    Abstract : Head and neck cancer is the fifth most common cancer worldwide with an estimated annual global incidence of over 500 000 cases. These malignant tumours develop in the mucosal linings of the upper respiratory tract or in the salivary glands. The most common sites are in the oral cavity and larynx. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tumour Targeting Using Radiolabelled EGF Conjugates : Preclinical Studies

    Author : Åsa Liljegren Sundberg; Jörgen Carlsson; Lars Gedda; Vladimir Tolmachev; Erik Blomquist; Gregory P. Adams; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiation sciences; targeting; tumour; EGF; radionuclide; gefitinib; Iressa; ZD1839; glioma; therapy; diagnostics; Strålningsvetenskap; Radiation biology; Strålningsbiologi;

    Abstract : Tumour targeted radiotherapy is an appealing approach for treatment of disseminated tumour cells. A targeting agent that specifically binds to a structure on tumour cells is then used to transport therapeutically relevant radionuclides. The epidermal growth factor receptor, EGFR, is overexpressed on tumour cells in several malignancies, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Laparoscopy and tumour growth : a clinical and experimental study
