  1. 1. Genomic Profiling, Mutations and Deranged Signaling in Esophageal Cancer and Hereditary Colorectal Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Anna Isinger Ekstrand; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Esophageal cancer; hereditary cancer; HNPCC; copy number analysis; CGH; gene expression; Wnt; PIK3CA; CHEK2; gastric cancer; colorectal cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Esophageal cancer and colorectal cancer represents two major types of gastrointestinal tumors. Though refined surgery and introduction of novel chemotherapeutics have improved outcome, more than 2500 Swedes die from these diseases every year. Novel markers for early diagnosis, prognosis and treatment prediction are therefore needed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Nuclear medicine imaging of lung cancer and esophagus cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lung cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) occur in cancer tissue, and 99mTc-depreotide is a labelled somatostatin receptor analogue, binding to SSTRs subtype 2, 3, and 5. Purpose: The general aim of the present thesis was to study somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SSTRS) with 99mTc-depreotide in the diagnosis and characterization of cancers in the lung and oesophagus.

    Sammanfattning : Technological advancements have enabled quantification of processes within and around us. The information stored within our body converts into petabytes of data. Processing and learning from such data requires comprehensive computational programs and software systems. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Biological Functions of Iduronic Acid in Chondroitin/Dermatan Sulfate in Tumor and Brain Development

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Författare :Martin Thelin; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; iduronic acid; chondroitin sulfate; esophagus squamous cell carcinoma; cancer; MET receptor; dermatan sulfate; hepatocyte growth factor; DS-epimerase 2; DS-epimerase 1;

    Sammanfattning : Cell behavior such as migration and proliferation, especially during cancer development, are balanced by the surrounding environment. Complex polysaccharides called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are part of this environment and they are known to modulate tumor development. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cancer of the Esophagus and Gastric Cardia Etiological Aspects

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, -

    Författare :Jesper Lagergren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]

    Sammanfattning : Esophageal cancer is one of the most lethal forms of cancer and the prognosis has not improved substantially during recent decades despite new treatments and diagnostic methods. In view of these discouraging results it is important to identify risk factors that might make primary prevention possible. LÄS MER
