    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine Doctoral Dissertation

    Författare :Britta Halvarsson; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi; Lynch syndrome; Colorectal tumors; HNPCC; Mismatch repaire; pathological anatomy; General pathology; Genetik; cytogenetik; cytogenetics; Genetics; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Immunohistochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Corlorectal cancer affects 5% of individuals in the Western world and heredity is estimated to cause at least 10% of the tumors. Defective mismatch repair (MMR) is a tumorigenic mechanism through which about 15% of colorectal cancer develops and this feature characterizes tumors associated with Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) or Lynch syndrome.

  3. 3. Genomic Profiling, Mutations and Deranged Signaling in Esophageal Cancer and Hereditary Colorectal Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Anna Isinger Ekstrand; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Esophageal cancer; hereditary cancer; HNPCC; copy number analysis; CGH; gene expression; Wnt; PIK3CA; CHEK2; gastric cancer; colorectal cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Esophageal cancer and colorectal cancer represents two major types of gastrointestinal tumors. Though refined surgery and introduction of novel chemotherapeutics have improved outcome, more than 2500 Swedes die from these diseases every year. Novel markers for early diagnosis, prognosis and treatment prediction are therefore needed. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Lynch syndrome (Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer, HNPCC) is the most common hereditary syndrome predisposing to colorectal cancer, accounting for 1-3% of all colorectal cancer. This multi-organ cancer predisposition syndrome is caused by mutations in the mismatch repair (MMR) genes, especially MLH1 and MSH2, and to lesser extents MSH6 and PMS2, which lead to widespread genetic instability and thus microsatellite instability (MSI).

    Sammanfattning : Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major public health problem in Western countries, and it is the third leading cause of death from cancer in both males and females. Inherited predisposition can be divided into two subgroups based on the absence or the presence of multiple benign colorectal polyps. LÄS MER
