  1. 1. Recurrent Non-Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Sigurdur Gudjonsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; early instillation; biopsies; biomarkers; recurrence; bladder cancer; non-muscle-invasive; tissue microarray; gene-expression;

    Abstract : A characteristic feature of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is the high risk of recurrent disease after primary treatment. Although only a minority of cases eventually progress to a life-threatening muscle-invasive tumour, it is necessary to conduct long-term follow-up with repeated cystoscopies. READ MORE

    Abstract : Urinary bladder cancer is a heterogeneous disease appearing in different forms, e.g. non-muscle invasive and muscle invasive. For all variants, the expression of proteins is interesting to analyze for diagnostic, predictive, prognostic and drug targeting purposes, since it reflects the altered gene expression causing the cancer.

  3. 3. On the role of nitric oxide in lower urinary tract disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Lotta Renström Koskela; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is an important biological molecule with a variety of functions. Among other, it is a signalling molecule capable of inducing smooth muscle relaxation and vasodilatation, it regulates proliferation, can induce apoptosis and act as an effector molecule in host defence reactions and in immune regulatory processes.

  4. 4. Stage T1 Urinary Bladder Carcinoma Investigation of A Population-Based Cohort

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Hans Olsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Approximately 2 300 new cases of urinary bladder carcinoma (UBC) are diagnosed every year in Sweden. This type of cancer is characterized as a long-standing disease with a high risk of recurrence and progression from an indolent to a more aggressive course. READ MORE
