  3. 3. Tracking functional changes in the cancer genome : a molecular genetic analysis of renal and prostatic carcinomas using PCR based techniques by a candidate chromosome and candidate gene approach

    Author : Chunde Li; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Renal cell carcinoma; Prostatic Carcinoma; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common malignancy occurring in the adult kidney. Prostatic carcinoma is the most common male malignancy in most Western countries. Several environmental factors have been suggested to contributed to the tumor genesis but the involvement of genetic factors is also recognized. READ MORE
