  1. 1. Using patient-derived cell models to investigate the role of misfolded SOD1 in ALS

    Författare :Elin Forsgren; Jonathan Gilthorpe; Stefan Marklund; Peter Andersen; Thomas Brännström; Ulrika Nordström; Séverine Boillée; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ALS; SOD1; patient-derived models; induced pluripotent stem cells; motor neurons; astrocytes; 20S proteasome low oxygen tension; misfolded SOD1; Neurology; neurologi;

    Sammanfattning : Protein misfolding and aggregation underlie several neurodegenerative proteinopathies including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) was the first gene found to be associated with familial ALS. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Development and application of a patient-derived xenograft platform to test anticancer agents

    Författare :Berglind Einarsdottir; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; malignant melanoma; patient-derived xenografts; MTH1; pre-clinical trial; Karonudib;

    Sammanfattning : Malignant melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer and incidence rates are on the rise. Despite recent improvements in treatment options, the disease still remains lethal. Which calls for expedited solutions. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Novel immunotherapies for metastatic melanoma - from mouse models towards clinical trials

    Författare :Elin Forsberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Metastatic melanoma; uveal melanoma; patient-derived xenograft; immune-humanized mouse model; immunotherapy; adoptive T cell therapy; tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes; chimeric antigen receptor T CAR-T cells;

    Sammanfattning : Immunotherapies including checkpoint blockade and adoptive T cell transfer (ACT) show great promise for the treatment of melanoma, with long-term effects in some patients. However, around half of the patients with metastatic malignant melanoma will not be cured with available therapies today, and these patients require other treatment strategies. LÄS MER

  5. 5. SOD1 misfolding and aggregation in ALS : in the light of conformation-specific antibodies

    Författare :Manuela Lehmann; Jonathan D. Gilthorpe; Stefan L. Marklund; Thomas Brännström; Ulrika Nordström; Elizabeth Fisher; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ALS; antibodies; SOD1; disordered SOD1; patient-derived models; low oxygen tension; Immunotherapy;

    Sammanfattning : Mutations in the superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) gene are linked to the progressive neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS-associated mutations affect the stability of the SOD1 protein and promote its unfolding. As a consequence, disordered SOD1 species can misfold and accumulate into insoluble aggregates. LÄS MER
