  1. 1. Molecular Genetic Alterations In Endometrial And Ovarian Cancers

    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

  2. 2. Ovarian cancer : Treatment results, prognostic factors, and tumor marker surveillance

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Författare :Thomas Högberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1992]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The total population-based material of 426 ovarian malignancies in the Southeast Health Care Region of Sweden during 1984-1987 was surveyed. It seems that with a program of cytoreductive surgery followed by a cisplatinum chemotherapy combination in the metastasizing cases the overall survival figures have improved. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Tumors associated with Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer: Defective Mismatch Repair and Familial Risk of Cancer

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

    Författare :Kajsa Ericson Lindquist; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer; Multiple Tumors; Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer; Cytology; Cohort study; Population based; Familial Risk of Cancer; Immunohistochemistry; MSH2; MSH6; MLH1; Microsatellite Instability; Soft Tissue Sarcomas; Cancer of the Upper Urinary Tract; Cancer of the Small Intestine; Colorectal Cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Inactivation of the DNA mismatch repair (MMR) system is a tumorigenic mechanism involved in 15-20% of tumor types such as colorectal and endometrial cancer and is specifically associated with the Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) syndrome. These MMR defective tumors are characterized by microsatellite instability (MSI), a phenomenon that reflects alterations in length of repeated sequences, and 90% of MSI tumors show loss of immunohistochemical expression for the MMR protein affected.

  4. 4. Hunting a Silent Killer. Biomolecular Approaches in Ovarian Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Nicolai Arildsen; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ovarian cancer; Molecular biology; genetic variant; TP53 mutation; early detection; Drug Screening Assays; Antitumor; bioinformatics; next generation sequencing; NGS; prognostic and predictive biomarkers; ovarian clear cell cancer; high-grade serous ovarian cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Ovarian cancer is a heterogeneous disease and recent advances in improving patient outcome havebeen limited. It is estimated that a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer during her lifetime is about 1 in 70, making it a frequently occurring cancer type in women. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Clinical Aspects of Hereditary Breast Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Niklas Loman, Dept of Oncology, Lund University Hospital SE-211 85 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Niklas Loman; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer; Cytologi; onkologi; cancerology; oncology; Cytology; Age of onset; Survival analysis; Incidence; Male breast cancer; Steroid receptors; BRCA2; BRCA1; Breast cancer; hereditary;

    Sammanfattning : A positive family history of breast cancer (BC) is one of the strongest predictors of the disease. Two major BC susceptibility genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2 were identified about a decade ago. In this thesis, studies of different biological. clinical and epidemiological aspects of hereditary BC are presented. LÄS MER
