    • Gene expression profile of oral squamous cell carcinomas from Sri Lankan betel quid users 

      Lunde, Mai Lill Suhr; Dysvik, Bjarte; Bruland, Ove; Warnakulasuriya, K. A. A. Saman; Amaratunga, Asoka N.; Jonassen, Inge; Vasstrand, Endre N.; Ibrahim, Salah Osman (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2007-11)
      Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is one of the major health problems in Sri Lanka and the disease is associated with the habit of Betel Quid (BQ) chewing. Using 35k oligo microarrays, we analyzed the gene expression ...
    • Inverse correlation between PDGFC expression and lymphocyte infiltration in human papillary thyroid carcinoma 

      Bruland, Ove; Fluge, Øystein; Akslen, Lars A.; Eiken, Hans Geir; Lillehaug, Johan; Varhaug, Jan Erik; Knappskog, Per (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2009-12-08)
      Background: Members of the PDGF family have been suggested as potential biomarkers for papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC). However, it is known that both expression and stimulatory effect of PDGF ligands can be affected ...
    • S100A16 promotes differentiation and contributes to a less aggressive tumor phenotype in oral squamous cell carcinoma 

      Sapkota, Dipak; Bruland, Ove; Parajuli, Himalaya; Osman, Tarig Al-Hadi; Teh, Muy-Teck; Johannessen, Anne Christine; Costea, Daniela Elena (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-09-09)
      Background: Altered expression of S100A16 has been reported in human cancers, but its biological role in tumorigenesis is not fully understood. This study aimed to investigate the clinical significance and functional role ...
