(The University of Bergen, 2012-02-22)
Detection and molecular characterization of herpes simplex virus from Tanzania and Norway
(The University of Bergen, 2006-12-22)
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 ...
Benefit from B-Lymphocyte Depletion Using the Anti- CD20 Antibody Rituximab in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A Double-Blind and Placebo-Controlled Study
(Public Library of Science, 2011-10-19)
Background: Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a disease of unknown aetiology. Major CFS symptom relief during cancer chemotherapy in a patient with synchronous CFS and lymphoma spurred a pilot study of B-lymphocyte depletion ...
Generation of a stepwise prostate carcinogenesis model. A study of epithelial to mesenchymal transition and malignant transformation of prostate primary epithelial cells
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-29)
Despite progress in recent years, prostate cancer continues to be one of the most prevalent causes of cancer-related mortality and morbidity in men in Western countries. A major clinical challenge of prostate cancer ...
ERG and SIM2 transcription factors in prostate cancer – their role in carcinogenesis and potential clinical utility
(The University of Bergen, 2011-01-27)
Lipocalin 2 expression is associated with aggressive features of endometrial cancer
(BioMed Central, 2012-05-06)
Background: Increased expression of lipocalin 2 (LCN2) has been observed in several cancers. The aim of the present study was to investigate LCN2 in endometrial cancer in relation to clinico-pathologic phenotype, angiogenesis, ...
Secreted proteins and surface markers on tubercle bacilli
(The University of Bergen, 2007-12-12)
Tuberculosis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) is the major cause of mortality and morbidity of over two million people each year. Mapping of proteins exported by the pathogen to the extracellular ...
The activity of pregnancy-associated plasma protein A (PAPP-A) as expressed by immunohistochemistry in atherothrombotic plaques obtained by aspiration thrombectomy in patients presenting with a ST-elevation myocardial infarction: a brief communication
Background The expression of pregnancy-associated plasma protein A (PAPP-A) was identified by immunohistochemistry (IHC) in culprit atherothrombotic plaque specimens harvested from patients admitted with ST-segment elevation ...
Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition of a Primary Prostate Cell Line with Switches of Cell Adhesion Modules but without Malignant Transformation
(Public Library of Science, 2008-10-13)
Background: Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been connected with cancer progression in vivo and the generation of more aggressive cancer cell lines in vitro. EMT has been induced in prostate cancer cell ...
