  1. 1. Registry-Based Studies in Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in Sweden : Survival and Quality of Life

    Författare :Emma Bergfelt Lennmyr; Helene Hallböök; Martin Höglund; Jan Maxwell Nørgaard; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia; Philadelphia Chromosome; Overall Survival; Population-based; Quality Registry; Relapse; Patient-Reported Outcome; Health-Related Quality of Life; Depression;

    Sammanfattning : Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a common child malignancy, also constitutes a minor fraction of adult cancer with approximately 50 new cases per year in Sweden. While the five-year overall survival (OS) in pediatric ALL is more than 90%, the prognosis in adults is dismal. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Background: Morale is a multidimensional concept, often defined as a future-oriented optimism or pessimism regarding the problems and opportunities associated with ageing. Very old people, older than 80 years, constitute an age group that is expected to increase in Europe from 4.7% of the general population today to 12. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Stress susceptibility, beta-blocker use and cancer survival

    Författare :Ruzan Udumyan; Katja Fall; Scott Montgomery; Fang Fang; Edoardo Botteri; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stress resilience; β-blockers; primary cancer; survival analysis; overall mortality; cancer-specific mortality; register-based cohort study;

    Sammanfattning : Accumulating evidence suggests that chronic stress may influence tumour biology through activation of neuroendocrine pathways and thus impair survival. However, measuring stressful exposures and their influence on health is challenging, partly due to substantial inter-individual variation in stress susceptibility. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mortality and survival from childhood to old age in rural Ethiopia

    Författare :Mesganaw Fantahun; Ulf Högberg; Stig Wall; Peter Byass; Yemane Berhane; Thorkild Tylleskär; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mortality; survival; children; adults; elderly; cause of death; determinants; Ethiopia; Epidemiology; Epidemiologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examines ways of establishing cause of death, assessing trends in mortality, and identifying factors that affect mortality and survival among the different population groups in rural and semi-urban Ethiopia. These data are important for health care planning; however, such vital data are unavailable in many developing countries. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Loco-regional Treatment of Peritoneal Carcinomatosis: Survival, Morbidity and Quality of Life

    Författare :Johan Hansson; Haile Mahteme; Wilhelm Graf; Peter Nygren; Peter Naredi; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) is traditionally regarded as a terminal stage of disease with a poor prognosis and systemic chemotherapy is regarded as palliative treatment. In order to improve survival and even to achieve cure for selected patients with PC, cytoreductive surgery and intraperitoneal che-motherapy have been advocated. LÄS MER
