  • Dynamic contrast enhanced MRI detects early response to adoptive NK cellular immunotherapy targeting the NG2 proteoglycan in a rat model of glioblastoma 

    Brekke, Cecilie; Wang, Jian; Thuen, Marte; Gras Navarro, Andrea; Huuse-Røneid, Else Marie; Thorsen, Frits Alan; Poli, Aurélie; Zimmer, Jacques; Haraldseth, Olav; Lie, Stein Atle; Enger, Per Øyvind; Chekenya, Martha (Public Library of Science, 2014-09-30)
    There are currently no established radiological parameters that predict response to immunotherapy. We hypothesised that multiparametric, longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of physiological parameters and ...

  • Gamma knife surgery as monotherapy with clinically relevant doses prolongs survival in a Human GBM Xenograft Model 

    Skeie, Bente Sandvei; Wang, Jian; Dodoo, Ernest; Heggdal, Jan Ingemann; Grønli, Janne; Sleire, Linda; Bragstad, Sidsel Marit; Ganz, Jeremy Christopher; Chekenya, Martha; Mørk, Sverre; Pedersen, Paal-Henning; Enger, Per Øyvind (Hindawi, 2013)
    Object. Gamma knife surgery (GKS) may be used for recurring glioblastomas (GBMs). However, patients have then usually undergone multimodal treatment, which makes it difficult to specifically validate GKS independent of ...

  • Gene expression in tumor cells and stroma in dsRed 4T1 tumors in eGFP-expressing mice with and without enhanced oxygenation 

    Moen, Ingrid; Jevne, Alison Charlotte; Wang, Jian; Kalland, Karl-Henning; Chekenya, Martha; Akslen, Lars A.; Sleire, Linda; Enger, Per Øyvind; Reed, Rolf K.; Øyan, Anne Margrete; Stuhr, Linda Elin Birkhaug (BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-01-17)
    Background The tumor microenvironment is pivotal in tumor progression. Thus, we aimed to develop a mammary tumor model to elucidate molecular characteristics in the stroma versus the tumor cell compartment by global gene ...

  • Neuronal markers are expressed in human gliomas and NSE knockdown sensitizes glioblastoma cells to radiotherapy and temozolomide 

    Yan, Tao; Skaftnesmo, Kai Ove; Leiss, Lina; Sleire, Linda; Wang, Jian; Li, Xingang; Enger, Per Øyvind (BioMed Central, 2011-12-20)
    Background: Expression of neuronal elements has been identified in various glial tumors, and glioblastomas (GBMs) with neuronal differentiation patterns have reportedly been associated with longer survival. However, the ...

  • A novel GFP nude rat model to investigate tumor-stroma interactions 

    Yang, Ning; Huang, Bin; Tsinkalovsky, Oleg; Brekkå, Narve; Zhu, Huaiyang; Leiss, Lina; Enger, Per Øyvind; Li, Xingang; Wang, Jian (BioMed Central, 2014-12-21)
    Backgroud: A key strategy for the study of the tumor microenvironment is to implant human tumor cells in an immunodeficient rodent strain ubiquitously expressing a fluorescent marker. Here, a novel nude rat expressing a ...
