  1. 21. Behind the scenes of thyroid tumors : Underlying genetic mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Jia Jing Lee; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Familial medullary thyroid cancer; follicular thyroid cancer; anaplastic thyroid cancer; CCND1; UBCH10; p16; RASSF1A; BRAF; array-CGH; tumor progression; global methylation; LINE-1; LUMA;

    Abstract : Thyroid cancer is the most frequently observed malignancy involving endocrine tissues. This group of diseases is also the major cause of death related to neoplasia of the endocrine system. Tumors in the thyroid gland are common in the general population and the majority represents benign follicular adenoma (FTA). READ MORE

    Abstract : Chromosomal aberrations have been recognized as important observations that underpin the concept of a mutator phenotype in cancer. In this thesis, two basic strategies were applied to map the location of cancerrelated genes in several types of cancers. READ MORE

  3. 23. Chemotactic factors in the human follicle at ovulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Eva Runesson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chemokine; follicle; gonadotropin; human; ovary; ovulation;

    Abstract : Ovulation is initiated by the midcycle gonadotropin surge, which leads to a controlled degradation of the follicle wall ending in follicular rupture and oocyte extrusion. The gonadotropins triggers several biochemical and biophysical changes such as vascular alterations, increased proteolytic enzyme activity and leukocyte extravasation, within the preovulatory follicle.

  4. 24. The Ovulatory Process. Studies in the human and the rabbit

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Pernilla Dahm-Kähler; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ovulation; ovary; rabbit; human; follicle; MCP-1; intrafollicular pressure;

    Abstract : Background and general summary: Ovulation is the cascade of events ending with follicular rupture and oocyte extrusion. This ovulatory process is triggered by the LH surge, which induces biochemical and biophysical alterations within the preovulatory follicle. READ MORE

  5. 25. Effects of Endogenous and Exogenous Hormones on the Female Breast With Special Reference to the Expression of Proteoglycans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gunilla Hallberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast tissue; proteoglycans; mammographic density; oral contraceptives; androgen receptor; proliferation; apoptosis; extracellular matrix; premenopausal; MEDICINE Surgery Obstetrics and women s diseases Obstetrics and gynaecology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to study the effects of endogenous and exogenous hormones and mammographic breast density (BD) on cellular markers in non-cancerous female breast tissue. Women on the waiting list for breast reduction plastic surgery were recruited (n = 79), and randomized to 2 months of hormone therapy or no therapy before surgery. READ MORE
