Hyperoxic Treatment Induces Mesenchymal-to-Epithelial Transition in a Rat Adenocarcinoma Model
(Public Library of Science, 2009-07-28)
Tumor hypoxia is relevant for tumor growth, metabolism and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). We report that hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment induced mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition (MET) in a dimetyl-a-b ...
Biological Characteristics of Stem-Like Cells in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-18)
It has been shown that many solid malignancies, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), contain a small population of tumorigenic cells referred to as cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) or tumor initiating cells (TICs). ...

(The University of Bergen, 2011-08-25)
How participatory is parental consent in low literacy rural settings in low income countries? Lessons learned from a community based study of infants in South India
(BioMed Central, 2011-02-15)
Background A requisite for ethical human subjects research is that participation should be informed and voluntary. Participation during the informed consent process by way of asking questions is an indicator of the extent ...
Treatment-associated polymorphisms in protease are significantly associated with higher viral load and lower CD4 count in newly diagnosed drug-naive HIV-1 infected patients
(BioMed Central, 2012-10-03)
Background: The effect of drug resistance transmission on disease progression in the newly infected patient is not well understood. Major drug resistance mutations severely impair viral fitness in a drug free environment, ...
Functional analysis of tilS homologues in Bacteria and Archaea
(The University of Bergen, 2005-09-09)
Out of all of the microorganisms sequenced so far about one third of the genes have unknown function. Several studies have shown that information on evolutionary relationships between unknown genes can aid in the prediction ...
Histological type and grade of breast cancer tumors by parity, age at birth, and time since birth: a register-based study in Norway
(BioMed Central, 2010-05-21)
Background Some studies have indicated that reproductive factors affect the risk of histological types of breast cancer differently. The long-term protective effect of a childbirth is preceded by a short-term adverse ...
Ectopic germinal center formation in Sjögren’s syndrome: Significance of lymphoid organization
(The University of Bergen, 2006-06-23)
Sjögren’s syndrom (SS) is an autoimmune, chronic inflammatory disorder predominantly affecting the salivary and lacrimal glands. The overall aim of this study was to determine clinicopathological features in human and ...
Proliferation, lymph vessel invasion and histologic type as prognostic factors in lymph node negative breast cancer
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-14)
Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer mortality among women in the western world, second only to lung cancer. Since the mammography screening program in Norway started in 1995, 70% and more of all new breast cancers ...
