” Psoriasis is the most common chronic inflammatory skin disease in adults, affecting 2-3% of the population. Psoriasis has a significant impact on patients’ quality of lfe and is now considered as a sytemic disease with significant comorbidities. Our group’s main scientific focus is to explore the role of non-coding regulatory RNAs, including miRNAs and long […] ”

MicroRNA and wound healing - Xu Landén

Ning Xu Landén

Ning Xu Landén
MD, PhD

” Both chronic non-healing wounds and psoriasis are major and rising health and economic burdens worldwide and lack of effective treatment. Investigation of the role of regulatory RNAs, for example microRNA and long non-coding RNAs, represents an emerging concept, and constitutes a promising area for pharmaceutical intervention. The goal of our laboratory is to unravel the […] ”

” 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 […] ”

” The skin is a large and fascinating organ and a visible stage for most biological processes. The main focus of our research is Psoriasis, a common and complex inflammatory skin disease with significant co-morbidities. The genetic basis for psoriasis is strong and yet unclear. Clinical heterogeneity indicates that different subtypes have distinct genetic background and […] ”

” Mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum in wound healing and rare skin conditions Chronic leg ulcers cause great suffering in the elderly and consume 2 % of the health budget; yet the wound healing process is incompletely understood and today´s treatments are often inadequate. Mitochondria produce 90 % of the cell’s ATP, which is essential for most […] ”

Andor Pivarcsi
Senior researcher

” Skin cancer (excluding malignant melanoma and basal cell carcinoma) are the second most comon cancers among men and women in Sweden. Skin cancer is also the fastest growing cancer type, its incidence has nearly doubled in the last ten years. Cumulative exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun is the major risk factor and ultimate […] ”

MicroRNA and wound healing - Xu Landén

Ning Xu Landén

Ning Xu Landén
MD, PhD

” Research profile  microRNAs (miRNAs) are ~22 nt noncoding RNAs that can bind to the 3 untranslated region (UTR) of the target messenger RNA (mRNA) and result in translational repression or degradation of mRNA. They are proposed to regulate ~60% of all protein-coding genes in humans. Deregulation of miRNA expression has been shown to contribute many […] ”

Liv Eidsmo
MD, PhD

” Psoriasis is a T cell driven inflammatory disease of primarily the skin that affects 2-3 % of the Swedish population. Effective treatment suppresses the chronic inflammation but cure is currently not feasible. Psoriasis often return in the same areas of the skin and it seems that resolved skin contains a hidden disease memory. We aim […] ”
