  1. 1. The role of RNA-binding motif 3 in epithelial ovarian cancer: A biomarker discovery approach

    Författare :Åsa Ehlén; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA integrity checkpoint; cisplatin treatment; prognostic predictive marker; RBM3; epithelial ovarian cancer; Chk1; Chk2; MCM3;

    Sammanfattning : Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the most lethal of all gynaecological malignancies and there is an urgent need to develop new prognostic and treatment predictive biomarkers for a more efficient therapy. The discovery of the RNA-binding motif protein 3 (RBM3) as a putative cancer biomarker was based on its differential expression in various cancer forms in the Human Protein Atlas (HPA). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Immune modulation in serous epithelial ovarian cancer focus on the role of tumor-derived exosomes

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umea University

    Författare :Alireza Labani Motlagh; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ovarian cancer; EOC; HGSC; exosomes; NKG2D; MICA B; ULBP; DNAM-1; PVR; nectin-2; lncRNAs; immune suppression; anti-tumor immunity; NK-cell cytotoxicity; cytokines; Th1; Th2; T regulatory response; inflammation; tumor microenvironment;

    Sammanfattning : Serous epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is a potent suppressor of the immune defense. Here, we studied interactions between EOC and the immune system that lead to escape from tumor immune surveillance. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Immunohistochemical and molecular studies on ovarian cancer progression and prognosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Pathology, Lund University

    Författare :Björn Nodin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epithelial ovarian cancer; prognostic and predictive biomarkers; tissue microarrays; androgen receptor; RBM3; Chek1; Chek2; MCM3; Dachshund 2; SATB1; KRAS mutation;

    Sammanfattning : Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the most lethal malignancy of the female reproductive tract. Due to vague symptomatology, the majority of EOC patients are diagnosed in advanced clinical stages with poor survival rates, despite improvements in surgical techniques and the advent of targeted therapeutics.

  4. 4. Early Diagnosis of Epithelial Ovarian Cancer - Analysis of Novel Biomarkers

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Björg Kristjansdottir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epithelial Ovarian Cancer; Ovarian cyst fluid; Tumor biomarkers; Proteomics; Pelvic mass; Mass Spectometry; SELDI-TOF MS; iTRAQ;

    Sammanfattning : Early Diagnosis of Epithelial Ovarian Cancer - Analysis of Novel Biomarkers Björg Kristjánsdóttir Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Institute of Clinical Sciences at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden ABSTRACT Background: Majority of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is detected in advanced stage with bad prognosis and high mortality. Reliable diagnostic markers are lacking, pre-cancerous lesions in the more aggressive tumors are not clearly defined, vague or unspecific early symptoms, and the localization of the ovaries, deep in the pelvis contributes to late diagnose.

  5. 5. Hormone concentrations during pregnancy and maternal risk of epithelial ovarian cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Helena Schock; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; epithelial ovarian cancer; sex steroid hormones; IGF-I; placental GH; AMH; pregnancy; prospective study; patologi; Pathology;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The aim of this thesis was to study the relationship of pre-diagnostic circulating concentrations of sex steroid hormones (androgens, estradiol, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, and progesterone), growth factors (insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), placental growth hormone (GH)), sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) with risk of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) overall, and by tumor invasiveness and histology. A longitudinal study was used to assess patterns of hormonal changes during a single pregnancy, and in two consecutive pregnancies. LÄS MER
