  1. 1. Genetic determinants of breast cancer risk

    Author : Jingmei Li; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Breast Neoplasms;

    Abstract : The main purpose of this thesis was to identify genetic risk factors using both hypothesis-based and hypothesis-free approaches. In an attempt to identify common disease susceptibility alleles for breast cancer, we started off with a hypothesis-free approach, and performed a combined analysis of three genome-wide association studies (GWAS), involving 2,702 women of European ancestry with invasive breast cancer and 5,726 controls.

  3. 3. Studies of gene fusions and copy number alterations in salivary and adnexal neoplasms

    Author : Marta Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : cancer genetics; fusion oncogenes; chromosome translocation; MYB; NFIB; CRTC1; MAML2; salivary gland; breast; adenoid cystic carcinoma; mucoepidermoid carcinoma; hidradenoma;

    Abstract : Cancer is a genetic disease caused by the accumulation of genetic changes such as mutations and chromosomal rearrangements. An increasing number of genetic studies of both hematological and solid neoplasms have shown that recurrent chromosome translocations often result in fusion oncogenes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects in mammographic screening : Detection, prediction, recurrence and prognosis

    Author : Mercidyl Gelig Thurfjell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Breast neoplasms; recurrence; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; diagnostisk radiologi; Diagnostic Radiology;

    Abstract : Screening mammograms comprising of 32 first round, 10 interval and 32 second round detected cancers and 46 normal were examined by an expert screener, a screening radiologist, a clinical radiologist and a computer-assisted diagnosis (CAD) system. The expert screener, screening radiologist, clinical radiologist and the CAD detected 44, 41, 34 and 37 cancers, respectively, while their respective specificities were 80%, 83%, 100% and 22%.
