1. Studies on the effect of ErbB tyrosine kinase inhibitors on malignant melanoma growth and survival in vitro
Sammanfattning : Malignant melanoma has one of the fastest increasing incidences among the different types of cancerin the Western world. This raise can partly be ascribed to the change in sun habits that has takenplace during the last decades, since the major external risk factor for melanoma is exposure toultraviolet radiation.

2. Nucleoside analoge cytotoxicity-focus on enzyme regulation, metabolism, and mechanisms of resistance
Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to determine the role of nucleoside analog activating and deactivating enzymes in nucleoside analog metabolism and resistance development. Nucleoside analogs are anti-cancer drogs and are often used to treat different leukemias, attributably to presence of high levels of nucleoside analog activating enzymes in hematopoietic cells.

3. Pharmacogenetic Studies of Paclitaxel in Ovarian Cancer : focus on interindividual differences in pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
Sammanfattning : Ovarian cancer is one of the most common female cancer diseases in the world today and in Sweden more than 800 new cases are diagnosed every year. The standard treatment consists of chemotherapy with paclitaxel in combination with carboplatin after initial cytoreductive surgery. LÄS MER
4. Pharmacogenetic studies in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia with primary focus on methotrexate
Sammanfattning : Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia is the most common type of cancer in children. Improvement in treatment has increased survival to approximately 85 per cent. LÄS MER
5. Interindividual differences in thiopurine metabolism : studies with focus on inflammatory bowel disease
Sammanfattning : The thiopurines, 6-mercaptopurine and its prodrug azathioprine, are used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis and Crohn´s disease. The main active metabolites are the phosphorylated thioguanine nucleotides (6-TGNs) and methylated thioinosine monophosphate (meTIMP). LÄS MER
