  2. 2. Studies on Prediction of Axillary Lymph Node Status in Invasive Breast Cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Ahlgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Breast cancer; lymph node metastases; prognostic factors; predictive factors; axillary surgery; angiogenesis; immunohistochemistry; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among females in Sweden. Axillary lymph-node dissection is a standard procedure in the management of breast cancer, aiming at obtaining prognostic information for adjuvant therapy decisions. Axillary dissection entails considerable morbidity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sentinel Node Biopsy in Breast Cancer Clinical and Immunological Aspects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jana de Boniface; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Surgery; breast cancer; tumour immunology; sentinel node biopsy; CD3-zeta; CD28; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : The most important prognostic factor in breast cancer is the axillary lymph node status. The sentinel node biopsy (SNB) is reported to stage the axilla with an accuracy > 95 % in early breast cancer. Tumour-related perturbation of T-cell function has been observed in patients with malignancies, including breast cancer. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sentinel lymph node biopsy in breast cancer : aspects on indications and limitations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Linda Holmstrand Zetterlund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Axillary lymph node status is the most important prognostic factor in breast cancer. Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) was introduced in the late 1990s and has replaced axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) as the gold standard axillary nodal staging procedure in early breast cancer due to higher accuracy and less morbidity compared with ALND.
