Gene signatures and prognostic factors in endometrial cancer. A study with special focus on vascular invasion
(The University of Bergen, 2011-04-15)
Molecular markers in breast carcinoma. A study with focus on molecular phenotypes, angiogenesis and stem cells in an African population
(The University of Bergen, 2010-09-08)
Global profiling of histone and DNA methylation reveals epigenetic-based regulation of gene expression during epithelial to mesenchymal transition in prostate cells
(BioMed Central, 2010-11-25)
Background: Previously we reported extensive gene expression reprogramming during epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) of primary prostate cells. Here we investigated the hypothesis that specific histone and DNA ...
Influence of oral mucosal lesions and oral symptoms on oral health related quality of life in dermatological patients: a cross sectional study in Sudan
Background: There are only few studies considering the impact of oral mucosal lesions (OML) on the oral quality of life of patients with different dermatological conditions. This study aimed to assess the relationship ...
Type 1 plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC) and its impact on angiogenesis, progression and patient survival after radical nephrectomy
(BioMed Central, 2010-12-03)
Background To examine the expression of type 1 plasminogen inhibitor (PAI-1) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC), and its possible association with microvessel density (MVD), the expression of thrombospondin-1 ...
Sjögren’s syndrome: studying the disease in mice
(BioMed Central, 2011-06-13)
Sjögren’s syndrome (SS), a systemic autoimmune disease, is characterized by infl ammation of exocrine tissues accompanied by a signifi cant loss of their secretory function. Clinical symptoms develop late and there are ...
Hyperoxic Treatment Induces Mesenchymal-to-Epithelial Transition in a Rat Adenocarcinoma Model
(Public Library of Science, 2009-07-28)
Tumor hypoxia is relevant for tumor growth, metabolism and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). We report that hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment induced mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition (MET) in a dimetyl-a-b ...
Biological Characteristics of Stem-Like Cells in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-18)
It has been shown that many solid malignancies, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), contain a small population of tumorigenic cells referred to as cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) or tumor initiating cells (TICs). ...
Histological type and grade of breast cancer tumors by parity, age at birth, and time since birth: a register-based study in Norway
(BioMed Central, 2010-05-21)
Background Some studies have indicated that reproductive factors affect the risk of histological types of breast cancer differently. The long-term protective effect of a childbirth is preceded by a short-term adverse ...
Birth length and weight as predictors of breast cancer prognosis
(BioMed Central, 2010-03-26)
Background Birth size, and particularly birth length, is positively associated with breast cancer risk in adulthood. The objective of this study was to examine whether birth size is associated with survival among breast ...
