Sammanfattning : Malignant melanoma accounts for the highest number of deaths among all skin cancer types, and its incidence has increased dramatically over the past decades. Despite the tremendous therapeutic advances, treatment resistant cells emerge in the vast heterogeneity of melanoma, driving tumor relapse and poor patient outcome. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) is one of the most aggressive skin malignancies with poor prognosisfor the patients with metastatic disease. Earlier studies have highlighted the existing molecular diversityamongst CMM tumors. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cutaneous interfollicular melanocytes protect the skin from UV-radiation (UVR), and their response to UVR is well established. To date, the response activated in melanocytes by repeated genotoxic insults from radiotherapy (RT) has not been explored. LÄS MER
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.
