  1. 1. Stromal collagens in colorectal cancer and in colorectal liver metastases tumour biological implications and a source for novel tumour markers

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Hanna Nyström; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Colorectal cancer; colorectal liver metastases; tumour marker; stroma; type IV collagen; metastatic growth pattern; kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related mortality. About 50 % of patients with CRC will develop subsequent liver metastases (CLM). The survival for untreated CLM is only a few months and liver resection provides the only chance for a lasting cure. READ MORE

  2. 2. Risk Factors of Tumour Recurrence and Reduced Survival in Rectal Cancer

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Fredrik Jörgren; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tumour Marker; Ezrin; Intestinal Perforation; Neoplasm Recurrence; Rectal Neoplasms; Local; Neoplasm Metastasis; Survival Rate; Risk Factors; Surgical; Anastomosis;

    Abstract : In Sweden, 2000 patients are diagnosed with rectal cancer annually. In 1995, the Swedish Rectal Cancer Registry (SRCR) was launched to supervise and assure the quality of the management of rectal cancer. Advances in the management of rectal cancer have reduced the local recurrence (LR) rate and improved survival. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tumour evolution and novel biomarkers in breast cancer

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Jana Biermann; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast cancer; gene signature; molecular biomarkers; tumour clonality; genomic instability; Swedish haemangioma cohort;

    Abstract : Several gene signatures have been proposed in the past two decades to improve outcome prediction for breast cancer patients and to guide treatment decisions. Current treatment guidelines, however, primarily focus on established clinicopathological features. READ MORE

  4. 4. Identification, Validation and Implementation of Blastemal Biomarkers in Wilms Tumour

    University dissertation from Division of Clinical Genetics, Lund University

    Author : Daniel Sehic; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wilms Tumour; Nephroblastoma; SIX1; Blastema; biomarker; Immunochemisty; Immunohistochemestry;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis has been to establish biomarkers for the blastemal element in Wilms tumour (WT) – the most common paediatric kidney cancer. Blastema is, together with epithelium and stroma, one of the three common histological elements of WT. WTs dominated by blastema after preoperative chemotherapy are classified as high risk tumours.

  5. 5. Chromosomal Instability and Genomic Amplification in Bone and Soft Tissue Tumours

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Genetics, Lund University

    Author : David Gisselsson Nord; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nuclear atypia; kinetochore; anaphase bridge; p53; breakage-fusion-bridge cycle; TP53; HMGIC; MDM2; mitotic instability; genomic instability; FISH; osteosarcoma; liposarcoma; amplification; tumour; chromosome; cytogenetics; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Acquired genetic abnormalities are found in all types of malignant tumours and may contribute to neoplastic processes by altering protein structure or dosage. Many bone and soft tissue tumours (BSTT) are characterised by complex patterns of chromosome changes, including extensive intratumour heterogeneity and amplification of DNA sequences. READ MORE
