    • Placental inflammation by HMGB1 activation of TLR4 at the syncytium 

      Tangerås, Line Haugstad; Silva, Gabriela; Stødle, Guro; Gierman, Lobke; Skei, Bente; Collett, Karin; Beversmark, Anne Lise; Skråstad, Ragnhild Bergene; Thomsen, Liv Cecilie Vestrheim; Bjørge, Line; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Introduction Normal pregnancy is characterized by an elevated inflammatory state involving the placenta. The placental inflammation is further increased in preeclampsia, resulting in release of harmful danger signals to ...
    • Preoperative tumor size at MRI predicts deep myometrial invasion, lymph node metastases, and patient outcome in endometrial carcinomas 

      Ytre-Hauge, Sigmund; Husby, Jenny Hild Aase; Magnussen, Inger Johanne; Werner, Henrica Maria Johanna; Salvesen, Øyvind; Bjørge, Line; Trovik, Jone; Stefansson, Ingunn; Salvesen, Helga Birgitte; Haldorsen, Ingfrid S. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore the relation between preoperative tumor size based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the surgical pathologic staging parameters (deep myometrial invasion, cervical ...
    • Refined phenotyping identifies links between preeclampsia and related diseases in a Norwegian preeclampsia family cohort 

      Thomsen, Liv Cecilie Vestrheim; Melton, Philip E.; Tollaksen, Kjersti; Lyslo, Ingvill; Roten, Linda Tømmerdal; Odland, Maria Lisa; Strand, Kristin Melheim; Nygård, Ottar; Sun, Chen; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte; Austgulen, Rigmor; Moses, Eric; Bjørge, Line (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-11)
      Objective: Preeclampsia is a complex genetic disease of pregnancy with a heterogenous presentation, unknown cause and potential severe outcomes for both mother and child. Preeclamptic women have increased risk for ...
    • Tissue and imaging biomarkers for hypoxia predict poor outcome in endometrial cancer 

      Berg, Anna; Fasmer, Kristine Eldevik; Mauland, Karen Klepsland; Ytre-Hauge, Sigmund; Høivik, Erling Andre; Husby, Jenny Hild Aase; Tangen, Ingvild Løberg; Trovik, Jone; Halle, Mari Kyllesø; Woie, Kathrine; Bjørge, Line; Bjørnerud, Atle; Salvesen, Helga; Werner, Henrica Maria Johanna; Krakstad, Camilla; Haldorsen, Ingfrid S. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-09-13)
      Hypoxia is frequent in solid tumors and linked to aggressive phenotypes and therapy resistance. We explored expression patterns of the proposed hypoxia marker HIF-1α in endometrial cancer (EC) and investigate whether ...
    • TLR3 expression by maternal and fetal cells at the maternal-fetal interface in normal and preeclamptic pregnancies 

      Gierman, Lobke; Silva, Gabriela; Pervaiz, Zahra; Rakner, Johanne Johnsen; Mundal, Siv Boon; Thaning, Astrid J.; Nervik, Ingunn; Elschot, Mattijs; Mathew, Seema; Thomsen, Liv Cecilie Vestrheim; Bjørge, Line; Iversen, Ann-Charlotte (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Inflammation and oxidative stress at the maternal‐fetal interface characterize the placental dysfunction that underlies the pregnancy disorder preeclampsia. Specialized fetal trophoblasts directly interact with leukocytes ...
