Sammanfattning : Invasions of non-native species cause problems in ecosystems worldwide, and despite the extensive effort that has been put into research about invasions, we still lack a good understanding for why some, but not other, communities resist these invasions. In this doctoral thesis I test hypotheses on biotic resistance using a large dataset of more than 1000 both failed and successful introductions of freshwater fish into Swedish lakes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mechanisms of malignant transformation and cancer invasion and factors controlling them in response to various stimuli remain elusive. We used proteomics and systems biology to explore these mechanisms in human breast epithelial cells. The objective has been to identify a set of biomarkers for diagnostics and prognostics of breast cancer. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The early detection of neoplastic lesions is most critical in the successful treatment of malignant disease. This thesis investigates molecular targets for an improved detection and diagnosis of cancer by exploring the value of interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to detect specific chromosomal aneuploidies and gene amplifications, and laminin-5 gamma2 chain expression detected by immunohistochemistry as a marker for invasiveness.

4. Search for markers and molecular mechanisms of aggressive endometrial cancer : profiling of aggressive vs non-aggressive endometrial cancers
Sammanfattning : Endometrial cancer is the seventh frequent type of cancer among women. Identification of new prognostic markers is important to optimize treatment and follow-up of all EC patients. Understanding the molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis may pave through discovery of further EC molecular markers. LÄS MER
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
