  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; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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
