Sammanfattning : Oestrogen is one of the most important hormonal regulators and is known to play a key role in the development and growth of breast cancer. The majority of tumours have a hormone dependent growth, and this is indicated by the presence of oestrogen receptors (ERs). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : It is well-known that a majority of breast cancers are hormone-dependent, making endocrine therapy an important adjuvant treatment after surgery. Susceptibility to endocrine treatment is determined by the presence of estrogen receptors (ER) and progesterone receptors (PR) in the tumors. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis were to investigate the long-term effects of adjuvant tamoxifen treatment on breast cancer recurrence and mortality, cardiovascular disease, and the incidence of secondary cancer.Between 1982 and 1992, postmenopausal patients with early stage breast cancer were included in a randomized clinical study of 2 or 5 years of postoperative tamoxifen therapy.

4. Cell cycle deregulation in breast cancer subgroups and effects on proliferation, migration and tamoxifen resistance
Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is a heterogenous disease which can be divided in subgroups of distinct biology with disparate prognosis and response to treatment. The overall aim of this thesis was to delineate subgroup specific behaviour in breast cancer cells with focus on proliferation, migration and stem-like cell activity. LÄS MER
5. Predicting Prognosis and Tamoxifen Response in Breast Cancer. With a special focus on contralateral breast cancer
Sammanfattning : One of the great challenges in breast cancer treatment today is to customize adjuvant treatment to each patient’s individual needs. To do this it is necessary to learn more about the prognostic and treatment predictive factors that determine the risk of relapse and response to a certain mode of treatment. LÄS MER
