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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Andreas Josefsson; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : 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. Role of Wnt5a in Prostate Cancer

    University dissertation from Division of Urological Cancers

    Author : Azharuddin Sajid Syed Khaja; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate Cancer; Wnt5a; tissue micro array; Biochemical recurrence; Gene fusions;

    Abstract : Wnt5a is a non-canonical secreted glycoprotein of the Wnt family that plays important roles in organ development and tissue orientation. Previous studies have reported that Wnt5a was upregulated at both mRNA and protein levels in prostate cancer, but information regarding its role in predicting clinical outcome in patients after radical prostatectomy is limited.

    Abstract : Non-small cell lung carcinoma is a leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. There are gender and smoking associated differences both in tumour types and clinical outcome. Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are more frequent among smoking men while females develop adenocarcinomas (ADCA). READ MORE

    Abstract : Hypoxia Inducible Factor-1α in Renal Cell CarcinomaDepartments of Surgical and Perioperative Sciences, Urology and Andrology; Radiation Sciences, Oncology; Medical Biosciences, Pathology; and Medical Biosciences, Clinical Chemistry, Umeå University, Umeå, SwedenBackground: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for approximately 2-3% of all human cancers. A distinguished feature of RCC is vascularisation and among the three dominating RCC types conventional RCC (cRCC) generally is more vascularised than papillary RCC (pRCC) and chromophobe RCC (chRCC).
