  2. 2. Meta-analysis of randomized clinical evidence of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and endocrine therapy in breast cancer

    University dissertation from Kreta, Greece : University of Crete

    Author : Antonis Valachis; Örebro universitet.; Region Örebro län.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Breast cancer; Meta -analysis; Bisphosphonates; Bevacizumab; Trastuzumab; Fulvestrant;

    Abstract :  Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in females worldwide. Despite the growing body of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) regarding the use of various treatment strategies (chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, radiotherapy) in breast cancer, the efficacy of some strategies remains unclear and questionable.

  3. 3. Novel methods for dose-response meta-analysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Public Health Sciences

    Author : Alessio Crippa; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Dose–response meta-analysis is a statistical procedure for combining and contrasting the evidence on the association between a continuous exposure and the risk of a health outcome. Different papers refined selected aspects of the methodology, such as implementation of flexible strategies and extensions to multivariate meta-analysis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evolutionary consequences of maternal effects and stress

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; parental effects; meta-analysis; development time; bet-hedging; brain size; evolutionary potential; unpredictable environments; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : Maternal effects occur when maternal environment or phenotype influence offspring phenotype, in addition to genetic contribution of the mother. As maternal effects often influence phenotypes that are under natural selection, they hence have evolutionary consequences. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigation of the origin of the coronary artery calcification process and its relationship to the atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : George Koulaouzidis; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Coronary artery calcification; ethnicity; South Asians; Caucasians; reproducibility; aortic valve calcification; mitral valve calcification; family history of coronary artery disease; natural history; coronary artery calcium score; meta-analysis;

    Abstract : The objectives of this thesis are: a) To examine racial/ethnic differences in coronary artery calcification (CAC) and CAD, between symptomatic South Asians and Caucasians, matched for age, gender and conventional cardiovascular risk factors, b) To assess, using a meta-analysis model, the natural history of and stability of measurements of coronary artery calcium scoring (CACs) based on data collected from two large published trials: St Francis and EBEAT, c) To investigate the prevalence of coronary artery calcification in individuals with CT evidence for AVC, mitral valve calcification (MAC) or of both of them (AVC+MAC), d) To assess any potential association between premature CAD (<55 years in first-degree male relatives and <65 years in first-degree female relatives) and CAC in a large cohort of asymptomatic individuals.We found that coronary artery calcification is more extensive and diffuse in symptomatic patients of South Asian ethnic origin as compared to Caucasians, despite similar conventional risk factors for CAD.
