Interactions between Fusobacterium nucleatum and Primary Human Oral Cells: In Vitro Studies in Monolayer and Organotypic Culture Models
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-21)
F. nucleatum is a Gram-negative bacterium, member of normal flora in the oral cavity, which has a major role in the formation of the subgingival biofilm. The adhesins expressed on the cell wall outer membrane confer F. ...
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 ...
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 ...

Expression of the "stem cell marker" CD133 in pancreas and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas
(BioMed Central, 2008-02-08)
Background It has been suggested that a small population of cells with unique self-renewal properties and malignant potential exists in solid tumors. Such "cancer stem cells" have been isolated by flow cytometry, followed ...
