      Melanoma patients carry a high risk of developing brain metastases, and improvements in survival are still measured in weeks or months. Durable disease control within the brain is impeded by poor drug penetration across ...
    • Metabolic flux analysis of 3D spheroids reveals significant differences in glucose metabolism from matched 2D cultures of colorectal cancer and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma cell lines 

      Tidwell, Tia R.; Røsland, Gro Vatne; Tronstad, Karl Johan; Søreide, Kjetil; Hagland, Hanne Røland (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Background Most in vitro cancer cell experiments have been performed using 2D models. However, 3D spheroid cultures are increasingly favored for being more representative of in vivo tumor conditions. To overcome the ...
