Molecular markers in breast carcinoma. A study with focus on molecular phenotypes, angiogenesis and stem cells in an African population
(The University of Bergen, 2010-09-08)
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). ...
Chemokines are secreted by monocytes following OK-432 (lyophilized Streptococcus pyogenes) stimulation
(BioMed Central, 2009-01-28)
Background: OK-432, penicillin-killed Streptococcus pyogenes, is used in treating lymphangiomas and carcinomas. We have studied in vitro the role of mononuclear phagocytes (MNPs), including purified monocytes (MOs), in the ...
Experimental studies on the immune response to Ehrlich's ascites carcinoma
(The University of Bergen, 1964-05-13)
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 ...
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 ...
The autonomy of different aspects of Sjögren´s syndrome and their treatment in an experimental model: the use of comprehensive biomarker analyses to characterize the disease and the effect of heat-shock proteins in treatment intervention
(The University of Bergen, 2008-06-20)
Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is a systemic rheumatic disease, in which the salivary and lacrimal glands are the principal targets of a pathological autoimmune reaction. Clinically, SS is manifested by keratoconjunctivitis ...
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 ...
Subtyping of breast cancer by immunohistochemistry to investigate a relationship between subtype and short and long term survival: a collaborative analysis of data for 10,159 cases from 12 studies
(Public Library of Science, 2010-05-25)
Background Immunohistochemical markers are often used to classify breast cancer into subtypes that are biologically distinct and behave differently. The aim of this study was to estimate mortality for patients with the ...
Time-dependent clock gene expression in mouse and human stem and progenitor cells
(The University of Bergen, 2007-03-30)
Time is a fundamental part of all biological processes. During the whole process of evolution, living cells and organisms had to adapt to cyclic variations in the environment. In particular, the light and temperature ...
