1. Androgen controlled regulatory systems in prostate cancer : potential new therapeutic targets and prognostic markers
Sammanfattning : BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer is by far the most common cancer among Swedish men. Some patients have an aggressive lethal disease, but the majority of affected men have long expected survival. Unfortunately, the diagnostic tools available are insufficient in predicting disease aggressiveness. Novel prognostic markers are therefore urgently needed. LÄS MER
2. Prostate cancer aetiology : epidemiological studies of the IGF- and one-carbon metabolism pathways
Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the involvement of the insulin-like growth factor- and the one-carbon metabolism pathways in prostate cancer aetiology, studying both circulating biomarkers and genetic variation. Papers included in the thesis were conducted within the case-control study CAncer Prostate in Sweden (CAPS), and the two prospective studies European Prospective Investigation into nutrition and Cancer (EPIC), and Northern Sweden Health and Disease Cohort (NSHDC).

Sammanfattning : The skeleton is the most common site of prostate cancer bone metastasis, and at present, there are no curable treatments for these patients. To further understand what stimulates tumor cell growth in the bone microenvironment and to find suitable therapies, reliable model systems are needed. LÄS MER
