  1. 1. Pituitary Tumors - Epidemiology and the Diagnostic Value of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET

    Author : Axel Tjörnstrand; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PET; Pituitary neuroendocrine tumor; pituitary tumor; somatostatin receptor imaging; gallium68; 68Ga; SSTR; SSTR-PET;

    Abstract : Pituitary neuroendocrine tumors (PitNETs) are considered common in the general population. However benign in most cases, these tumors can evoke dramatic morbidity in patients with aggressive tumor growth and/or excess hormone secretion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolution of Vertebrate Endocrine and Neuronal Gene Families : Focus on Pituitary and Retina

    Author : Daniel Ocampo Daza; Dan Larhammar; Marc Robinson-Rechavi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : phylogenetics; evolution; molecular evolution; gene family evolution; genome duplication; gene duplication; oxytocin receptor; vasopressin receptor; visual opsin; transducin; growth hormone; prolactin; somatolactin; growth hormone receptor; prolactin receptor; somatostatin receptor; SSTR; IGFBP; evolution; molekylär evolution; fylogeni;

    Abstract : The duplication of genes followed by selection is perhaps the most prominent way in which molecular biological systems gain multiplicity, diversity and functional complexity in evolution. Whole genome duplications (WGDs) therefore have the potential of generating an extraordinary amount of evolutionary innovation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lutetium-177-octreotate treatment of small intestine neuroendocrine tumors - Radiation biology as basis for optimization

    Author : Johan Spetz; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy; PRRT; somatostatin receptors; SSTR; midgut carcinoid; radiogenomics;

    Abstract : Patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) often have metastatic spread at the time of diagnosis. NETs frequently express somatostatin receptors (SSTR) that can be targeted by radiolabeled somatostatin analogs (e.g. 177Lu-octreotate). READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel Circulating and Tissue Biomarkers for Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors and Lung Carcinoids

    Author : Tao Cui; Valeria Giandomenico; Kjell Öberg; Apostolos V. Tsolakis; Marco Volante; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) and lung carcinoids (LCs) are relatively indolent tumors, which originate from neuroendocrine (NE) cells of the diffuse NE system. Metastases can spread before diagnosis. Thus, potential cures become unavailable, which entitles new biomarker development. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects on Diagnosis and Treatment of Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours

    Author : Christina Swärd; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Carcinoid; Endocrine pancreatic tumour; Neuroendocrine; Octreotide; Somatostatin receptor; Peptide receptor; Radionuclide therapy; Absorbed dose; Chromogranin A; Liver transplantation;

    Abstract : Aspects on Diagnosis and Treatment of Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours Background. Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs) originate from endocrine cells of the intestinal mucosa and pancreas. READ MORE
