  1. 1. Genetic Profiling in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine Doctoral Dissertation

    Author : Princy Francis; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; synovial sarcoma; prognosis; Cytology; SS18-SSX; intratumor heterogeneity; aCGH; array comparative genomic hybridization; gene expression analysis; microarray; cDNA; Soft tissue sarcoma; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are a heterogeneous group of highly malignant mesenchymal tumors that account for ~1% of all malignancies. Frequent heterogeneity and pleomorphism along with suboptimal diagnostic reproducibility and insufficient prognostic markers make clinical management of these tumors difficult. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pathogenetic Mechanisms in Soft Tissue Tumors

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Elsa Arbajian; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Soft tissue tumors; Sarcomas; Gene fusions; SNP array; Next generation sequencing; Haploidization; Point mutations;

    Abstract : Soft tissue tumors (STT) constitute a heterogeneous group of tumors that arise in tissues of mesenchymal origin. They are currently classified according to morphology and resemblance to normal tissue into over 100 subtypes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Soft Tissue Sarcoma Patterns multiplicity, heterogeneity and growth characteristics

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Josefin Fernebro; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancerology; Cytologi; oncology; Soft tissue sarcoma; tumor periphery; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; Cytology; multiple primary tumors; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) represent a group of rare and heterogenous tumors that optimally should be diagnosed and treated within multidisciplinary teams. This thesis has studied various aspects ? pathological, genetical, and clinical ? of STS. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prognostic factors in soft tissue sarcoma. Tissue microarray for immunostaining, the importance of whole-tumor sections and time-dependence

    University dissertation from Oncology, Lund

    Author : Jacob Engellau; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; growth pattern; time-dependence; P-glycoprotein Pgp ; CD44; β-catenin; cyclin A; bcl-2; p53; Ki-67; immunohistochemistry IHC ; whole-tumor sections; tissue microarray TMA ; Soft tissue sarcoma; prognostic factors; Cytology; oncology; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : In adult soft tissue sarcoma (STS) of the extremities and trunk wall, improved prognostic factors are needed to identify patients at high-risk for metastasis. Various factors are included in the many prognostic systems currently in use and the prognostic value of immunohistochemical (IHC) expression of biological markers is unclear. READ MORE

  5. 5. Clinical and Biological Patterns in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Emelie Styring; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiosarcoma; radiation-associated sarcoma; irradiated; RET; KIT; MYC.;

    Abstract : Soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) are rare malignant tumors, of which 3/4 are high-grade and 1/3 metastasize. For optimal management, STSs should be treated at multidisciplinary sarcoma centers. READ MORE
