  1. 1. Therapy of neuroendocrine tumors with 177Lu-octreotate - Human tumor cell types and models and optimization of treatment Terapi av neuroendokrina tumörer med 177Lu-octreotate

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Johanna Dalmo; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; somatostatin; radionuclide therapy; receptor up-regulation; RBP; nephrotoxicity;

    Abstract : Neuroendocrine (NE) tumors (NET) have often metastasized at the time of diagnose, which makes it hard to cure patients with NET. Radiolabeled hormone analogues (especially somatostatin analogues, SS) can be used for diagnostics (e.g. 111In-octreotide) and therapy (e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transcriptional regulation of thyroid development possible interplay of endoderm- and mesoderm-derived morphogenetic signals

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Jessica Westerlund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; thyroid; congenital hypothyroidism; dysgenesis; Tbx1; Shh; Isl1; Foxa2; C-cells;

    Abstract : Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) affects 1 in 3000 children and is the major cause of treatable mental retardation. Most cases are due to malformations of the gland, collectively named thyroid dysgenesis. The disease results from defective thyroid organogenesis during embryonic life. READ MORE

  3. 3. Incidence and prognosis of differentiated thyroid cancer in Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

    Author : Catharina Ihre Lundgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Differentiated thyroid cancer; papillary; follicular; nested case-control study; population-based; risk factors; prognosis; survival; TNM.;

    Abstract : Non-medullary differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is a rare disorder but, nevertheless, among the most common cancers in individuals below 40 years of age. DTC consists of papillary (PTC) and follicular (FTC) thyroid cancer. The prognosis is excellent with an overall 10-year survival of 90 %. READ MORE

    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
