  2. 2. Towards Novel Biomarkers for Low-grade Glioma

    Författare :Shala Ghaderi Berntsson; Anja Smits; Peter Siesjö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Low-grade glioma; prognosis; epilepsy; PROX1; DNA repair enzyme; PET; Physiological MRI; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Gliomas are common primary brain tumours that occur as low-grade (LGG) and high-grade gliomas (HGG). Typically occurring in younger adults, LGG has an indolent course with a median survival of 5-10 years, but carries an inherent potential for transforming into HGG. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Glioneuronal tumours in childhood : Clinical picture, long-term outcome and possible new treatments

    Författare :Christoffer Ehrstedt; Gunnar Ahlsten; Bo Strömberg; Ann-Margret Rydell; Anja Smits; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glioneuronal tumour; ganglioglioma; dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumour; childhood; cognition; psychosocial; HRQoL; outcome; mTOR pathway; somatostatin receptor; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Glioneuronal tumours are a subgroup of low-grade tumours of the central nervous system (CNS), often causing epilepsy. Overall survival is excellent, but data regarding long-term seizure outcome and late effects are scarce. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Cognitive Deficits Reflecting Diffuse and Focal Brain Lesions Caused by Slow Growing Brain Tumors - Low-grade Gliomas

    Författare :Lena Ek; Ove Almkvist; Anja Smits; Hans Samuelsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Cognition; low-grade glioma; brain tumor; diffuse brain injury; neuropsychological tests; Psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : The overall purpose was to characterize the impact that low-grade glioma (LGG) – a type of slowly growing brain tumor – has on cognitive functions. Paper I was an in-depth analysis of cognitive dysfunction of patients with histological proven LGG. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Preoperative MRI and PET in suspected low-grade gliomas : Radiological, neuropathological and clinical intersections

    Författare :Anna Falk Delgado; Elna-Marie Larsson; Anja Smits; Jens Sörensen; John Hald; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Low-grade glioma; MRI; PET; FA; MD; Perfusion; Diffusion; Neuropathology; Oligodendroglioma; Astrocytoma; PET; tractography; DTI; DTT; Radiologi; Radiology;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Gliomas are neuroepithelial tumours classified by cell type and grade. In adults, low-grade gliomas are comprised mainly of astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas grade II. LÄS MER
