  1. 1. Characterizing the immunogenic cell death induced by Semliki Forest Virus in glioblastoma cell lines

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för immunologi, genetik och patologi; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Aishwarya Sivaramakrishnan; [2021]
    Keywords : Glioblastoma; Immunogenic Cell Death; Oncolytic Viruses; Semliki Forest Virus; Aishwarya Sivaramakrishnan;

    Abstract : Glioblastoma is the most common primary brain tumor in humans and has a poor prognosis. Current therapies are not curative. Oncolytic viruses (OVs) are being investigated as tools to induce immunogenic cell death (ICD), cell death capable of activating the immune system. READ MORE
