  1. 1. Human papillomavirus in recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, tonsillar and mobile tongue cancer

    Författare :Christos Loizou; Katarina Olofsson; Karin Nylander; David Lindquist; Göran Laurell; Stina Syrjänen; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human papillomavirus; recurrent respiratory papillomatosis tonsillar cancer; mobile tongue cancer; voice-; and quality of life; p16; syndecan-1; northern Sweden;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the effects of the human papillomavirus (HPV) in tonsillar cancer, mobile tongue cancer, and recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP). The purpose was to characterize patients with RRP in northern Sweden in order to identify more care-intensive RRP patients and to describe the voice and quality of life aspects that follow RRP.

  2. 2. Oral and Oropharyngeal Cancer - Aspects on Epidemiology and Prognostic Markers

    Sammanfattning : Head and neck cancer is a heterogeneous group of tumours, although histopathologically, >95% are squamous cell carcinomas (SCC). Some tumours respond better to therapy than others. Not enough is known to predict the outcome and tailor individualised treatment. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies on the occurrence and effects of human papillomavirus in tumors of the head and neck

    Författare :David Lindquist; Tina Dalianis; Sonia Andersson; Karolinska Institutet Institutionen för onkologi-patologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; onkologi; Oncology;

    Sammanfattning : The presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC) was first reported in 1985. Since then, this association has been studied intensively and today there is substantial evidence for HPV as a causative agent and positive prognostic factor for clinical outcome in tonsillar cancer, but the association to other HNSCC is still unclear.

  4. 4. Biomolecular markers in head and neck cancer

    Författare :Eva Lindell Jonsson; Göran Laurell; Karin Nylander; Marika Nestor; Linda Marklund; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Head and neck cancer is a heterogeneous group of tumours, of which certain subgroups such as cancer of the mobile tongue frequently are associated with a relatively poor prognosis due to the high risk of regional failure and mortality rates that haven’t improved in a significant way over the last 3 decades, despite advancements in both diagnostics and treatment.Today we lack means to assess the biological aggressiveness of each individual tumour, which varies largely.

  5. 5. Studies on the presence and influence of human papillomavirus (HPV) in head and neck tumors

    Författare :Liselotte Dahlgren; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Head and neck cancer; tonsillar cancer; tongue cancer; human papillomavirus; viral load; survival; comparative genomic hybridization; respiratory papillomatosis; Interferon-alpha;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to confirm the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) in tonsillar cancer and the previous finding that presence of HPV in tonsillar cancer is prognostic favorable for patient survival. Furthermore, the physical state and viral load of HPV in tonsillar cancer, and the influence of HPV on chromosomal patterns and on the clinical outcome for tonsillar cancer patients were examined.
