pRb2/p130 protein expression and RBL2 mutation analysis in Burkitt lymphoma from Uganda
(BioMed Central, 2009-08-19)
Background: The members of the retinoblastoma protein family, pRb, p107 and pRb2 (p130), are central players in controlling the cell cycle. Whereas disturbed function of pRb is commonly seen in human cancers, it is still ...
Molecular markers in breast carcinoma. A study with focus on molecular phenotypes, angiogenesis and stem cells in an African population

Gene signatures and prognostic factors in endometrial cancer. A study with special focus on vascular invasion
(The University of Bergen, 2011-04-15)
Influence of oral mucosal lesions and oral symptoms on oral health related quality of life in dermatological patients: a cross sectional study in Sudan
<p><strong>Background:</strong> 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 ...
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 ...
Burkitt Lymphoma in Uganda. A study of some biological and epidemiological aspects of endemic Burkitt lymphoma
(The University of Bergen, 2011-08-25)
Diagnostic validity of fatal cerebral strokes and coronary deaths
Mortality statistics represent important endpoints in epidemiological studies. The diagnostic validity of cerebral stroke and ischemic heart disease recorded as the underlying cause of death in Norwegian mortality statistics ...
Serodiagnosis of tuberculous lymphadenitis using a combination of antigens
(Open Learning on Enteric Pathogens, 2010)
<p>Background: The diagnosis of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) by conventional methods such as culture and microscopy has low sensitivity and requires an invasive procedure. A simple rapid serological test would be ...
Normal and malignant epithelial cells with stem-like properties have an extended G2 cell cycle phase that is associated with apoptotic resistance
(BioMed Central, 2010-04-28)
Background Subsets of cells with stem-like properties have been previously isolated from human epithelial cancers and their resistance to apoptosis-inducing stimuli has been related to carcinoma recurrence and treatment ...
Expression Profiling of Major Histocompatibility and Natural Killer Complex Genes Reveals Candidates for Controlling Risk of Graft versus Host Disease
(Public Library of Science, 2011-01-28)
Background: The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is the most important genomic region that contributes to the risk of graft versus host disease (GVHD) after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Matching of MHC ...
