      Braadland, Peder; Giskeødegård, Guro F.; Sandsmark, Elise; Bertilsson, Helena; Euceda, Leslie R.; Hansen, Ailin Falkmo; Guldvik, Ingrid Jenny; Selnæs, Kirsten Margrete; Grytli, Helene Hartvedt; Katz, Betina; Svindland, Aud; Bathen, Tone Frost; Eri, Lars Magne; Nygård, Ståle; Berge, Viktor; Tasken, Kristin Austlid; Tessem, May-Britt (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background: Robust biomarkers that identify prostate cancer patients with high risk of recurrence will improve personalised cancer care. In this study, we investigated whether tissue metabolites detectable by high-resolution ...
    • Multi-Level Molecular Characterisation of Prostate Cancer 

      Sandsmark, Elise (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:174, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
      Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in Norwegian men, and represents a substantial health burden. The disease is heterogeneous, ranging from slow growing and indolent, to very aggressive and lethal. One of the ...
    • Presence of TMPRSS2-ERG is associated with alterations of the metabolic profile in human prostate cancer 

      Hansen, Ailin Falkmo; Sandsmark, Elise; Rye, Morten Beck; Wright, Alan J; Bertilsson, Helena; Richardsen, Elin; Viset, Trond; Bofin, Anna M.; Angelsen, Anders; Selnæs, Kirsten Margrete; Bathen, Tone Frost; Tessem, May-Britt (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      TMPRSS2-ERG has been proposed to be a prognostic marker for prostate cancer. The aim of this study was to identify changes in metabolism, genes and biochemical recurrence related to TMPRSS2-ERG by using an integrated ...
