Title: Presenting symptoms and diagnostic lag times in children with Hodgkin lymphoma at Karolinska University Hospital
Summary: Due to histological characteristics and diverse symptoms, Hodgkin lymphoma can be hard to diagnose, which may lead to diagnostic delays, spread disease, and more intense treatment. We assessed the lag time between presenting symptoms and diagnosis in children with Hodgkin lymphoma

Title: Investigation of endogenous p21 expression and its correlation to therapy resistance in high-risk neuroblastoma
Summary: The cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21 has been implicated in a senescent cell fate, which is linked to therapy-resistance in several tumours. We have investigated sensitivity against chemotherapy in NB cell lines pre-treated with a small-molecular inhibitor of p21.
