• Nephronectin in breast cancer progression and metastasis 

      Toraskar, Jimita Prashant (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:390, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
      Breast cancer is life threatening due to its ability to spread and invade other tissues. The best approach in solving a problem of this sort is to be able to reason backwards. Tumors appear chaotic as they are composed of ...
    • Neural signaling modulates metabolism of gastric cancer 

      Rabben, Hanne-Line; Andersen, Gøran Troseth; Olsen, Magnus Kringstad; Øverby, Anders; Ianevski, Aleksandr; Kainov, Denis; Wang, Timothy Cragin; Lundgren, Steinar; Grønbech, Jon Erik; Chen, Duan; Zhao, Chun-Mei (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Tumors comprise cancer cells and the associated stromal and immune/inflammatory cells, i.e., tumor microenvironment (TME). Here, we identify a metabolic signature of human and mouse model of gastric cancer and show that ...
    • Olaparib monotherapy as primary treatment in unselected triple negative breast cancer 

      Eikesdal, Hans Petter; Yndestad, Synnøve; Elzawahry, Asmaa; Llop-Guevara, Alba; Gilje, Bjørnar; Blix, Egil Støre; Espelid, Helge; Lundgren, Steinar; Geisler, Jürgen; Vagstad, Geirfinn; Venizelos, Andreas; Minsaas, Laura; Leirvaag, Beryl; Gudlaugsson, Einar; Vintermyr, Olav Karsten; Aase, Hildegunn Siv; Aas, Turid; Balmaña, Judith; Serra, Violeta; Janssen, Emiel; Knappskog, Stian; Lønning, Per Eystein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Background The antitumor efficacy of PARP inhibitors (PARPi) for breast cancer patients harboring germline BRCA1/2 (gBRCA1/2) mutations is well established. While PARPi monotherapy was ineffective in patients with metastatic ...
    • Persistence of disseminated tumor cells after neoadjuvant treatment for locally advanced breast cancer predicts poor survival 

      Mathiesen, Randi Margit Ruud; Borgen, Elin; Renolen, Anne; Løkkevik, Erik; Nesland, Jahn M; Anker, Gun Birgitta; Østenstad, Bjørn; Lundgren, Steinar; Risberg, Terje; Mjaaland, Ingvil; Kvalheim, Gunnar; Lønning, Per Eystein; Naume, Bjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Introduction Presence of disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) in bone marrow (BM) and circulating tumor cells (CTC) in peripheral blood (PB) predicts reduced survival in early breast cancer. The aim of this study was to determine ...
    • Physical Activity in Long-term Breast Cancer Survivors - a Mixed-Methods Approach 

      Stalsberg, Ragna; Eikemo, Terje Andreas; Lundgren, Steinar; Reidunsdatter, Randi Johansen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Objectives: Traditional methods measuring physical activity (PA) may misrepresent breast cancer survivors (BCSs) and low-socio-economic status (SES) groups. This study identifies PA-levels, routines and experiences among ...
    • Predictive and Prognostic Impact of TP53 Mutations and MDM2 Promoter Genotype in Primary Breast Cancer Patients Treated with Epirubicin or Paclitaxel 

      Chrisanthar, Ranjan; Knappskog, Stian; Løkkevik, Erik; Anker, Gun Birgitta; Østenstad, Bjørn; Lundgren, Steinar; Risberg, Terje; Mjaaland, Ingvil; Skjønsberg, Gudbrand; Aas, Turid; Schlichting, Ellen; Fjøsne, Hans Erikssønn; Nysted, Arne; Lillehaug, Johan R.; Lønning, Per Eystein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
    • Prognostic value of metabolic response in breast cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy 

      Cao, Maria Dung; Giskeødegård, Guro F.; Bathen, Tone Frost; Sitter, Beathe; Bofin, Anna M.; Lønning, Per Eystein; Lundgren, Steinar; Gribbestad, Ingrid S (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Background Today's clinical diagnostic tools are insufficient for giving accurate prognosis to breast cancer patients. The aim of our study was to examine the tumor metabolic changes in patients with locally advanced breast ...
    • Semi-automatic segmentation from intrinsically-registered 18F-FDG-PET/MRI for treatment response assessment in a breast cancer cohort: comparison to manual DCE-MRI 

      Andreassen, Maren Marie Sjaastad; Goa, Pål Erik; Sjøbakk, Torill Eidhammer; Hedayati, Roja; Eikesdal, Hans Petter; Deng, Callie; Østlie, Agnes; Lundgren, Steinar; Bathen, Tone Frost; Jerome, Neil Peter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Objectives To investigate the reliability of simultaneous positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI)-derived biomarkers using semi-automated Gaussian mixture model (GMM) segmentation on PET ...
    • The longitudinal transcriptional response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy with and without bevacizumab in breast cancer 

      Silwal-Pandit, Laxmi; Nord, Silje; Gythfeldt, Hedda; Møller, Elen Kristine; Fleischer, Thomas; Rødland, Einar Andreas; Krohn, Marit; Borgen, Elin; Garred, Øystein; Olsen, Tone; Vu, Phuong Ngoc Thi; Skjerven, Helle; Fangberget, Anne; Holmen, Marit Muri; Schlichting, Ellen; Wille, Elisabeth; Stokke, Mette Norberg; Vollan, Hans Kristian Moen; Kristensen, Vessela N.; Langerød, Anita; Lundgren, Steinar; Wist, Erik; Naume, Bjørn; Lingjærde, Ole Christian; Børresen-Dale, Anne-Lise; Engebråten, Olav (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Purpose: Chemotherapy-induced alterations to gene expression are due to transcriptional reprogramming of tumor cells or subclonal adaptations to treatment. The effect on whole-transcriptome mRNA expression was investigated ...
