    University dissertation from Institutionen för molekylär och klinisk medicin

    Author : Martin Tondel; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; Environmental; Chernobyl; ionising radiation; geographical information systems GIS; 8-OHdG; Malignancies; Low dose; Dose-response; Latency; Causalty; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas Epidemiology; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden Epidemiologi;

    Abstract : On 26 April 1986 an accident occurred in the Chernobyl nuclear power plant resulting in the release of large amount of radionuclides. Almost five percent of the total released caesium-137 was deposited in Sweden. The incidence of malignancies in the most affected counties in Sweden was investigated in three epidemiological studies.

  2. 2. Recurrent Genetic Mutations in Lymphoid Malignancies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Emma Young; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lymphoid malignancies; mutations; CLL; stereotypy; subsets; PMBL; NFKBIE; EGR2; whole-genome sequencing; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : In recent years, the genetic landscape of B-cell derived lymphoid malignancies, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), has been rapidly unraveled, identifying recurrent genetic mutations with potential clinical impact. Interestingly, ~30% of all CLL patients can be assigned to more homogeneous subsets based on the expression of a similar or “stereotyped” B-cell receptor (BcR). READ MORE

  3. 3. Angiogenesis in childhood malignancies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för kirurgiska vetenskaper

    Author : Erik Sköldenberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Angiogenesis Factor; Biopsy; Needle; Neovascularization; Pathologic; Nephroblastoma; Reference value; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; kirurgi; särskilt barnkirurgi; Pediatric Surgery;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is necessary for the growth and spread of solid tumors. In these studies angiogenesis was measured in childhood malignancies in general and in Wilms’ tumor in particular, and cutting needle biopsy (CNB) specimens were evaluated for diagnosis in childhood renal tumors.

  4. 4. Trisomies in Hematologic Malignancies

    University dissertation from Section of Clinical Genetics, Institution of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University Hospital

    Author : Kajsa Paulsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; cytogenetik; Genetik; cytogenetics; Genetics; leukemia; chromosome aberration; trisomy;

    Abstract : Acquired clonal chromosome aberrations, closely associated with leukemogenesis, are found in many hematologic malignancies. Although the balanced rearrangements, such as translocations and inversions, are the ones most commonly thought of in the context of leukemias, gains of chromosomes ? e.g.. READ MORE

  5. 5. Liver cirrhosis-epidemiological and Clinical Aspects

    University dissertation from Section of Clinical Genetics, Institution of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University Hospital

    Author : Steingerður Anna Gunnarsdóttir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Liver cirrhosis; etiology; alcoholic liver disease; mortality; portal hypertension; esophageal varices; variceal bleeding; hepatitis C; hepatocellular cancer; malignancies; small intestinal motility; small intestinal bacterial overgrowth;

    Abstract : Liver cirrhosis is the end-stage of many different chronic liver diseases. Limited data exists on the epidemiology, natural history and complications of liver cirrhosis such as esophageal varices and malignancies in the Nordic countries after the discovery of hepatitis C (HCV).
