    Sammanfattning : In Sweden approximately 2800 new lung cancer patients are diagnosed every year. Radiotherapy is used with curative intention in certain groups of patients. The aim of this thesis is to study the basis of differences in radioresistance and the possibility to predict response to radiotherapy. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :Malignant melanoma; prognostic factors; survival; chemotherapy; radiation;

    Sammanfattning : Because of the failure so far to find effective treatment for patients with advanced stages of melanoma, increasing efforts have been made to find prognostic factors identifying patients in the risk zone for development of metastasis.This thesis investigates the prognostic powers of a few selected serological and immunohistochemical biomarkers.

    Nyckelord :Oncology; Esophageal carcinoma; Survival; Prognosis; Angiogenesis; HER-2; Telomerase; FMCA; HPV; Onkologi;

    Sammanfattning : Esophageal carcinoma is a malignancy with a poor prognosis and is the sixth cause of cancer related death worldwide. In Sweden approximately 400 new cases are diagnosed every year. The aim of this present thesis was to investigate predictive factors for esophageal carcinoma patients. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Prognostic Factors in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

    Författare :Georg Holgersson; Stefan Bergström; Michael Bergqvist; Simon Ekman; Fredrik Pontén; Henrik Riska; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NSCLC; prognostic factors; survival; histology; anemia; leukocytosis; thrombocytosis; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the cancer disease with the highest mortality globally. About 75% of NSCLC patients are diagnosed in an advanced stage where surgical treatment is not possible. For patients with locally advanced disease without distant metastases, the treatment of choice is curatively intended radiotherapy. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Prognostic Biomarkers and Target Proteins for Treatment of High-grade Gliomas

    Författare :Linda Sooman; Simon Ekman; Johan Lennartsson; Joachim Gullbo; Michael Bergqvist; Erik Blomquist; Stefan Bergström; Beatrice Melin; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The survival for high-grade glioma patients is poor and the treatment may cause severe side effects. A common obstacle in the treatment is chemoresistance. To improve the quality of life and prolong survival for these patients prognostic biomarkers and new approaches for chemotherapy are needed. LÄS MER
