  1. 1. Small-Scale Absorbed Dose Modelling in Selective Internal Radiation Therapy Microsphere Distribution in Normal Liver Tissue

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Abstract : Radioembolisation (RE), with yttrium-90 (90Y) labelled microspheres, is an increasingly common treatment method for unresectable liver tumours. The tolerable mean absorbed dose for normal liver (NL) tissue is higher in RE than in External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT); absorbed dose heterogeneity is thought to be one important reason, together with a low absorbed dose rate, but the knowledge of microsphere distributions is limited.

    Abstract : Sirtuins (SIRTs) are NAD+-dependent lysine deacetylating enzymes targeting histones and a multitude of non-histone proteins. The SIRTs have been related to important cellular processes such as gene expression, cell proliferation, apoptosis and metabolism. They are proposed to be involved in the pathogenesis of e.g. READ MORE
