  1. 1. Genomic Profiling, Mutations and Deranged Signaling in Esophageal Cancer and Hereditary Colorectal Cancer

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Anna Isinger Ekstrand; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Esophageal cancer; hereditary cancer; HNPCC; copy number analysis; CGH; gene expression; Wnt; PIK3CA; CHEK2; gastric cancer; colorectal cancer;

    Abstract : Esophageal cancer and colorectal cancer represents two major types of gastrointestinal tumors. Though refined surgery and introduction of novel chemotherapeutics have improved outcome, more than 2500 Swedes die from these diseases every year. Novel markers for early diagnosis, prognosis and treatment prediction are therefore needed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Family history and breast cancer susceptibility : clinical and molecular studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital

    Abstract : Apart from gender, family history is the most important risk factor for breast cancer. In 5-10 % of the cases there is a family history pattern of an autosomal dominant disease and there is also a familial clustering of breast cancer associated with a more modest increased risk of the disease.

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Family history is an important risk factor for breast cancer, the presence of breast cancer in a first degree relative in general nearly doubles the risk and the risk increases with the number of affected relatives. Pathogenic mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2 and other high- and moderate risk-genes account for 25% of the familial risk for breast cancer. READ MORE
