  1. 1. Prostate cancer : epidemiological studies

    Author : Henrik Grönberg; Per Lenner; Peter Iversen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; Epidemiology; Incidence; Age; Survival; Mortality; Familyhistory; Genetic factors; Body Mass Index; Diet;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is a large and increasing medical problem both in Sweden and in the rest of the developed world, with about 300.000 new cases diagnosed world wide annually. Despite the high incidence of this disease, little is known about the aetiology of prostate cancer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic and epidemiological studies of hereditary colorectal cancer

    Author : Kristina Cederquist; Henrik Grönberg; Irina Golovleva; Gösta Holmgren; Mef Nilbert; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Lynch syndrome; HNPCC; colorectal cancer; endometrial cancer; cancer risk; MSI; MLH1; MSH2; MSH6; genome-wide scan; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; medicinsk genetik; Medical Genetics;

    Abstract : Lynch syndrome (Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer, HNPCC) is the most common hereditary syndrome predisposing to colorectal cancer, accounting for 1-3% of all colorectal cancer. This multi-organ cancer predisposition syndrome is caused by mutations in the mismatch repair (MMR) genes, especially MLH1 and MSH2, and to lesser extents MSH6 and PMS2, which lead to widespread genetic instability and thus microsatellite instability (MSI).

  3. 3. Prostate cancer aetiology : epidemiological studies of the IGF- and one-carbon metabolism pathways

    Author : Mattias Johansson; Pär Stattin; Henrik Grönberg; Fredrik Wiklund; Jenny Chang-Claude; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urology and andrology; Urologi och andrologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the involvement of the insulin-like growth factor- and the one-carbon metabolism pathways in prostate cancer aetiology, studying both circulating biomarkers and genetic variation. Papers included in the thesis were conducted within the case-control study CAncer Prostate in Sweden (CAPS), and the two prospective studies European Prospective Investigation into nutrition and Cancer (EPIC), and Northern Sweden Health and Disease Cohort (NSHDC).

  4. 4. Prostate cancer and inflammatory genes

    Author : Fredrik Lindmark; Henrik Grönberg; William G Nelson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; inflammation; association studies; epidemiology; MSR1; MIC-1; IL1-RN; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer remains a significant health concern for men throughout the world. Accumulating epidemiologic and molecular evidence suggests that inflammation is an important component in the aetiology of prostate cancer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic variation and prostate cancer : population-based association studies in Sweden

    Author : Sara Lindström; Henrik Grönberg; Fredrik Wiklund; John Todd; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; epidemiology; SRD5A2; ERG; progression; genetics; association studies; polymorphism; haplotype; CDH1; AR; CYP17; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer constitutes the most common malignancy and the most common cause of cancer‐related death in Swedish men. A large body of evidence suggests that inherited genetic variants contribute to both development and progression of prostate cancer. READ MORE
