Sammanfattning : Aims: The survival of children with advanced stages of neuroblastoma has not improved significantly during recent years. Therefore additional treatments based on other modalities need to be developed. The objective of this thesis was to investigate the possibility to develop gene therapy of neuroblastoma. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Neuroblastoma is a malignant solid tumor of childhood with a poor prognosis. The growth of solid tumors has been shown to be dependent on new blood vessel formation, i.e. angiogenesis. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Over the last decade Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK), a receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) has been identified as a translocation partner in diverse cancer types. In tumors, where the full-length ALK RTK itself is mutated, such as neuroblastoma, the picture is less clear regarding ALKs role as an oncogenic driver. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Abstract Neuroblastoma is a highly malignant neoplasm found in children. Although children with high-risk neuroblastoma respond to chemotherapy, relapses are common and an estimated long-time survival prognosis is approximately 15%. Thus, there is a tremendous need for new chemotherapeutic drugs for the treatment for neuroblastoma. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The results presented here derive from our efforts to find genes and chromosomal regions of interest in the formation and progression of the childhood tumor neuroblastoma.Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood. LÄS MER
