  1. 1. Epidemiology, diagnostics and treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers

    Author : Oscar Zaar; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pain; non-melanoma skin cancer; basal cell carcinoma; merkel cell carcinoma; Bowen’s disease; imaging mass spectrometry; lipidomics; photodynamic therapy;

    Abstract : Skin cancer, including malignant melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), is a growing problem due to the increasing incidence in Sweden and in other Caucasian populations. NMSCs are diagnosed as often as all other cancers combined and include basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), precursors to SCC such as Bowen’s disease (BD) and actinic keratosis (AK), as well as several rare skin cancers including Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).

  2. 2. Connecting viral oncoproteins to microRNA, autophagy and metabolism in Merkel cell carcinoma

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Satendra Kumar; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is an aggressive type of skin cancer. Around 80% of MCCs harbor an integrated Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV) genome with a mutation in the large T antigen (LT) gene, leading to expression of truncated LT. It is evident that the viral truncated LT and small T antigen (sT) play important roles in MCC tumorigenesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies on polyomaviruses in humans : In relation to haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Géraldine Giraud; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The simultaneous discovery of two polyomaviruses in humans in 1971, BK and JC viruses (BKV and JCV), initiated the research on polyomaviruses in relation to human diseases. This has now been intensified with the consecutive discoveries, the last three years, of three new family members, KI, WU and Merkel cell polyomaviruses (KIPyV, WUPyV and MCPyV). READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on nerve terminations in human mucosa and skin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Marita Hilliges; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epithelium; herpes simplex; immunohistochemisry; Merkel cell; mucosa; nerves; oral; PGP 9.5; skin; stereology; urinary incontinence; vagina.;

    Abstract : - In spite of their accessibility and important sensory function,the nervous tissue components of human oral and vaginal mucosa and skin have beensubject to very few, if any, systematic investigations. Studies on the innervationof oral tissues have mainly focused on the dental pulp, the periodontium and thegingiva, probably because of specific clinical interest, thus largely neglectingthe mucosa.

  5. 5. Endocrine tumour development : With special focus on chromosome arms 1p and 11q

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Brita Nord; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrine tumour; Follicular thyroid tumour; Malignant melanoma; Midgut carcinoid; Pheochromocytoma; Abdominal paraganglioma; Merkel cell carcinoma; MEN1; SDHD; RIZ;

    Abstract : The overall goal of this thesis has been to characterise the involvement of chromosome arms 1p and 11 q in the development of endocrine tumours. The MEN1 gene was analysed as a candidate tumour suppressor gene by screening for mutations in follicular thyroid tumours, malignant melanomas, pheochromocytomas, and abdominal paragangliomas.
