Sammanfattning : Monoclonal antibodies generated by immunization with human adrenocortical cells reacted with the normal adrenal cortex, adrenocortical adenomas and carcinomas, but failed to stain a variety of normal tissues, renal cell carcinoma, and pheocromocytomas. The antibodies can be used to improve histological diagnosis and characterization of human adrenal lesions, and possibly for scintigraphic detection. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : An adrenocortical tumour (ACT) can be detected in up to 5% of the population older than 50 years of age. The frequency increases with age. More ACTs are being detected in parallel with the increased use of high-resolution imaging. LÄS MER

4. Intraoperative scintigraphic detection of abdominal endocrine tumors : Development and evaluation of hand held gamma sensitive probes for¹¹¹In
Sammanfattning : Surgery of endocrine tumors benefit from accurate pre and- intraoperative localization methods,and scintigraphy has become an important contribution in this respect. In the present thesis therequisites for scintigraphic localization of abdominal endocrine tumors and new detectors forintraoperative gammadetection are evaluated. LÄS MER
5. In Vitro Studies of Adrenocorticolytic DDT Metabolites, with Special Focus on 3-methylsulfonyl-DDE
Sammanfattning : The DDT metabolite 3-methylsulfonyl-DDE (3-MeSO2-DDE) is bioactivated by cytochrome P450 11B1 (CYP11B1) in the adrenal cortex of mice and forms irreversibly bound protein adducts, reduces glucocorticoid secretion, and induces cell death selectively in cortisol-producing adrenocortical cells. 3-MeSO2-DDE has therefore been proposed as a lead compound for an improved adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) therapy.
