    Sammanfattning :  Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in females worldwide. Despite the growing body of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) regarding the use of various treatment strategies (chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, radiotherapy) in breast cancer, the efficacy of some strategies remains unclear and questionable.

  3. 3. Novel methods for dose-response meta-analysis

    Författare :Alessio Crippa; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Dose–response meta-analysis is a statistical procedure for combining and contrasting the evidence on the association between a continuous exposure and the risk of a health outcome. Different papers refined selected aspects of the methodology, such as implementation of flexible strategies and extensions to multivariate meta-analysis. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Evolutionary consequences of maternal effects and stress

    Författare :Piotr K. Rowiński; Björn Rogell; Karl Gotthard; Katja Räsänen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; parental effects; meta-analysis; development time; bet-hedging; brain size; evolutionary potential; unpredictable environments; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Maternal effects occur when maternal environment or phenotype influence offspring phenotype, in addition to genetic contribution of the mother. As maternal effects often influence phenotypes that are under natural selection, they hence have evolutionary consequences. LÄS MER

  5. 5. International Outcomes of Total Hip Arthroplasty: Influence of Patient, Implant, and Surgical factors on Total Hip Arthroplasty Survivorship in Sweden, the US, and Australia

    Författare :Elizabeth W. Paxton; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total Hip Arthroplasty; International outcomes; Variation in clinical practices; Risk of hip arthroplasty revision; meta-analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Background Hip osteoarthritis (OA) is debilitating disease resulting in pain, stiffness, and reduced physical function. Although total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a successful treatment for OA, some THAs require revision surgery due to infection, dislocation, aseptic loosening, fracture and other reasons. LÄS MER
