    Abstract : Cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) is one of the most rapidly increasing cancers in the Swedish population. The aetiology of melanoma is a complex interplay between genetics, host characteristics and environmental factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic characterization of malignant melanoma and breast cancer

    Author : Göran B Jönsson; Bröstcancer-genetik; []

    Abstract : Malignant melanoma and breast cancer are common malignant diseases characterized by considerable heterogeneity with respect to genetics, histopathology, biology and clinical course. In breast cancer, two major susceptibility genes have been identified, BRCA1 and BRCA2, which account for a significant proportion of high-risk breast cancer families. READ MORE
