    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Josefin Sundh; Scott Montgomery; Christer Janson; Björn Ställberg; Anne Lindberg; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; COPD; HRQL; CCQ; comorbidity; mortality; DOSE index; SMR; exacerbations; asthma COPD clinic; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Background: Risk factors for poor health related quality of life (HRQL), mortality and exacerbations in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) need to be explored.Objectives: To examine associations of comorbidity and Body Mass Index (BMI) with HRQL using the Clinical COPD Questionnaire (CCQ); to examine the prognostic qualities of the multidimensional instrument DOSE index; to examine the association of health status estimated by the CCQ with mortality; and to examine management of exacerbations and subsequent exacerbation risk.

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Björn Morén; Torbjörn Larsson; Åsa Carlsson Tedgren; Sebastiaan Breedveld; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Cancer is a widespread type of diseases that each year affects millions of people. It is mainly treated by chemotherapy, surgery or radiation therapy, or a combination of them. One modality of radiation therapy is high dose-rate brachytherapy, used in treatment of for example prostate cancer and gynecologic cancer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Developing and evaluating dose calculation models for verification of advanced radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Abstract : Aggressive lymphoma is a rapidly growing tumour of lymphocyte origin, potentially curable with chemotherapy. In a trial by the Nordic Lymphoma Group, 405 patients with aggressive lymphoma were included, and randomised to receive either the standard chemotherapy regimen, CHOP, or a weekly multidrug regimen, MACOP-B.
