1. Tumors associated with Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer: Defective Mismatch Repair and Familial Risk of CancerDetta är en avhandling från Department of Oncology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University
Sammanfattning : Inactivation of the DNA mismatch repair (MMR) system is a tumorigenic mechanism involved in 15-20% of tumor types such as colorectal and endometrial cancer and is specifically associated with the Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) syndrome. These MMR defective tumors are characterized by microsatellite instability (MSI), a phenomenon that reflects alterations in length of repeated sequences, and 90% of MSI tumors show loss of immunohistochemical expression for the MMR protein affected.

Sammanfattning : In a retrospective study, Escherichia coli isolates from 88 men with symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI) were analysed. A wide array of O:K:H serotypes commonly associated with acute pyelonephritis in women were identified. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER
4. The role of telomerase reverse transcriptase in human malignancies : genetic polymorphisms and promoter mutationsDetta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna
Sammanfattning : Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein with its catalytic subunit telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) as a key component, lengthening telomeres. In differentiated human cells, telomerase is silent due to the transcriptional repression of the TERT gene, but activated in oncogenesis. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Familial aggregation of cancer may be due either to environmental factors shared by family members, or to shared genes. Familial clustering has been an avenue to the understanding of the etiology of cancer and has been a basis for clinical decisions and counseling, as well as guiding the identification of cancer-related genes.
