” CANCER GENETICS We try to understand why patients with apparently identical forms of cancer show different course of the disease. We study chromosome aberrations and gene expression in different types of cancer cells. Studies of the rare recessive Familial Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (FHL) outlines mutations in known disease genes and tries to identify “new” genes for […] ”

”   Families undergoing genetic counseling for an increased risk of cancer and where no disease gene is known are being included in our ongoing studies. We have performed many studies to rule out possible candidate genes. Families without known mutations have been recruited to our linkage and association studies. We have in total identified more […] ”

” In Sweden approximately 4 000 people are annually diagnosed with a hematological cancer. The most common types are lymphomas, leukemia and multiple myeloma. In large population-based studies we have been able to demonstrate that the prognosis has improved in most of these disorders, mainly due to better methods of diagnosis and treatment. However, many patients […] ”

” Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infects and is carried by 70-100% of the world’s population, but rarely gives symptoms in the healthy population. In immunosuppressed patients, such as organ or stem cell transplant patients, AIDS patients and neonates, CMV may cause very serious disease and even death. CMV disease in these groups of patients has also high-lightened the […] ”

” Studies of the importance of Cytomegalovirus infection in breast cancer Recently, Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection has been found in breast cancer. Our research group has recently detected HCMV in most neoplastic cells in sentinel lymph nodes and brain metastases (BMs) of breast cancer. The exact mechanism by which BMs develop is unknown. Several risk factors […] ”

” Our primary interest is the role of microRNAs in the pathogenesis of non-melanoma skin cancers. MiRNAs are short, endogenous RNAs that regulate gene expression at the posttranscriptional level and have critical functions in health and disease. Non-melanoma skin cancers, basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) are the most common cancers in human. […] ”
