  1. 1. Quantitative analysis of tumor growth and response to therapy

    Author : Esmaeil Mehrara; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tumor; growth; response; therapy; modeling; clinical;

    Abstract : Modeling the natural growth of tumors is of value for evaluation of tumor progression and optimization of treatment strategies. However, modeling tumor growth based on clinical data is hampered by the limited data available, since therapy is in general initiated as early as possible after diagnosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling late toxicity in hypofractionated radiation therapy

    Author : Niclas Pettersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hypofractionation; normal tissue complication probability; modelling; linear-quadratic model; fractionation sensitivity; late toxicity; radiation-induced rib fracture; genitourinary toxicity; stereotactic body radiation therapy; high-dose-rate brachytherapy; multimodality radiation therapy; patient-reported outcomes; prostate cancer; nsclc;

    Abstract : In hypofractionated radiation therapy (RT), the treatment is delivered by few fractions with high doses per fraction. This is in contrast to conventionally fractionated RT where the total dose is delivered in many fractions with low doses per fraction. READ MORE

  3. 3. Relative biological effectiveness in proton therapy: accounting for variability and uncertainties

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Jakob Ödén; Iuliana Toma-Dasu; Kjell Eriksson; Radhe Mohan; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proton therapy; relative biological effectiveness; linear energy transfer; proton track-end optimisation; radiation-induced toxicity; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : Radiation therapy is widely used for treatments of malignant diseases. The search for the optimal radiation treatment approach for a specific case is a complex task, ultimately seeking to maximise the tumour control probability (TCP) while minimising the normal tissue complication probability (NTCP).

  4. 4. Radiation therapy of upper gastrointestinal cancers with scanned proton beams A treatment planning study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Gracinda Mondlane; Albert Siegbahn; Michael Gubanski; Iuliana Toma-Dasu; Crister Ceberg; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Treatment planning; gastric cancer; liver metastases; photon beam therapy; proton beam therapy; dosimetric comparison; normal tissue complication probability; risk of radiation-induced secondary cancer; patient selection; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : Proton beam therapy (PBT), using scanned beams, is an emerging modality used for the treatment of cancer. The clinical advantages of PBT, compared to commonly used photon beam therapy, have been demonstrated in different studies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Liposomes for Drug Delivery from Physico-chemical Studies to Applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nill Bergstrand; Katarina Edwards; Felix M Goni; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; liposome; steric stabilisation; BNCT; cryo-TEM; EGF; targeting; stability; permeability; pH-sensitive liposomes; triggered release; Fysikalisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Physico-chemical characterisation of structure and stability of liposomes intended for drug delivery is the central issue in this thesis. In addition, targeted liposomes to be used in boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) were developed.Lysolipids and fatty acids are products formed upon hydrolysis of PC-lipids. READ MORE
