  1. 1. Diet and postmenopausal breast cancer - With a focus on low-grade inflammation

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Joana Alves Dias; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oxidative stress; low-grade inflammation; Biomarkers of inflammation; cytokines; ICC; variation; diet; dietary recommendations; diet quality index; food patterns; reduced rank regression; obesity; CVD; postmenopausal breast cancer; epidemiology; cross sectional; nested case-control;

    Abstract : Diet-breast cancer studies have shown that “healthy eating patterns” are associated with decreased risk whereas unhealthy patterns (especially those including alcohol) are associated with increased risk, particularly in postmenopausal women. The potential mechanisms behind the observed associations are still under investigation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Inflammation and prostate carcinogenesis : influence of immune characteristics and early-adulthood exposure to inflammatory conditions on prostate cancer risk

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Henrik Ugge; Katja Fall; Sabina Davidsson; Jessica Carlsson; Ove Andrén; Lars Henningsohn; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; inflammation; Cutibacterium acnes; acne; appendicitis; cytokines; circulating; inflammation marker; IL6; CXCL8;

    Abstract : Chronic inflammation has been implicated in the development of several types of cancer, and evidence from observational and animal studies suggests that it may play a role also in prostate carcinogenesis. Recent observations have brought Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes) forward as a possible causative agent in pro-oncogenic prostatic inflammation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cathepsin S as a Biomarker of Low-grade Inflammation, Insulin Resistance, and Cardiometabolic Disease Risk

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabeth Jobs; Johan Ärnlöv; Erik Ingelsson; Ulf Risérus; Göran Bergström; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; cathepsin S; inflammation; insulin resistance; diabetes; mortality; cardiovascular mortality; cancer mortality; healthy Nordic diet.;

    Abstract : Cathepsin S is a protease important in major histocompatibility complex (MHC)class II antigen presentation and also in degrading the extracellular matrix. Studies, most of them experimental, have shown that cathepsin S is involved in different pathological conditions such as obesity, inflammation, atherosclerosis, diabetes, and cancer. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dietary fat quality influences the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A low-grade inflammation is suggested to contribute to the disease development, often accompanied by obesity. Whereas n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have been considered anti-inflammatory, n-6 PUFA have been proposed to act pro-inflammatory. READ MORE
