  1. 1. Examining the prostate stroma and vasculature : importance and potential as targets for therapy

    Författare :Anna Johansson; Anders Bergh; Arne Östman; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; castration therapy; vasculature; stroma; the angiopoietins; the PDGF-receptors; mast cells; Pathology; Patologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background. Recent studies in cancer research have focused on the reciprocal interaction between cancer cells and their microenvironment. Tumour growth is angiogenesis dependent and the rate of angiogenesis correlates with a poor prognosis in many different cancers. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Inhibition of PDGF receptor signaling in tumor stroma : Effects on interstitial hypertension, drug uptake and therapeutic response

    Författare :Kristian Pietras; Sven Påhlman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; PDGF; tumor; stroma; tyrosine kinase inhibitor; combination therapy; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Sammanfattning : The role of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) in malignancies involves both autocrine and paracrine stimulation of cells within the tumor. The interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) is one of the forces that govern the transvascular flow of fluids. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Tumor Stroma in Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma : Interstitial Collagen and Tumor Interstitial Fluid Pressure

    Författare :Ellen Lammerts; Lucio Nitsch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Collagen I synthesis; Fibrosis; Tumor - stroma interactions; PDGF; TGF-β; Inhibitor; Cell cycle; Tumor growth; Hyaluronan; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Medical Biochemistry; medicinsk biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is an aggressive malignancy in man with stromal fibrosis as one of the main features. Carcinoma cells synthesized no or little collagen I protein. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Early effects of castration therapy in non-malignant and malignant prostate tissue

    Författare :Nina Ohlson; Pernilla Wikström; Anders Bergh; Pär Stattin; Marja Nevalainen; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; human biopsies; androgen ablation; stroma; epithelium; micro-dissection; PSA; IGF-1; IGF-R1; AR; Pathology; Patologi;

    Sammanfattning : Early Effects of Castration Therapy in Non-malignant and Malignant Prostate Tissue BACKGROUND. Androgen ablation, the standard treatment for advanced prostate cancer, results in increased apoptosis, decreased cell proliferation and subsequent involution of the prostate gland. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Molecular Regulation of Inflammation and Angiogenesis in the Tumor Microenvironment

    Författare :Lothar Dieterich; Anna Dimberg; Lena Claesson-Welsh; Jonas Fuxe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroma; glioma; alphaB-crystallin; HSPB5; cryab; myeloid cells; Morphology; cell biology; pathology; Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Tumor growth and progression not only depend on properties of the malignant cells but are strongly influenced by the tumor microenvironment. The tumor stroma consists of various cell types such as inflammatory cells, endothelial cells and fibroblasts, which can either inhibit or promote tumor growth. LÄS MER
