1. Gene Therapy with Interferon Alpha and the Angiogenic Inhibitor, Vasostatin, in Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Digestive System
Sammanfattning : IFN-α has been applied in medical treatment of various neuroendocrine (NE) tumors, either alone or combination with somatostatin analogues. They can improve clinical symptoms in 50-70% of patients but a significant tumor reduction is only observed in 5-15% patients. Vasostatin (vaso) is believed to be an angiogenic inhibitor. LÄS MER
2. Regulation of the cytoskeleton and the adhesiveness of intestinal epithelial cells by leukotriene D4
Sammanfattning : Leukotrienes belong to a family of biologically active conjugated trienes that are formed from arachidonic acid via the 5-lipoxygenase pathway and are important mediators of inflammatory reactions. The CysLT1 receptor that specifically serves as receptor for leukotriene D4 (LTD4) has been identified as a G-protein coupled receptor. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : It is unknown whether native cells in benign breast tissue mediate risk of cancer.We therefore aimed to identify cell types in benign human mammary tissueimmunohistologically using markers of stemness and differentiation, and toinvestigate their possible associations with clinical risk factors for breast cancer.

Sammanfattning : Integrins are a large family of membrane-spanning heterodimeric (αβ) receptors that bind to ligands on other cells or to extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. These receptors mediate bidirectional signaling over the cell membrane to induce signaling cascades mediating functions as cell adhesion, spreading and migration. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cutaneous malignant melanoma is an aggressive tumor of melanocytes in the skin with rapidly increasing incidence. Patients with advanced disease have a poor prognosis since the tumor is usually resistant to current therapies. Therefore, the development of novel strategies for preventing and treating melanoma is important. LÄS MER
