  • Age-dependent association between protein expression of the embryonic stem cell marker Cripto-1 and survival of glioblastoma patients 

    Tysnes, Berit Bølge; Sætran, Hege Aase; Mørk, Sverre; Margaryan, Naira v.; Eide, Geir Egil; Petersen, Kjell; Strizzi, Luigi; Hendrix, J. C. (Elsevier, 2013-12)
    Exploring the re-emergence of embryonic signaling pathways may reveal important information for cancer biology. Nodal is a transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β)-related morphogen that plays a critical role during embryonic ...

  • CDR2 antigen and Yo antibodies 

    Totland, Cecilie; Aarskog, Nina K.; Eichler, Tilo W.; Haugen, Mette; Nøstbakken, Jane K.; Monstad, Sissel E.; Salvesen, Helga B.; Mørk, Sverre; Haukanes, Bjørn Ivar; Vedeler, Christian A. (2011)
    Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) is often associated with Yo antibodies that are directed against human cerebellar degeneration-related protein 2 (CDR2). Such antibodies may also be found in ovarian cancer ...

  • Dietary Vitamin D3 Supplements Reduce Demyelination in the Cuprizone Model 

    Wergeland, Stig; Torkildsen, Øivind; Myhr, Kjell-Morten; Aksnes, Lage; Mørk, Sverre; Bø, Lars (Public Library of Science, 2011-10-20)
    Vitamin D is emerging as a probably important environmental risk factor in multiple sclerosis, affecting both susceptibility and disease progression. It is not known to what extent this effect is due to a modulation of ...

  • 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 ...

  • A reproducible brain tumour model established from human glioblastoma biopsies 

    Wang, Jian; Miletic, Hrvoje; Sakariassen, Per Øystein; Huszthy, Peter Csaba; Jacobsen, Hege; Brekkå, Narve; Li, Xingang; Zhao, Peng; Mørk, Sverre; Chekenya, Martha; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Enger, Per Øyvind (BioMed Central, 2009-12-29)
    Background: Establishing clinically relevant animal models of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) remains a challenge, and many commonly used cell line-based models do not recapitulate the invasive growth patterns of patient ...
