• C77G in PTPRC (CD45) is no risk allele for ovarian cancer, but associated with less aggressive disease 

      Landskron, Johannes; Kraggerud, Sigrid M.; Wik, Elisabeth; Dørum, Anne; Bjørnslett, Merete Pauline; Melum, Espen; Helland, Øystein; Bjørge, Line; Lothe, Ragnhild A; Salvesen, Helga; Tasken, Kjetil (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-07-31)
      The pan lymphocyte marker CD45 exists in various isoforms arising from alternative splicing of the exons 4, 5 and 6. While naïve T cells express CD45RA translated from an mRNA containing exon 4, exons 4–6 are spliced out ...

      Compound screening in biological assays and subsequent optimization of hits is indispensable for the development of new molecular research tools and drug candidates. To facilitate such discoveries, the European Research ...
    • Immune activation and HIV-specific T cell responses are modulated by a cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor in untreated HIV-infected individuals: An exploratory clinical trial 

      Prebensen, Christian; Trøseid, Marius; Ueland, Thor; Dahm, Anders Erik A; Sandset, Per Morten; Aaberge, Ingeborg Sundsvalen; Waalen, Kristian; Dyrhol-Riise, Anne Ma; Tasken, Kjetil; Kvale, Dag (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-05-02)
      Pathologically elevated immune activation and inflammation contribute to HIV disease progression and immunodeficiency, potentially mediated by elevated levels of prostaglandin E2, which suppress HIV-specific T cell responses. ...
