IONIZING RADIATION INDUCED APOPTOSIS IN THE ADULT RAT FOREBRAIN

Author: Soňa Bálentová, et al.

Ionizing radiation commonly used in the radiotherapy of brain tumours can cause adverse side effects to surrounding normal brain tissue.

EXPRESSION OF ANTIAPOPTOTIC PROTEIN SURVIVIN IN DYSPLASTIC NEVI

Author: Marian Adamkov, et al.

annotation image

Cells of malignant tumors show a certain degree of resistance to apoptosis, while some types of tumor cells are remarkably resistant. Malignant melanoma, one of the most aggresive tumors, is characterized by high resistance to therapeutic drugs and by elevated capacity to metastasize.
