  1. 1. Salivary gland neoplasms : studies on the cytoskeleton, the secretory apparatus and the nuclear DNA content

    Author : Hans Gustafsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Salivary gland neoplasms; intermediate filaments; immuno- histochemistry; ultrastructure; DNA; development; histogenesis; progno¬sis;

    Abstract : The heterogeneity of salivary gland neoplasms have made classification and prognostication of these tumours sometimes difficult, and the in­troduction of techniques, such as enzyme and carbohydrate histochemis­try and electron microscopy have only to a certain extent increased our knowledge in these respects. In the present study immunohistochemical methods have been used to identify intermediate filament proteins (IFP) in normal fetal and adult parotid glands, as well as in salivary neo­plasms.

    Abstract : Background: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) are non-conventional health care approaches used in parallel with or instead of conventional medicine. Little is known about Swedish patients’ patterns of complementary CAM use in the context of cancer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Grade 3 : Biological and Clinical Aspects

    Author : Abir Salwa Ali; Malin Grönberg; Christoffer Juhlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate biological and clinical aspects of G3 gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (G3 GEP-NENs).In our first study, the expression of the tumor suppressor p53 was investigated. In a cohort of G3 GEP-NENs we found the expression of p53 protein to be present in 39% of 124 cases. READ MORE

  5. 5. Colorectal Cancer - Evaluation of MMP as a prognostic marker and a model for peritoneal response

    Author : Andreas Jonsson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Colorectal neoplasms; matrix metalloproteinases; colorectal surgery; survival; prognosis; peritoneum; peritoneal neoplasms;

    Abstract : Background : There are about 6600 patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer in Sweden each year. Survival rates vary with cancer stage at diagnosis. The main treatment is surgery together with, in some cases, oncological treatment. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) are deeply involved in the growth and spread of colorectal cancer tumours. READ MORE
