  1. 1. Prognostic markers in prostate cancer : studies of a watchful waiting cohort with long follow up

    Author : Andreas Josefsson; Anders Bergh; Pernilla Wikström; Pär Stattin; Anders Bjartell; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; Immunohistochemistry; Prognostic markers; biomarkers; Survival analysis; human; pathology; watchful waiting; tissue micro array; Endoglin; von willebrandt factor; ki67; ki-67; hyaluronan; patologi; Pathology;

    Abstract : Background: Prostate Cancer (PC) is a common and highly variable disease. Using current diagnostic methods, the prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test and histological grading of prostate tissue needle biopsies, it is often difficult to evaluate whether the patient has a PC that requires active treatment or not.

  2. 2. Molecular biological techniques as a tool in diagnostic pathology : Applications in B-cell lymphoproliferative disease, medullary thyroid carcinoma and cervical carcinoma

    Author : Mansour Alemi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; PCR-SSCP; MTC; RET mutation; Lymphoma; HPV; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Identification of malignancy associated with mutations in gene sequences requires detection ofas little as a single base difference. A powerful technique in mutation detection is polymerasechain reaction (PCR) followed by single-strand conformational polymorphism (SSCP) andsequencing. READ MORE

  3. 3. Medin amyloid - a matter close to the heart : Studies on medin amyloid formation and involvement in aortic pathology

    Author : Annika Larsson; Per Westermark; Sari Kiuru-Enari; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Amyloidoses are a group of protein misfolding diseases characterized by deposits of insoluble fibrillar protein aggregates. Medin amyloid, which is the focus of this thesis, appears in the media of the thoracic aorta in nearly all individuals over 50 years. READ MORE

    Abstract : Systemic amyloidoses are a group of lethal diseases where proteins aggregate into fibrillar structures, called amyloid fibrils, that deposits throughout the body. Transthyretin (TTR) causes one type of amyloidosis, in which the aggregates mainly infiltrate nervous and cardiac tissue. READ MORE

  5. 5. Frontotemporal dementia - symptoms and brain pathology

    Abstract : Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the clinical term for a heterogeneous group of dementia disorders with symptoms emerging from frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). FTD encompasses the behavioural variant (bvFTD) and the progressive aphasias: progressive non-fluent aphasia (PNFA) and semantic dementia (SD). READ MORE
