  1. 1. Towards Novel Biomarkers for Low-grade Glioma

    Author : Shala Ghaderi Berntsson; Anja Smits; Peter Siesjö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Low-grade glioma; prognosis; epilepsy; PROX1; DNA repair enzyme; PET; Physiological MRI; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Gliomas are common primary brain tumours that occur as low-grade (LGG) and high-grade gliomas (HGG). Typically occurring in younger adults, LGG has an indolent course with a median survival of 5-10 years, but carries an inherent potential for transforming into HGG. READ MORE

  2. 2. Preoperative MRI and PET in suspected low-grade gliomas : Radiological, neuropathological and clinical intersections

    Author : Anna Falk Delgado; Elna-Marie Larsson; Anja Smits; Jens Sörensen; John Hald; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Low-grade glioma; MRI; PET; FA; MD; Perfusion; Diffusion; Neuropathology; Oligodendroglioma; Astrocytoma; PET; tractography; DTI; DTT; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Gliomas are neuroepithelial tumours classified by cell type and grade. In adults, low-grade gliomas are comprised mainly of astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas grade II. READ MORE

  3. 3. Changes in writing processes caused by post-stroke aphasia or low-grade glioma

    Author : Charlotte Johansson-Malmeling; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; aphasia; writing; writing process; spelling; keystroke logging; low-grade glioma;

    Abstract : Background: Writing is a cognitively and linguistically complex task, therefore sensitive to impairment caused by the presence and surgical removal of low-grade glioma or presence of post-stroke aphasia. Purposes: The overall aim of the thesis was to investigate the changes in writing processes, text characteristics and spelling caused by post-stroke aphasia or low-grade glioma. READ MORE

  4. 4. Language ability in patients with low-grade glioma - detecting signs of subtle dysfunction

    Author : Malin Antonsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Low-grade glioma; language ability; high-level language; tumour surgery; brain tumour; writing; keystroke logging;

    Abstract : Background: Low-grade glioma (LGG) is a slow-growing brain tumour often situated in or near areas involved in language and/or cognitive functions. Consequently, there is a risk that patients develop language impairments due to tumour growth or surgical resection. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cognitive Deficits Reflecting Diffuse and Focal Brain Lesions Caused by Slow Growing Brain Tumors - Low-grade Gliomas

    Author : Lena Ek; Ove Almkvist; Anja Smits; Hans Samuelsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Cognition; low-grade glioma; brain tumor; diffuse brain injury; neuropsychological tests; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : The overall purpose was to characterize the impact that low-grade glioma (LGG) – a type of slowly growing brain tumor – has on cognitive functions. Paper I was an in-depth analysis of cognitive dysfunction of patients with histological proven LGG. READ MORE
