    Sammanfattning : Increased understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer development has shifted drug discovery towards target driven drug development the last decades, but the development of effective cancer drugs has been hampered by the lack of predictive preclinical models. 3-D cultures, considered to more accurately reflect solid tumors in vivo, have been proposed as one way to increase the predictability of clinical efficacy in cancer drug discovery and development.

    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

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Development of therapeutic strategies for quiescent tumor cell populations

    Författare :Xiaonan Zhang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Phenotypic screening is an effective approach to the discovery of small-molecule drugs. In this thesis, I have used cancer cells grown as 3D microtissues (multicellular spheroids) to study the effect of anticancer drugs and as drug discovery tools. LÄS MER
