  1. 1. Epidemiology, diagnostics and treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers

    Author : Oscar Zaar; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pain; non-melanoma skin cancer; basal cell carcinoma; merkel cell carcinoma; Bowen’s disease; imaging mass spectrometry; lipidomics; photodynamic therapy;

    Abstract : Skin cancer, including malignant melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), is a growing problem due to the increasing incidence in Sweden and in other Caucasian populations. NMSCs are diagnosed as often as all other cancers combined and include basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), precursors to SCC such as Bowen’s disease (BD) and actinic keratosis (AK), as well as several rare skin cancers including Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).

  2. 2. Studies on polyomaviruses in humans : In relation to haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Géraldine Giraud; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The simultaneous discovery of two polyomaviruses in humans in 1971, BK and JC viruses (BKV and JCV), initiated the research on polyomaviruses in relation to human diseases. This has now been intensified with the consecutive discoveries, the last three years, of three new family members, KI, WU and Merkel cell polyomaviruses (KIPyV, WUPyV and MCPyV). READ MORE

  3. 3. Endocrine tumour development : With special focus on chromosome arms 1p and 11q

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

    Author : Brita Nord; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]

    Abstract : The overall goal of this thesis has been to characterise the involvement of chromosome arms 1p and 11 q in the development of endocrine tumours. The MEN1 gene was analysed as a candidate tumour suppressor gene by screening for mutations in follicular thyroid tumours, malignant melanomas, pheochromocytomas, and abdominal paragangliomas.
