The expression of the VLA-integrins alpha 2, alpha 3, alpha 5 and alpha 6 was studied immunohistochemically in tissue samples from ductal pancreatic cancer, chronic pancreatitis, normal pancreas and in 8 cell lines of ductal human pancreatic cancer. Furthermore, adhesion assays on purified extracellular matrix (ECM)-compounds were used to define the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The alpha 6-containing integrin was suggested to be involved in the process of tumor invasion and metastasis. Therefore, the aim of the study was to investigate the expression and function of this adhesion receptor in pancreatic carcinoma. METHODS Integrin expression was investigated in pancreatic tissue and tumor cell lines using(More)
Very late activation (VLA) receptors mediate cell adhesion to extracellular matrix, mainly by acting as adhesion receptors to fibronectin, collagen, and laminin as well as to other cells. These interactions not only regulate normal cell-extracellular matrix contact, but also are thought to be involved in metastasis and invasive tumor growth. Using(More)
CONCLUSION Our results indicate that loss of E-cadherin might be associated with a more invasive phenotype in pancreatic cancer. BACKGROUND A reduced expression of the calcium-dependent E-cadherin cell-cell adhesion molecule on tumor cells has been described as an important factor for tumor invasion and metastasis. METHODS Pancreatic tissues (carcinoma,(More)
In the course of a clinical study we examined young men believed to have normal hearing. Volunteers with a positive history for noise deafness were excluded from further study. Normal hearing was verified by pure-tone audiometry if the hearing loss did not exceed 15 dB for each test tone between 250 Hz and 8000 Hz. As this limit is far below normative(More)
In connection with a population-based study on familial and non-familial determinants of serum total cholesterol an interviewer-administered short questionnaire, including 21 food items, and a qualitative fat index based on four questions were developed. Subjects for the validation study, 51 women and 31 men, aged 16-71 years, were selected from the(More)
BACKGROUND The rate of autopsies has dropped to low levels in Western countries. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to describe the experiences and attitudes of registered nurses (RNs) and physicians (MD) toward clinical autopsies in neonatal and adult hospital care in Sweden. METHODS RNs and MDs in neonatal and adult care specialized clinics at a(More)
