Targeting Stress Response Pathways In Soft Tissue Sarcoma: The Role Of Hypoxia And Autophagy In Tumor Survival, Michael Nakazawa
Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations
Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are a group of malignancies that arise from mesenchymal tissue, consisting of over 50 distinct histiologic subtypes. Unfortunately, the five-year survival rate of sarcoma patients has remained relatively unchanged, and due to the rarity of the disease, research and development of adequate therapeutics for STS lags behind other cancers. Therefore, understanding the molecular drivers of STS is important in developing new therapeutics, as well as discovering druggable processes that occur across multiple subtypes. One feature common to STS is hypoxia, or low O2 conditions. Using molecular biology, biochemical approaches, genetically engineered mouse models, as well as ...
