    Sammanfattning : Radioresistance, the failure to achieve a desired outcome, is an obstacle in clinical radiotherapy. In this thesis we investigate factors affecting radioresistance and strategies to overcome it, both with established clinical approaches and by using novel pre-clinical discoveries. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Improved cancer survival with use of common antihistamines. Epidemiological studies on the use of H1-antihistamines and survival in cancer

    Författare :Ildikó Fritz; LUCC - Lunds universitets cancercentrum; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; histamine H1 antagonists; histamine antagonists; chemotherapy; immunotherapy;

    Sammanfattning : Cancer often results from chronic inflammation, and anti-inflammatory medications are therefore potential candidates for drug repurposing for cancer therapy. H2-antihistamines such as cimetidine have long been studied for their promise as cancer medications, but H1-antihistamines have thus far not been studied widely for this purpose. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Physical activity and breast cancer. Risk, survival and perceived energy

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical activity; occupational sedentariness; Breast cancer; exercise;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Physical activity and avoidance of sedentariness do enhance health in women with breast cancer, and could even reduce the risk of developing the disease. One aim of this thesis was to elucidate the association between sedentariness and breast cancer risk in women as a whole, and then separately for those younger than 55 years old and those 55 years or older.
