  1. 1. Carcinoma of the Urinary Bladder. Aspects of treatment, Costs and Follow-up Routines

    Author : Ingela Berrum-Svennung; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : bladder cancer; cystectomy; stents; economics; follow-up cystoscopy; single-instillation; epirubicin; recurrence size;

    Abstract : Aims: To determine costs and factors related to the total costs of cystectomy. To study the results of the radiological examinations performed 7-14 days after a cystectomy. To investigate if a single instillation of epirubicin after transurethral resection (TUR) may influence the time to the first recurrence and its size. READ MORE

  2. 2. Individually Tailored Toxicity-based Chemotherapy : Studies on Patients with Primary and Metastatic Breast Cancer

    Author : Henrik Lindman; Jonas Bergh; Carl Blomqvist; Peter Nygren; Bo Nordenskjöld; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; breast cancer; tailored chemotherapy; toxicity-based dosing; high-dose therapy; MR imaging; G-CSF; epirubicin; docetaxel; cyclophosphamide; 5-fluorouracil; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : Standard dosing of chemotherapy based on body surface area (BSA) results in large individual differences in toxicity due to a large inter-patient variability in pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD). This results in under-dosing in certain patients with a potentially weaker antitumoral effect. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Anti-Cancer Regimens : Emphasis on Busulphan and the Combination Therapies Epirubicin-Docetaxel and Fluorouracil-Epirubicin-Cyclophosphamide

    Author : Marie Sandström; Alison H Thomson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; Biopharmacy; Biofarmaci; Pharmacognosy; farmakognosi;

    Abstract : Although the main reason for the lack of distinct dose-response and -toxicity relationships for anti-cancer agents is due to variability in pharmacodynamics, variability in pharmacokinetics may also contribute. Hence, not only describing and quantifying the relationship between pharmacokinetics and dose-limiting toxicities, but characterising the pharmacokinetics and its associated variability are of obvious importance in the process of developing dosing strategies for anti-cancer regimens.

  4. 4. Towards improved oncological treatment of esophageal and gastric cancer. Clinical and translational studies

    Author : David Borg; Tumörmikromiljö; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Esophageal adenocarcinoma; Gastric cancer; PODXL; Prognosis; Prediction; Chemotherapy dose intensity; Dysphagia; Radiotherapy;

    Abstract : BackgroundThe overall aim of this thesis was to improve the oncological treatment strategies in esophageal and gastric adenocarcinoma (EGAC). Podocalyxin-like protein 1 (PODXL) has been associated with poor prognosis in other cancers and we wanted to investigate its potential role as a prognostic and predictive biomarker in resectable EGAC.

  5. 5. Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Modelling of Anticancer Drugs : Haematological Toxicity and Tumour Response in Hollow Fibres

    Author : Lena E Friberg; Mats Karlsson; Alan Boddy; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacokinetics Pharmacotherapy; Farmakokinetik Farmakoterapi; PHARMACY; FARMACI; farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy;

    Abstract : Established quantitative relationships between dose, plasma concentrations and response [pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PKPD) models] have a high potential in improving therapeutic indices of anticancer drug therapy and in increasing drug development efficiency. PKPD modelling is a helpful tool for characterising and understanding schedule dependence. READ MORE
