP-C2) and bladder (MB49) cancer with the aim to explore if the introduction of an adenoviral vector expressing CD40 ligand (AdCD40L) can induce anti-tumor immune responses.

  5. 5. Cancer Immunotherapy : A Preclinical Study of Urinary Bladder Cancer

    Författare :Christina Ninalga; Thomas Tötterman; Magnus Essand; Timothy Ratliff; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medicine; immunotherapy; bladder carcinoma; cancer; CpG ODNs; Adenoviral vector; CD40L; TRANCE; Lymphotactin; IL2; IL15; Medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Bacillus Calmette Guérin (BCG), or attenuated Mycobacterium bovis, is the gold standard of immunotherapy in the clinic to treat superficial bladder cancer. However, setbacks remain due to a high recurrence rate, side effects, and BCG-refractory disease. LÄS MER
