Cancer cachexia associates with a systemic autophagy-inducing activity mimicked by cancer cell-derived IL-6 trans-signaling
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
The majority of cancer patients with advanced disease experience weight loss, including loss of lean body mass. Severe weight loss is characteristic for cancer cachexia, a condition that significantly impairs functional ...
DHA-induced stress response in human colon cancer cells - Focus on oxidative stress and autophagy
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are important constituents of the diet and health benefits of omega-3/n−3 PUFAs, especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5 n−3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6 n−3) have been well ...
MRI Reveals the in Vivo Cellular and Vascular Response to BEZ235 in Ovarian Cancer Xenografts with Different PI3-Kinase Pathway Activity
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014-12-23)
Background: The phosphoinositide-3 kinase (PI3K) pathway is an attractive therapeutic target. However, difficulty in predicting therapeutic response limits the clinical implementation of PI3K inhibitors. This study evaluates ...
