1. Genetic studies in rheumatoid arthritis : familial studies and analysis of relationships to atherothrombotic comorbidity
Sammanfattning : Background. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease mainly affecting the joints but has also extra articular manifestations and an increased cardiovascular (CV) co-morbidity. Rheumatoid factor (RF) and antibodies against citrullinated proteins/peptides (ACPA) are diagnostically important and are related to a more severe disease. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer is a large and increasing medical problem both in Sweden and in the rest of the developed world, with about 300.000 new cases diagnosed world wide annually. Despite the high incidence of this disease, little is known about the aetiology of prostate cancer. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (TAAD) have a genetic component with an estimated 20-25% of the patients having a positive family history. An aneurysm often precedes a dissection. Acute aortic dissections are associated with high mortality and morbidity, even when operated on. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a hereditary disorder caused by mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, which leads to adenoma formation and subsequently to cancer, predominantly in the colon and the rectum but also in the duodenum. The cancer morbidity and mortality can be decreased by presymtomatic screening and surgical treatment. LÄS MER
5. Familial amyloidosis with polyneuropathy : studies of genetic factors modifying the phenotype of the disease
Sammanfattning : Background. Familial Amyloidosis with Polyneuropathy (FAP) is an autosomal dominantly inherited systemic amyloid disease. The disease is caused by mutations in the transthyretin (TTR) gene, where close to 100 different amyloidogenic mutations have been identified. LÄS MER
