    Sammanfattning : The use of positron emission tomography (PET) for imaging in oncology has grown rapidly in recent years. 2-[18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is the most common tracer of PET, although drawbacks exist. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Quality improvement in palliative care the role of a national quality register and perceptions of information during palliative chemotherapy

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Lisa Martinsson; Bertil Axelsson; Christina Melin-Johansson; Per Fransson; Kerstin Sandelin; [2015]

    Sammanfattning : IntroductionThere is a need in palliative care for development of structured methods to assess quality and support improvement. This need is present both within and outside specialised palliative care.Honest information from physicians is regarded as an important part of palliative care. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Copy Number Analysis of Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Markus Mayrhofer; Anders Isaksson; Simon Tavaré; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chromosomes; oncology; bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Bioinformatics; Oncology; Onkologi; Clinical Genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : By accurately describing cancer genomes, we may link genomic mutations to phenotypic effects and eventually treat cancer patients based on the molecular cause of their disease, rather than generalizing treatment based on cell morphology or tissue of origin.Alteration of DNA copy number is a driving mutational process in the formation and progression of cancer.

  4. 4. Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas Studies of Treatment, FDG-PET Evaluation and Prognostic Factors

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Magdalena Adde; Gunilla Enblad; Hans Hagberg; Anna Laurell; Tor Ekman; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Sammanfattning : To improve outcome in young, high-risk lymphoma patients, treatment was intensified, adding etoposide and rituximab to standard CHOP treatment. Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) enabled treatment bi-weekly. Results were promising: overall (OS) and event-free survival (EFS) 79% and 60% respectively, median follow up 27 months.

  5. 5. Studies on Prediction of Axillary Lymph Node Status in Invasive Breast Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Johan Ahlgren; Karl von Smitten; [2002]

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among females in Sweden. Axillary lymph-node dissection is a standard procedure in the management of breast cancer, aiming at obtaining prognostic information for adjuvant therapy decisions. Axillary dissection entails considerable morbidity. LÄS MER
