    Huguet Ninou, Anna (Inst för onkologi-patologi / Dept of Oncology-Pathology, 2021-06-01)
    Genomic instability in cancer is exploited therapeutically using DNA damaging therapies that cause irreparable lesions above the threshold of tolerable DNA damage levels. Nevertheless, toxic side effects on healthy tissues ...
  • Exploring mTOR-dependent regulation of mRNA translation in cancer 

    Liu, Hui (Inst för onkologi-patologi / Dept of Oncology-Pathology, 2021-06-01)
    Modulation of mRNA translation via the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway is primarily achieved by integrating internal or external signals onto the translation machinery, especially on the rate-limiting initiation ...
  • Atopic dermatitis in adults : epidemiological studies of comorbidity and studies of patients on systemic treatment 

    Ivert, Lina (Inst för medicin, Solna / Dept of Medicine, Solna, 2021-06-01)
    Background: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is one of the most common chronic skin disorders globally. It is an itchy inflammatory skin disease that can have a detrimental impact on health-related quality of life. In recent years, ...
  • Finding synergies for cancer treatment : new ways to modulate DNA damage repair by CX3CR1 and PFKFB3 inhibition 

    Lehto, Jemina (Inst för onkologi-patologi / Dept of Oncology-Pathology, 2021-06-01)
    The goal of targeted cancer therapy is to selectively kill cancer cells based on their molecular survival mechanisms. DNA repair is as a promising cancer target as many cancers have chronic replication stress and deficiencies ...
