  1. 1. Register studies of cancer in the Southern Health Care Region in Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Cancer Epidemiology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Bo Attner; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cancer risk; epidemiology; incidence; comorbidity; survival; partner; health care costs; population-based register study;

    Abstract : The overall aim was to study different aspect of health care use and health care costs on a population based level for persons with cancer and their partners, and from an individual level to explore the impact of comorbidities in incidence and survival. In the beginning of the study all persons in the Southern Health Care Region in Sweden diagnosed with colon, rectal, breast, prostate and lung cancer during the period 2000 to 2005 were identified via the Swedish Cancer Register.

  2. 2. Metastatic Breast Cancer: Biomolecular Characterization and Targeted Therapy

    University dissertation from Oncology, MV

    Author : Siker Kimbung; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Metastatic breast cancer; biomarker conversion; liver metastasis-selective genes; prognosis; BRCA1; PARP1;

    Abstract : Metastasis is a complex process that remains a major challenge in the clinical management of cancer, because most cancer-related deaths are attributed to disseminated disease rather than the primary tumor. Despite the significant advances in the prediction of prognosis, and therapeutic management of primary breast cancers, coupled with the substantial improvement in our understanding of the molecular determinants of metastasis, breast cancer relapse and death rates remain unacceptably high.

  3. 3. Strategies for optimisation of 177Lu-octreotate therapy – exploring local administration and combination therapy regimens

    University dissertation from Oncology, MV

    Author : Viktor Sandblom; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy; PRRT; 177Lu-octreotate; Neuroendocrine tumours; Optimisation; Local administration; Combination therapy;

    Abstract : Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are a group of heterogeneous tumour types that originate in hormone-producing organs. Patients with NETs are often diagnosed after the primary tumour has metastasised. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dosimetric effects of breathing motion in radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Medical Radiation Physics

    Author : Anneli Edvardsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018-09]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; radiotherapy; breathing motion; DIBH; interplay effects; VMAT; proton therapy; breast cancer; Hodgkin’s lymphoma; liver; dosimetry; treatment planning; medical physics;

    Abstract : The goal of radiotherapy is to deliver a homogeneous high dose of radiation to a tumour while minimising the dose to the surrounding healthy tissue. To achieve this, increasingly advanced treatment techniques, such as volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and proton therapy, have been developed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of normal and cancer cells as a base for cell cycle-targeted therapy

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Regina Miftakhova; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell cycle regulation; cyclin A1; stem cells; stem cell niche; epigenetics; cancer;

    Abstract : The majority of current treatments used for treatment of prostate cancer (PCa) and leukemia are often limited to a narrow subsets of treated patients. As such, there still remains a significant scope for gaining deeper understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying cancer metastasis for improvement of targeted treatment. READ MORE
