  1. 1. Prognostic Factors in Malignant Melanoma

    Author : Åsa Bolander; Michael Bergqvist; Simon Ekman; Anders Larsson; Daniel Brattström; Gunnar Wagenius; Torgny Rasmuson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Malignant melanoma; prognostic factors; survival; chemotherapy; radiation;

    Abstract : Because of the failure so far to find effective treatment for patients with advanced stages of melanoma, increasing efforts have been made to find prognostic factors identifying patients in the risk zone for development of metastasis.This thesis investigates the prognostic powers of a few selected serological and immunohistochemical biomarkers.

    Abstract : The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma has increased dramatically in Caucasians the last few decades, an increase that is partly explained by altered sun exposure habits. For the individual patient, with a localized disease, the tumor thickness of the excised lesion is the most important prognostic factor. READ MORE

    Abstract : The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) is steadily increasing. Most of the patients have thin CMM with a good prognosis and a 5-year survival of about 90%. The prognosis is highly related to tumour thickness and clinical stage at diagnosis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Isolated regional perfusion for metastases of malignant melanoma - Clinical and experimental studies

    Author : Roger Olofsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Malignant melanoma; Uveal melanoma; Isolated limb perfusion; Isolated hepatic perfusion; Immunology; Exosomes;

    Abstract : Background: Isolated regional perfusion is a treatment option mainly for localized metastatic disease. The principle idea is to surgically isolate a region of the body and connect the circulation to a heart-lung machine. A high concentration of a chemotherapeutic agent is then delivered to the tumour, while systemic toxicity is avoided. READ MORE
