    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; skin; basal cell carcinoma; microdissection; X-chromosome inactivation; Patologi; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to gain further insight into the biology of normal human skin and basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Morphology in combination with microdissection was used as primary tool for sampling. READ MORE

  2. 2. Aspects of skin cancer diagnosis in clinical practice

    Author : Ingela Ahnlide; Lund Dermatologi och venereologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; skin cancer diagnosis; skin cancer; skin surgery; dermoscopy; basal cell carcinoma; squamous cell carcinoma; melanoma; dysplastic naevus; naevus; algorithms;

    Abstract : Skin cancer incidence is increasing in fair-skinned populations. The three most common skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and malignant melanoma (MM). A correct diagnosis is crucial for an efficient and tailored treatment for the skin cancer patient. READ MORE

  3. 3. Epidemiology, diagnostics and treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pain; non-melanoma skin cancer; basal cell carcinoma; merkel cell carcinoma; Bowen’s disease; imaging mass spectrometry; lipidomics; photodynamic therapy;

    Abstract : Skin cancer, including malignant melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), is a growing problem due to the increasing incidence in Sweden and in other Caucasian populations. NMSCs are diagnosed as often as all other cancers combined and include basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), precursors to SCC such as Bowen’s disease (BD) and actinic keratosis (AK), as well as several rare skin cancers including Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).

    Abstract : Sun-damaged skin is a relevant target tissue for studying the development of skin cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the epidermal response to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in human skin in vivo and in vitro and to explore the mutagenic effect of UVA. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impaired reparative processes in particular related to hyaluronan in various cutaneous disorders : a structural analysis

    Author : Ulf Bertheim; Bengt Gerdin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : hyaluronan; scar tissue; diabetes mellitus; basal cell carcinoma; skin; wound healing; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : Cutaneous reparative processes, including wound healing, are highly developed procedures in which a chain of actions occurs to reconstitute the function of the wounded tissue. To prevent a delayed or excessive reparative process it is important to understand how this procedure develops and is maintained. READ MORE
