• Enhanced efficacy of bleomycin in bladder cancer cells by photochemical internalization 

      Baglo, Yan; Hagen, Lars; Høgset, Anders; Drabløs, Finn; Otterlei, Marit; Gederaas, Odrun Arna (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Bleomycin is a cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agent widely used in cancer treatment. However, its efficacy in different cancers is low, possibly due to limited cellular internalization. In this study, a novel approach known ...
    • Photochemical internalization of peptide antigens provides a novel strategy to realize therapeutic cancer vaccination 

      Haug, Markus; Brede, Gaute; Håkerud, Monika; Nedberg, Anne Grete; Gederaas, Odrun Arna; Flo, Trude Helen; Edwards, Victoria Tudor; Selbo, Pål Kristian; Høgset, Anders; Halaas, Øyvind (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Effective priming and activation of tumor-specific CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) is crucial for realizing the potential of therapeutic cancer vaccination. This requires cytosolic antigens that feed into the MHC class ...
