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 ...
Experimental studies on the immune response to Ehrlich's ascites carcinoma
(The University of Bergen, 1964-05-13)
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 ...
Tracing the HIV-1 subtype B mobility in Europe: a phylogeographic approach
(BioMed Central, 2009-05-20)
Background: The prevalence and the origin of HIV-1 subtype B, the most prevalent circulating clade among the long-term residents in Europe, have been studied extensively. However the spatial diffusion of the epidemic from ...
Oral mucosal lesions in skin diseased patients attending a dermatologic clinic: a cross-sectional study in Sudan
(BioMed Central, 2011-09-19)
Background: So far there have been no studies focusing on the prevalence of a wide spectrum of oral mucosal lesions (OML) in patients with dermatologic diseases. This is noteworthy as skin lesions are strongly associated ...
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, ...
Gastric adenocarcinoma: aspects of development and progression in high- and low-risk countries
(The University of Bergen, 2010-03-25)
Tumor necrosis is associated with increased alphav beta3 integrin expression and poor prognosis in nodular cutaneous melanomas
(BioMed Central, 2008-12-05)
Background: Tumor necrosis and apoptotic activity are considered important in cancer progression, but these features have not been much studied in melanomas. Our hypothesis was that rapid growth in cutaneous melanomas of ...
Molecular markers in breast carcinoma. A study with focus on molecular phenotypes, angiogenesis and stem cells in an African population
