  1. 1. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy in muscle-invasive urinary bladder cancer : studies on treatment response, tumor draining lymph nodes and blood transfusion

    Author : Robert Rosenblatt; Amir Sherif; Ola Winqvist; Per Marits; Ralph Peeker; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bladder cancer; neoadjuvant chemotherapy; tumor downstaging; sentinel nodes; blood transfusion; Urology; kirurgi; särskilt urologi; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Muscle-invasive urinary bladder cancer is a deadly disease. Mortality rates remained unchanged for decades despite radical surgery.After several randomized trials, we today know that cisplatin based chemotherapy given prior to cystectomy, improves survival for every tenth patient.

    Abstract : Cancer of the urinary organs is one of the more common cancer forms in Sweden, with bladder cancer as the fourth most common cancer among men, and the seventh most common among women. The bladder cancer incidence is rising with age and is seldom seen before 50 years of age. READ MORE

    Abstract : Approximately 2 300 new cases of urinary bladder carcinoma (UBC) are diagnosed every year in Sweden. This type of cancer is characterized as a long-standing disease with a high risk of recurrence and progression from an indolent to a more aggressive course. READ MORE

  4. 4. The prognostic significance of uPA, uPAR an d the cytokine IL-1-alpha in urinary bladder cancer

    Abstract : Tumor invasion and metastasis are the major causes of cancer-related death. Proteases are important for the invasive and metastatic propensities of tumors. We have studied the mechanism underlying endogenous expression of the serine protease urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) by human breast cancer cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immunological analysis of the human tumor cell surface : characterization of polypeptides associated with urinary bladder carcinoma

    Author : Staffan Paulie; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Tumors express antigens characteristic of their malignant phenotype, a fact that has become exploited for the diagnosis of certain types of cancer. As these tumor-associated antigens (TAA) may also provide Information on the molecular mechanisms of tumorogenesls as well as constituting the basis for immunotherapeutlc approaches, much Interest has been focused on the Identification and characterization of TAAs.
