    • Concomitant inactivation of the p53- and pRB- functional pathways predicts resistance to DNA damaging drugs in breast cancer in vivo 

      Knappskog, Stian; Berge, Elisabet Ognedal; Chrisanthar, Ranjan; Geisler, Stephanie; Staalesen, Vidar; Leirvaag, Beryl; Yndestad, Synnøve; de Faveri, Elise Norheim; Karlsen, Bård Ove; Wedge, David C.; Akslen, Lars A.; Lilleng, Peer Kåre; Løkkevik, Erik; Lundgren, Steinar; Østenstad, Bjørn; Risberg, Terje; Mjaaland, Ingvil; Aas, Turid; Lønning, Per Eystein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-05-08)
      Chemoresistance is the main obstacle to cancer cure. Contrasting studies focusing on single gene mutations, we hypothesize chemoresistance to be due to inactivation of key pathways affecting cellular mechanisms such as ...
    • 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; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      TP53 mutations have been associated with resistance to anthracyclines but not to taxanes in breast cancer patients. The MDM2 promoter single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) T309G increases MDM2 activity and may reduce ...
