  1. 1. Prognostic factors in prostate cancer with special reference to the effect of hormonal therapy

    Author : Göran Ahlgren; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urology; neuroendocrine differentiation; tumour cell proliferation; DNA-ploidy; prostate cancer; prognostic factors; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi;

    Abstract : We have used image cell analysis to analyse nuclear DNA content on fine needle aspiration biopsies from 96 patients diagnosed to have prostate cancer 1980-81. By stratifying diploid and tetraploid tumours according to a cytometric proliferation index (PI), we suggest a new DNA-classification that is prognostic of death from prostate cancer in multivariate analysis including conventional prognostic factors.

  2. 2. Diagnostic and prognostic value of proteinuria in chronic renal diseases

    Author : Omran Bakoush; Njurmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urology; Hypertension.; Glomerulonephritis; IgM; Albuminuria; Diabetic Nephropathy; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi;

    Abstract : To the extent that increased urinary protein excretion is an indicator of alterations of the glomerular capillary wall (GCW) and appearance of tubulointerstitial damage, proteinuria can be a good marker of the overall severity of the glomerular and tubulointerstitial damage, and therefore, the prognosis of glomerular diseases. Studies I, II, and III show that it is the type of proteinuria, rather than the degree of albuminuria, that predicts the progression in renal, proteinuric diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Metabolism of free and complexed prostate - specific antigen and their utility for diagnosis and prognosis of prostate cancer

    Author : Thomas Björk; Malmö Urologisk cancerforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; benign prostatic hyperplasia; alpha-1-antichymotrypsin; PSA; prostate cancer; prostate-specific antigen; Urology; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi;

    Abstract : Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a glycoprotein produced by the prostate gland. It occurs in several molecular forms in the blood and assays have been developed to measure free PSA and PSA in complex with alpha-1-antichymotrypsin (PSA-ACT). READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis is based on research concerning epidemiological, clinical, and psychological aspects of familial and hereditary prostate cancer. Epidemiology: Male first-degree relatives of prostate cancer patients had a three-fold increased prostate cancer risk. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental Bladder Reconstruction

    Author : Hans Frederiksen; Urologi; []

    Abstract : Reduced urinary bladder capacity is a clinically significant problem. The surgical methods that have been available to treat this, such as urinary diversion or surgically augmenting the bladder by incorporation of intestinal segments, all have serious drawbacks. READ MORE
