  1. 1. Detecting prostate cancer metastases - PET/CT and the sentinel node technique

    Author : Henrik Kjölhede; Malmö Urologisk cancerforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; Metastases; PET CT; Choline; Fluoride; Sentinel lymph nodes;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies. Its treatment is highly dependent on the presence or absence of metastases. The available invasive and non-invasive modalities for detecting metastases are imperfect. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sentinel Node in Clinical Practice : Implications for Breast Cancer Treatment and Prognosis

    Author : Yvette Andersson; Leif Bergkvist; Jan Frisell; Jana de Boniface; Robert Mansel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast cancer; sentinel node; micrometastases; survival; non-sentinel node metastases;

    Abstract : The introduction of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has conveyed several new issues, such as the risk of false negativity, long-term consequences, the prognostic significance of micrometastases and whether ALND can be omitted in sentinel lymph node- (SLN) positive patients.Archived SLN specimens from 50 false negative patients and 107 true negative controls were serially sectioned and stained with immunohistochemistry.

  3. 3. Studies on Prediction of Axillary Lymph Node Status in Invasive Breast Cancer

    Author : Johan Ahlgren; Karl von Smitten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Breast cancer; lymph node metastases; prognostic factors; predictive factors; axillary surgery; angiogenesis; immunohistochemistry; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among females in Sweden. Axillary lymph-node dissection is a standard procedure in the management of breast cancer, aiming at obtaining prognostic information for adjuvant therapy decisions. Axillary dissection entails considerable morbidity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modern Staging in Primary Breast Cancer-aspects of micrometastatic disease in bone marrow and molecular profiles in lymph node metastases

    Author : Anna-Karin Falck; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast cancer; biomarker expression; lymph node metastases; relapse; molecular subtype classification; disseminated tumour cells; bone marrow; prognosis; mode of detection;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease with variations in the biological profile and subsequent clinical prognosis. Molecular mechanisms for tumour progression are currently being explored in scientific settings, suggesting parallel evolution of tumour cells at primary and metastatic locations. READ MORE

  5. 5. PET and MRI of Prostate Cancer

    Author : Catrin von Below; Håkan Ahlström; Cecilia Wassberg; Mauritz Waldén; Jens Sörensen; Michael Häggman; Joel Kullberg; Katrine Åhlström Riklund; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common non-skin malignancy of men in developed countries. In spite of treatment with curative intent up to 30-40% of patients have disease recurrence after treatment, resulting from any combination of lymphatic, hematogenous, or contiguous local spread.
