    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Oncology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Anjila Koul; [2001]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; KRAS; PTEN; TP53; Overexpression; Mutation; Microsatellite instability; Complex atypical hyperplasia; Endometrial cancer; Ovarian cancer; cancer; onkologi; Cytologi; cancerology; oncology; Cytology; CNS metastasis; Cytogenetic analysis; BRCA2; BRCA1; B-catenin; CDKN2A;

    Sammanfattning : Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological cancer diagnosed in western countries. Complex atypical hyperplasia (CAH) reflects a state of hyperestrinism and its role as a precursor lesion of this cancer is established. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Ovarian cancer is a leading cause of gynecological cancer death and in Sweden nearly 700 cases are diagnosed annually. Ovarian cancer has one of the highest frequencies of hereditary cancer. LÄS MER

  3. 13. Hereditary Breast Cancer in South Sweden. Early findings from studies on the role of BRCA1

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Oncology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Oskar Thor Johannsson; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; survival analysis; CGH; mRNA in situ hybridization; germline mutations; LOH; Breast neoplasm; BRCA1; Cytology; oncology; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis presents the results from investigations into the role of BRCA1 in hereditary cancer in South Sweden. Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) studies found loss of the wildtype allele of BRCA1 to be common in BRCA1 associated breast cancer, but due to the high degree of LOH on chr. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is based on research concerning epidemiological, clinical, and psychological aspects of familial and hereditary prostate cancer. Epidemiology: Male first-degree relatives of prostate cancer patients had a three-fold increased prostate cancer risk. LÄS MER

  5. 15. Genetic variation and prostate cancer population-based association studies in Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Strålningsvetenskaper

    Författare :Sara Lindström; Henrik Grönberg; Fredrik Wiklund; John Todd; [2007]
